And we want it all…
The girl, the model, the life and most importantly, that style. We want it all! We don't like to play favourites with models here in UFashion.ie, mostly because we just can't seem to agree on one. But with Kendall Jenner, we can all agree that she is fashion's latest it model (buh bye Cara!) and we are loving it. Some speculate that the only way she got to where she is now is through the status that her sister's have created for her and sister Kylie. But if that is the case, who cares? We all use our contacts to get somewhere in life and Kendall just so happened to use hers to walk the Chanel runway. And even if that status did spring her fashion career forward, there's no denying Kendall is one hell of a model. And has got serious style. Since her and Kylie eased beautifully from their pre-pubescent age to getting comfortable with their personal taste, we've been watching their every move in the style stakes, particularly Kendall. Unlike us UFashion.ie ladies who can safely admit we've made some serious mistakes in the past (velour leopard print dresses, heinous corduroy skirts and jelly shoes to name a few), Kendall has rarely put a foot wrong in the style stakes. She has quickly become one of fashion's biggest inspirations. From events styling to off-duty model style, there has been no shortage of copy-cat looks on the high street intending to mimic Queen K's flawless taste. And we intend to do just the same thing! So while we may leave the perfectly-filtered Instagram selfies to the Jenner girls, we will take inspiration from a handful of Kendall's best looks to date.
If it's good enough for Khloe and Kylie, it's good enough for us! The check shirt isn't just associated with farmers and lumberjacks anymore. These days, the check shirt is one of our fashion staples here in UFashion.ie and also for bloggers, stylists and fashion people alike. It is one of the best pieces you can possibly have in your wardrobe as it rarely goes out of style. Yes, we may not see them on the catwalk every season but a check shirt is like a Coco Chanel suit; timeless (well for those who can afford a Chanel suit). Feeling a bit lazy on a Saturday afternoon? Throw on a check shirt! Too tired to think of something uber-stylish on a Monday morning? Tuck a check shirt into a pencil skirt and roll up the sleeves! Had a few-too-many Wednesday night cocktails after a hard day and are enduring the repercussions now? A check shirt should do the trick (and a strong coffee and a few painkillers too)! But with the many years of strong association, sometimes you may get that worrying feeling that you look more farm-like than budding-stylista. Fret not though, UFashion.ie is here to attest that this versatile and super-comfortable shirt can look as stylish as throwing on your fanciest dress-a little practice is all it takes really. It may not be office-appropriate for all you ladies out there but with the right skirt or fitted pants, you'll be able to throw one of these bad boys on and have the most comfy day in work. Take a look below for three of our favourite ways to style this button-down (while keeping in mind they're are at least a thousand other ways to style it!).
We all like a bit of leather in our lives, but no one does it better than Kendall
