In eighth grade, the most cool, grown-up thing you could wear was an off-shoulder top. We'd show up to first period wearing a white Roxy sweater with our collar bones barely peeking out and we were certain we had left the whole class positively gooped and gagged. We were serving gala-ready elegance without any grand occasion (unless of course it was a field trip day, in which case, consider us the belle of the ball!).

All these years later, the off-shoulder top is still a moment. It's swerved in and out of vogue a few times since then, but as Bella Hadid seemed to indicate with her outfit yesterday, the coquettish, slashed-neck piece might be ready to go from statement to staple just in time for spring.

Alongside a pair of Denim Tears x Levi's jeans and a checkered Burberry bag, Hadid wore a light pink sweater top with a fold-over neckline that reached from shoulder to shoulder. Everything from the top's retro, Baby Spice hue to its handkerchief hem screamed "the '00s are back," but clearly with a more adult edge. That's not all, though: The top's exposed upper and enclosed lower parts, while seemingly at odds with one another, are in fact a bullseye solution to this, dare I say, shoulder season's conflicting temperatures.

If Bella Hadid weren't already the most intimidatingly cool girl in middle school, her off-shoulder top makes it official. Shop shoulder-baring styles from Amazon and Nordstrom, starting at $16, below.
