Florals may be the unofficial print of spring and summer, but Kendall Jenner's cheetah dress is proof that animal motifs are just as in demand this time of year. From snakeskin to bold tiger stripes, celebs have rocked every wild pattern imaginable. But the one that continues to be the most favored of all? Cheetah spots — and they've finally earned the 23-year-old's stamp of approval.
If you follow Jenner's street-style outfits closely, you'll know the model loves a good snakeskin piece. She's donned everything from trousers to mini dresses covered in the neutral-leaning pattern — but for her Weds. lunch date, she chose to go a completely different route, opting instead for a daring mini dress.
Fashion-forward print aside, Jenner's long-sleeve mini, which was plucked straight from Christopher Kane's Resort 2019 collection, leans into the ever-popular '80s style craze perfectly. It features a buttoned V-neckline and sharp statement shoulders — two retro-inspired elements that instantly take the otherwise simple silhouette to entirely new heights.
Jenner further harked back on bygone decades with her accessories of choice. Slingback kitten heels by Stuart Weitzman felt very '80s, while her thin-rimmed, rectangular-shaped sunglasses — which have quickly become her street-style signature — channeled the '90s to a T. A mini Chloé bag completed her off-duty ensemble, while offering up a smart, feminine touch.
The beauty of Jenner's simple but fashion-forward dress is that it can be styled in countless ways. The model took a dressier approach for her mid-afternoon lunch, but she could have easily opted for white sneakers in lieu of kitten heels. You can also throw a leather (or denim) jacket, bold waist belt, or neon-green handbag into the mix.
