Inspired By: Kim Kardashian

By Erika, Resident Fashionista

Say what you want about Kanye West; but, in my opinion, ever since he took over Kim Kardashian’s closet she has been a style super star. Sure, I get tired of her endless supply of putty colored (or tan or beige) crop tops and pencil skirts. And yes, I think a vibrant pop of color (I’m thinking jewel tones) every now and again would look stunning against her skin. But overall, she is generally pretty darn fly! Whether you keep up with the Kardashians or not, we can all take a few style cues from Kimmy K.

Off-Duty Leather

Kim has mastered off-duty style by pairing a leather skirt with a cool, casual white t-shirt. This may not be what immediately comes to mind when you think of “off-duty” but you can easily pull this outfit off on a Saturday afternoon by swapping out your heels for a pair of sandals or even cute sneakers.

Bold Bottom

First of all – no pun intended. Now that that’s settled we can focus on the bold red pencil skirt Kim is rocking with a simple grey turtleneck. To make this look work appropriate I paired it with a snake-skin print blouse. To keep the look cool I added a cropped leather blazer with a unique collar.

Monochromatic Magic

When Kanye took over Kimmy’s closet he introduced a world of monochromatic looks. These looks are easy to achieve and instantly make you sleek, sophisticated, and pulled together. Instead of white, I opted for a black monochromatic look. No matter what color you choose to rock it is bound to be flattering.

To top off the Kim inspired look I opted for a sleek low bun with Kardashian’s signature center part and a bold red lip.
