The thong-pants trend has received a special Skims twist, courtesy of Kim Kardashian. On Sunday, the founder posed poolside in a nude sports bra and matching high-waist briefs peeking above slouchy sweatpants. “Sunday in my @skims ☀️,” she captioned the series of images. While she was highlighting the two-piece set, fans immediately directed their attention to the pants. Some suspected they belonged to her boyfriend Pete Davidson — speculation that wasn’t totally unfounded. With their oversized fit, elastic waist, and floor-sweeping hem, the sweatpants seem like they could definitely be “borrowed from the boys.” Simone Harouche, Kardashian’s stylist, planted the seed when he wrote “My favorite pants!!!” — a statement that prompts one to wonder what exactly makes them so special. “And Pete’s sweats🤔😂 so cute either way! 😍” one commenter remarked under the post. Others commented on her laidback vibe and natural makeup, with one user writing, “[S]tarting to look a lot like Pete davidson energy.”
It’s not uncommon for couples to coordinate looks, whether intentionally or not. And while the 41-year-old star hasn’t admitted to pulling pieces from Davidson’s wardrobe (yet), she may be taking notes from his generally relaxed fashion sense. After filing for divorce from Kanye West, Kardashian is entering a new fashion era, possibly trading her Balenciaga uniform for a more casual look that involves ripped jeans, flame catsuits, and midriff-baring sets.
So, does this mark the beginning of the duo swapping outfits or getting inspired by each other’s style? Only time will tell. Kardashian’s poolside post follows a joint outing where the couple — who have been dating for six months — attended the 23rd Annual Mark Twain Prize For American Humor at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. The two were spotted in all-black outfits, with Kardashian in a round-neck sequin gown and Davidson in a classic suit.
