Bella Hadid had athleisurely day in L.A.!

The 19-year-old model flaunted her fit frame in a beige leggings and crop top combo while grabbing lunch with her dad and later running errands with a friend. Her look was paired with a slicked back ponytail, reflecting shades and layered gold necklaces.

The Hadid ladies have taken to the athleisure trend, as Bella’s big sis Gigi Hadid, 21, has been known to rock the leggings and crop top look.

Bella seems to be having a blast with friends and family now that she’s back from her tropical getaway earlier this month. And the Hadids showed where they may have gotten some of their style tips since birth, posting birthday Instagrams about their big sister Alana Hadid earlier this week.

“Happy birthday to my twin big sis @lanzybear…thank you for teaching me pretty much everything I know and always being there for me when I need you. You are a light in my life as well as anybody that meets you! Also- you’re cool as f…,” Bella wrote in a post on Wednesday, showing the sisters in more relaxed athleisure looks than Bella’s nude co-ord.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
