Did Gigi Hadid just solidify the “dad sneaker” trend? After stepping out in a chunky pair of kicks by Ash, the model seems to have made a case for the masses to hop on the ugly shoe bandwagon.While the style was popular in the ’80s with Princess Diana and the cast of Working Girl, Balenciaga‘s been credited with bringing the shoes back with its “Triple S” sneakers, which retail for $895. Other luxury brands like Louis Vuitton followed with its Archlight sneakers and Gucci with the Rhyton leather logo sneakers. The popularity of the footwear style can also be attributed to the rise of “normcore,” which has spun off into a subset called “dadcore” and where this sneaker style naturally fits into.Surprisingly, these designer versions are seriously expensive. But after the big fashion houses started to roll out versions, other more affordable labels like Mango and Zara came out with their own. Plus, classic sneaker labels like Nike, Fila, and Skechers followed suit, bringing back their retro sneakers, such as Nike’s Air Max 96 and 97.If you love this style, shop 9 dad sneakers ahead, including Hadid’s version.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Is Gigi Hadid on her way to having the most Vogue covers ever? • Bart Simpson is fashion’s latest muse • Shop 13 boat neck summer tops inspired by Meghan MarkleFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Balenciaga has taken a past favorite (ranging from roughly $7 to $13 on Amazon) and given it the fashion treatment — as well as an unbelievable price point.
The best symbol of the fluctuating, fickle nature of fashion is the scrunchie. The ubiquitous hair tie of the ’80s and ’90s has been declared fashionable again, so much so that Balenciaga is selling one for $185. Editors at Vogue and Racked have waxed philosophical on this development, while social media abounds with fashion fans firmly declaring themselves pro and con scrunchie.
Yahoo Style rounded up seven chic weekender bags that you can take with you to all of your travels this holiday weekend and beyond.
In the fashion world, seasons are always one step ahead. When snow is still fresh on the ground, designers are already thinking about bikinis. So, as it goes, while the summer sun is still strong, brands are already releasing their fall 2017 ad campaigns, teasing shoppers with what will soon grace stores and tempt wallets.The latest campaign is a bit of a head scratcher. Ugg teamed up with Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan, Kim Gordon of rock brand Sonic Youth, and seven other talents spanning the fields of fashion, business, music, and art for their fall fashion campaign. Interestingly, the traditionally winter-centric brand decided to shoot their ads in the heart of sunny California, and features MacLachlan, Gordon, and others clad in their new ’70s retro-style fall apparel.However, familiar faces continue to front the ads. Gigi Hadid stars in four campaigns — and counting — whereas BFF Kendall Jenner and sister Bella Hadid trail behind with just one campaign each (Fendi and Giuseppe Zanotti, respectively).Although It-girls of the moment aren’t the only stars booking big jobs. Kate Moss continues to showcase her modeling prowess after 30 years in the business, starring alongside Oscar nominated actress Naomie Harris in the newest Miu Miu campaign.Big-time industry names aren’t needed to make a major impact though as Calvin Klein proves with the meta universe created by Raf Simons showing models posing in front of the brand’s past billboards.Gucci took a similar approach shirking the Hadids and Jenners of the world, but went in a more avant-garde direction. Creative director Alessandro Michele situates the campaign in an alien world inspired by the 1950s and 1960s sci-fi genre and Star Trek. Models dressed in head-to-toe Gucci are juxtaposed against a backdrop filled with UFOs, dinosaurs, and phaser beams.Click ahead to get inspired by all of the season’s best fall fashion campaigns before you begin to shop for your fall wardrobe.Read more from Yahoo Style + Beauty: • What to Wear to the Top 5 Classic Summer Wedding Locations • The Trendiest Sandals of the Summer Cost Less Than $100 • Is the Wrap Dress Universally Flattering?

For his final collection for Balenciaga that was shown in October, the designer’s parade of all-white looks were accessorized with bags that were lace recreations of something that you’d get from the deli. Is this a posh reminder to do away with plastic? Perhaps, but one needn’t pay a small fortune to get the message. Alternative versions (at the more reasonable price of $9) can be found here.
