Kendall + Kylie: 5 Essential Pieces to Buy Now

Thursday, February 11, 2016 • Permalink • 

Kendall + Kylie, the new contemporary label from pop culture princesses Kendall and Kylie Jenner, landed in stores this week. Shockingly, I don’t hate it.

This is hardly the first fashion rodeo for the Jenner girls. They previously lent their names to capsule collections for both Pacsun and Topshop. Both of those outings skewed juniors – most appropriate for a teen or college-aged gal. But, this new line displays some serious contemporary chops. In fact, there are a handful of pieces that feel like instant must-haves. Check out the five essential pieces…

This cropped sweater and knit skirt combo is, by far, my favorite look. It’s simple and classic, with just a hint of edge. This is the classy way to show a little midriff.

Continuing the “classy hints of skin” trend, this cross-front dress is a summer dream. And, amazingly, it’s machine washable.

This pump is clearly positioned as the signature shoe of the inaugural line. It’s available in six color/ material combinations, but this blush suede is the standout.

I wasn’t expecting to find any truly original pieces, but this dress is completely unique. It’s a frothy combination of sheer panels, cutouts, and twisted nylon mesh that is ideal for a night out.

I first ran across this dress in white, and wasn’t impressed. But, this black version is like a little piece of ‘90s goth throwback heaven. As much as I love it as a dress, I think it would be even more fun paired with distressed skinnies.
