Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are at the forefront of celebrity power and style, especially as a married couple with a daughter, North West. Kim & Kanye are trendsetters for high-fashion looks and new releases from top designers. Kim Kardashian experienced a style transformation after getting closer to Kanye. Here’s how they did it:
1. Matching—But Not Too Much
Kim and Kanye go out into the public eye alone and as a couple. When they make an appearance together, they manage to coordinate their clothes just enough to make sure everyone knows who is whose, but not enough for their outfits to feel like two teenage lovers wearing the same shirt.
2. Toned-Down Glamour
Kim’s style before Kanye was a pumped-up, tighter version of what it is now. Most critics are receiving the change well. With Kanye’s help, olive, grey and subdued gold tones now grace most of Kim’s outfits. Without his fashion advice, she would have been donning a metallic silver bodysuit.
3. Still as Sexy as Ever
Toned down glamour doesn’t mean Kim isn’t flaunting what she’s got, whether it’s out in the open or just hidden enough for the imagination to be at work. Kim still looks great in “revealing” fashions, without overdoing it.
4. Kanye Leads and Follows at the Same Time
Kanye might help Kim pick out her wardrobe, but he still lets her take the fashion spotlight when they go out as a couple. If she’s wearing red, he wears white. If she’s wearing gold, he wears navy blue and grey. His style complements and enhances her torchy looks while still being unique in its own right.
5. Kanye’s “Regular Guy” Appeal
Even though Kanye wears top-end designer clothes, he usually strives not to go over the top with his daily wear (letting Kim take care of that…). He manages to maintain what is still clearly a top-of-the-line wardrobe. However, plain white T shirts and Jordan sneakers are still in his closet and it doesn’t seem like he minds wearing them, even as a celebrity fashion icon in today’s market.
