Street Style - Kim K

If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of the sisters Kardashian, especially Kim. Back before Kim was the socialite/actress/celebutante/model she is now, with an entourage of hair and make up assistants and stylists, she was a stylist/personal shopper herself. (Clients included Brandy, Lindsay Lohan, and childhood friend Paris Hilton.)

I love seeing what kind of outfit Kim wears in her day to day (unstyled) life. Sure, she always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, photo shoots, and public appearances, but wouldn't we all with the right "people?" What it really comes down to is street style.

Key piece to dress up a black tee and distressed jeans? A cropped, fitted blazer.

A printed skirt pulls together a white tank and neutral accessories.

Kim's blue leather jacket adds the perfect pop of color to keep the basic black/white outfit from becoming too (yawn) boring.

How to keep a masculine shirt-dress feminine? The right color choice to compliment hair and skin tone along with a waist cinching belt to show off curves.

The perfect way to wear horizontal stripes? With a simple skirt, necklace and pumps.

Even if you are not a fan of Kim, you can understand that looking chic is super simple. And you don't have to spend a fortune. If you have the basics in your closet all you need are some accessories (a fun pair of shoes, handbag, chunky necklace, a scarf) to complete the look. And my favorite piece of advice - a good pair of sunglasses definitely go a long way!

I hate to admit that I am a fan of Kim. In my eyes, I couldn't find any other reason to watch her other than her obvious beauty, which makes me a little shallow I guess.
Thanks for your validation on my comment at Bella's place. That's why I'm here, and you just got yourself another follower Missy. xo d
