Technically, she’s not a Kardashian, but she might as well be by association. Given how popular she has become since she started modeling professionally, I say Kendall Jenner now deserves a stage of her own. You know, one that doesn’t involve big sister Kim and the rest of the siblings.

Truth be told,  I’m beginning to like Kendall’s style. Her looks are always simple, easy, and effortless. You can tell that she favors comfort more than anything else by the way she dresses.

Most often than not, Kendall likes to wear tight jeans with boots or loafers, but over the weekend, the leggy brunette skipped her usual and opted for a flowy floor-length frock instead. The dress featured cap sleeves, a side knot detail, as well as a thigh-high slit on one side. She complemented the number with a studded shoulder bag, some Ray-Ban sunnies, and a pair of black gladiator sandals with wrap-around straps at the ankles.

With her mile-long gams and sleek tresses, you could say Kendall painted quite a picture last Saturday.

Doesn’t she look amazing?

I think she looks great. I especially like how she styled the dress with sandals that are more masculine than feminine. Pairing the frock with, say, thong sandals would have looked too predictable and boring. Would you agree?

Kendall’s sandals are from Balenciaga. Here’s a closer look at the pair in tri-tone mixed-media combination. These shoes feature leather trimmings all around, as well as textured suede uppers. They’re very intriguing to look at. No doubt, they’re edgy and masculine, as they are feminine.

Do you like what you see?

Sorry, they’re sold out everywhere. But you need not spend for expensive designer sandals to look like Kendall here. Just grab a draped maxi dress and finish it with slightly masculine sandals. Don’t forget to cap off the mix with dark sunnies and a studded purse. You can try these styles from Sol Sana and Sigerson Morrison:
