It’s official: the days of safe styling are over. From layering lingerie over leggings to cutting the legs off five pairs of jeans, this week’s looks roundup proves the boundaries of fashion must always be tested. With Kim Kardashian still exploring her signature silhouettes and Uglyworldwide revolutionising the avant-garde, we have certainly been given a push to shake up our fashion game — and with a new season dawning, there’s no better time to start.

Kim Kardashian proves Marge Simpson could never

Loyal The Kardashians watchers will know Kim Kardashian is currently undergoing a personal style renaissance. And while comparisons to Homer Simpson’s wife may well have marred her confidence, it would appear she is back and better than ever — channelling a vintage gothic look hacked from Dolce and Gabbana’s archives. Pairing a wine-toned velour bustier with a matching drop cape, she retains her classic all-in-one style with metallic-effect leggings and a turtleneck, extending seamlessly into finger gloves and sock-style stiletto boots. Watch out Kravis, Kim’s coming for your vampire-esque bag.

Uglyworldwide rocks quadruple denim

In the words of Justin Timberlake, “what goes around comes all the way back around” — just like the artist’s short-lived affinity with double denim looks. Resurrecting the style with a personalised twist, Uglyworldwide posted yet another awe-inspiring look to the ‘gram — and it was all about the bottoms. Layering cut-out jean tops on top of each other, the Wonderland cover star creates a tiered maxi skirt — completing the look with a graphic printed baby tee and a baseball cap.

Dua Lipa serves a westernised Bridgerton ‘fit

Other than an obsession with old English declarations of love, Bridgerton also provided us with fashion trends — namely, the corset. And though she is never one to abide by the fleeting flow of trends, Dua Lipa serves up her own interpretation of it: pairing a lace-up corset with cut-out chap trousers. Remaining neutral in colour palettes, she contrasts the ivory material with a deep tan suede — which also features in the inserts of her pant legs. Toning down her usual outlandish drip in place of some simple gold jewels, Dua catapults the Victorian aesthetic into the modern age.

Charithra Chandran shows off her range

Speaking of Bridgerton, we had to include this sizeable serve from Charithra Chandran — who proved herself to be a triple threat when it came to the art of cocktail evening dressing. Though seemingly simple at first glance, the understated details of her pastel yellow dress create a look as timeless as it is elegant. Opting for an asymmetric construction, the fabric at the end of the dress slit scoops softly back onto her opposing hip while a chunky chain entwines with the fabric at her shoulder.

And, as though she hadn’t made enough of a statement, her scroll-through also featured this Ahluwalia piece — a coordinating shirt and mini dress printed with graphic portraits. Blocking emerald green with ruby red, the look was tied together with a cascading red ribbon — a total encapsulation of the designer label’s unique patchwork techniques to create totally one-of-a-kind pieces.

Rina Sawayama dresses for the devil

To complete this week’s roundup, Rina Sawayama gifts us with this burlesque-meets-cowgirl outfit while celebrating the release of “This Hell”. From the white hat fitted with crystal star accents to her chainmail leotard, Rina sparkled from every angle. And, fashioning a diamond-fringed gilet as a makeshift skirt, she also demonstrates how to show off a bit of cheek without committing to fully bare bottoms. Finally, choosing a pair of black and white cowboy boots, Rina danced well into the night — and dances us out into the week with a hefty dosage of fresh fashion inspo.
