North West's parents, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, are known for their obsessive wearing of neutrals. The closest thing they get to color is a khaki, maybe a blush-tone pink if you're lucky, but the pink is so close to white-beige that it's barely passable.
Though, back in the pre-Kanye days, Kim used to wear neon yellow Christian Louboutins and Hervé Leger dresses in every color under the sun. Kanye, on the other hand wore those plastic glasses with the slits and accessorized himself with Goyard bags aplenty.
With a little brother on the way very, very soon, North now has to step it up and represent everything her parents do (that is, until she goes through a rebellious stage as a tween and dresses like Katy Perry). However, her rebellious streak is coming into play, as demonstrated when she went out with her cousin Penelope Disick and their respective nannies yesterday.
She combined the love of her mother's life (turtlenecks) with the loves of her father's life (destroyed jeans and sneakers) perfectly. But, she chose to accessorize it with — GASP! — a pink satin mini handbag. You go wear that color and stick it to your parents, North.
