2016 has barely even started, and already Kim Kardashian has showed us a new side to her style. Even during pregnancy, we got used to her skin-tight, nude dresses and lace sheaths. We weren’t always into them, but we accepted them as an inevitably, because, hey, who cares. Your body, your right.
But now, in this new year of ours, Kim is doing the complete opposite of those looks. She’s gone casual. Not just casual, but super-casual. On New Year’s Eve, she wore a really basic hoodie, and she put her hair in braided pig tails. And on New Year’s Day, she wrote a post on her website extolling the virtues of cozy pajamas. It’s a brave new world for the hibernating Kim K, and, well, we’re all for it. Who doesn’t want to be comfortably cool? So, in honour of this, the year of sweats, we offer you these 10 sumptuous sweaters to keep you warm all year long:
