See our picks to get Kim Kardashian’s signature bombshell style.

First we found the BurdaStyle patterns to get Taylor Swift’s girly style, then we tried Cameron Diaz’s California glam. Today, we’re showing you how to get Kim Kardashian’s glamorous, curvacious look. Her curves are world famous, and she knows how to dress them! Flaunt what you’ve got in figure conscious dresses and separates.

Kim Kardashian style body con
Strapless Mini Dress, Scoop Neck Top, Gathered Little Black Dress

If you have a curvy hourglass silhouette like Kim’s, don’t hide it! Show off those curves in a bandage dress, modern Hollywood style. The Gathered Little Black Dress is versatile in stretch jersey. The Strapless Mini Dress is a little bolder, with a micro mini hem and bustier style neckline. Curve hugging tops work, too. Try the Scoop Neck Top in black stretch jersey with your favorite tight pants.

Kim Kardashian style evening
Satin Bustier, Satin Pencil Skirt, Slitted Gown, Slit Skirt

Kim Kardashian’s 2013 Met Gala dress was a fashion risk that didn’t pay off. This year, she stunned on the red carpet in classic satin with a strapless bodice and thigh high slit. Copycat Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala look in dresses like the Strapless Gown, Slitted Gown, or Slit Skirt both complete with Kim-approved leg slit. Kim loves satiny fabrics on and off the carpet, so try the Satin Bustier and Satin Pencil Skirt with a blazer.

Kim Kardashian style sheer
Chiffon Blouse, Pencil Skirt with Exposed Zipper, Sheer Sleeve Animal Print Top, Sheer Sleeve Animal Print Top

A revealing sheer top is balanced with a tea length mermaid skirt in this sexy outfit. Chiffon tops like the Chiffon Blouse, Sheer Ruffled Blouse, Wrap Blouse, and plus size Sheer Sleeve Animal Print Top let you choose how much skin to show. Just slip on a cami for more coverage, or wear a matching bra underneath for the full Kim look. Pair them with the bootylicious Pencil Skirt with Exposed Zipper Make it less over the top by pairing the sheer top with jeans, or the tight skirt with a slouchy tank.

Kim Kardashian style crop top
Leather Top, Stretch Pencil Skirt, Skirt with Ribbon Waistband

Our last look to steal is Kim’s outfit at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. She’s covered from wrist to knee and still sexy! All it takes is a splash of faux leather or animal print (or both) to kick up the bombshell factor. Her skirt has contrast edges like the Skirt with Ribbon Waistband, and we also like the Stretch Pencil Skirt. Neon is just as eye grabbing as animal print! Copy the rest with the Leather Top or any long sleeved crop top.

Kim Kardashian has made looking good a full time job and helped bring a curvy silhouette back in fashion. Love or hate her, America’s favorite tabloid fodder knows how to dress her body.

    Kardashian? Are you kidding? I used to think Burda was a place to go for interesting patterns and I have been marking several to download but I think I need to look elsewhere. Anybody have recommendations?

    Kim Kardashian? Seriously? Not for me. She is beautiful, but her style doesn’t appeal to me at all, and celebrity versus talent or achievements isn’t something I find admirable in and of itself. I do agree with the other commenters, though, couldn’t you have found pics where her clothes fit her properly & were flattering?

    I must agree with all of the above. Kim, looks like a little girl playing dress up. She has the connections and resources to have an image consultant. The skirt is hideous ( the print), is there still such a thing as after 5 wear, she can show off her curves without being tacky. To each her own of course.

    Really? She’s very good looking but not really stylish, even accounting for differences in taste.

    But maybe it’s just that we have different ideas of what style is. Here are some women I think are stylish: Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Ulyana Sergeenko, Zooey Deschanel, Solange Knowles, Janelle Monae, Linda Rodin, Florence Welch

    Those are just a few off the top of my head. Most of them have a style that doesn’t work for me personally, but I am in awe of how amazing they look. A few of them are so perfectly compatible with how I look that I regularly crib from them.

    Or is this about body type? I can see that if you had an hourglass body shape Kim would be a good place to maybe find some inspiration from. I personally think that as hourglasses go, Christina Hendricks’s style evolution is pretty interesting. She’s spoken about how being costumed by Janie Bryant has helped her get a much clearer idea of her own personal style. I have to say, Hendricks looks great even pairing a pair of dark denim, striped shirt, & colorful sweater. Salma Hayek is an hourglass who always looks good. She’s petite as well (5"2") which has its own challenges, but she never looks overwhelmed by her clothes.

    her clothes don’t seem to actually fit her. isn’t she like super famous and rich or something? you’d think she could afford a better tailor. she looks trashy and kind of .. stuffed into things. maybe okay for a club, but my god that gown looks terrible on her.

    and that ridiculously tacky skirt (last)… sweet baby jesus.

      Truly, I don’t think that skirt could have a less flattering print placement if they were actually TRYING to make her look unappealing!

    Kim is a fashion icon, if poor taste can be considered iconic. Super sexy isn’t always appropriate and she doesn’t seem to know where to draw the line. The funds at her disposal for her wardrobe could, in my opinion, be better used. But that’s just me……:-)))
