Kendall + Kylie Holiday 2016 Collection Has All Tastes Covered!

Kendall and Kylie Jenner have a holiday 2016 collection with 13 different items in total that are supposed to be a blend of casual and luxe. The price range is higher than most, and while many are happy to delve in and take out their wallets, with the prices ranging from $78 up to several hundreds of dollars per item, I do not understand the need to be pressed about it.

The point of the holiday collection is to cash in on trends with a wide range of appeal, which makes good business sense. However fiscally, there is a lot of ‘no’ here. For example, the velvet midi skirt for $168 meets several needs amazingly. The skirt is velvet, which is trendy right now, it has a slit on the side, which is always a welcome plus and the midi length is flattering on most body types.

The velvet midi skirt can boost nearly any outfit and offers fashion and utility regardless of the name on the tags but in the same vein how is a Norman dog bag charm $95? The Bambi dog bag charm has the same $95 price tag. The Sophie dog bag charm is a whopping $150.

These may be interesting little accessories with an interesting tactile feel and high-end materials, but there is no utility to support that price. However, in the ‘to each their own’ non-committal view of the collection, some people may want to spend a large amount on a small, essentially useless item. I am not one of those people, so this item is clearly not designed for me.

Actual clothing is something I can see springing the dough for, and a pair of shoes can easily run over a hundred dollars so I can 100% agree on the Tenley sneaker and the Tyler sneaker being reasonably priced and aesthetically pleasing at $130 for some very pretty sneakers to be seen in.

For the Kendall + Kylie holiday 2016 collection to be worthy of the pretty expensive range prices they set, I need more than their names to convince me I should buy in, and a lot of people feel the same way. So in the interest of being fair, taking their trend riding names out of the consideration, the items that offer utility are well designed and the handbags especially are visually interesting with a well structure appearance and trendy style.

I am also a fan of the Jacquard bomber jacket, which is $248, the high neck bodysuit at $119, as it has a beautiful sheen to it, the visually interesting draped panel long-sleeve tee at $78 and the Ginza clutch at $250.

Though not original in aesthetic, they are still different enough to stand out and be great pieces for any wardrobe, besides originality not what brought these girls to fame anyway. Attending to the trends and staying out front one way or another is.

That can be done with plenty of the items in the Kendall + Kylie holiday 2016 collection, which is available on the Jenners’ official site, but also at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Shopbop!
