I’m a little biased, but the items I wore in the Karlie Kloss x Express runway show are the greatest ones in the collection. Sure, all signs point to looks being assigned partly on personal style — and yes, I did spend a lot of time wearing and starring at these pieces — but damn it, they’re just the best ones. They just are. It’s a fact.
However, upon watching (and rewatching) the full runway show, I see there are many other looks I also adore, some of which include these best-of-the-(biased)-best pieces. One of those was worn by Liz, and it featured the Karlie Kloss Cropped Denim Jacket worn as a shirt with a neck scarf and jeans. Umm, hello, this is perfect. Celebrity stylist Karla Welch killed it with this one. I was determined to recreate it.
But then all my dark wash jeans were dirty, so I did the next best thing: I grabbed another one of my Karlie Kloss x Express items and called it a day.
Not to brag but… I love how I look in this. L-O-V-E. Stare in the mirror for way too long love. Double-tap my own Instagram picture love. The boxy jacket with the booty-huggin’ skirt is perfectly balanced, and my second-day hair pulled into braided buns adds a casual vibe that pairs nicely with my moto-like booties. I added a neck scarf, à la Karla and Liz, plus a few gold accessories and bright red lips. This may be my new favorite weekend look.

I’m totally crushing on my curves in this tight skirt. HEY THERE, HIPS, NICE TO SEE YA! Maybe I’ll stop drowning you in oversized apparel. (At least every once in a while.)
I spotted this video when I was about half done with this post, which is pretty perfect. In it, Karla (who worked on the collection with Karlie, in addition to styling the models at the show) notes these Karlie Kloss x Express items as two of her favorites, and I clearly couldn’t agree more.
More of my Karlie Kloss x Express runway items styled my way soon! Stay tuned.
