Kendall Jenner Is Trying to Make Skirts Over Pants a Thing (+ You Can Too!)

Layering is a sartorial move typically reserved for tops — you throw a moto jacket over a t-shirt to stay cozy and cute, you layer a sweatshirt over a button-down to add flair to your 9-to-5 uniform. But Kendall Jenner is getting creative with the tactic in her latest off-duty outfit featuring doubled-up bottoms.


As People reports, Jenner was snapped on the streets of NYC wearing apron pants, a style of bottoms that features a breezy overlay much like the garment you tie on to whip up confections in the kitchen (get it?). When it comes down to it, it looks like she’s wearing a skirt over pants. But this isn’t just another krazy Kardashian moment: she’s not the first celeb to endorse the offbeat look. Last year, Beyoncê posed in a pair of two-in-ones on Instagram while Emma Watson wow-ed in a dress-over-pants ensemble on the Golden Globes red carpet. Sure, the appearances are few and far between, but Kendall’s chic take just might be what the skirt-over-pants trend needs to take off. Intrigued, fashion rule breakers? Here are four ways to pull off the look right now.

Asymmetrical Skirt + Faux Leather Leggings

Besides being one of the biggest spring trends on their own, asymmetrical skirts are one of the easiest pieces to pull off the skirt-over-pants look with: its high-low (lower? higher again?) hem already sets a more fashion-forward tone to your look, so if you’re looking to dabble, this is the gateway. Slip on a pair of faux leather leggings and slinky heels for a date night-ready look.

Pleated Skirt + Cigarette Pants

The movement from a breezy pleated skirt will add softness to this unexpected pairing. Channel your inner minimalist to round out the look: tailored pants and fresh white sneakers will help the look feel ultra modern as will unexpected proportions, so keep a white button untucked. We can’t imagine a cooler way to meet the gang for fancy cocktails and a night of gallery hopping.

Wrap Skirt + Printed Culottes

Take advantage of the natural slit at the front of a wrap skirt — another big-for-spring silhouette — by layering a printed pair of culottes underneath. Sure it’s not showing off your stems to their full potential, but just imagine the cropped pair peeping out as you strut (in high heels, natch) and try not to swoon. Just make sure the hems line up for this look that we’re calling an alternate Easter brunch outfit option.

Midi Skirt + Palazzo Pants

It’s not an A-line skirt, it’s not a pencil skirt, so what exactly is it? If you said “the perfect skirt to go over pants” you guessed right! Get the appearance of a layered maxi skirt from this relaxed combo. With palazzos or other wide-legged trousers underneath, the look is immediately elevated to a more elegant level than either piece could get to on its own. Wear with a basic cami and a fitted blazer to overhaul your spring office look.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.
