Kendall Jenner Brings Body-Hugging Shapewear to the Street

Is Kendall Jenner wearing cycling shorts? Possibly. Is she sporting a tube top? Maybe. Is the model in something very stretchy and body-con? Why, yes, of course! This past weekend, during the hustle and bustle of New York Fashion Week, the model stepped out of her Manhattan hotel wearing a very form-fitting look that appeared to be none other than a unitard by Atoir. The cinched-in, stretchy black outfit felt straight out of a Jane Fonda workout video from the early ’80s. And while the ensemble could have veered overly retro, Jenner’s pared-back accessories—including her Alexander Wang heels with a single across-the-toe-bed strap, and shiny leather shoulder bag—gave the ensemble a slick, late-’90s attitude.

Jenner taking a full spandex moment to the street isn’t necessarily a radical idea. In fact, the model may have been influenced by her sister Kim Kardashian West, who has recently launched her own shapewear label Skims and promoting it non-stop on her Instagram. Plus, West has been flaunting elastic garments, such as cycling shorts—typically meant for wearing underneath clothes or during athletic activity—on paparazzi-flanked sidewalks for several years now. The best part about these flexible garments? Jenner (or Kardashian West) can easily throw on another chic outfit over these ductile wardrobe staples.
