Bella Hadid stepped out today in New York City in a look that gave us deja vu. She wore a preppy mustard-yellow sweater that read “Victoria” with a white collar popping out from underneath, and continued the scholastic bent by carrying a notebook. The vibe was artfully offset with a pair of Playboy-print pants that featured cover model Debbie Ellison from 1970, from a collaboration between the magazine and the Danish brand Soulland. Sound familiar? Look familiar? That’s because Hadid actually wore the pant out back in July with an über tiny white long-sleeve crop top.
It’s a welcome outfit repeat. There’s pressure for certain celebrities to wear totally new outfits all the time, whether they’re fresh-from the-runway or archival vintage. And while some of these clothes are called in by stylists and not actually owned by the celebrity, it gives the impression that people have to consume more and more in order to be on trend. Outfit repeating and finding different ways to style a beloved statement piece is a stellar way to give clothes some more love, and send a mindful message. We look forward to seeing those Playboy pants again, Bella!
