The Kardashians Are Competing to Bring Back the Silky Duster (Kim's in the Lead, of Course)

08/05/2014 at 03:30 PM ET

Fashion Fact: The Kardashian sisters are krazy trendy. Just step into any of the Dash boutiques (or visit their Instagram feeds), and you’ll see all their envelope-pushing looks. They love to take fashion risks, especially if it means bringing back the ’90s whenever possible. Their latest of-the-moment style obsession? The duster-meets-robe jacket. And naturally, Kim seems to be the biggest fan.

It’s no surprise that the 33-year-old reality star (and high-fashion fanatic) seems to be the one spearheading this trend. On Monday for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she wore a long silk teal duster robe over a corset bustier (which put her cleavage on full display of course) and wide-leg pants. The Ulyana Sergeenko topper cinched her waist and flaunted her hourglass figure. Look familiar? Kim wore something very similar to sister Khloé Kardashian‘s 30th birthday party on a yacht. Leave it to Kim to find a way to combine lingerie with high-fashion with boat travel.

Kourtney has also experimented with this trend, paring her pale pink topper with silk shorts during a recent visit to NYC, though her look was more “lounging PJs” than “high-fashion boudoir ensemble.” Lastly, the youngest member of the family paired her pale-blue Asos calf-length coat with a white romper and strappy heels.

What do you think of the duster look? Are you a fan of the trend? Sound off below.

Why is this person considered a fashionista, a fashion icon or a fashion whatever? Greased hair, 8 pounds of makeup, always wearing something showing her ta-tas less than half covered, always stilettos, a frozen face open mouth trout face, and a flowing house robe worn outside let alone on national television.

This is not classy, it is not stylish, it is not pretty and it is definitely not lady like. If you need to dress like a street walker to feel validated, maybe more of your money should be spent on healing your spirit and your self-absorbed vanity. It’s pitiful.

Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O were given more attention from their class of wearing a hat, minimal make-up and dresses that left so much to the imagination with hairstyles that are timeless.

If my daughter left our home, let alone Santa Barbara to go to Los Angeles to appear on television, she certainly wouldn’t even start off looking so horrid let alone leave that way on intention.

Kim may be trying to make the silky robe trend happen, but Kylie seems to be the only one pulling it off.

Maybe she’s just using it to hide her muffin top

This is not a fashion statement. Kim is fat, false and fake (the 3 f’s). The fourth f I leave to your imagination. She has NO dress sense and is an embarrassment to women-kind

Looks like something Dorothy on “The Golden Girls” would wear.

I don’t know which one is in the middle picture above but she looks like she just rolled out of bed. What’s up with the entire outfit?? I don’t know who is on the right end either but she looks stupid too. Kim looks nice.

Kim has no class, dresses horribly, and is so arrogant! Her mother is even worse as she makes sure they get in the news all the time and yet what have they done except make money??

Hmmmmm. I think these girls are brilliant! I’d totally follow a fashion trend where I can wear my pjs at any time.

Carrie in Brussels on

The young one (whatever her name is) is definitely the only one pulling this look off.
