In the world of Kardashians, it’s Kim who has been breaking new trends in fashion. And though the sheer look is something the model has nailed time and again, this time it was her accessories that did the talking. After all, with the New York Fashion Week starting off on September 8, what better way to create a buzz for husband singer-turned-designer Kanye West’s upcoming show than by sporting a head-turning look, and give a sneak peek while you’re at it.
The 35-year-old socialite star stepped out of her New York hotel in these thigh-high, see-through boots that were all plastic. Now, as most would agree, the wardrobe selection may have been appropriate for an overcast New York, but the thigh high clear PVC perspex boots from West’s upcoming Yeezy Season 4 collection is so bizarre, that the fact that she was sporting her stuff in a sheer baby-blue bra that shone through her oversized denim jacket (also from West’s collection) was so totally secondary.
In an otherwise near-perfect wardrobe – and we know that given the amazing appearances the TV reality star has given us – the plastic boots stand out as a sore point. While this is a great way to show off those perfectly toned legs, with two tiny holes at the bottom (on the side) for some ventilation. After all, wearing plastic on a hot or even clammy day can take a huge toll – even in the name of high fashion.
A take on the see-through sandals and ankle booties that were part of YEEZY’s previous collection – priced around $40 – these boots don’t really look very comfortable, but then, there is a price to be paid for high fashion, right!
