If you’ve been keeping up with this Kardashian for a while (and let’s be real, who hasn’t been?), then you know her style has definitely changed over the years. Kim Kardashian credits Kanye for her style transformation she tells CNN. I definitely have to agree that there was a shift once Yeezy came into the picture, and I love the power couple status they’ve achieved, style and all.
Upping your style game just comes with the rise to fame, I feel, and Kim K really has taken that whole idea to the next level. She’s regularly dressed by famous designers, from Givenchy to Balmain, and has such a great personal relationship with the people behind the brands. And why wouldn’t every designer want to dress someone with this much star power, you know?
So, what has Kardashian learned about style? In the interview, she credits Kanye with helping her embrace her body type and rock things that make her feel truly incredible. Check out seven other ways that Kanye has clearly influenced Kim K's fashion sense for the better. I'm not saying her style wouldn't be killer without him, but she definitely has developed a cohesive aesthetic that's all her own since they became a power couple.
So, how has Kim K's wardrobe changed since Yeezy came along?
1. She Pushes The Limits
"[Kanye's] helping me push my limits a little bit and try new things," Kardashian told CNN. Like an all-sheer dress with white grommets?
2. She Owns Her Aesthetic
"Kanye sees what's out there on the streets and just knows how to translate that into something that would look good on me," she told CNN. That's really apparent in the way that Kardashian dresses these days, since she's all about making each trend her own.
3. She Goes Bold
When you're in the limelight this much, why not give them something to talk about, you know? Kim K's best style moments are her boldest ones.
4. She Embraces Black
"You know I loved color before, and I still do in moderation, but I think black really does look good on everybody." she said to CNN. Black is always a classic.
5. She Goes Simple With Accessories
"Before, I used to always think more is more and I used to accessorize and wear bracelets and earrings and necklaces. I used to do it all," she said in her CNN interview. "Now I definitely understand how much cooler it is just to be a little bit simpler." Because why would you ever need to wear anything besides that giant wedding ring and a delicate necklace?
6. She Uses Kanye As A Sounding Board
"I love my husband's opinion, so I always ask his opinion on everything and he always helps me put together my looks," she tells CNN. A little feedback never hurt anybody, you know?
7. She Embraces Her Body
"My body type is not your typical model body type. It's exciting that I feel that designers are seeing different body shapes," she said to CNN. Kanye isn't shy about loving her exactly the way she is, and designers are clamoring to have her wear her designs, so I'd say that it's great to be Kim K.
Kardashian's style shows that she isn't afraid to be herself, and you've got to love that about the way she dresses.
