Kim Kardashian and new beau, Kanye West have wasted no time in taking their relationship very public nor have they been shy about showing off their fashion forward tastes. Kim, always a big fan of low cut tops and tight outfits has been made over by Kanye who favors more classic lines. The couple have also been seen out in color coordinating outfits more than a time or two. Dressing like them might seem to be a complete fantasy, but you should know that there are ways to recreate some of the Kim and Kanye looks, even on a tight budget.
Be Realistic With What You Have to Work With
It is the rare woman that is built like Kim Kardashian. It is the even rarer woman who is built like Kim and has the good fortune to find a man who enjoys fashionable clothing and has an eye for color and fabric combos. Just because a dress looks really good on Kim does not mean it will suit you as well. Before you rush out to spend hundreds on a dress that is not going to do you any justice, consider your body type and your coloring. You can emulate some of Kim’s styles, even if you are the direct opposite of her body wise.
On a recent trip to Italy, Kim and Kanye both reportedly changed their clothing during a meal. On many occasions, they have been sporting the same or similar colors. If you and your mate would like to dress alike, it is important to come to some agreement about which colors are acceptable to both of you and which are not. Kim Kardashian favors bolder colors as well as bright, crisp white. She has the strong coloring that allows her to carry these choices very well, though and fairer women might be overpowered by colors like emerald green or bright fuschia.

Kanye West likes a lot of classic black but also has worn a lot of outfits in oatmeal and deep, chocolate brown. Again, these are power colors that might be overwhelming or intimidating to some men. Instead of wearing an entire outfit that matches, you might choose to wear just one or two pieces that are complementary.
Budget Friendly Looks That Mimic Designer Wear
Instead of trying to match Kanye West label to label, there are some fashion outfits that will allow you to dress well for half the price. Buying a few great suits and jackets from a place like Brooks Brothers is a better bet than scouring the marketplace for a single designer item. Well made suits that are tailored to fit you are more important than what label is stitched inside of them. Only people on the red carpet are asked about who they are wearing so that should not matter to you, especially if it means saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars. If you want, you can splurge on a few designer, silk ties to go with your wonderful new suits.
But remember, staying within your budget doesn’t mean you can’t dress like your idols. You just have to know where to find those deals.
