Kim Kardashian’s recent beach outfit looked more Hells Angels than holiday wardrobe. The unofficial queen of the sultry poolside snap gave the world another glimpse of her travels this week, captioning her latest Instagram pic: “Long time no sea”.
True to form, the mother-of-four found a way to make her outfit a talking point both online and off. Kim wore itsy bitsy bikini bottoms, with a long-sleeved top that clung to her torso after she doused herself in water. Y’know, as one tends to do at the beach. In addition, she wore a more perplexing, less beach-appropriate accessory: motorcycle gloves.
So. Many. Questions. Exactly what activities did the Skims founder have planned that required bulky gloves? Did she leave them on to make yet another viral TikTok hit with daughter North? Maybe she wore them to jump on a vacay Zoom call with Demna to discuss her next custom Balenciaga outfit? Is this the next phase of Kim’s rebound look?
But wait, maybe Kim is onto something. It wouldn’t be the first time the entrepreneur has single-handedly spearheaded a trend, or brought one back from the brink of extinction. Criminally photogenic couple Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are also partial to this particular accessory. Just a few days ago, the superstars were spotted walking side by side in New York, fingers encased in chunky gloves (of course Rih’s were from Miu Miu). Is this a sign we need to wave goodbye to our opera gloves and head to the nearest branch of Kwik Fit?
