The "Boring" $40 Pants I'm Buying on Amazon Because of Kendall Jenner

Since when did "boring" become the new cool? If you've taken a look at any of the latest outfits from the fashion crowd, you'd notice one main theme: a return to clean, pared-back neutral tones like beige, camel, and creme everywhere you look. It seems that non-color is the new statement color, which brings me to today's topic of discussion: the "boring" (yet still somehow trendy) pants Kendall Jenner is making me want to buy.

The model is always one of the first to jump the gun on trendy pieces, and this time around, it's a pair of khaki pants from the heritage workwear brand Dickies that she's set her sights on. Had you asked me six months ago, I would have told you that Jenner's khaki cargo-like pants were boring in an uncool way, but the trend tide hath turned, and now I'm seeing them in a completely new light. Let's consider her expert styling: She kept the rest of her look sleek via a black bodysuit and square-toe ankle boots while riffing further on the workwear motif via a leather shacket (that's shirt jacket, for the uninitiated).

Thanks to KJ's cool styling idea, I'm ready to pull the trigger on the below pair of similar khakis I've found on Amazon for a mere $40. Keep reading to see her look and shop even more cargo-inspired khaki pants.
