Kim Kardashian’s Style: Looking Good and Feeling Good

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

Keeping Up with the Kardashians may not be your cup of tea, but you can’t deny the fact that the show’s star, Kim Kardashian, has amazing style.

I love the look shown on the left, which Kim recently posted on her blog.  While ripped jeans are everywhere this summer, I, personally, have yet to embrace this trend. Kim roll hers up and wears them with brown booties, which is a great way to dress up a pair of worn, casual jeans. This combo looks so good that I may have to reconsider my position on ripped denim.

A loose-fitting white button down shirt completes the look. Kim has the sleeves of her blouse rolled up–a look you can steal and adjust for summer by opting for a 3/4 sleeved shirt. To infuse your outfit with Kim’s “I’m not too dressed up” vibe, make sure that the white shirt you choose is slightly over-sized and baggy rather than skintight. No tucking in, either!

A final thought before singing off: KK’s attractiveness stems from more than just her flawless features and fabulous taste in clothing. She wears everything with a great amount of confidence, even though she is not a size zero. As the curvy-licious entrepreneur has said many times, she embraces everything about who she is and how she looks. I think that all women, regardless of their personal style, should channel their inner Kim by embracing this timeless philosophy.
