Kendall Jenner just took menswear to the next level by wearing actual men's pants. The model is getting ready to walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after putting her wings away for a year, and on Mon., she wore the most unexpected trousers to her Midtown fitting. Kendall Jenner's yellow plaid pants will show you the right way to style menswear.
The 23-year-old isn't shy with her off-duty style. She's constantly pushing the envelope with unconventional combinations, rocking eccentric silhouettes, and bringing back retro looks you probably thought you'd never see again. This time, the model is wearing pants from the men's department, giving a whole new meaning to the latest menswear trend.
The gold trousers were part of Raf Simons' Autumn/Winter 2018 collection. They're slim-fit with a fall-ready checkered print and super-long legs that bunch at the bottom. The sideways pocket placed on the thigh gives these trousers a unique detail, too. Jenner wore them with a basic black oversized hoodie and added a feminine touch by finishing off the look with sleek square-toed boots and a little black handbag.
Not many people are quite bold enough to wear pants from the men's aisle, but this model certainly is. And why not? Allow Jenner's ensemble to be your new go-to guide for sporting the menswear trend yourself.
Get The Look
This isn't the first time Jenner has taken menswear so literally. In 2017, she sported a striped two-piece suit set by Los Angeles-based designer Wolk Morais that originally debuted on a male model. She even took it a step further by accessorizing it with a faux pixie cut and a rustic sling bag. Earlier this year, the model even made a surprise appearance on the menswear catwalk of Milan Fashion Week alongside pal Gigi Hadid. Both wore floral dresses in the Versace Spring/Summer 2019 show.
Now more than ever before, designers have been blurring the lines between gender norms. Haider Ackermann, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and others have all recently opted for co-ed catwalks.
And Jenner is certainly no stranger to the menswear trend, always sporting oversized blazers and boxy, masculine silhouettes. Her latest look is proof, however, that these pieces don't always have to look so hard — Jenner paired the pants with feminine heeled boots. Balance out your menswear-inspired trousers with a soft, tie-neck blouse, an elegant long wool coat, or sophisticated heels like Jenner's. Her plaid-print pants are just the right look for winter, too.
