We may be lacking in the curvy department but it doesn’t mean we can’t wear denim tops and look sexy like Kim Kardashian. Already, the new mom has once again garnered the allure of the press when she was spotted out and about in Saint Germain during Paris Fashion week, wearing a button-down denim shirt, with her best assets on the forefront.
But don’t trash your denim tops in frustration just yet. We found 3 easy ways to wear your denim top, using basic pieces from your own wardrobe. And we promise, it’s just as fabulous as Kim Kardashian.
1. Light Denim Top + Grey Cardi = Preppy Dream
If your denim top features a light-colored wash, pair it up with a light-colored cardigan like grey or pastels to gain a preppy look. Lace-up ankle booties make it very utilitarian while silver bangle balances it out with simple daintiness.

2. Tough Denim Top + Pointy Toe Bootie = Chic Cowgirl
If you have one of those very dark denim tops with bronze or antique-finish buttons, wearing it with skinny jeans and a sleek, pointy-toed bootie (we know you have one) will immediately modernize your look. You can wear it closed or open over a plain white tee. A long, silver necklace with a nice distinguishable pendant will finish it off perfectly.

3. Solid Blue Denim Top + Scarf = Casual Hipster
If you happen to have the same solid blue denim top like Kim K’s then by all means avoid doing a copycat (save the pink overcoat for another day) and instead go for a tasseled infinity scarf for a fashionable everyday look. Tasseled booties with chunky heels are also a nice touch.
