Out of all five Kardashian/Jenner gals, I'd say the littlest one is the biggest fashion risk-taker, and her latest look proves it. Kylie Jenner wore a belt-meets-skirt hybrid to date night with boyfriend Tyga in West Hollywood on Thursday, and the strange novelty piece actually looked kind of cool. It's only a matter of time before tweens and fashionistas alike start copying this style — I call it the Kylie effect. Just wait and see.
The 18-year-old donned a fitted black jumpsuit by Australian designer Steven Khalil, complete with long sleeves and a plunging neckline. A basic all-black look is clearly way too tame for Jenner's eccentric style, so she layered the look with a unique fringed belt — actually, unique is quite the understatement. The high-waisted black belt featured thin black leather fringes that went all the way down to her ankles, making it look like a super revealing skirt of some kind.
At first glance I thought the statement piece was pretty strange, and wasn't sure how functional it was. But after taking a closer look, I realized it's meant to be more of a decorative item aimed to bring a little bit of edge to any outfit.
Check out the one-of-a-kind ensemble.
Weirdly, I'm totally digging this.
