When we use the words ugly and polarizing, we are simply referring to the controversial opinion that often accompanies the trend or item we are speaking of. If you are a fan of any of the selected phenomena ahead, you are in luck because Kendall Jenner has officially made them not just a trend but a mainstream and accessible trend, in the best ways possible. With just one look at the stylings ahead, you will at first be reminded of how shocking it initially was to see this A-list celeb in each, followed by the realization that thanks to Jenner's support, these odd trends spread like wildfire.
To give you a few hints as to what kinds of "ugly" and "polarizing" trends we are speaking of, think dad hats, tracksuits, and fake glasses—each of which is now basically a staple in every fashion girl's wardrobe. We told you—these aren't your run-of-the-mill items, but fear not. Style icon Kendall Jenner is here to inform us of the most fashionable ways to pull off each so you aren't left in the dark. Are you ready?
Keep scrolling to see the controversial trends Kendall Jenner quickly made mainstream.
What was once reserved for a sweaty post-gym workout look or, to put it frankly, something your dad would wear, is now officially an It-girl trend thanks to Kendall. We recommend styling the "dat hat" trend with elevated and polished items like Kendall did here.
When Kendall stepped out in this Chloé tracksuit, our eyes widened and our hearts stopped. Since this moment, celebrities across the board have been sporting this trend, further convincing us of the niche head-to-toe commitment.
DOUBLE ANIMAL PRINT
Deciding to wear one animal-print piece is enough of a task in itself, but wearing double animal print is a trend we definitely would have never tried on our own. Kendall showed us just the way to do it by mixing textures but staying within the same print family.
Kendall Jenner is definitely not afraid to push boundaries. When she stepped out in this graphic tee that was ripped wide open, she took confidence to a whole new level. In this case, what some might see as a mistake, Kendall turned into a trend that fashion girls instantly adopted.
BRA OVER SHIRT
When it comes to bras, Kendall has made it clear that she likes us to see them—and we mean really see them. In this look, she opted to wear her bralette outside her shirt, and ever since that day, retailers like Zara and Forever 21 have churned out two-in-one versions of this once-weird but now Kendall-approved trend.
Previously, you might have seen a pair of clear or Lucite boots and thought of a not-so-kind adjective—until Kendall Jenner tried it. Spotted in L.A. wearing these clear boots paired with fishnet socks and a statement jacket, she had us instantly convinced that these boots were made for our liking too.
Wearing faux glasses totally used to be a faux pas. Admitting they did not, in fact, have a prescription was a humiliation no human wanted to face. Thanks to Kendall, that barrier is now broken as she, among with a few other stylish women we know, flaunts them on the regular while holding her head high.
