The answer to finding out what your favorite color is, if you don’t know, lies in studying your sartorial inclinations. Do you only wear gray pieces? It’s likely you find comfort in this neutral shade. Is your closet solely composed of pastels? You probably enjoy cheerful, optimistic hues. You can apply this same type of deduction on your friends, family, and even favorite celebs to uncover their favorite colors. For Kendall Jenner, her many brown outfits over the years prove the chocolate-colored shade is her preferred neutral. Jenner’s looks in this color category have ranged from light caramels to deep mahogany, thereby giving this rich hue a fair chance to step out of black’s shadow.

The supermodel has varying methods to styling brown clothing. As you’ll see below, she’s partial toward a monochromatic outfit like opting for a pair of brown Yeezy slides to finish off an all-brown sweatsuit moment. As seen with her go-to dark overcoat from Mannei Irbid and creamy two-piece leather suit, Jenner also loves milk chocolate-colored leather. All of the 26 year old’s brown looks quintessentially capture her off-duty model style and also demonstrate why the neutral shade makes a warmer alternative to the usual colder black hue.

Below, you’ll find all the ways Jenner works brown into her ensembles, as well as some pieces in this color palette to shop. Some of the items are exact matches from Jenner’s street style looks, so you can replicate her outfit down to the color and brand.

A Vintage-Inspired Trouser


Jenner made a case for brown leather pants as a sleek night-out staple. To attend a party at celeb hotspot The Nice Guy, she wore a pair of belted, low-rise bottoms with a faded finish that added a vintage vibe. She styled the outfit with a black crop top (for a midriff peek-a-boo effect), slingback kitten heels, and a shoulder bag.

Jenner can pull off an on-point business casual look. For a day of running errands in West Hollywood, she picked out a brown, menswear-inspired blazer from Sandro and styled it in the most unconventional way. Her clever trick included layering the piece over a crisp white button-down and a basic white tee at the same time. And the best part? Even those who work at an office can take after the stylish supermodel and copy her look, if your dress code allows.

In October 2021, the model stepped out in New York City while wearing this cozy polka dot sweater. Her autumnal piece was from Acne Studios. The shade of her Dumpling bag from Peter Do matched back to her spotted top. Jenner wore a pair of classic straight-leg jeans and black Chelsea boots to complete the look.

A Head-To-Toe Monochromatic Moment


No one is immune to the pandemic-induced loungewear look, and that includes Jenner. For her casual at-home ensemble, the supermodel wore a deep brown sweatsuit from Cherry Los Angeles, as well as matching Yeezy slides. It’s subtle but Jenner’s look did feature a pop of rainbow, which you can find in her candy-inspired phone strap from celebrity-beloved brand String Ting.

Jenner chose a knit crewneck sweater in a soft toffee shade, a white turtleneck, and a pair of light khakis for this ‘90s inspired look. She also stepped out in a pair of dark brown loafers, which added depth and richness to the outfit.

Jenner offset her coat and bottom’s warm cappuccino hues by pairing them with a white tank top and a pair of white sneakers, a go-to footwear choice for the supermodel. This sleek outfit was a prime example of when dressy meets casual.

A graphic print set on a brown background? Jenner loves it. She turned to this Marine Serre crescent top, a signature pattern from the indie brand, in a chocolate shade that offered an eye-catching detail when contrasted with her classic black leather trench. She kept the look timeless with a pair of medium-wash jeans and beige pumps.

A Touch Of Black

Black is fashion’s reigning neutral staple and, here, Jenner gives a nod to the legendary shade while wearing her favorite neutral: brown. She styled her black leggings with a brown jacket featuring oversized pockets and wore knee-high lace-up boots from Dorateymur. A furry brown Fendi bag completed the going-out look.
