Fashion waits for no one, and as fickle New York weather continues to keep meteorologists guessing, metropolitan street style stars are up for the challenge. Acting as a lightweight layer to protect from gusts of wind without causing hot flashes by mid-day, Kendall Jenner's snake-print jacket pulled her daytime look together last Thurs., days after the model donned vivid orange feathers at the 2019 Met Gala. Toning things down with a more neutral look, the 23-year-old left the Bowery Hotel while onlookers took notes on the off-duty outfit.
Striking a balance between low-key and fashion-forward, Jenner laid the groundwork for effortless spring style that reads cool yet sophisticated. Alongside a pair two-toned straight-leg black jeans, her brown leather blazer channeled the western-inspired wave everyone from Bella Hadid to Elle Fanning has gotten behind.
Rounding out the structured look with a touch of femme via a lacy camisole and kitten heel Stuart Weitzman mules, the well-balanced look was complete with understated rectangular sunglasses. With a fresh face, lip gloss, and simple straight hair, the eldest Jenner sister stayed true to her under-the-radar reputation, while opting out of vibrant hues in gloomy New York.
From fashion editors to runway models, it-girls can't get enough of a good blazer this season. Paired with matching trousers, bike shorts, or re-worked as a dress, the work-ready staple is enjoying a shining moment that doesn't seem to be slowing down. Jenner's snake print version is more fitted than its oversized counterparts, and simultaneously signals that the animal-print trend is alive and well.
With the versatility to finish off an array of looks, the statement outerwear deserves a spot in your spring jacket lineup. With plenty of options on the market, check out The Zoe Report's selection of Kendall-approved styles, ahead.
