The Kim Kardashian Trend That Has Finally Reached Zara

Kim Kardashian West's style choices might be daring—but you can't say she's not pioneering. So much so that it often takes a while for the high street to catch up on stocking her most statement-making outfits. Case in point: the chain mail ensembles she's been boldly stepping out in since late last year.

From a flame-red Paco Rabanne number to sheer co-ords, as well as a floor-length couture gown for Cannes, she's definitely proved it's a versatile look. But she's not the only to wear the trend—Kendall Jenner chose a thigh-skimming chain mail dress for her 21st birthday party, which took us way back to the early Noughties, recalling Paris Hilton's own outfit for her big 2-1. The look has also been seen on Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid. And now it's reached everyone's go-to high street haunt: Zara.
