All these years in the spotlight and, undoubtedly, some help from savvy stylists, have helped Kim develop her own fashion style, one that emphasizes her strong suits while elegantly hiding her flaws.
As her fans must know, Kim treats each and every one of her public appearance as if it were a runaway presentation, regardless whether she’s out to get coffee or posing for pictures on the red carpet.
Since her image is now a brand, she can’t afford to mess it up. InStyle magazine sums up the most important fashion tips from Kim, offering other curvy women out there the chance the be as fabulous as she is.
Number one on the list comes finding a good tailor: since we’re talking curves here, that means many outfits may not fit off the rack, which means a good tailor to make them just perfect is a necessity.
“Anything you wear should be proportioned to your body, and a good tailor will make sure everything fits perfectly. Shortening a hem line on a dress can make a huge difference!” Kim says for the aforementioned women’s e-zine.
Girls and women with a bigger bust and large hips must always look to accentuate their waist, Kim urges. By putting on a belt or a scarf tied as a belt, the waist stands out, which balances out the chest and the hips.
Curvy also means being prohibited from wearing oversized tops and dresses. The only thing that they can wear and which would loosely qualify as “oversized” are maxi dresses, the star explains.
“I know they are comfortable and they look amazing on Nicole Richie but flowy tops and dresses are not flattering on a curvy figure. They can make you look pregnant and they look sloppy in photos,” she adds.
Shapewear is also a must for curvy girls, especially if they’re planning on wearing a body-hugging, tight dress or outfit.
“Every woman from a size 0-14 should own Spanx! I love Shapewear by Body Wrap; they have a firm control long leg panty that makes my body look smoother and slimmer under fitted dresses without leaving any lines,” Kim advises.
One last tip – and perhaps the most important – from Kim Kardashian is that all women must love their body. Only after this can they start experimenting with their fashion to find the things that would most flatter it.
