Bella Hadid Just Wore This Forgotten Summer Accessory With the Simplest Dress Trend

I've long looked to Bella Hadid when on the hunt for new-season outfit inspiration. Often one of the first to debut a new trend, Hadid manages to weave interesting items into her daily outfits in a way that feels chic and wearable. With insider access to the fashion industry, her styling instincts have resulted in an enviably cool wardrobe full of stylish staples and personality pieces alike. She really has the balance of both down to a T.

Showcasing yet another great look, Hadid stepped out in Cannes wearing a simple outfit that delivered elegance in droves. Swapping out an LBD for a fresh white dress, the model chose an asymmetric style for her day on the French Riviera. Keeping her accessories minimal and relaxed, what stood out to me most was how she reached for a selection of gold bangles to elevate her look.

Whilst gold bangles will never go out of style, the past few seasons have seen daintier bracelets take the lead—think the fine, welded chains everyone seemed to be adding to their wrists last year. However, it looks like '90s-style bangles are set for a revival, with Hadid using hers to add a point of difference to her classic ensemble.

Bangles are once again becoming a staple in the jewellery rotations of fashion people. The accessory allows the wearer to decorate themselves in some sparkle without relinquishing their minimalist or classy aesthetic. I've seen influencers opting for one more sizeable piece to several bangles stacked together. The one thing they all have in common? They all seem to be wearing them with simple outfits, which further adds to the bangle's throwback, '90s appeal.

Across high-street and designer brands, the bangle trend is back, and though I love COS' hammered design, Jil Sander's cuff is firmly on my wish list.
