Is This the Chap-ocalypse? Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss Are Committing to Chaps in 2016

We have good news and bad news: The good news is that there’s a new model-approved fashion trend taking over. The bad news? It’s in the form of thigh high black leather chaps, paired with light-wash denim — a look that Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid are all standing behind.

Yesterday, Kendall Jenner gallivanted around Paris before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, wearing none other than a confusing combination of denim shorts, mesh Christian Louboutin booties, and a thigh-high leather piece up her legs. We investigated, and the conclusion is clear: she’s wearing chaps.

But it wouldn’t be a true Paris outing without a matching KenGi moment — which is why Kendall’s look seems to have inspired BFF Gigi Hadid to hop on the bandwagon as well. The model stepped out for her VS rehearsal wearing black over-the-knee boots and denim shorts. In other words, she’s slowly creeping her way into chap territory. Hadid paired the look with a gray hoodie and denim jacket, taking a sportier approach to the trend than her BFF.

Apparently, Karlie Kloss didn’t want to miss out on a VS squad moment — because even though the model isn’t in Paris for the show this year,  she wore the uniform nonetheless. The model sported a black leather pair of chap-inspired boots from Rihanna’s Denim Desserts collection with Manolo Blahnik, paired with — you guessed it — a pair of light-wash jeans. She paired the look with an Adidas tank, pulling off a look similar to Hadid’s.

And if Kloss’s chaps look familiar, that’s because the denim version has been worn by not only Rihanna, who designed them, but Jennifer Lopez as well. Lopez was gifted a pair by Rihanna, and wore them in her “Ain’t Your Mama” video.
