When two models like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner wear the same style on the same day, that’s certainly worth paying attention to. Such was the case Wednesday when the duo lunched together at the new Nobu downtown in New York wearing two takes on mom jeans. Their actual-mom model peers have been bringing a sexy new meaning to the pant style, though the 21-year-olds took a more literal approach to the ’80s mainstay while weaving in notes from other decades.
With the exception of her Monse jeans, Jenner’s look was rooted in the ’90s thanks to her micro floral–print Eckhaus Latta turtleneck and quilted Chanel fanny pack. The throwback accessory has become a Jenner street style signature—one that has rubbed off on her rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky. She tied it together with Adidas high-tops and matching Illesteva sunglasses in the same shade. Hadid took her cues from the ’50s. The Rebecca Minkoff sweater was embroidered with the her name, a retro detail she has extended to her pajama dressing before. When coupled with cat-eye sunglasses by Le Specs x Adam Selman, the color-coordinated pair read more Pink Ladies than anything. She wore her Tommy Hilfiger denim cuffed at the right place to show off Reebok sneakers, further underlining the ’80s heritage of her newly hip jeans.
