Wearing a body-con dress before dark isn’t for the faint of heart. The rationale is simple: No one wants to be That Girl who squeezes into a too-tight dress—be it bandaged or corseted—when the occasion isn’t quite right. That said, leave it to Kendall Jenner to take the faux pas and turn it into a street style win. When the supermodel stepped out in Beverly Hills yesterday, she tried on a polka-dot frock by Australian label Bec & Bridge, and infused it with tons of tomboy cool.
The trick to Jenner’s dotty new look started with her feet, namely her weather-worn Adidas X Yeezy sneakers, which grounded the moment with much-needed ease. The cheerful pattern of the dress, too, lent the dress a sense of nonchalant prettiness that felt right for day, and a refreshing change of pace from the usual LBD. Jenner kept her accessories to a minimum so as to let the polka dots take center stage, wearing only a delicate gold locket, her signature safety-pin earring by Anita Ko in one ear, and the requisite supermodel shades.
