It's Yeezy Week on The Mod Little Melanin. For those of you not in the loop, Yeezy is the fashion lined owned and designed by Kanye West. Kanye West, rapper turned fashion mogul, is the husband of reality star, Kim Kardashian of the E! television show, Keeping Up with The Kardashians. If you're like the rest of America, you probably have a love hate relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner clan for the excessive attention they recieve from the media. However, when you look at them on a level outside of their reality show, you can see that they are a normal family just like yours who gained fame from a couple of odd choices, we won't go into detail.
Kim Kardashian, who is arguably the most famous Kardashian, has become a style icon thanks to her husband's Yeezy clothing line. The line features a variety of styles and textures in a variety of earth tones, including nudes, khakis, creams and blacks. In fact, Yeezy has sparked a minimalist trend in women's fashion of casual wear, aka solids and basics (leggings, tanks, tees, and bodysuits) in the world of fashion. Many women can be seen rocking the trend from daytime to nighttime, just like Mrs. Kardashian-West herself. Here's an affordable take on a Yeezy outfit recently worn by Kim.
I love the khaki, often called army green, color that has been popular for the past few seasons and fell in love with Kim's look. While Kim is wearing a dress from Yeezy, the look can also be recreated with a two piece set. My entire look comes from Missguided.com.
To recreate the khaki dress, I paired the Basic Roundneck Bodysuit in Khaki and Long Ribbed Maxi Knit to give you a "dress" for only $36.00, a huge savings from the $2,000 Yeezy dress.
Kim has been a huge fan of long sweaters and dresses, especially when she was losing her baby weight from Saint. She wears them to the beach, dinner and everywhere in between. This one from Missguided.com is perfect for year-round and is made to be in your closet! The Long Sleeve Maxi Duster Coat in Khaki gives you an effortless Yeezy look with more bang for your buck! It's only $42.
Kim is wearing a brand new pair of Yeezy heels that have yet to be duped in affordable stores yet, but will probably be available closer to Fall. Instead, opt for another popular Yeezy trend the Perspex Boot! The Perspex Ankle Boots in Nude are to die for! They are see through, and I recommend going a size up for comfort.
Snakeskin has regained it's popularity this season and deserves to be in your closet, again! I recently received a pair of blush snakeskin heels that I cannot wait to wear this summer! If you'renot comfortable with a snakeskin heel, a purse is another popular option. This snakeskin clutch is perfect for year-round wear and looks way more expensive than it is priced at.
Yeezy Week continues tomorrow, with a Styled by Mod look.
