Fashion rules are made for breaking!  We are often told that wearing horizontal stripes can be unflattering because they create the illusion of a widened frame. Well, Kendall Jenner is here to turn that rule on its head.

The supermodel was spotted out and about on Wednesday, June 6, in NYC looking the part — and breaking fashion rules while she was at it. Jenner was rocking a horizontally striped mini with a couple of twists: it was sequined, multi-colored and the stripes varied in size. The adorable frock in question, from Ralph Lauren’s Spring 18 collection (currently sold out), wasn’t just fun and whimsical. Rather, because of the various tricks of the eye, particularly the different colors of the stripes and their different widths that gave a narrowing visual effect, it was ultra-flattering because it nipped in Kendall’s tiny waist.

The artful tricks of the eye weren’t the only display of supermodel KJ’s fashion prowess. The reality TV star expertly paired the updated classic look with accessories that were all throwback. For example: she carried a Prada nylon hobo bag that looked like it was straight out of Sex and the City, and perched a pair of thin-frame Kendall + Kylie Collection glasses perched at the tip of her nose. All in all, the look was sporty-girl-goes fashion and it was perfection.


This isn’t the first time that Kendall remixed a classic. A few months ago, Jenner (and her sisters) stepped up for a pick up game of softball, at which she reinvented Adidas shorts — see the looks here!
