Look for Less: Kendall Jenner's Back to Black
Kendall's living the life: fame (she just landed her own solo cover of American Vogue), fortune (with an estimated net worth of $12 million), followers (52.3 million on the 'gram), and a family like no other. Along with bestie and fellow reality-star-daughter-turned-model Gigi Hadid, she's been slaying the street style scene in simple, elevated basics. And by elevated, we mean elevated price tags. Since Kendall clearly never needed to shop on a college-girl budget, we rounded up our favorite picks, each under $100, to recreate her cool-kid minimalist look.
This is the perfect look for all those who cringe at the slew of floral/ruffle/chiffon outfits that spring usually brings about. A refreshing black and white palette will make you stand out in a sea of muted pastels. Sleek and comfy is the goal with this look. The coat can be ditched when it warms up during the day and the sneakers are perfect for a picnic lunch on the quad.
The clean lines of this sharply cut coat make it ideal for layering over more form-fitting pieces. The popped collar kicks it up a notch, while the belt cinches in for a smooth silhouette over skinny jeans, fancy dresses or mini skirts.

Versatility is the name of the game for a college wardrobe. You want to be able to get the most out of every single piece you own. This little black number works just as well with sneakers and a jacket for a Chicago spring day (also known as fall) as it does with lace up pumps for a night out on the town. Sounds like a win-win for our space starved closets!
