Reigning “it-girl” supermodels Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner both have an established aesthetic when it comes to their off duty style; they flawlessly mix comfort casual with statement pieces and somehow get it right every single time. Whether on or off the catwalk, these girl’s outfits are always effortlessly chic and well put together. With a combined Instagram following of 78.3 million, Gigi and Kendall must be doing something right. So, what’s their secret? Aside from being blessed with super long legs and model-lean bodies, Gigi and Kendall know what looks good on them; they stick to figure flattering silhouettes and are not afraid to experiment and push the boundaries of fashion by incorporating standout pieces or mixing unlikely combinations – trainers with dresses; smart jackets with gym wear; luxe, sheer and leather with vintage band-tees.
But how do these girls consistently walk out the door in spot on style? And how can you make it work for yourself? We think we have the secret fashion formula to steal their signature looks for any occasion… read on to find out.
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner – Sports Street Style
If there is one look that both Gigi and Kendall perfect every time, it’s athlesiure. Thanks to these two style icons, gym leggings no longer need to be restricted to sweaty gym classes or runs; styled right you can wear them as part of a super cool everyday outfit.
The key to this effortless off-duty look is to mix and match your sports pieces with more structured formal items. Follow Gigi’s rule by pairing grey sheer panelled leggings with a pale grey long coat and structured cross body bag to balance out the dressed down sneakers and thrown on tee. Or, like Gigi’s all sports blush combo, stick to one monochromatic tone which will instantly make any outfit look sleek and put together despite it ultimately being a co-ord of sweatpants and a cropped hoodie. By pairing it with an oversized black Givenchy bag, Gigi picks out the black piping on her jacket and sweats to make it look like this outfit was designed as a whole set.
For serious sports-luxe, channel Gigi’s black and bright orange combo showing that you can make a complete sports outfit work as everyday wear if you add a pop of structured colour in a more luxurious fabric like this quilted orange bomber. The clean lines and stark colour contrast make Gigi stand out for all the right reasons. To complete any sports look like Gigi, simply opt for a pair of statement sunnies – be that a mirrored lens or matte black lens – and keep your hair and make up minimal with a sleek bun.
Kendall’s take on athlesiure is just as chic but offers a slightly different way of styling. Here she shows us how to work a full sweatpant-jumper combo during the day by pairing it with matching nude pointed pump heels and an oversized patent black bag. Another one of Kendall’s go-to casual accessories is her collection of pom-pom key-rings which she uses to inject some colour to a classic black bag. We suggest opting for an unlikely clashing colour and have some fun with mixing these shades – just like Kendall does with her nude and red tracksuit and bright yellow pom-pom. For cool casual in the warmer weather, try wearing a sleeveless coat over your sports pieces in a matching shade like Kendall’s white crop top, coat, and legging co-ord. Again, by keeping the colours blocked and neutral your outfit will always look flawlessly put together.
The easiest way to style gym wear for everyday is to simply throw on a leather jacket; Kendall swears by hers as a go-to. You could style it like her with an added fur trim or keep it simple with just a little black bag for the day’s essentials.
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner – Casual Street Style
For the perfect casual day-to-night looks that can work all year round, look no further than Gigi and Kendall’s jean and tee combos, leather and denim mixes, and layered pops of colour.
Here Gigi shows us how to pull off a vintage band tee by cropping her Rolling Stones top to show off her model-toned midriff. Follow in her footsteps and pair any cropped t-shirt with a pair of high waisted trousers to keep the silhouette sleek and A-line, and give you that little bit of extra coverage – plus the high waisted jeans are one of the most figure flattering options. For an added punk-rocker twist opt for a pair with sheer or leather panelling to incorporate different textures and make your outfit that little bit more daring, taking it from day wear to night wear.
Another way to make a t-shirt sophisticated and chic is to pair it with some wide-legged trousers and belt it around the waist like Gigi shows here. The long trousers will accentuate your legs and make them look endless, while the belt will pull in the waist so that you can avoid losing your figure under the looser clothing. Add a pair of platform flats like Gigi’s Stella McCartney shoes so that you don’t have to compromise comfort. For a striking day-to-night look, channel Gigi’s red and cream outfit by picking a bold colour for the majority of your pieces and pairing it with a complimentary neutral.
This look works because of its simplicity so we suggest sticking to block colouring and two statement pieces in your chosen colour. For example you could pair cobalt blue trousers with a matching bomber jacket as long as you keep the top and shoes neutral in cool white or grey tones. Again Gigi proves her fashion knowledge and shows us how to style everyday blue jeans with a surprising twist: wear a sheer top and matching coloured coat to make a casual jean look more luxe and unexpected.
Kendall is queen of casual chic: when she’s not wearing her styled up gym wear she lives in jeans, jumpers, and cool jackets. We love this off-duty vibe because anyone can wear it well. Try like Jenner and pair ripped light wash jeans with a statement satin bomber and plain white tee, and keep the shoes and accessories matching in black. A big fan of the choker necklace, Kendall is often seen wearing variations of the choker as it adds an instant cool to any outfit. We also love the colour of the bomber she’s wearing here, nailing two trends in one: the bomber and the metallic. For an even more dressed-down outfit that looks effortlessly thrown on, combine leather trousers with an oversized denim jacket – the more distressed the better – and layer a hooded jumper underneath to keep you warm.
To avoid simply looking underdressed, pair with a statement bag and it will transform the outfit and tie the look together. A textured bag will always add an element of luxury just like Kendall’s black feather bag in this look. Kendall also shows us how to make a chunky turtle neck jumper look sleek paired with an all black outfit. With this sort of jumper you want to keep all other pieces form fitting to avoid being overwhelmed by heavy fabrics so follow Kendall’s lead and opt for black skinny jeans, a oversized black bag and mid length coat – this is the perfect everyday look for those colder months. For an alternative to jeans why not try some straight leg linen or lightweight trousers and pair with an equally lightweight t-shirt that’s tied at the side to slightly cinch in the waist. Opt for flats with this laid back look and accessorise with a small cross body bag in either matching neutrals or choose a summer colour like burnt orange or a pretty pastel shade.
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner – Classic Street Style
When Gigi and Kendall aren’t dressed in their signature off-duty causal outfits they are instead dressed like they’ve walked straight off of the catwalk. Sleek and classy in monochrome tones, clean silhouettes, and luxury statement pieces, these girls seem to nail every single look they step out in. Here’s how they do it.
Gigi shows us how to pull off an all white jumper dress by keeping the accessories minimal and in coordinating shades. The belt, the bag, and the sunglasses all share the same orangey hue, which contrasts perfectly with the vibrant white of the dress, making this a fashion hit for summer. The high neck of the dress combined with the midi length will instantly elongate your body; the thin belt is perfect to tie round your waist to again avoid overwhelming your body with unstructured fabric. Simple sandals complete this summer time look. Another one of Gigi’s best styles is how she makes ripped jeans look sophisticated and extremely classy. We suggest opting for a pair of ripped or distressed blue boyfriends jeans and pairing them with a more formal top in neutral shades like Gigi does – white always looks sleek. The key to perfecting this look – taking it from casual to formal – is in the shoes: wear high heeled pumps. The pointed toe also adds a more sophisticated tone. To complete this look, go for a statement coat that either hits at the knee or below. We cannot emphasise enough the power of a good coat; it can take any outfit from dressed-down to dressed-up.
Once you’ve got this template you can start to experiment with different colour combinations and have some fun with the bag by choosing a funky clutch or tote. For a killer chic look, channel Gigi’s all taupe outfit and show off your curves. Choose a figure hugging midi dress and pair with a same tone long coat. Throw on some metallic shades and you will ooze confidence and fashion know-how as you strut down the street.
Take inspiration from Kendall and her signature monochrome suit style. Who says a shirt and trousers can’t look super feminine? If you’re worried about trying this look, do like Kendall and start off with softer tones like grey, beige, or pale blue. There’s something about a monochrome outfit that looks so put-together and expensive; the key to pulling off this look it to mix different fabrics like Kendall does with her blush satin shirt and matching blush cotton skirt. The difference in fabric will add more dimension to the outfit and help to distinguish between pieces of the same colour.
As Kendall demonstrates, you can wear either heels or flats with this suit option depending on the occasion, and both look flawless. Once again the longer coat will finish off any look and is practical for the colder weather; for the warmer months simply drape your coat over an oversized bag so that you still have the option to wear it or opt for a lightweight coat in a contrasting summer colour like Kendall’s burnt orange silk one, which she paired with a beige jumper-pant suit. With a look like this you can either finish it off with tousled hair worn down for a more laid back vibe, or you can go all out with a sleek low bun.
One thing is certain: Gigi and Kendall know style. While it seems that dressing on trend comes completely naturally for these two, in reality it’s not always as easy as it looks. So, for a fool-proof way to ensure sleek and stylish outfits that just scream effortless coolness try these simple fashion go-tos inspired by Hadid and Jenner…
Tip 1 – Monochromatic outfits; pale greys, soft blushes, blacks and whites, reds, all black, baby blues, creams and taupes – do not underestimate the style power of one-colour outfits.
Tip 2 – Add an unexpected pop of colour – mixing casual ripped jeans and tees with a brightly coloured designer bag.
Tip 3 – Wear catwalk worthy pieces with a messy high-top bun and sneakers or flats
Tip 4 – The Jacket: leather or bomber
Tip 5 – The coat: long and structured
Tip 6 – Play with metallics; in the shoe, in the bag, in the jacket – just don’t over-do it.
Tip 7 – Mix different fabrics and don’t be afraid to clash textures! (If you’re nervous about trying this, stick to same coloured fabrics to start with like Gigi’s red leather outfit, or her black sheer leggings and crop rock band t-shirt look as seen above)
