Culottes have been big news for a minute now — but with a new season in the air, they're blowing up our Pinterest boards like nobody's biz. Still, many of us are far too timid to try the tricky trend, and that's where Gigi Hadid comes in. Like a blonde angel by way of Beverly Hills, the mega-model appeared at last night's Samsung Galaxy S6 launch in NYC to give us all a lesson in seasonal style. Our first takeaway? Don't be turned off by the wide-leg flare that screams '70s (which is srsly in right now, BTW). Channel Gigi's casual cinched waist effect by tucking in a sharp, collared shirt, and let the culottes' sleek tailoring take center stage. To finish the 'fit, remember that basic sometimes equals better. Trusty nude pumps or sandals are an easy win, and feel free to give your imaginary glam squad the night off — it's all about the clothes this time, ladies. Thanks, G… you're a champ.
