Kendall's pared-down outfit includes a long sleeveless coat, turtleneck and jeans. The outerwear skims the waist and hips to disguise any bulges, and the waxed black denim and silver accessories add a little edge to an otherwise work-ready ensemble.
Tip 1: Mix neutrals

An all-black outfit is slimming... and boring. Instead, layer a mix of white, ivory, grey, beige, navy or black. The hues are still neutral and sophisticated, but the contrast accentuates fabric textures for added interest. Topshop sleeveless jacket, $80, thebay.com. J.Crew turtleneck, $126, jcrew.com.
Tip 2: Match your shoes and pants

Wearing pants and shoes in the same colour will make your legs appear longer. The same is true for wearing darker hues on your bottom half, so stick to black or navy if you're hoping to minimize your thighs or calves. Coated five-pocket jeans, $60, zara.com. Ankle boots, $130, aldoshoes.com.
