If you want to know what total trend commitment looks like, see Kim Kardashian West's newest outfit in Miami. She wore snakeskin-printed items head to toe, including a bodysuit, pants, and heels. Ready to test out the trend for yourself? A faux-leather snakeskin jacket would do the trick.

What's old is new again. Kim brought back a bag from the Takashi Murakami x Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage collection, which originally debuted back in 2008. She teamed the throwback bag with some of her signature pieces: a simple tank, track pants, and naked heels.

Leggings can, in fact, be worn on a night out, and Kim Kardashian West shows us how. She paired her high-waisted gray crop leggings with a simple top (she opted for a classic white bandeau), an oversize blazer, and her favorite pair of clear Yeezy mules.

While many celebrities have incorporated leggings into their evening ensembles, none have done it quite like Kim's glittery look. She paired her dressy stretchy pants with a tank top and heels equally that are as shimmery. Take a lesson from Kim, and don't be afraid to pair sparkle with sparkle—and add some more sparkle on top of that.

Think outside of the box when it comes to your going-out attire by opting for an unusual athleisure look. Kim really showed her confidence as she went braless while wearing these affordable athletic shorts for a bold evening look.
