Here are some tips for dressing like Kim Kardashian without breaking the bank:
#1: Stock up on feminine tops and dresses. Ruffled tops and casual pieces with lace accents will help you create a feminine look without being too sweet. Kim manages to pull off this look by pairing the item with something a little more edgy and even masculine. You could wear a ruffled dress with some glamorous criss-cross ankle pumps for a sexier effect. Try something like this Vince Camuto One-Shoulder Ruffle Dress with a pair of glitzy pumps or booties.
#2: Stick with tight-hugging pants. Show off those curves in a pair of skinny jeans, leggings, or very fitted pants. When Kimâ€™s not going all glam for the red carpet, sheâ€™s usually spotted wearing some tight-fitting pants that show off your feminine curves. Skinny jeans are great for casual days as long as they have a little stretch. Stretch skinny jeans will help to perk you up in all the right places and bring out your hourglass figure. When youâ€™re going for a Kim-inspired look, pair these with a long drapey tee and a statement necklace.
#3: Try a modified jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are one of the yearâ€™s hottest trends and Kimâ€™s been spotted in these one-piece, curve-hugging ensembles on more than one occasion. Match these up with a pair of peep-toe pumps for a chic and sexy look. Try something like this Strapless Ruffled Jumpsuit from White House Black Market and donâ€™t forget to wear a statement bracelet.
#4: Be fierce in animal prints. Kim Kardashian is often caught wearing animal print dresses and animal print pants. Stick with super tight-fitting dresses that end just above the knee and wear some vampy pumps to round out your look. If youâ€™re going with animal print pants, keep the top a fairly neutral color and be sure to accessorize with a wide headband or oversized bracelets. Even when youâ€™re on a tight budget, you can get something like this investment piece: the K-DASH by Kardashian Gathered Knit Leopard Print Dress.
#5: Pick up a classic LBD. Kim always looks fabulous in a well-fitting little black dress (LBD) and goes all out with accessories. A flashy statement necklace, oversized bracelets, long earrings, and a designer bag will complete this look. And, donâ€™t forget about the heels! A pair of shiny patent leather pumps or ankle-wrap sandals will definitely turn some heads. Try something like this trendy Boulee â€“ Ciara Long Sleeve Dress in Black.
