Yolanda Foster has given the world a belated Christmas present by way of her Instagram, sharing a throwback snap of a toddler Gigi Hadid posing on the ski slopes of Aspen. The girl looks fierce in all her late ’90s fabulousness, but while the brightly printed ski duds have mostly been replaced by Kardashian-approved monochromes, there’s one stylistic choice we’ve seen grown-up Gigi rocking a lot recently.
Goofy, oversize ski pants and printed puffer aside, can you please zoom in on Gigi’s accessories? The top model still wears glasses every now and then, but we’re mostly interested in that skinny scarf she has tied tightly around the neck. The jaunty choker look was major in the ’90s and, thanks to G and bestie Kendall Jenner, it’s having a major resurgence as of late.
For a fall walk in Los Angeles, her beige-and-denim outfit was accented with a thin scarf tied snuggly at the neck.
She’d actually worn the exact same scarf/necklace look a few days earlier, matching it with a different light, neutral top and keeping all other accessories to a minimum.
The smart dresser has also shown the world how to take the look into formal territory, finishing off a saucy black bra top and skirt with a coordinating choker at an after party following this year’s American Music Awards.
With wintry weather around us now, it feels a little off to call the piece a legit scarf, but let’s be real—that silky number she rocked back in her toddler days wasn’t made for warmth either. Some things really do never change.
