Lots of celebrities have embraced all things athleisure, and some are doing an especially good job of peppering their social feeds with sporty, well-styled shots. Among them is Bella Hadid. Whether it’s a chic tennis skirt or crocheted joggers and high-tops, her model-off-duty game is particularly strong. (Maybe that’s why Nike tapped her to be the face of its latest Cortez campaign.)

A lot of Hadid’s wardrobe influence comes from her stylist Elizabeth Sulcer. “I love activewear and think it works perfectly in street-style looks,” she says. “So many of my clients are into the idea because [it’s comfortable], while allowing them to incorporate high-fashion [elements].”

Not to mention the mileage you’ll get out of pieces that are able to pull double duty. It’s why the stylist predicts the trend “won’t be going away anytime soon.” (Phew!)

Here are 3 pieces, in particular, that Sulcer’s into right now. Plus, how she’d style them on the buzzy supermodel.

Get Started

Cropped t-shirts and sweatshirts

“I love a monochrome cropped tee [or sweatshirt] with oversized sweatpants, a really cool high-top sneaker, paired with a [designer] day bag and oversized sunglasses,” Sulcer says.

Our pick: NikeLab Essentials Cropped Hoodie, $200


Track pants

I’m really into a turtleneck or an off-the-shoulder bodysuit, paired with oversized track pants,” reveals the stylist. “It creates a look with a sexy, menswear, street vibe.” 

Our pick: Adidas Superstar Track Pants, $70


Active kicks

“I love all different types of sneakers,” Sulcer says. Same goes for Hadid—the model’s go-to styles include Nike Cortez (duh) and Air Force Ones, plus treads from more under-the-radar brands like Filling Pieces.

Our pick: Filling Pieces Runner 3.0 Low Fuse, $255
