This week, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) proudly awarded the 2018 Influencer Award to Hollywood phenomenon Kim Kardashian. While there are varying opinions that surround Kardashian’s success, it is undeniable that in the recent decade, Kim K has made a name for herself as one of the most influential women in the worlds of fashion and business, with an incomparable following and the ability to set lasting trends through means of the socialmediasphere.
In light of her recent award, the Couture Team, has arranged a short list featuring on-trend pieces that parallel Kim K’s award winning style!
Camo-Print sandals, Ankle Booties, and Platform Boots
As the wife of style and music icon Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has taken much her style influence from West’s successful urban luxury “Yeezy” brand that exhibits a laid back, minimalist aesthetic employing a variety of neutral shades and athleisure styles. These Manolo camouflage sandals reference Kim K’s frequent army print style while the crystal anklet detailing add just a touch of casual luxe. Citing Rick Owens as one of her favorite designers, we chose to include these Louis Vuitton Laureate Desert boots that exhibit and Rick Owens-like appeal of multidimensional texture and an urban black and white contrast. Often seen sporting beige Yeezy booties and practically inventing the latest “sock boot trend” these Manolo Blahnik crystal booties offer a similar sleek finish and the ability to blend well with Kim’s various denim and athleisure looks.
Although an apparent connoisseur of all things extravagant and luxurious, Kim Kardashian is known to tote around seemingly brand-less bags that leave bloggers running to google in search of their rightful designer. Single-hued designer bags such as this Celine Trio Edge bag and this Celine Trapeze bag with an understated appeal align with Kim Kardashian’s style that often exhibits a combination of classic luxury pieces with elevated basic ensembles.
Early 2000’s Resurfaced Trends
While recognized as an innovative trendsetter, one can catch Kim K frequently paying homage to trendy urban aesthetics from the early 2000’s in a pair of relaxed pair of hip-hugging washed denim, and accessorizing with pair of rimless tinted sunglasses similar to this pair from Chanel.
