Love it or hate it, Kanye-endorsed Kim Kardashian has really become a modern style icon. As such, it’s worthy to pay attention to the trends she’s trying out, and the latest is one you’re definitely going to have an opinion on. The leotard-like tops she sported in Paris gave everyone an eye-popping view, yet somehow seemed to stay magically put. Fashion magic?
I’m pretty sure it wasn’t mystical or a healthy dose of double-sided tape. Instead, it looks like she’s wearing a bodysuit. And before anyone starts to cringe, let’s talk. Plenty of fashion editors are espousing it as the perfect pick for wearing with on-trend mom jeans (a favorite of Simone’s), since the sleek, tight top will counterbalance the boxy and not-so-sexy fit of the jeans. Both of Kim’s outfits are easy examples of just why the piece is so smart.
Have you ever tried to tuck a tank into a pencil skirt? It’s hard. Like, impossible-hard. Plus, the blush version she picked had a sexy, ’70s-era leotard vibe that looked amazing on her.
And while the tucked-in top might look sharp when freshly tucked, it starts to get puffy as you move around and is guaranteed to slip out of your waistband when you bend forward or get in a car.
Not a problem for Kim’s bodysuit, which stayed firmly put when she slipped into her vehicle.
