23 Memorable North West Outfits Ranked Because Her Tutu Game Has Always Been Strong
Let me start by saying that I totally feel for North West: When your mother is Kim Kardashian, who literally has her own book of selfies out there, and your father is Kanye West, who literally has a song in which he calls himself "a god," it's inevitable that your childhood is going to be a little bit out of the ordinary... and totally under the microscope. But having fashion-forward parents also means "North West fashion" is totally a thing, and she's inevitably going to be one of the best-dressed babies out there.
So even though she's still a toddler, North West has a signature style, and is living every fashionista's dream by sitting front row at New York Fashion Week (even if North is throwing a tantrum next to Anna Wintour).
It's important to take this all with a grain of salt though, and to remember that North's parents are the ones picking her outfits at this point. North isn't a style icon yet, but she is pretty darn adorable. She already has some favorite items, like her Yeezus Tour bomber jacket and her trusty Dr. Martens, and is inspiring her aunt Kylie Jenner's fashion choices, so I'm so curious to see how North's burgeoning rocker style will evolve as she gets older.
But until that day comes, here's an unofficial, entirely unscientific ranking of 23 of North's most memorable looks so far:
23. Kidchella Birthday Outfit
For her first birthday, Kim and Kanye threw North a Coachella-themed party that they cleverly called "Kidchella." The idea is adorable, as is the flower crown. But the vaguely Native American-themed dress? I'm not a huge fan (especially since Khloe got in some hot water for wearing a headdress at this same party).
22. Givenchy Lace
If we're talking #squadgoals, this is it for me. North's lace dress is cut from the same fabric as her mother's, which is a nice touch, but North's clear discomfort about this situation makes me uncomfortable, even if her Dr. Martens with the white laces are on point.
21. Balenciaga Baby In Black
More all black everything, for every member of the family, including North, who's showing pride for her dad's music in a Yeezus t-shirt. Love the look, but am still a little worried that North might throw a tantrum.
20. Music Festival-Ready
The clean white kicks are just begging to get dirty in that sand because North is a child who is bound to get white things dirty, as all children (and some adults, including myself) are, but she looks ready to go to real Coachella, if you ask me.
19. Chanel Cardigan
Because do you know any babies who have their own Chanel quilted purse?
18. Airport Chic
Kim's outfit to get on an airplane is nicer than what I wear on a date with my boyfriend. North's outfit, on the other hand, is way more my speed. The all-black leather skirt from Kardashian Kids, as Kim notes in this Instagram's caption, paired with an oversized olive green jacket and tan Timberland boots look is one even I, a grown woman, would feel comfortable wearing to the airport.
17. Pink Ballerina In Tap Shoes
It was clearly "take your daughter to tap dancing class" day in the West household. The matching pink tights, pink leotard, and pink tutu, paired with the patent leather tap shoes and the two buns are simply delightful.
As you'll see, I'm a sucker for anything matching, especially when the whole family can get in on the fun. I've never seen a picture of North rocking these all-red booties, but they definitely look fly next to her parents' grown-up versions.
15. All-Grey Playsuit
A simple, all-grey outfit, but North is playing on a tire swing with a friend in Miami, so I think a high-fashion Chanel ballgown might not have been appropriate here.
14. Butterfly Clips
As a child of the '90s, I have some strong memories of butterfly clips, but they were nothing like these colorful creations in North's hair. These realistic-looking butterflies are way more fun than the clips of my childhood.
13. White Dress For Mother's Day
North got dressed up for Mother's Day in this sweet no-frills white dress, and of course was sat down to pose in front of the giant wall of white roses her mom Kim got from her dad Kanye that year.
12. Minnie Mouse Face Paint
This makeup look is a little bold for daytime... JK, everyone! North West is a toddler, so getting her face painted like Minnie Mouse is beyond age appropriate. I'd be way more concerned if she was already getting into contouring at this age.
11. Zoo Casual
Black pom-pom beanie, the first appearance of the Yeezus Tour bomber jacket, grey sweatpants, and some comfy black Timberlands. This is what happens "when auntie Koko dresses Nori," according to Kim, and I like it.
10. Monkey Robe
This robe takes the phrase, "Monkey see, monkey do," to a whole new level. But it's perfectly age appropriate, and ideal for lounging in your mom's hotel room as she gets her hair and makeup done for the day.
9. Black Ballerina Outfit
All-black? Check. Top-knot? Check. Tutu? Absolutely. This outfit is classic North West.
8. Grey Pom-Pom Headband
North's being a baby in this grey onesie, spit and all, which is adorable, in and of itself. But what makes this outfit over-the-top cute is the matching grey pom-pom headband. This is Baby Fashion 101: Simple, functional, and adorable.
Because what toddler doesn't need a designer bulletproof vest?
6. Skunk Costume For Halloween
For North's first Halloween, she dressed like a skunk, and was seriously the most precious skunk I've laid my eyes on.
5. Birthday Suit In Vogue
Almost everyone has that one picture of themselves from when they're a baby, lying totally naked on a rug or a couch or something, butt up in the air. It's the picture you're worried your parents will show to your boyfriend or girlfriend when you bring them home for Thanksgiving for the first time. But you know you've reached a new level of celebrity when that picture was featured in Vogue.
4. Matching Sweatsuits With Dad
Don't tell me this doesn't warm your heart a little bit, because I really don't think there's anything cuter than napping with dad in matching grey sweatsuits, especially if your dad happens to be Kanye West. Totally #twinning.
3. All-White Blazer And Tutu
Of all of North's ballerina outfits, this all-white one is my favorite. But I might also be biased due to North's withering stare and perfect finger-wag toward the papparazzi in this picture.
2. Rolling Through The Airport
Not only is North rocking the Dr. Martens and that Yeezus Tour bomber jacket, she's also literally rolling through the airport on her beloved Frozen rolling suitcase, because North clearly DGAF.
1. Front-Row at NYFW
North's just acting like the one-year-old she was (in another chic all-black outfit that probably costs more than my rent), and few things are more stylish than embracing your age.
