Look-for-Less: Kim K’s Monochrome Ensemble

by on July 21, 2012

I’ve recreated one of Kim Kardashian’s simple-but-chic outfits she was seen out in with Kanye West earlier this week. 

I was hesitant to try the peplum trend  for the longest time  – afraid that the ruffle would make my already slightly-huge hips look even bigger, I passed up peplum skirts and tops consistently while out shopping. A couple of weeks ago, I bit the bullet and purchased a few peplum blouses from Zara, which I absolutely love and find to be quite flattering (PS: they’re especially good for girls who want to add the illusion of curve to them). When Kadeem posted Celeb Watch: Kanye West, I noticed that  Kim was wearing one of the tops I bought!

Kim Kardashian wearing a Zara cream peplum top, J Brand leather jeans, Christian Louboutin heels & a Hermes bag.

In light of our shared new-found love for peplum, I thought I’d do a look-for-less version of her outfit for anyone interested in sharing the style. Let me know what you think of both Kim’s outfit & my recreation in the comments section!
