Kim Kardashian loves sexy wear, but while leaving a friend's house in Beverly Hills, she showed off her more sophisticated side, which we hope to see more of. She started off by pairing a white silk blouse with navy jeggings and sky-high YSL pumps. We adore Kim's quilted Chanel bag and Hermes belt, but are particularly taken with her vintage-meets-mod Elizabeth and James zigzag jacket, which injects a touch of posh to her sleek look.
