Trend spotting: Kim Kardashian loves leather

Dec 12, 2013

It's no secret that Kim Kardashian is not one to shy away from trying something new when it comes to fashion. The reality queen and future spouse of Kanye West has, however, shown a preference for certain styles, such as form-fitting dresses and sky-high heels. One of Kim's edgier go-to trends is leather apparel, the versatility of which she's proven repeatedly by wearing the material as both the featured part of her look or a fashionable accessory from head to toe. Here are some styles we've seen her rocking that incorporate leather:

Black and white
Long before the baby and engagement, Kim and Kanye were spotted out and about in Soho two Septembers ago looking light-hearted and dressed to impress. While Kanye opted for high-end casual in dark leather pants a T-shirt accented with a thick gold chain like the Simulated Birthstone Personalized I.D. Name Bracelet With Heart Charm In Yellow Gold Tone 7 1/4".

Fashion on the go
Kim proved that Kanye's not the only one in their relationship who knows how to rock a pair of leather pants, wearing some sleek leggings in the material on her way out of Florida. Kim was seen leaving Miami International Airport looking calm and composed in a white knit top and long, flowy pinstripe cardigan. To match the metallic stripe in her sweater, Kim put on a pretty pendant necklace, similar in style to the 3.28 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia And Sapphire Ring In Sterling Silver And Rose Gold-Plated. Although her outfit was simple, Kim went all-out with her hair, styling her long locks into a complex braided updo.

Sweet look
En route to Kanye's recording studio, Kim and her future hubby stopped by a frozen yogurt shop to pick up a sweet treat. Kim rocked a fierce wavy leather miniskirt and knee-high boots, along with a simple black T-shirt. To dress up her all-black ensemble, Kim opted for gold bangle bracelets like the Mesh Bangle Bracelet In Yellow Gold Tone 8" adorned her wrist and her ears glimmered with a pair of silver stud earrings.
