Kylie Jenner Has Entered A New Style Era — And It’s Not What We Expected

Could Kylie Jenner be leaving her famed skin-baring styles and curve-hugging silhouettes behind? The youngest KarJenner sister seemingly soft-launched a new style era in recent months, stunning fans in a series of strikingly pared-back looks posted to her Instagram grid.

The first outfit was an ultra-girly DÔEN dress complete with dainty blue florals that looked straight out of the French countryside. And while she did put her signature KingKylie spin on the look via a pair of low top sneakers by French label Marine Serre, there’s no denying Kylie stepped out of her fashionable comfort zone with this one. Fans were quick to assign the shift in style to Kylie’s rumoured romance with French-American actor, Timothee Chalamet. The comment section on her Instagram account was flooded with quips like, “Did timothee take these 🧍🏽‍♀️” and, “in your Timothee Era”. Honestly, if that’s what a Timothee era looks like, we’re here for it.

Another look that signalled a fashionable new period for Kylie consisted of relaxed, mid-rise jeans, a cropped white T-shirt, gold ballet flats, and a raffia Miu Miu tote. This time, fans assigned the shift not to Timothee but to Instagram it-girl and fashion designer, Matilda Djerf. Strengthening the theory that Kylie might have taken style notes from Matilda was a tortoise claw clip fastened to her waist band. ICYMI, the claw clip has long been a favourite of Scandinavian beauty Matilda, who is partly responsible for re-popularising the ’80s-esque bouncy blow out thanks to her signature waves. It’s not the first time Kylie has experimented with a new style. Just last month, while on a trip to Paris, fans noticed she appeared to be jumping on the ‘quiet luxury’ bandwagon, perhaps inspired by her former bestie, Sofia Richie.

Kylie demonstrated an undeniable shift towards an old money aesthetic while on her European adventure, stepping out in three understated, effortlessly elegant looks. The first was a black halter-neck dress by Bottega Veneta, which she accessorised with monochromatic sunglasses and pumps.
Then, for a day-time outing, the mum-of-two opted for an all-white ensemble, consisting of a modestly-cut dress, a white top-handle bag, and strappy sandals. And rounding up this serious of stunning — though undeniably different to her usual ‘fits — looks, Kylie opted for a demure mini-skirt and jacket ensemble. The understated embodiment of ‘quiet luxury’, if we do say so ourselves.
And with Kylie’s ability to set a trend well and truly documented, could we all soon be swapping our form-fitting ensembles for something a little more low key? Only time will tell.
