10 Ways to Add Kim Kardashian Style To Your Wardrobe

Here are affordable ways to get Kim Kardashian's expensive style.
Last night while on Snapchat, I watched as Kim Kardashian revealed a collection of custom Diet Snapple bottles featuring her likeness and the name "Kim's Peach Royal-Tea." My first thought was, "Since when do I follow Kim Kardashian on Snapchat??" My second thought, however, was that I have neglected to pay adequate attention to the style icon here on the blog. So for Throwback Thursday, we're paying homage to her Peachyness with 10 looks that show off not only her curves but her sartorial prowess, too. Scroll to see Kim's looks and re-create her style with my under-$100 shopping picks below.

Style tips you can steal from Kim Kardashian
1. For a cool travel look, Kim keeps her color palette simple in varying shades of brown. Her cognac moto jacket is an absolute must-have that you can pair with a skirt and top, as Kim demonstrates, or your favorite jeans and a t-shirt.

2. Kim sticks to her signature body-con silhouette which makes this black and white lace slip dress look sexy, not staid. It's never too early to start planning for Valentine's Day with our style pick!

4. Kim seems the most comfortable in the nude, whether she's wearing barely-there pinks, grays and whites with her wardrobe, or warm shades of beige, tan and gold with her makeup. This peach dress would look over-the-top in another fabrication, but in this hue, it totally works.

5. A trendsetter on the athleisure front, Kim rocks a velour tracksuit like it never went out of style. Get in on the trend with a hoodie made from this irresistibly soft fabric that you can wear post-workout and beyond.

6. To recreate Kim Kardashian style any day of the week, just follow this recipe: Duster + formfitting dress or separates + strappy heels. Our duster pick is in wear-with-anything black (plus it's super slimming and seasonless).

7. I'm obsessed with Kim's monochromatic layers in this look - another secret to her always posh style. Cozy up in this rich army green olive shade that looks gorgeous for fall and works with just about every skintone.

8. Kim's denim game is always strong. Here, she lets her super distressed jeans take center stage, opting for a neutral bodysuit, duster coat and ankle boots in similar shades of tan round out this edgy look.

9. Kim knows how to work with negative space, and while that sometimes means showing a lot of skin, she always does it with the most unique mix of textures and hi-tech fabrics. Swap your basic black pencil skirt with something like our pick which features modern laser cut details. Leopard duster and tube top, optional.

10. Of course Kim's accessories are always on point - literally. Elongate your silhouette with our pick that blends "strappy" and "sheer," arguably two of Kim's favorite adjectives.

Honestly I have never seen a celeb except maybe Lil Kim spend so much to look so very very cheap. Her strategy is to get as much press as possible in revealing apparel and alert the presss to every appearance so they will take pictures and publicize. thank god her dreadful fashion lines for Sears & Bebe are gone. As Tim Gunn has said her style is vulgar

Agree! I don't comment often on your choices, Dianna, but this is over the top. What is fashionable about KK? As Coco Chanel once said, (and no, I wasn't alive then), "less is more." I hope you are and boys, husband are well, I don't know how you do it, kudos!

Thanks Margot, well said. I appreciate the feedback and I don't take it personally, I try to show a range of styles and while Kim's is not aligned with my personal style at all, I think it's relevant - for better or for worse...

We are all doing well, aside from colds and cold weather. Hope your New Year is off to a great start! xoxo

Ha! that was meant as tongue-in-cheek, really with KK, "less is naked."
My New Year is off to a wonderful start with so much going on in fashion world, politics, personal, love it! Thanks.!
