Kendall Jenner Just Brought Back This "Outdated" Jeans Trend, and We're Obsessed

If ever there was a celebrity to keep an eye on for the next big trend, it's Kendall Jenner. Sure, some of her style choices are a little more "runway" than everyday (her trouser-free outing is a case in point), but if we look back through some of her more accessible moments, it's undeniable that her off duty wardrobe isn't easily matched. Along with the luxe leisurewear, slip on shoesbomber jackets and knee-high boots, you're more likely than not to spot Kenny in a pair of jeans, and for a day out and about in Los Angeles earlier this week, she resurrected a previously overlooked style that deserves our full attention: an ultra-high rise, pair of blue cigarette jeans.

A little bit mom jean, a lot of straight-leg, these super high-waisted jeans cinch the waist at the top and gently hug the leg all the way down, leaving a lot more room around the ankle than the skinny jean, and making them the perfect accompaniment to the ankle boot. Win, win. Like most denim, they come in different washes and finishes, but her choice of indigo blue is the vintage 90s throwback I didn't know I needed until now. Sorry black jeans, I think these are my new style crush.

Although Kendall's choice of a leather moto jacket isn't for everyone, it is proof of just how easily these slim jeans can be dressed up or down, so while we wait out the rest of the cold weather, all you need is a cashmere knit and an ankle boot to wear them for day, and a silky cami and a blazer to wear them again at night. An easy instant outfit, sorted.

So if you're bored of traipsing from shop to shop trying on a whole host of jeans to find "the ones", can I suggest you leave the skinnies and trendy ultra-baggy jeans behind, and focus on a pair of timeless cigarette jeans. They're everything we know love about fitted jeans, and with the flattering waist-minimising, leg-lengthening silhouette that would make even a supermodel envious. I know I'm ready for the change. 

Although the exact brand of jeans Kendall is wearing is still currently under wraps (they could even be Kendall's OWN. denim collaboration with Next), keep scrolling for some of the best Kendall inspired straight-leg blue jeans on the market now. They're exactly the kind of wardrobe staple you'll want to wear again, and again, and again...

The Noughties revival might be trending right now. but nothing can convince us to give up a high-waisted fit like these for low slung jeans.

A very slight flare to create more room around the ankle.
