Kehlani is steadily stepping into the role of fashion savant. The Oakland-based singer-songwriter participated in her first New York Fashion Week this season, handling it like a bona fide pro. She sat front and center at shows like Jeremy Scott and Area in some truly bold looks, which included everything from red patent leather thigh-high boots to glossy knee-length skirts.
Her latest onstage look, posted today on Instagram, finds her streamlining this high-impact aesthetic just a bit—in lieu of puffer boots (yes, those do exist) and oversize leather jackets, Kehlani opted for sleek and trendy white patent leather boots with a chunky heel, a sports bra, and a pair of Caitlin Price pants that are a bit more glamorous than they first appear. The bottoms were essentially a hybrid of a pair of joggers and a red carpet–appropriate gown, thanks to a flowing black-and-white piece of fabric that extended halfway around her body. The results prove it’s possible to rock a touch of glamour while staying true to one’s inner tomboy.
