It's fair to say that in the past few years, Kendall Jenner (along with BFF Gigi Hadid) has ushered in a new era of the model-off-duty uniform—one which relies heavily on black athletic leggings as pants, workout or no workout. But since February, the 21-year-old has been giving her stretchy Lululemons and Alo Yoga tights a break in favor of a more varied array of high-waisted trousers, distressed denim, pinstripe flares, and tailored culottes—all of which we're very much feeling for spring.
Not that Jenner has given up leggings entirely—she's certainly been spotted in the leather variety, and we're sure now that she's back from making the fashion month rounds, her usual sporty L.A. look will be back in rotation soon—but it's been fun to see the model branch out from her comfort zone, especially since the styling has been consistently on point.
Below, get inspired by nine of Jenner's best recent outfits—all of which feature pants that are decidedly not meant for the gym—and shop our favorite picks.
