The fashion world has been eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated return of Bella Hadid.
After maintaining a low profile to prioritize her health, glimpses of the wealthy supermodel‘s return have been scarce.
However, on Tuesday, December 12, Bella made a stunning street-style comeback outside her older sister Gigi Hadid’s NoHo apartment in New York City, signaling her readiness to resume her role as a style sensation.

Having taken a hiatus from the spotlight, the 27-year-old’s recent reappearance was characterized by a more subdued and minimalistic approach to street style.
It marked a notable shift from her usual kooky, colorful, and maximalist fashion choices, hinting at a potential entry into her minimalist era.
Adorned in a streamlined black turtleneck and wide-leg Susamusa Oring trousers to combat the chilly NYC weather, Bella introduced a touch of sophistication with a reversible trench coat featuring a two-toned lapel.

The light khaki trench with a chocolate-brown interior showcased her penchant for elevating conventional looks. The rolled-up sleeves unveiled the coat’s lining, injecting personality into the ensemble.
In a nod to her thrifty fashion sense, the Kin Euphorics founder sported archival 1999 black leather Prada Linea Rossa boots with thick heels and square toes, emphasizing her dedication to timeless and playful accessories.
Continuing her commitment to sustainability, she carried a large vintage Nahui Ollin handbag featuring a black and white checkered design crafted from upcycled newspaper scraps and candy wrappers.

Bella complemented her minimalist attire with delicate jewelry, including gold earrings and a mix of gold and silver rings.
The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend maintained an air of mystery, shielding her eyes with Dmy by Dmy Olsen dark grey lens rectangular sunglasses.
Choosing a no-makeup makeup look, Bella’s neutral, glossy, rosy pink lips complemented her overall aesthetic, with her long, dark brunette hair styled in trademark curly waves.
