The star opens up about her husband's style influence
Kim Kardashian has had too many style phases to count. But when she started dating Kanye West, her wardrobe completely transformed. Luckily, she couldn’t be more excited about her new aesthetic — because once you’ve been dressed by Ye, you never look back.
“He sent a stylist over years ago and said, ‘You’ve got to clean out your closet this is embarrassing,'” Kim told PEOPLE at the Revolve LA Social Club opening, adding that at first she cried to see all of her Louboutins and rhinestone platforms discarded by her now husband.
But old Kim is not lost forever — there is an archive that exists for her pre-Ye clothes.
“I saved them all for my daughter, before I even had a daughter, so one day she could see,” Kim said. “I wanted to just keep those memories, but I started over and cleaned out my whole closet. He [Kanye] really inspires me and has introduced me to a lot of people in fashion that I really respect and like their taste.”
Kanye’s influence has infiltrated Kim’s fashion sense so much, that she turns to his closet just as much as her own.
“I steal his shirts on a daily basis. I pretty much wear half his closet and half mine,” she shared. “I’ve worn button-up shirts with denim looks like one of his big Dickie shirts or his t-shirts and I’ll put a corset over it.” (Below a reminder that Kim can teach a ‘Lampshading 101’ kourse.)
Most of those T-shirts she’s referring to are from his Yeezy collection, which Kim says is easy to wear because it’s “really good.”
“If I didn’t genuinely love it I couldn’t fake it, so I’m really glad he’s really talented,” she said.
And her sisters love repping his brand just as much as she does.
“Kendall sent me this crazy text message like, ‘Why the f— don’t I have these shoes? I’m seeing all these girls wearing them!’ The shorter version of these heeled boots. I was like, ‘Oh my god, they’re on their way.’ So it’s a good problem to have when your sisters cuss you out over not having the latest Yeezy clothes.”
Kim stayed true to her word. Kendall and her squad are now decked in Yeezy footwear (see photo above). And we have a feeling all the KarJenners will be outfitted in Yeezy for decades to come.
