Kim Kardashian's Fall Essentials: Capes and Velvet

Yes, you read that right. Kim Kardashian says that superhero-inspired toppers and an unforgiving fabric are two of the things she’s most excited to wear this season.

When asked by PEOPLE on Tuesday night what her fashion must-haves are, Kardashian answered without hesitation: capes. In fact, she said she recently bought a couple simple black ones. “I’m really into velvet. I think texture is really cool,” added the star, who wore a curve-hugging, cleavage-baring green dress in — you guessed it — velvet to the Midori Makeover Parlour event in Santa Monica, Calif.

(Apparently, not everyone is so smitten with velvet. Four out of five people say that her ensemble was a fashion fail.)

But fashion risks aren’t all Kardashian is taking this season; she shared that she plans to buck beauty trends as well, ditching her dark hair for lighter strands as the temperatures drop. “I actually like to lighten my hair in the fall a little bit. I think it looks pretty when you do the opposite of what people would really [expect].”

We just have one question: Since Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West like to coordinate their outfits, can we expect to see him in capes and velvet anytime soon? Tell us: What do you think of Kardashian’s green velvet dress? What about her newfound love of capes? Fashion-forward or fashion faux pas?

it’s easy to know what to wear, just wear the exact opposite of kim kardashian.

Kim needs to forget this dress. It makes her look short waisted and wide load below waist. Throw it away

there’s pictures of her with the back seam of this dress ripped open because it’s to tight for her (shocker)
