As Kanye West pointed out during a panel at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity this week, his wife Kim Kardashian is really important to the Internet, and therefore — whether we like it or not — has a pretty substantial impact on current trends, fashion and otherwise.
While the reality star’s taste has certainly improved since she’s been with West (and buddied up with industry insiders like Riccardo Tisci, Carine Roitfeld and Olivier Rousteing), she still has a knack for choosing outfits that will raise an eyebrow or two. Such is the case with the latest trend that the Kardashian/Jenner/West clan has latched onto: blazers without shirts underneath.
Kardashian has opted for this look a couple of times in recent weeks: First, there was the tuxedo-inspired white getup she wore to her rehearsal dinner (above, middle); then, on Monday she showed off even more of her mid-boob region while strolling through Manhattan. Then, younger half-sister (and new Givenchy campaign star) Kendall Jenner, chose a bright blue suit with nothing underneath during the promotional tour for the YA novel she wrote with her sister, Kylie.
Even West has experimented with the look, leading us to believe he may be behind the whole thing: He wore a very low-cut tank underneath his jacket during his rehearsal dinner, which you can only see if you look really hard. With the family's biggest style stars already adopting this trend, it's only a matter of time before Khloe, Kourtney, et al follow suit. They do all seem to have breasts that don't require a bra to stay buoyant, and can undoubtedly afford lifetime supplies of double-sided tape, so why not?
