Whether or not you’ve actually watched an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you can’t deny that Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have great style. They’re on Mail Online every single day, they’ve got their own chain of shops in LA, New York and Miami – DASH – and their Kardashians Kollection for Lipsy is going from strength to strength. In fact, the first collection sold so well that they’ve had to double the size of the second Kollection.
I went along for a preview of the range, which I wrote about on the Very.co.uk blog, and now all the clothes officially became available to buy on 12 Febrary, I felt I needed to do an update. If you check the Lipsy website to view the new range, you’ll see that there are some similarities to their first Kollection as they’ve been inspired by last season’s bestsellers, but there are also some completely new trends like the floral jumpsuit I’m wearing in the photo below, which was taken at the preview.
You may notice that I have a microphone in my hands? That’s because I filmed a video of the clothes so you can see what they’re like in 3D. Plus it’s a good insight into what a press day is like (this one was very chic as it took place in the penthouse of The Sanderson hotel!) I’m editing the video right now and will post it very soon.
In the meantime, sit back, relax and let me talk you through my personal top 5 favourites.
(1) Vegan leather biker jacket, vegan leather skirt and aviator sunglasses
This is actually the first time I’ve heard of vegan leather and it means that it looks just as luxurious and high-quality as real leather but it’s not derived from animals. What’s really good about it as opposed to PU material is the touch -it’s so soft! The leather jacket has a lovely cropped cut, which is flattering for those who want to make their stomachs looks smaller. And who doesn’t?!
(2) Vegan leather dress
Bodycon. Leather. Sexy side zip. This is one diva dress! You could even wear a cashmere jumper over the top and take it from day to night. I need this in my life!
(3) Black lingerie-inspired dress
How stunning does Kim look in this dress? Her curves pour into it. If you’ve got a feminine figure and you’re proud of it you need this dress to lift your confidence even more. You can never be too fabulous!
(4) Monochrome jumpsuit
The lace jumpsuit from the first collection was a bestseller so the girls know jumpsuits sell well and I do like how they’ve smartened it up this season. With a v-neck and a high waist, this will sculpt you an hourglass figure – it’s a power jumpsuit.
(5) White mesh crop top and skirt
This is my personal favourite. I love it as it’s completely different to the formal lace dress of last season. Also, the white colour will really get you noticed! The length of the skirt means it’s sexy without being sluttish. Even if you don’t think it will suit you, why not try it on as it’s so different? VIPs need to stand apart from the crowds!
And you know I mentioned the collection had doubled in size? Check out all the new jewellery! For the first time ever there are Kardashian shoes (bottom of the photo) and Kardashian aviator sunglasses (top right of the photo).
The shoe boots below are my favourites – nude to lengthen the legs with gold to show you’re making an effort. The height will make your legs look fabulous as I always find when heels are high your calves look more toned. They come in black as well. I’m tempted to get both!
What do you think? Tweet @livelikeavip or comment below. Send me your pics and I’ll publish the best ones in a follow-up blog post. I want to see how you dress like a VIP!
Also, watch out for my video of the collection, which is coming very soon.
