Rockstar Chic! Kourtney Kardashian’s Style Evolution Since Her Relationship With Travis Barker Began

Does a new man bring a new wardrobe? Kourtney Kardashian‘s style has changed quite a bit since the founder went public with her now-husbandTravis Barker, in February 2021. While Kourtney has always been one of the most fashionable A-listers in Hollywood, there’s no denying her look became a lot edgier once she started dating the longtime Blink-182 drummer.

In April 2021, the lovebirds took a romantic getaway to Utah’s Amangiri resort, where they posed for plenty of PDA-packed photos. In one such picture, Kourtney sported a black-and-white headscarf featuring a skull pattern. Later, in early May of that year, the mother of three, who shares kids Mason, Penelope and Reign with ex Scott Disick, shared a selfie to her Instagram Story showing off her necklaces.

Instead of diamonds or pearls, Kourtney opted for three silver chains. One of the pieces had spikes, while another was a choker fashioned to look like a skeleton around her neck.

If you’ve been a fan of the E! alum since day one, you know that’s a huge departure from what she used to wear during her relationship with Scott from 2006 to 2015. The former flames were known to coordinate preppy, pastel-colored outfits. Additionally, Kourtney’s glam consisted of up-dos and red lipstick vs. her adorable short bob and more natural makeup.

Of course, Travis has influenced Kourtney in more ways than one! “It’s the most normal relationship she’s ever been in. There’s no jealousy or petty behavior,” a source previously revealed to Life & Style. “They are both independent with their own interests.”

As the couple’s romance unfolded over the course of 2021, Kourtney sported more black outfits, chunky combat boots, spiked hoodies, latex dresses and other looks befitting of dating a rock star.

Kourt even sported an all-black ensemble when Travis got down on one knee and proposed to her on October 17, 2021. She donned a long gown featuring a sheer black skirt, which showed off her knee-high black leather boots. As she said “yes” to becoming Travis’ bride on a Montecito, California, beach, Kourtney looked like the perfect rocker wife-to-be!

Since officially tying the knot in May 2022, the E! alum continues to channel her inner rocker! And some fans have noticed the apparent fashion changes. However, the Lemme founder has dealt with a few critics. 

In March 2023, Kourtney clapped back at a commenter in response to an Instagram carousel she posted. 

“So not Kourtney! She use[d] to be so classy! Wonder what her family thinks of her new style?” the social media user wrote, to which Kourtney replied, “Ooooh inquiring minds would like to know this is so fascinating.”

While responding to social media comments shortly thereafter, with one user specifically asking if the reality star knew who the band Agnostic Front really was after being seen in one of their T-shirts, Kourtney said, “Absolutely not, and we’re not playing that game today. … It is a shirt from my husband’s closet and I will wear his shirts for life.”
