How To Style Your Black Bandeau

replicating the explosive kardashian-jenner trend

Last week, Kim Kardashian West basically broke the Internet (not for the first time), sparking much controversy when she posted a completely naked selfie with strategically placed black censor bars. From praise to criticism, it certainly had everyone, and I mean everyone, talking.

However, her selfie caused something else that’s a bit more unexpected: Lyst, the fashion-forward e-tailer, reported that they saw a 406 percent increase in global searches for "black bandeau" within 48 hours of Kim K’s post.

Kylie even posted the below, which is strikingly similar to Kim’s infamous snapshot.
