Kim Kardashian’s new uniform is a crop top and leather trousers

It’s giving 90s R&B girl band energy

One week before Christmas, we’d expect to be spotting celebrities wearing their festive best to parties and exclusive soirees– sequins, glitter, feathers… the usual winter holidays attire. 

But if anyone was going to go off-piste and serve us with an alternative winter go-to look, it was Kim Kardashian. It seems ‘crop top and leather trousers’ is currently pinned at the top of her sartorial agenda, as she sported the look we first saw at the beginning of December again this weekend for two completely different events.

If you thought you’d need a classic little black dress or an elegant suit to go from a Bar Mitzvah straight to a Christmas party this season, you thought wrong. Last night Kim nailed the vintage look, a cropped hip-hop tour t-shirt with leather trousers to her nephew Mason Disick’s Bar Mitzvah, and then onto Paris Hilton’s christmas party.

Kardashian-Jenner family friend Paris Hilton posted a photo to her Instagram story from her mother’s annual Christmas party last night with the caption: “My mom always throws the most iconic parties. 👑🥰 Loved celebrating the holidays with family and friends this weekend. 💖🎄 What are your favorite traditions this time of year? 🤔 #Slivmas ✨”

In the photograph Paris posed with her mum Kathy, sister Nicky, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. An iconic line-up. The Hilton’s encapsulated the festive season in their attire, sporting red hues, elegant embellishments, tartan and bows. Kris opted for a tailored black suit with floral embellishments, whilst Kim opted for the coolest high-waisted leather western-inspired trousers, paired with a t-shirt with Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg’s face on from the 2000’s West Coast ‘Up In Smoke’ tour, which she folded up to make cropped.

Perhaps her aim was to allow her jewellery to do the festive talking, as she paired the look with an insane diamante choker with a matching cross necklace that dazzled against the grey t-shirt.

The 42-year-old demonstrated just how versatile her look was, by wearing it to her nephew Mason’s Bar Mitzvah that same day.

On Saturday, Kim posted a carousel of throwback photos, asking her 336 million Instagram followers for thoughts on her latest hair colour created by Chris Appleton: “Thoughts on Honey? Should I dye my hair platinum again or go dark?”. The reality star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-lawyer sported the cropped blue Bjork t-shirt and low-waisted leather trousers at Miami’s Art Basel event earlier this month, one of two ‘crop top and trouser’ looks from her Florida vacation. One user commented “Is it just me or is she starting to look like a member of TLC lol”. We couldn't agree more.
