23 Trends From This Year You Can Blame on the Kardashians
From selfies to literally destroying America, people are always trying to blame stuff on the Kardashian & Jenners.
But you know what we should actually be blaming their for? The clothes we buy.
There is literally no group of five women who have more of an influence on popular fashion than this family.
So much like Meryl Streep schooled Anne Hathaway in “The Devil Wears Prada” about how fashion magazines influenced her sartorial choices, even though she didn’t read them or think they were cool, I’m here to show you all the fashion and beauty trends of 2016 the Kardashian & Jenners had a hand in making cool.
Here’s my exhaustive, and exhausting, list.
1. Liquid lipstick
This is who your dehydrated lips have to thank for all those liquid lipsticks you’ve been buying.
2. Corsets over tops
It still stuns me that this has caught on.
3. Bike shorts
Athletic wear: it’s not just for pants anymore.
4. Oversized shirts
2016 was a great year for food babies.
5. Neutral-colored lips
A lot has changed since Tay Tay ruled the pop culture world with her little red lips.
6. Exposed bra t-shirts
Because why spend money on lingerie that nobody sees until it’s “u up” o’clock?
Chokers instantly became uncool the second T Swift and her squad started wearing them, but you can blame the Kardashians for wearing them so much that she got wind of them in the first place.
8. See-through shoes
For the love of Snapchat, don’t forget to get your toenails did.
9. Perspex heels
Otherwise known as stripper heels.
10. Boxer braids
A great trend for the girl who wants to spend an extra 30 minutes getting ready for work every morning.
This one’s all Monica Rose, stylist to literally every socially relevant celebrity.
12. Dad hats
Oh haiiiii patriarchy.
13. Slips over t-shirts
I’ll never forgive you for this, Kenny.
14. Lace-up everything
They were way ahead of everybody else on this one.
15. Thigh high boots
These have come a long way since Anne Hathaway (yes, Anne Hathaway!) debuted the first relevant pair of the 21st-century in “The Devil Wears Prada.” Still, be honest, did you even think about buying a pair of thigh high boots before this summer?
16. Sheer everything
I see London, I see France, I see Kardashian underpants.
17. 2000s Nostalgia
If only they knew how truly horrible 2000s fashion can get.
18. Off the shoulder shirts
Let those armpits breathe, baby!
19. Lingerie as outerwear
Honestly, it’s about time this came back.
20. Pablo merch
This is one I’m super guilty of. My boyfriend and I were at the MSG show where Kanye first started selling Pablo merch and we didn’t wait in line because we thought they were nowhere near cool enough to spend that kind of money on.
But the more I saw the Kardashians & Jenners wear the merch, the more it started to look cool to me and before you know it, I was counting my lucky stars that I was standing in line at the pop-up shop in NYC dropping close to $100 on some overpriced and overhyped merch.
Thanks, guys. My bank account owes you one.
21. Tube tops
Next time you’re hiking your tube top up as it slides down your boobs, thank the K-Js.
Satin is the poor man’s velvet.
