Kim Kardashian West’s style has evolved over the years—we know that. But the beauty of her wardrobe is that she often finds outfit formulas she loves and sticks to. This means that (in theory, anyway) they’re easy to re-create, although they’re often much more daring than we would usually go for ourselves. You have to admire KKW for being adventurous when it comes to her fashion choices, and while we might not be ready to wear her looks yet, we’re bookmarking them for later. Keep scrolling to see the Kim Kardashian West outfit formulas the style setter can’t get enough of.
1. Shorts and Over-The-Knee Boots
Style Notes: No stranger to an over-the-knee boot, Kim has lately taken to teaming hers with city shorts or lycra body suits that end mid-thigh. It’s characteristically bold, but a worthy alternative to boots and mini skirts or dresses.
2. Oversized Jackets and Dresses
Style Notes: Not since J.Lo circa the early ’00s have we seen someone being able to pull off this look. The trick to being polished while wearing a tracksuit is making sure it’s the same colour and is tucked into pointed boots.
5. The New Take on Power Dressing
Style Notes: Here’s where Kim K really shines—when wearing the most revealing but still trend-setting outfits. And how better to showcase this skill than via her love of leggings? From the sheer, knickers-baring pair to a blue glittery iteration, these a world away from the leggings we wear to the gym.
7. Bum Bags With Everything
Style Notes: Ah, the bodysuit. True, it was huge in the ’90s, but no one wears one better than Kim does. She always goes for super-simple versions, but there’s always a little sass in them. And she’ll often wear them with cutoffs.
