Want to know a secret, Candy Girls? There is rarely anything new when it comes to fashion. Our moms and their moms have obsessed about the white sneakers, overalls, slip dresses, and other must-have pieces of today's time when they were in college, too. But what makes fashion fun and exciting is how girls turn an old trend into something new, fresh, and modern. And that is exactly what Bella Hadid did when she reintroduced to her 300-thousand followers on Instagram the '00s smocked tube top. Read on to see how the bardot top's mom proves that oldies can be fun and cool. Plus, how you can rock this old school top, too!

Instead of giving the smocked tube top a modern flair, keep it's vintage feel by wearing your top with a pair of old blue denim shorts. End the look with a pair of sneakers to keep the outfit young and fun!


The smocked texture of the smocked tube top gives off a raw and almost brazen feel. Pair the top with a feminine midi skirt to balance the cheekiness of the top and don’t be scared to add accessories like a cool head scarf.

For a more street casual OOTD, match the vintage smocked tube top with an equally vintage piece like a pair of overalls!

Keep your outfit fresh and modern by opting for a pair of printed shorts to go with your borrowed from the past smocked top.

Bring the '00s to the present by going for a smocked tube top and high-waist jeans combo! Tie a trendy neckerchief around your neck to keep the OOTD up-to-the-minute without breaking a sweat.
