You already know this, but we can't get enough of Kendall Jenner's style. Be it street or red carpet (but especially street), whatever Kendall wears, we want—which is obviously great news for the designers behind Kendall's favourite fashion brands that she turns to time and time again. Talk about exposure!
From Kenneth Cole for those block-heeled patent boots to Re/Done for denim, Nike for her much-loved athleisure wear, and even her brother-in-law (you know Kanye, right?) for the odd statement piece, the fashion brands worn by Kendall are the ones every girl should have on her radar. One caveat, though—there are just no fashion labels beginning with "X", so budding designers looking to start their own collections, take note, this could be your opportunity to score some coverage if you name your brand correctly… Go through the gallery to see our A-Z of Kendall's favourite fashion brands.
If it's a top and it's cropped, it's for Kendall, and Are You Am I are the masters with great tanks, crops and bra tops. Kendall persuaded us that a velvet bralette in the summer IS a good idea.
It had to be, didn't it? Not only has she modelled for Balmain and also Balmain x HM (and sat front row for her brother-in-law's Yeezy x Balmain show), but the label has been a go-to brand for her red carpet choices too. Here, she wears the strapless cutout jumpsuit, teamed with a duo of chokers for an overall gothic look.
She might model for Calvin Klein, but she's been snapped in Citizens of Humanity denim twice this month, which clinched it for the C category. The faded black hue of the jeans helps to break up the overall dark black colour palette, and the high waist shapes her waist to enhance the much-loved signature crop.
Shop Kendall's Citizen of Humanity Carlie High Rise Skinny (£217).
Some shy away from camouflage—not Kendall, which she demonstrates via this Daniel Patrick number. We want to call it a dress, but it's actually a T-shirt—for men! It's the ultimate in boyfriend dressing.
Erika Cavallini clothes are made with painstaking craftsmanship, as indicated here by Kendall's duster coat in khaki. The distressed fabric complements the rips and frays in her Citizens of Humanity jeans, nailing one of this season's most popular combinations.
What else? This Fendi off-shoulder mini dress is from the Resort 17 collection and won't be available until November—but we can wait. Because those nautical stripes and ruffles belong in next year's holiday suitcase, no question.
It's big enough for all your essentials but small enough to count as hand luggage, so it's little wonder Kendall chooses to travel with her black leather Givenchy Lucrezia Micro Leather Shoulder Bag (£995).
She modelled for the Balmain x H&M Collection last year and now often favours the casual, cool designs of this affordable brand. It's earned its place on this list. The H&M grey biker jacket, here, is simple, but stylish… and no-one would guess it's from the high street.
Kendall's been seen many times wearing the Parisian brand IRO, famous for its comfortable street-appropriate creations (with a touch of French flair). She favours their distressed tees, like this example in grey. With a low hanging neck, paired with skinny jeans and a tailored white jacket, she shows how street-wear can be styled up.
Jonathan Simkhai's designs often take on the style rules of menswear, and since Kendall's wardrobe includes a number of masculine pieces, the pair is a perfect match. The Wrap Spill Intarsia Skirt she wears here has a knit texture, which hugs her frame, and the pencil shape provides a straight, narrow silhouette. Very elegant.
Yes, we could have said the model (and her sister's) own brand, Kendall + Kylie, but Kendall really really loves her Kenneth Coles. Case in point, the white KC sneakers she's been wearing all year. Showing she has more than just one pair by the designer, here she anchors a classic white jumpsuit with her Kenneth Cole Krystal Patent Leather Boots (£369).
We know she likes Louis Vuitton luggage (who doesn't?), but LV womenswear is part of Kendall's daily repertoire too. Here, she shows their Republic Ankle Boots (£965) some love. Close-up they have definite Oxford shoe vibes (i.e. masculine) but the block heel adds femininity. The overall look? Perfectly androgynous.
Julianne Moore and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are also fans of young designer Mathieu Mirano. Kendall's midnight blue/black gown from the A/W16 collection is all about fringing. Chic, alluring, dazzling.
She spends a fair amount of time at the gym, so it makes sense that a sportswear brand would feature among her favourites. Whilst Adidas appears from time to time, here Kendall's opted for Nike, or a pair of Nike Free TR Flyknit (£105) to be precise.
What says rock 'n' roll' more than these leather shorts from One Teaspoon? Little else! Designed to be worn low, Kendall bucks the trend to wear them high. Why? So she can pair them with a crop, naturally. Could look a touch revealing for street style were it not for that monochrome duster coat. Nice touch.
It was Proenza Schouler that Kendall wore on her first US Vogue cover earlier this year, so the brand will have special associations for her. A sophisticated label, known for its artistic inspirations, it aligns with Kendall's love for simple colours and modern cuts—here she's pictured in a Proenza coat.
Kendall was first spotted wearing these Quay Australia cat-eye sunglasses back in 2014—paired casually with a striped, ribbed dress from Alexander Wang—and now, unfortunately, you can't buy them anywhere. You can, however, browse Quay's new styles at Urban Outfitters.
If you don't own Re/Done denim in some capacity, you can't be on the A-list. Basically. Kendall has many pairs, and here shows off the genius tailoring of the reconstructed Levi's brand by wearing them in cut-off form. Her thigh-high boots are a punchy addition—but the look is downplayed (and balanced) by the Janey Lopaty vintage tee.
You can't go to Coachella without a pair of gladiator sandals, or, rather, you now can't go without Saint Laurent's Babies Suede Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals (£855), thanks to Kendall. Miss Jenner, as we know, loves a boot, and these half boot, half sandals were a perfect combination of the two—with a modest and festival-friendly block heel to, er, boot.
Well, she designs for them so, again, no surprises here. This snap shows Kendall dressed in a Topshop sweater and tracksuit (it makes sense to use high street for your slouch-time pieces, right?) but what elevates this look is the pairing of these basic wardrobe necessities with a little luxury—or a lotta luxury: Miu Miu Metal Trim Sneakers (£370) and a Balenciaga Classic Metallic Edge City Leather Tote (£875). For pointers on how to pair high-street with high-end fashion, look no further.
No one makes athleisure wear more covetable than Kendall, and Unravel is amongst the most luxurious of athleisure wear brands on the market. Check out the sumptuous sleeves of this Raw Hem Hoodie (£322). As if the piece doesn't look comfy enough already, it even gives her wrists a hug when the temperature dips.
Trust Kendall to wear the leggings that everyone wanted last year. Wilfred Free for Aritzia Vegan Daria Pants (£103) are made with vegan leather from Japan, which makes them soft, stretchy and flexible. They're high-waisted too, which suits Kendall as she can—once again— pair them with an abs-baring crop. For a flash of colour, she's added a showstopping, sumptuous The Perfext jacket in leopard-print. So W is also for "wild."
The Kardashian/Jenners are nothing if not a strong family unit, so it makes sense that Kendall would choose to—on occasion—support her brother-in-law, Kanye West, by wearing his Yeezy label. This distressed denim jacket has "Pablo" on the back, in reference to Kanye's sixth album. Two Kanye promos in one—what a great sister-in-law she is.
There's nothing quite like a military overcoat to keep out the chill, and Kendall's ankle length Zimmermann option, with those dramatic wide lapels, could hide a whole world of clever layering insulation within.
And it's not just their ready-to-wear that Kendall clearly loves, but their jewellery too—most recently, their Metal Bead Collar in Antique Silver (£404). It's available to buy soon, if you're keen on it yourself, just make sure you wear it with a V-neck. Because otherwise, what's the point?
