If you've been following Kim Kardashian's style post Kanye, you know that she's been incorporating a lot, and we mean a lot, of leather into her wardrobe. For her latest look, while heading out of a restaurant in Miami, Kim wore yet another black leather miniskirt to show off her gams. We love that up top she kept it simple in a white scoop tee with a pocket, then added some edge via her chunky silver chain-link Céline necklace, black flat-top sunglasses, and black peep-toe booties. Kim's latest look is easy to re-create, and you likely already have most of the pieces in your closet. If not, shop similar items below.
Khloe Kardashian took off from LAX in a sleek travel ensemble, including a black off-shoulder top, olive cargo pants, black lace-up booties, a black Céline luggage tote, and oversize round sunglasses. Black and olive are a great color match, and green cargos are a Fall staple, so whether or not you're jet setting this season, mimic Khloe's look by pairing a black top or sweater with olive cargos, like this similar pair by Michael Michael Kors ($110). Don't forget to complete your look with black lace-up booties, a black structured bag, and round sunglasses.
Out with the old, in with the new: the sharp and bright separates that defined last season at Céline have been replaced with slouchier, softer shapes in crisp monochrome hues. Black, white, and navy dominated; on silky tops, wide-leg trousers, cropped leather tees, boxy blazer vests, and mesh-paneled dresses, they looked striking and allowed for Phoebe Philo's new twisted fabric motifs to really shine. And though there were also some sweet charmeuse slipdresses and coolly deconstructed trench coats in pastel hues like lavender, blush, and cream toward the end of the show, it was Philo's layered leather clutches with rolled tops that really had heads turning.
If you can tear your eyes away from the parade of fuzzy slippers coming down the runway, then you can refocus your attention to the Spring lineup offered up by minimalist maestro Phoebe Philo. Above the ankles, Philo's collection delves into new territory, most notably with her accessories, but also with other twists — quite literally: the twisted fabric looped over a shoulder and fastened across the chests and waists of her tops, creating a new architectural storyline in the midst of her simplified, more menswear-informed silhouettes. To that end, we also get get unfinished, raw hemlines that felt a little disheveled, a little sexy maybe. Speaking of sexy, there was that, too — a pretty obvious nod to more sensuous Spring dressing with curve-conscious v-neck dresses, inset with eye-catching netting. As far as wearability, Philo's slouchy separates and clean-cropped leather may rank highest on that list, but it's the shoes and accessories that fascinate — and if the success of Céline's other handbags are any indication, then it's the fresh riffs on the clutch (resembling a kind of luxe paper-bag lunch) that will likely be the biggest draw come Spring.
- Trends: Netting, leather, and crop tops.
- Colors: White, black, navy, and a pop of pastel.
- Key Piece: The sexy dresses with deep necklines inset with netting.
- Accessories: Fuzzy, slipper-style flats and pumps, and roll-top clutches.
- Who Should Wear It: Chloë Sevigny and Anna Dello Russo in the shoes, while we're sure the rest of the fashion elite will be toting the new clutches next season.
This week's top stars ran the style gamut in printed pieces, pastel palettes, and chic travel ensembles. Kristen Stewart mixed color into her Fall wardrobe in Paris, working a yellow Balenciaga leather jacket and printed pants, also by the designer; Alessandra Ambrosio chased the fleeting Summer sun in a crisp white blazer, mint Hudson cutoffs, and studded Valentino pumps in LA; and Kim Kardashian wowed us in black and white colorblock Sass & Bide pants in Sydney. These ladies are just a few of the standout style stars, so cruise through to see who else was crowned, then shop their stellar looks for yourself.
While running errands in Westwood, Lauren Conrad looked superchic in this olive green Equipment blouse ($216) and these amazing Christian Louboutin black cutout wedges ($1,295). She finished off her streamlined look with not one but two designer bags: a Chanel and her black Balenciaga with rose gold studs. Lauren also showed off her brand-new Céline tortoise round sunglasses, which she recently tweeted about. Add Lauren's exact top and shoes to your Fall mix now to wear together, like she did, or with other standouts in your closet.
As she made her way through the airport in Sydney, Kim Kardashian revealed one of her chicest ensembles yet: a black scoop tank with black-and-white colorblock pants by Australian label Sass & Bide. The reality star accessorized with black flat-top Céline sunglasses, her "Mason Loves Penelope" necklace, a gold watch, black ankle-strap sandals, and a crocodile Hermes tote. Re-create Kim's slick travel style by pairing similar black-and-white pants — we love the Pucci ones below, as well as these by J.Crew ($128) — with a black tank and black statement accessories. Dress them down with flats for day, pumps for work, and sky-high heels for evening.
Kourtney Kardashian walked the streets of Miami with her family looking colorful in her Mara Hoffman printed high-low shirtdress ($368). While we can't take our eyes off of the eclectic tribal print, Kourtney's strategically stylish accessories — nude cat-eye sunglasses, white t-strap Fendi sandals, and a beige Céline luggage tote — are the reason her look is so spotlight-worthy. The reality star wore her dress in a summery way, but we think it would be just as fabulous for Fall. Sport it with tights, booties, and a statement coat, throw on a vest — leather, denim, fur — for further fun, or top it over a black turtleneck for unique styling. Then for some definition in your waist, belt it with a metallic skinny or wide belt.
As Summer winds down, warm-weather looks are limited, so this week's celebrity style standouts embraced the last of their minidresses and transitioned to Fall-friendly textures and darker hues. Our trendsetters this week were Kate Bosworth in a green Proenza Schouler tweed skirt, Olivia Palermo in an animal-print blouse and pleated Stylestalker shorts, Sarah Jessica Parker in a red printed Oscar de la Renta dress and polka-dot Manolo Blahnik pumps, and a few more including Miranda Kerr, Rachel Zoe, Emma Watson, and Kim Kardashian. Take a closer look at our fashionable picks, get inspiration for your weekend wardrobe, then shop their looks for yourself.
When Kim Kardashian started dating Kanye West, we noticed that she started dressing way edgier, and her latest NYC ensemble is just another proof of this style hypothesis. Kim paired up a white long-sleeve peplum top with a black leather miniskirt, then finished off with black ankle-strap Celine sandals and a Celine clutch. It's also no secret that Kim has been loving peplums lately. She has a white sleeveless peplum top and even a nude peplum dress. If like Kim you're feeling the minimalist vibe, mimic her latest black-and-white look by matching a white peplum top with a black leather skirt and ankle-strap sandals.
