Style Crush, Style Staples 'IT' Models Edition: Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is more than a reality star, she is a supermodel or an 'IT' model, if you will. With Kendall's immense popularity on social media (hello 26 plus million Instagram followers!), an extremely popular reality show called, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and, Olympic genes she has catapulted herself to the top of the modelling world. Miss Jenner has posed for the pages of GQ, Interview, Allure and, Teen Vogue to name a few and has strutted down the runways of Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Chanel and Givenchy among many others.

Despite her famous family, Kendall is a star all on her own. If it weren't for her strong work ethic, good attitude and knack for posing then she would not have the staying power that she has. At this rate, there is no doubt that Miss Jenner will around for a very long time.

When it comes to her style, Kendall likes to borrow from the boys whether it be a blazer like the one that she wore to the Billboard Music Awards or her love of oxfords. Her style staples are basic with a little bit of an edge for example, instead of wearing simple jean shorts she will wear jean shorts with rips and tears. To see more of Kendall's enviable style staples - jean shorts,  jumpsuits, halter tops, hats and crop tops - scroll down below!

The casual summer style staple is a go-to for Kendall and with her long legs she knows how to wear them, whether it be with a laid-back white T-shirt or a black coat, furry bag or strappy heels. Kendall's fondness for jeans shorts exemplify her love for simple fashion pieces especially ones that have a bit of a tomboy flare.

2) Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are back with a vengeance so naturally Kendall would wear one too. A jumpsuit is one of Kendall's go-to pieces when she hits the red carpet and has been spotted in black, white, blue and orange coloured styles.

3) Halter Tops

A favourite style of the 2000's Kendall knows how to wear a halter top and with shoulders like hers they are a natural fit. Halter tops are an unique alternative to spaghetti straps, strapless and one-shoulder styles and have an innate summer feeling to them. As Kendall shows, halter tops can be worn with anything from a pencil skirt to cropped pants. I recommend wearing them with a maxi skirt for an earth mama vibe.

4) Hats

Aside from aviator sunglasses, Kendall's signature accessory is a good ole' hat. As a native of sunny California, there is no surprise there. Her favourite hat is a classic wide-brimmed grey fedora which she has been spotted wearing all over place. Fedoras are great pieces to have in your wardrobe because they take a simple outfit and make it look cool. Baseball hats are another favourite of Kendall's and add to her tomboy style.

5) Crop Tops

The 5ft. 10" model has an affinity for crop tops and who could blame her? With her athletic genes and slender frame, the girl has got abs and you know what they say, "if you've got it, flaunt it"! Crop tops were a huge trend last summer and if Miss Jenner has her way they are not going anywhere. In the first look, Kendall shows how to wear crop tops in a sophisticated way with her nude coat and powder blue pants. The hint of belly keeps her outfit young and fresh. In the second look, the 'it' model wears her black crop top in a more athletic way with her top knot and aviator sunglasses.
