It was back to the future for Kim Kardashian today as she stepped out in a colourful Eighties-inspired jacket with prominent shoulder pads.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star turned heads as she left her hotel in South Beach, Miami, wearing a pair of skin-tight leather pants, a black scoop-neck top and the multi-coloured jacket with multiple zippers down the front.

Kim completed her outfit with a pair of black heels and ultra-dark shades, her hair piled high in a topknot.

It made a nice change for Kim, who has been wearing an excess of black and white outfits in recent weeks.

The reality TV star was later seen arriving at Miami airport, where she was photographed going through security before getting on a flight to Los Angeles.

Kim
has been in Miami for the filming of a third season of Kourtney and Kim
Take Miami, a Kardashian spin-off series which first aired on E! in
2009.

'We are both so excited to be here,' Kim wrote on her website today.

'Miami
is one of my favorite cities and I’m looking forward to spending the
next few months here with Kourt, seeing some friends, and spending time
at Dash Miami. Lots of exciting things to come!'

D-A-S-H is the clothing boutique first started in LA by sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe.

Kim and Kourtney are said to be considering moving into a luxurious Miami property that is going for $5.8million.

The U.S. stars want to live in the Mediterranean-style mansion while filming their upcoming reality show.

According to TMZ, crew members of
the show have been given the task to try and find the perfect home for
the pair while they shoot the new show.

The
ladies have clearly changed their terms and conditions as when they
filmed the first spin-off show in Miami, they stayed in hotels.

However, with Kourtney now being a mother-of-two, she clearly decided that she wanted a more homely environment for her family.

Upon arriving at Miami airport, Kim
made her way through the security line, taking off her jacket to reveal a
tight-fitting black singlet top.

She also took off her heels and ran barefoot through the metal detector.

Nowhere in sight was Kim's new kitten Mercy, which she has presumably left in Miami under the care of her sister.

She
did tweet a couple of new photos of the fluffy white pet, however – one
of the kitten lying in a pink cap, and a second of her running through a
wardrobe of Kim's shoes.

'Please have mercy on my shoes,' Kim wrote next to the photo.
