Seems like he might have a type.

When it comes to dating, even celebrities have specific types and preferences. But while some so obviously gravitate toward significant others who are family-oriented, have entertainment backgrounds, or enjoy adventure, the women Kanye West dates all seem to like ... leather. And long coats. And monochromatic outfits, paired with leather and long coats.

Just take a look at Julia Fox, who is currently dating the rapper and designer. The Uncut Gems actor was recently spotted by West's side rocking a look that checks all those boxes — and, ultimately, reminds us of something West's ex wife, Kim Kardashian, might wear.

Over the years, we've definitely gotten used to seeing Kardashian in similar combinations. The reality star and SKIMS designer clearly loves a trench, form-fitting pairs of pants, statement shoes, and the color black — and there's a ton of photo evidence to back it up.

But could Fox's outfit choice just be a coincidence? A weird, one-off, winter style moment? Nope. According to an Interview Magazine story, the couple's second date was essentially a "real Cinderella moment" for Fox, where she got to raid West's hotel suite which was full of clothes. There are even photos of him buttoning up her up in that exact coat.

The next day, she was also seen wearing a leather trench, proving this Matrix-like outfit choice is now her overall aesthetic.

Sure, it's not your average romance story, but considering that West is someone who works in fashion, it doesn't seem that odd that he's attracted to a certain sense of style. This look is badass, elevated, and '00s-inspired — all things that make it fun and fashion-forward. Clearly, the guy has great taste.

West's dating history also make a case that this is, indeed, the outfit that many of his love interests wear. It could be coincidental (it's not exactly groundbreaking to wear long leather coats or prefer neutrals over neons), but in 2021, he had a rumored fling with Irina Shayk. Guess what? The model is apparently into this look, too.

At this point, we've seen plenty of people subconsciously (or consciously) shift their style when dating someone new. Even Kim's sister, Kourtney Kardashian, has developed more of a gothcore vibe since getting serious with Travis Barker. At the same time, it can be argued that Fox has remained consistent with what she likes, and perhaps she and West just have similar taste.

"I like a lot of leather, black leather. I like a boot with a heel," she told InStyle during an interview — which took place way back in 2019.

Kanye has remained consistent, too. The man clearly loves a good sweatshirt — it's been his signature look for years! — and, to be honest, we really can't fault him for that.
