Kim Kardashian Wears Leather Legging Boots Under a Leather Skirt (Because Why Not)

When we first saw the “Sweet Revenge” legging/boot hybrid from Tamara Mellon‘s debut shoe collection under her own name, we had two key reactions. First: Wow, the person who buys those is seriously brave. And second: How would one style those, exactly? Leave it to Kim Kardashian to address both of those points in her uniquely special way.

If the star wasn’t so faithful about documenting, in minute detail, her #OOTD every day on Instagram, we might have thought these were just knee-high boots under her second-skin ruffled and ruched Givenchy skirt — but no, they go all the way to her waist. While this leather-on-leather layering might have been a creative way to beat the cold and snow at New York Fashion Week, it’s a truly bold choice for L.A., where temperatures have been in the mid-70s all week.

Mellon, the former chief creative officer for Jimmy Choo, described her buzzworthy $1,995 boots as “a thigh boot that pulls right up into a legging.” They’re 100% leather and come in sizes S/M or M/L. And we are feeling incredibly sticky and chafe-y just thinking about cramming those under a tight leather skirt. But Kim doesn’t appear to be sweating it (so to speak), so more power to her.

What do you think about Kim’s unique styling choices? How would you wear those boots? Would you wear those boots? Tell us below!

That looks sweaty.

The legging/boots are cute by themselves. The skirt should’ve been worn w/something else.

to Guest who said she looked great…..sure does, until she turns sideways or around and you see that huge behind.

Ugly skirt.

I click on these stories for the same reason people rubberneck on the highway…because you know she’s going to be wearing something ridiculous that is completely inappropriate for her. For such a wealthy and pretty woman, she has absolutely no sense of what looks good on her. Just because they make it doesn’t mean you should wear it.

Awful outfit

I am so thankful I have an honest sister that would take one look at me in that outfit and say, “I love u but, no!!”

IMHO, this skirt would look better with the ruffle running down the side, and paired with an interesting peep toe stilettos, with a pop of color!!! But the leather on leather is just too much, too overdone, just like her….and what is up with that slicked down hair “don’t”? She is a cartoon character and too clownish in her appearance…she is pretty if she would just tone it down and be a bit more understated like her sisters!

Just go away…….far, far away!
