Between balancing hours-long Zoom meetings and raising 2-year-old daughter True, Khloé Kardashian says there’s one daily self-care practice that helps keep her mental health in check — her sweat sessions.
For me, working out is a huge part of my life and it clears my head. It makes me feel strong and accomplished. That little bit of self-care is what I need. “It’s a stress reliever. I get anxiety sometimes. It takes all of that away.
A by-product of [working out] is you look good. But my main focus isn’t about, ‘Oh, I need to lose 5 lbs.’ I don’t care about the scale. I feel energized and I’m ready to chase my daughter [True] around for the day. It gives you that little oomph that I need.”
About Zoom meeting:
When I do Zoom meetings, I go in a ‘professional’ room and not just sit on my bed. I still have to remember, ‘Let’s put on a little makeup, change the scenery and do Zoom in my office so it still feels like you’re having those productive meetings
The other day I had a three-hour Zoom and I felt so bad because it can be so repetitive and unmotivating at times. So we have to learn. I make sure to carve out time for my daughter and myself, whether it is working out or taking a little walk
About the new collection for Good American:
I’ve been pushing to do ’90s denim for over two years now. This has been something I really took control over. I think I had not only myself in mind but my younger sisters too, because Kendall [Jenner] and Kylie [Jenner] love the baggy denim. I think everyone in my family now has something they can wear from Good American.
I personally love our Good Legs. I’ve just been wanting a really relaxed fit, something that gives you that edge. It’s definitely a more comfortable, lighter-weight denim,” she says. “It falls really nicely and gives you that baggy element that is so true to the ’90s era.
If you don’t want to be in sweats or leggings that we’re all so used to over the past year, I think this is the perfect transition,” she says. “And I will say, I love, love, love to wear jeans. But during the pandemic, thinking about throwing on a pair of jeans that were super tight has not been something I’ve been excited to do. It’s probably sad to say, but I really have not put on a dress or something really fancy in about a year. So this gives me an excuse to wear denim and still be super comfortable.
Growing up as a teenager in the ’90s, the decade’s iconic fashion moments hold a special place in Kardashian’s heart. “Victoria Beckham as Posh Spice was just an icon in our family. It was just all the mini dresses and her legs for days. And the short bob, it was just such glamour that I loved.
It was just such a fun fashion time because there was such a versatility. You had Gwen Stefani from No Doubt who was more punk and edgy, and then Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Moss. It was such a great variety of fashion. My mom’s a borderline a hoarder, but maybe in a good way,” the star says with a laugh. “She holds on to these incredible vintage Alaïa or Jean Paul Gaultier pieces that she had in the ’80s and then everything repeats itself. So then we wore these fabulous dresses that we would steal thinking she would never notice.
There was one particular pair of Jenner’s Chloé bell-bottom slacks that all the Kardashian sisters would be fighting to get their hands on, Kardashian remembers. “I think I only wore them because my sisters would wear them and I’m younger. I was like, ‘Well, they must be cool if they’re wearing them.'”
She adds: “So I don’t even know how I styled it together. I just wanted to do what [my sisters] were doing!”
