Despite rising temps signaling people to bust out their cutoffs and sun dresses immediately, an increasing amount of leading ladies in style have decided to continue wearing pants for a while longer. The suiting trend has caught major wind, and even though a good pair of jeans never goes out of style, trousers have become a go-to favorite for celebrities and influencers alike. Kourtney Kardashian's bustier and trouser combo is the latest take on the workwear-inspired look, putting a sultry spin on otherwise basic black suit pants.
Bella Hadid donned a similar outfit at Marc Jacobs's wedding in early April, pairing a ruffly silk corset with wide-leg pants and pumps, while sister Gigi rocked an olive green suit and a top hat. As proven by the carefully balanced looks, it's totally possible to offset a roomy pair of slacks with a bold top for a night out, and it strikes an interesting dynamic between playful and powerful. As Kardashian's Instagram Story shows, a little bit of lace and a pointy-toed heel can elevate suit pants to new heights.
Kardashian has opted for lingerie-inspired tops in the past, pairing a suede bustier with distressed denim and mules. It looks like the mother of three is giving jeans a rest for now, and this polished outfit featuring slacks from Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens is an excellent departure from the norm.
An ideal balance between sexy and cool, the all-black look is worthy of copying, and it happens to be so easy to do so. The best news? There are plenty of ways to channel Kardashian's vibe, whether you'd rather go all out or layer your bustier under a sleek white tee.
