Kim K’s Style Takeover
You love her, you hate her, maybe you love to hate her. But no matter what your personal opinion is on the celebrity enigma that is Kim Kardashian-West, one thing is undeniable: the girl has style.
Whether it is in the form of a chainmail skirt (worn with a black body suit at this year’s GQ Awards), or the wedding dress that owned the media, West is making waves in the fashion world for her high-end ensembles and—thanks to fashionably conscious husband Kanye West—has turned into the world’s newest (and unlikeliest) fashion icon. Anchored by West, Kardashian has been seen in a bandage dress, customized Birkin bags, oversized Celine coats, and a close, personal relationship with famed designer Riccardo Tisci, of the mega-fashion House of Givenchy.
Observing Mrs. West’s style in action, some patterns may emerge. Basic pieces in classic shades (like camel coats, well-made blue jeans, and white button-downs) are the foundation of almost every Kim K getup. Throw on a chic pair of sunglasses (Kim is always hiding her emotions under those enormous shades), and maybe a leather jacket—or a pair of nude heels—to finish off this West-family-approved fashion masterpiece.
Kim is also unafraid of experimenting with menswear-inspired looks (her and Kanye often look like they are wearing the same thing)—rocking tuxedo jackets and pantsuits just as she would her more revealing getups.
So ladies, come take a tip or two from the (style)Book of Yeezus and family, and bring some divinity to your own style.
