Just as we longed for an early escape from the unforgettable year of 2020, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have landed us right back in the early 2000’s, and it is safe to say it was the fashion throwback we did not know we needed, until right now. Think Juicy Couture, flip phones, low rise jeans, relaxed silhouettes and you’re halfway there.
Realistically, who would have thought 2020 to not only have been the year of the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic but also the year to take your velour tracksuits and oversized monogram Louis bag’s out of early retirement? Either way 2020 has undeniably been the year for cosy loungewear and Kim Kardashian’s namesake brand certainly have us covered to continue the trend for just that little bit longer.
Kim’s revolutionary brand SKIMS not only offers solution focused shapewear in an inclusive range of shapes and sizes that aims to enhance, smooth, lift or sculpt, but there is something slightly different for her latest collection drop. Kim’s new must have pieces reinvent the signature urban couture style of the pop culture duo, with a collection characterised by its playful yet stylish Y2K aesthetic. The capsule champions the classic velour tracksuit, low rise styles and relaxed silhouettes of the era that have certainly been reclaimed by the 2020 IT girl.
The retro capsule offers soft velour tracksuits available in 7 styles and 4 colours of Amethyst, Honey, Sienna and Smoke, ranging from sizes XXS to 4X. As well as offering minimalist essentials including bandeau tops, crewneck tanks, sleep shirts and long robes that can be mixed and matched with the signature sports luxe pieces. The pieces are available from the official SKIMS site, with prices ranging from $42 to £128.
