How A Mid-Sized, 30s Feel About Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers Trend

Hola Sugarcups,

We’re in 2024 but our Tiktok and Instagram is reliving the Y2K fashion and none other than the iconic Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers took my attention. The fashion-forward Style Influencer with an insane ‘gram followings, has vouched for this sartorial style. The internet is all about Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers – these calf-length trousers graced the fashion space in the ’50s and ’60s. Today, I’ll talk about this Y2K trend whether this is a comeback or it is just Kendall Jenner.

While these were forever there in the trousers for Summer and in-between seasons, Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers spiraled a new wave of calling these Capri pants a fashion trend to live in this Summer. From pop-stars J-Lo, Britney Spears and Rihanna, to the OG legacy Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, these trousers where a hit and miss until now. Me being an MTV generation, I fairly remember seeing, now called Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers, absolutely everywhere – fast-fashion, high-end fashion ramps, and as a popular street style. Let’s deep dive a bit to uncover this resurgence.

The Kendall Effect

Kendall’s influence on fashion trends is undeniable. Apparently she pioneered the “no trousers” look early in 2022 to flaunting an array of teeny-tiny thongkinis, she consistently sets the style agenda. Now, she’s turning her attention to pedal pushers, and the fashion world is buzzing with Kendal Jenner’s Pedal Pushers.

The Controversial Comeback

The reappearance of pedal pushers, also known as capri pants, is controversial. While the fashion influencers are soaking in the wide-leg trousers era, there are a few style advocates who proves Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers are one-versatile addition to anybody’s Summer capsule. These cropped trousers, hitting just below the knee, evoke a sense of nostalgia for the Y2K and Gen Z. But are they a chic revival or a fashion faux pas? Time to break it down.

Kendall’s Take

In a recent Instagram photoshoot, Kendall donned a coordinated set from Alo Yoga. Her ensemble featured a sports bra paired with high-waist cropped leggings – the very essence of athleisure. The look was completed with black ballet flats, oversized tote bag, and rectangular sunglasses. Kendall’s off-duty balletcore vibes were on full display, and she effortlessly blended Noughties nostalgia with modern-day “quiet luxury.”

Gigi’s Denim Spin

Fella supermodel Gigi Hadid also dipped her toes into the pedal pusher trend last summer. Opting for minimal styling, Gigi rocked a denim iteration during an evening out in NYC. Her take was sleek, proving that pedal pushers can transition from casual to chic in an effortless way.

The Verdict

Well, the fashion jury remains divided. Some hail Kendall Jenner’s Pedal Pushers choice as a bold move, while others roll their eyes. But one thing is clear: pedal pushers aka capri pants are back on the radar. Whether you embrace them as a ballet babe or dismiss them as a nostalgic no, their return is imminent, ladies! Being a mid-sized, 5.4′ tall, I don’t honestly fancy this Y2K trend comeback, but there’s no harm trying it before judging, no?

In the cyclical world of fashion, trends come and go. Kendall Jenner’s pedal pushers may just be the next big thing. So, will you join the revival or sit this one out? The choice is yours – and your Instagram followers await your choice.

Until next time,
