Hi there! Thanks for popping back to join me for some hourglass inspiration. This is a follow-up to the recent post I did on Kim Kardashian Hits and Misses; in this post is just a bunch of outfits that I really found flattering on her, whether they ought to be or not. They worked for me anyway – see what you think xD. There are unfortunately a couple of sheer tops here but I honestly feel it adds nothing to the outfit, and the look could’ve been just as good if not better without showing off the nips. But I’m sounding like a grandpa now. Let’s stop ranting and look at Kim’s awesome outfits from this year!
Khaki shorts outfit: if you showed me these jean shorts on a hanger, I’d have a seizure trying to picture how bad they would look on an hourglass shape. So much everyones-mum-in-the-eighties imagery going on…
But I think KK is pulling this off due to the tight top, and length/slightly A-line cut of the jean shorts, and the presence of some awesome heels. Hmm. I’m not sure I’d go there myself, but she’s doing ok with this….*shrug*
Bustier and tailored trousers look above – what’s not to like? It’s elegant, everything is tailored to perfection to her body, the fabric on the trousers looks like it drapes like nobodies business. An hourglass always tends to suit a bustier/corset style top (although most women also do, not sure it’s an hourglass thing per se) but we stand to benefit the most due to small waists, tight fitting top plus or minus big boobs.
I really like this simple stretchy dress – the colour is perfect against her dark hair and tan; the square neckline is flattering, and the tight fit of everything just serves to enhance her beautiful figure. Of note, I think she has control wear under this dress, there’s a little indent on the thigh which suggests this to me, so don’t be afraid to invest and wear control underwear even on casual days.
Joggers and white tank top; I really like this look on her – I mean, the grey marl sweatpants don’t exactly minimise the butt and hips, but the tight tank top seems to allow for the sins of the sweatpants quite easily. I’m definitely going to try this look out – the comfiness of the joggers is calling to my soul. These photos were taken on two different days with (I think) two different joggers and sneakers (the right hand joggers (sweatpants) have a tie-cord and the shoes are flat soled). I think I prefer the right side look overall, which may be down to the slightly different details, or may just be the angle of the photos.
Swimsuit and jeans look above: an easy, comfy outfit that looks great. The square, low cut neckline is extremely flattering and I like the optical illusion the colour blocked sides of the swimsuit provide, making her waist look even smaller. Her jeans are mid-rise which leaves plenty of room for her torso in this outfit. Perfect proportions.
Purple outfit above: sorry about the nips in this photo, but the outfit is just amaaaaaazing! I love the toning colours, the tight fitting high neck top is somehow working (actually, it may be working better because the sheerness adds some ‘features’ to the upper body rather than being a high-necked elongated bulky blob). Personally I feel a half sheer sweetheart neck top would have the same effect (sheer over the neckline, opaque over the boobs). Anyway, the high waist trousers tucked into high boots is really working – I think what’s happened is that her proportions have remained in balance, but just shifted up. The high neckline, the high waist, the high ankle-line. But I really like the way she’s tucked in her trousers. The puffa jacket is meh to me, but in this picture I must admit it looks pretty damn cool.
Ok that’s all for now, hope you enjoyed analysing why Kim’s casual outfits are working so well on her figure, and that you can apply this to your own wardrobe! Have a great week ❤
