Kendall Jenner Wore the "Frumpy" Basic Trend Everyone Suddenly Wants

So, Kendall Jenner was in NYC last week. Hardly groundbreaking. But what was semi-groundbreaking was the number of very chic outfits she marched around the city in. We're used to her looking cool and stylish but we're not so used to this minimal, earth-tone wardrobe that she packed for her trip. Every outfit Jenner wore was sophisticated and consisted of many The Row pieces. But we digress—the purpose of this piece is to talk about the "frumpy" basic trend she embraced while out and about in the city. Any guesses?

If you guessed sweater vest, ding ding ding! Although Jenner's cropped, fitted, orange sweater vest is hardly frumpy, they do have the reputation of being so. But like with any trend that comes back around, it's evolved and there are lots of cute versions on the market that Jenner herself would surely wear (since she's clearly a fan). Keep scrolling to shop some of them.
