Kim Kardashian Gave a North Face Jacket a Sexy Makeover and My College Self Is Shook
I like to think I was just ahead of my time in college, that my sweatpants and North Face fleece ensembles (complete with UGG boots) were just never appreciated for being the cutting edge athleisure that they were. Maybe that's the case, or maybe my 19 year-old self lacked the fashion ingenuity of a Kim Kardashian who turned a North Face parka into a full on street style lewk with just a pair of leather leggings, white boots, some fresh contouring, and a slicked backed pony.
Sure, we've seen Kim throw on any number of sportswear and athleisure brands, repping Vetements, Supreme, Nike, and Adidas, not to mention her husband's own Yeezy brand. But, North Face? The brand is more college-freshman's-first-Winter-on-campus (that was me!) than style icon. It's more preppy and practical than sexy streetwear, but just watch Kim prove us all wrong. I never thought I'd eye a North Face jacket with such envy, but cut to me pulling out the box of college jackets I've had in storage, desperate to recreate the outfit. This is the cool-cum-sexy take on Winter athleisure that I've been waiting for since 2005.
