Is Kylie Jenner entering a new style era? During a weekend in Paris beginning on May 27, the beauty founder was spotted in a series of looks that noticeably departed from her usual sartorial choices. As documented on her TikTok account, Jenner wore a few black and white ensembles featuring more modest silhouettes than her go-to fashions like formfitting dresses, plunging necklines, and naked fabrics.
She kicked off her Parisian getaway in a black halter dress from Bottega Veneta with an asymmetrical skirt. Though it came with a slightly low V-neck cut, she paired the look with a simple bag from the designer and Lanvin pumps. The following day, she was photographed in two refined, all-white outfits. She first left a Chanel store wearing a sophisticated cropped jacket and skirt set by Ferragamo, adding vintage Gucci sunglasses and pumps from The Row. Then, she changed into a chic Alaïa halter dress with matching white accessories, including a purse from The Row and Loewe sandals.
Jenner’s latest looks and designer choices channeled the quiet-luxury aesthetic that’s been all over TikTok, which puts a name to the understated, “less is more” style that appears effortlessly expensive. Think: elevated silhouettes, neutral colors, and luxury fabrics like cashmere and silk. The trend saw a recent resurgence following Sofia Richie’s wedding week in France, in which the the model shared a stream of elegant bridal wear. In fact, fans think Jenner’s unexpected fashion transformation may have been inspired by Richie and the popularity of the aesthetic. (Many noted Jenner wore a sexy Jean Paul Gaultier minidress with a conical bust as recently as two weeks prior.)
Whether Jenner’s Paris wardrobe is only temporary for the City of Lights or signals a new style direction, it’s certainly a change for the beauty mogul. Take a closer look at all of the outfits ahead.
