Bella Hadid Has Major Influence—7 Trends She's Made Famous This Year

There's no denying Bella Hadid's influence on fashion, especially in 2022. Not only did she walk 10 shows in Paris Fashion Week alone (Balenciaga, Victoria Beckham, and Miu Miu to name a few), but anything she wears is also quick to make it to the masses. The internet has even coined the term "Bella Bots" to describe those who follow Hadid's every sartorial move. The model revealed earlier this year that she had made the decision to go sans stylist, and it seems to have worked in her favor ever since. 

Her outfits always have a touch of nostalgia, ranging from early-aughts vintage to classic '90s-inspired pieces. She's also not one to walk away from taking a risk, often picking the trends the majority might find polarizing like long denim jorts or ultra-cropped tops. You never know what you're going to expect from Hadid's next outfit, and it's a surprise we always look forward to. 

Hadid has had plenty of viral moments in 2022 like the spray-paint moment at Coperni or her humorous The Office–obsessed character in Ramy season 2, but it's the standout trends she's been wearing this year that have really grasped our attention. Below, you'll find seven trends she's inspired us to give a try. And in no way did Bella Hadid invent the trends below, but her looks certainly had an impact on those who keep up with her style. Keep scrolling to be inspired and get ready to say "So… my… name… my name is Bella Hadid."

Long Denim Skirts

Remember the denim skirts every celebrity wore to the red carpet in the early 2000s? Well, they're back, and Bella Hadid has become an avid wearer of the style. While they might seem tricky to wear at first, you'll be surprised at how much you will gravitate toward them.

What once was known as the shoes one would wear to soccer practice have become the ultimate It sneakers. Once Hadid was spotted in the style, it immediately became challenging to find the shoe in stock. (Turn on alerts and you might get lucky—patience is a virtue.)

Sporty Jackets

Vintage-style track and collegiate jackets have been growing in popularity for a while now, and Hadid has only added to the momentum.

Platform Uggs

When Ugg first released the platform boots, we were surprised to see the lack of attention draw their way. And sure enough, Hadid stepped out in them and they quickly sold out in every color. (The Bella Bots move fast.)

You've seen this accessory trend on the runway at Miu Miu, but Hadid has been taking it to street style. Out of all the trends the model has championed, this one has to be the easiest to re-create.

Midi Skirts

Midi skirts are not a "new" trend by any means, but there's something about the way Hadid's been layering them this fall that makes you want to quickly throw one on.

Bermuda Shorts

There have been conversations among the fashion set on whether Bermuda shorts are actually back, but a quick scroll on TikTok will tell you otherwise. The most popular way to wear them is just how Hadid has above: with a pair of tall boots.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
