Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Kim Kardashian’s style evolution is nothing short of amazing. From tabloid fodder and reality TV star, Kim Kardashian-West is now a bona fide fashion industry insider. Not only did she make the cover of Vogue this year, she is hobnobbing with the fashion industry’s best and brightest. Just check out her Instagram. Oliver Rousteing, Riccardo Tisci, and Carine Roitfeld are all her buddies.
Whether this style change is her hubby, Kanye West’s doing or not, Kim still pulls off every single ensemble with her own panache. Constantly draped in directional and chic couture, it is no doubt that Kim K. is cementing her place as a modern style icon. Here are my top picks of her 10 best looks:
The combination of that mustard yellow coat and eggplant colored crop top is unexpectedly chic. This look is composed of two pieces which have now become Kim’s signature–the oversized robe coat and hip-hugging pencil skirt. You will do well to invest in these two trendy pieces as well, it’ll give you chic points almost instantly.
Showing off her love for Kanye, she dresses up her Yeezus concert tee with a cropped leather motorcycle jacket and black distressed denim. Heeled sandals finish off this casual look that packs a lot of glam and edge.
Doing her own twist on the blazer and jeans look, Kim sports a pair of matching gray tee and jeans. That leather blazer with brass buttons is a statement making piece that gives the denim and tee a high dose of haute fashion. The white pumps are also a great way to lighten up this look and make it more daytime appropriate.
Matching sets are queen this year. Kim does her own take on the trend with a cowl neck crop top and pencil skirt combination. What makes this look stand out is her smart styling choices, the blush color is totally fashion forward and the high ponytail and embellished minaudiere adds to that effect.
Kim’s super cute Chanel Parfum acrylic purse goes to show that she has fun with fashion. This playful piece makes the rest of her tailored look more powerful and interesting. I also love the softness and slight drape of her blazer.
You can’t really expect a less than stellar airport look from Kim K. She jazzes up her all black winter outfit with a mini snakeskin Hermes bag. The animal print and rich texture stands out even more against her chic all black look.
Kim could teach a master class in donning a pencil skirt. She simply looks stunning in this red knit pencil skirt and dove gray mock turtleneck sweater. This look is proof that it’s all about the silhouette, you can wear two skin tight pieces together without looking trashy. This is a certainly classy look, punctuated by an amazing pair of red ankle strap PVC stiletto heels.
This midnight blue creation is perfection to say the least. From the surprising color choice, the thigh high slit,down to the vintage inspired T-strap heels, Kim totally ruled the red carpet in this frock. The simple yet sophisticated beauty look and accessory styling adds to the Old Hollywood vibe.
Can we please look this good walking through the airport? Kim dresses up a comfy denim button down with a tuxedo blazer and peach hued leather pants. All these 3 pieces work so harmoniously to make her look every bit the superstar.
Kim can officially be called the reigning queen of oversized coats. She makes a play once again for this dramatic outerwear silhouette, and marries it with the winter white trend. Mixing different neutral hues of cream and beige, this look is the very definition of modern elegance.
