From her 15-foot long Giambattista Valli train to her Alexandre Vauthier denim look, Kendall Jenner definitely lived up to her supermodel status on the red carpet in Cannes. What's getting less coverage, but is equally worthy of attention, is her insanely good yacht wardrobe off the red carpet, which is our new summer vacation packing guide.
She wore eye-catching looks throughout the week, from standout leopard one-pieces paired with tropical vintage-looking silk button-downs, to what's sure to become an iconic image of Jenner in a high-waisted, ruffled pink bikini wearing one of Jacquemus's cutting-edge Traditional Provençal straw hats. The looks were on trend, versatile, and attainable, making them the ideal addition to your suitcase for your next vacation—particulary those involving a lot of lounging by the water, relaxing in the sun, and a chic dinner out here and there.
Though we may not be on a private yacht in the South of France Jet-Skiing and scuba diving, we can still copy her looks for whatever trips we take this summer. Keep scrolling for your Kendall Jenner getaway capsule.
Look #1: Swimsuit +Hat
We never knew how badly we need a ruffled, buttoned, pink high-waisted bikini in our lives until Kendall Jenner showed us how it's done.
THE PINK BIKINI
This feminine and playful bikini was made for Instagramming. Just add a flamingo pool float and you'll be all set.
If you favor a more minimal aesthetic but want the same look, this blogger-beloved version by Ephemera provides that sans bells and whistles (almost literally—in this case, sans ruffles and buttons).
Another version by swimwear queen Lisa Marie Fernandez, this retro bikini feels very Bond girl.
THE STRAW SUN HAT
Jenner's version might be sold out, but the bonus to this sweet raffia hat is that it's made to be packable.
This hat provides a similar aesthetic to Jenner's without the stiff structure.
The Gold Pendant Necklace
Gold pendant necklaces are the It piece of jewelry for French fashion girls, and Jenner has clearly taken on their aesthetic while in the south of France, as she's been spotted with a gold medallion necklace worn with all of her ensembles—swimwear included. This piece is made by French It girl Jeanne Damas's jewelry designing sister, Louise Damas, so it has the Parisian stamp of approval. You can personalize it to display numbers or initials.
Wear your astrological sign around your neck with pride.
Minimal girls can skip the engravings and stones and opt for this sleek, flat gold disc.
Look #2: Swimsuit + Kimono
For being a designer swimsuit loved by celebrities (Chrissy Teigen is also a fan), this piece rings in at a surprisingly affordable $88. The high cut and wild leopard print are balanced by the coverage of the one-piece, and she styled in a fresh way with a cool silk shirt in bright, tropical colors with retro cat-eye sunnies.
The Leopard One Piece
This one-piece works overtime as a bodysuit for non-pool outfits. Go straight from the water to dinner by throwing on a pair of denim cut-offs and gold hoops.
Made by the same designer as the more modern and streamlined version Jenner is wearing, this ruched version has a retro feel inspired by '50s glamor.
We love the front-zip detail on this version that lends it a sporty vibe.
The Tropical Cover-Up
We love the tie front and vibrant print, which would look so great paired with crisp white pants (also part of the capsule wardrobe!).
This fun layering piece is a summer dream. Wear it over your leopard (or any color) one-piece or to complement a bikini, and when you return from vacation, it can be your weekend loungewear kimono—imagine wearing this over a white bodysuit while making Sunday brunch and coffee or with a cute bralette and cotton brief set to pad around the house. During the week, it makes a chic addition to a fitted top + raw hem jeans + heels ensemble.
It's official—Zara has the kimono game covered this season.
The Black Cat-Eye Sunnies
These retro sunnies are eye-catching, to say the least.
We like the subtle, rounded edges on this pair.
Minimal price, maximum impact.
Look #3: Classic Blouse + Statement Pants
On Jenner: Solace London Bella Top Navy Stripe ($310) and Ray Trousers Cream ($380); Le Specs The Last Lolita Cat-Eye Sunglasses ($75); Prada Patent Leather Ankle-Strap Sandals ($790) ($469); Saint Laurent Medium Soft Sac de Jour Leather Tote ($3250).
A crisp, clean, blue-and-white striped shirt is a classic vacation staple. Paired with white split-seam pants and candy-pink printed Prada heels, this look is at once preppy, playful, and fashion-forward. Plus, the separates involved can be mixed and matched with all the other pieces in the capsule vacation wardrobe.
THE STRIPED TOP
It could be worn endless ways, but this crop top was made for high-waisted white bottoms.
The best part about this boxy striped staple is the stripe mix and buttons down the back.
Stripes and statement sleeves—what's not to love?
The White Split-Seam Pant
High-waisted side-slit trousers look flattering on everyone and showcase your favorite shoes.
These chic, trending trousers have a chill vibe with wide legs and a nautical look, thanks to a gold pull ring.
Breezy trousers look effortless worn over your leopard one-piece.
The Statement Heel
To say we love these shoes would be the understatement of the year.
These must-have gingham heels are under $50—get 'em while they're hot!
We love the look of these tapestry-inspired block-heel sandals.
The White Crossbody
This timeless piece will serve you well on summer vacations for years to come.
A cute, structured bag that will go with any outfit.
Gorgeous and glam with gold hardware detailing.
Look #4: Romper + Sneakers
Jenner showed us how to wear sneakers on vacation with a pale pink ruffled romper and clear frames.
THE FLORAL ROMPER
The kind of piece you live in all day.
So cute with white sneakers and a denim jacket.
This pale blue version is so sweet.
THE WHITE SNEAKER
These shoes were a hot ticket at Cannes and work well to balance frilly feminine pieces like a floral romper.
You can never have too many pairs of white sneakers, right?
We couldn't resist these cool neon-yellow heel sneakers, which would look good paired with one of the tropical pieces in your capsule wardrobe.
The Clear Frames
These are so good they sold out, but we're still holding out hope for a restock.
At $12, this near-identical pair is a done deal.
The shape is a perfect match, the lens tint gives these a cool throwback effect.
