Kendall Jenner's style aesthetic is an ever-revolving door of trendy meets minimalism. When you have access to every fashion brand in the world, inspiration for the next outfit awaits around every corner. Just take her gallery-hopping look, which featured a pair of tailored yet baggy pants from The Row, or her Mirror Palais miniskirt co-ords from summer 2021 that felt flirty and sophisticated at the same time. Though the model loves to test out what’s cool, Jenner’s wardrobe staples are what she wears the most. That’s how you craft a signature style, after all.
As everyone knows, the best items in your closet are the ones that go with everything. Whether it be a favorite shoulder bag, a super soft white tee, or a pair of sneakers that take you all over town — the essentials are, well, essential. For the 26-year-old star, Jenner’s go-to items fit perfectly into all these categories and into her lifestyle: a purse size that is small enough for the basics but doesn’t weigh her down, a comfortable pair of shoes for running errands in, and a timeless pair of sunnies (to shield her eyes from the paparazzi cameras). There are more pieces she relies on, too, which you’ll discover ahead. Should you want to recreate any of her looks, simply shop the similar items provided.

Sweater vests are trending and Jenner is one of the celebrity trendsetters who can be credited for popularizing this look. The model’s expansive wardrobe includes a variety of fashionable sleeveless knit tops, ranging from tailored waistcoats to fun and cozy sweater vests. Take a cue from the stylish A-lister and wear one of the en vogue winter staples, below, with your favorite tee or turtleneck.
Jenner is one of the first celebs to champion the diciest of trends, including midriff flossing and flirty cutouts. (The model’s recent wedding guest dress is the perfect example of her fearless outfit choices.) At the same time, though, her outfits still feel very elevated and put-together. To balance out the daring peek-a-boo effect, pair your cutout shirts and crop tops with something a little more conservative, like a pair of tailored pants or a midi skirt à la Jenner.
Jenner’s known to be partial towards a monochromatic brown outfit or two when it comes to her off-duty style. Another one of her favorite shades to wear from top to bottom though, is a creamy white. Her go-to neutral pants are SLVRLKE’s high-rise straight-leg jeans in Ecru, which are currently in stock. White denim is a season-less staple, so take a tip from Jenner and style yours with a simple tank or a chunky beige sweater.
Never one to shy away from a vintage style moment, Jenner’s ‘90s oval sunglasses from DMY by DMY are a signature in her wardrobe. Her celebrity besties, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber, both can’t get enough of the brand’s retro flair either. There are plenty of oval frames on the market right now at every price point.
Matching Workout Sets
Fans of Jenner know the star is a longtime lover of athleisure brand Alo Yoga — she was first spotted in its Moto Leggings back in 2015. Since then, a partnership between the two has blossomed, which resulted in Alo Yoga launching the cutest Jenner-approved workout sets. Take a cue from the model and opt for matching sets of your own, whether they’re from Alo Yoga or not.
When it comes to handbags, the smaller the better for Jenner. Her favorite bag style is one that rests snuggly on her shoulders versus a supersize tote or a large carryall. Whether’s it’s a classic leather piece from celebrity-beloved brand BY FAR or a beaded item from STAUD, her bag always perfectly complements her outfit.
Unlike flip-flops, slides are a sleeker approach when it comes to quick and easy footwear. Hence, Jenner seems to always wear her YEEZY slides when out and about. The no-hassle shoes go with everything and can be transitioned into the fall and winter seasons, too, with the quick addition of socks.
There are many qualities that make a cropped tee the queen of essentials: it’s a tiny bit revealing but subtle, it hits just shy of your belly button, and it goes with every kind of bottom. Point being, it’s no wonder Jenner owns multiple cropped T-shirts in her outfit rotation. Best of all? Jenner’s Richer Poorer top is just $38, and it’s still available to shop.
