New York City is a lot of things—a fashion capital, a multicultural hub, the birthplace of the cronut—but one thing it’s not is squeaky clean. That’s part of the appeal: It’s fast-paced, and therefore, a little rough around the edges. All that to say, the grimy New York streets make Kylie Jenner’s latest outfit a bold choice: The star was spotted walking around the city today wearing a pair of floor-grazing puddle pants.
Now, given Jenner has a private car service and her own security team, she probably didn’t do tons of walking around the city. But she did dare to wear baggy, floor-length jeans in Manhattan nonetheless, styling them with a cropped button-up shirt, oversized overcoat, and wrap-around sunglasses. (Gas station sunnies are all the rage with stars—haven’t you heard?). To help lift the denim up off the floor, she also accessorized with sleek pointy-toe pumps.
Are her pants a practical choice for running around New York? Perhaps not. But they are right on trend: Big, baggy denim is in this season, thanks to labels such as Balenciaga, Peter Do, and R13, who have been embracing the puddle pant silhouette. If you’re going to rock them this fall too, just make sure you wear them from car to door—just like Jenner. Or, at the very least, have a good laundromat or dry cleaner on standby.
