Kim Kardashian’s Bermuda shorts: fashion disaster or unexpectedly cute?


Yesterday, it was really hot here in Virginia. We had a little mini-heat wave, and it ended up being one of the hottest April 4ths on record. For the most part, I stayed in the air conditioning, but when I did venture out, I wore some flimsy grey sweatpants, a light white t-shirt, and my favorite turquoise flip-flops. I was very comfortable, because that was how I believe a person should dress when it’s hot. Thin, cotton fabrics, letting all of your sweaty parts breathe. This outfit that Kim Kardashian is wearing is not something I would suggest for ANYONE, especially when it’s warm (I just checked and Virginia was actually warmer than LA yesterday).

I suppose I get the idea of it – light blouse, longer shorts, and heels to make your legs look longer. The blouse is okay in and of itself. Not great, and actually… it looks pretty ‘80s and dated. I’m pretty sure it’s polyester too. Not good when it’s warm. As for the shorts… I believe they are “Bermudas” correct? Also popular in the 1980s, only to be overtaken in popularity by culottes. Also popular with moms – these are totally mom shorts. And they are totally and completely unflattering on Kim’s body. She’s a size 4, remember. And this is the first time that I’m convinced that I’m actually smaller than Kim, and I’m definitely not a size 4.

Finally, we come to the shoes. Just terrible. Maybe I would accept them with a cute dress, on a red carpet. But not with Bermudas and a poly-blend blouse. Oh, and guess where Kim was coming from? She just had some “hair” removed. That’s what Fame Pictures says! Brazilian, right? I bet her biscuits are hurting in those Bermudas. Ugh.

Overall, I’d say this outfit makes Kim look about 15 pounds heavier than what she actually is.

    You know who looks great in those shorts? My 16 year old daughter and all her tall skinny friends. Not 30 something women with hips- or any woman with hips. Kim dresses like a Jersey mall girl.

  2. Debra says:

    Kim looks great in everything.
    Lovely girl.

  3. wunderkindt says:

    She should pair those grandma shorts with some spanx.

  4. Quest says:

    This outfit only makes Kim look her natural size (which is difinitely not a 4)…I like the top but the whole thing…meh

    Fashionista???? Rigggghhhhhhttt….Size 4…..Riiiiggggtttt????

  5. louise says:

    The shorts make her look too hippy. Also her waist looks size 4 but her hips and butt would make her impossible to fit in a size 4.

  6. fancyamazon says:

    Could we have a temporary ban on Kardashians? Everyone gets dressed, and it seems to be this girl’s only skill! PLEASE?

  7. Hautie says:

    I wonder if Kim regrets purchasing the ass implants.

    She obviously already had her own natural curves. There was no need to get the ridiculous size ass implants.

    And there is no graceful way to remove them without it making the cover of OK! and ITW. I can see it now…

    “Ass Implants gone! Kim K. tells ALL!”

  8. Samigirl says:

    Yeah, this isn’t great. It is kind of…awful, actually.

  9. Vanessa says:

    ew. NOT a good look.

    There is no WAY she does not have ass implants [she has denied this right] There is NO way.

    That ass looks so uncomfortable and large…

  10. searching4grace says:

    She’s obviously not comfortable in those pants. Look how she’s got her hand in front of her stomach in the first picture. Those shoes look like torture devices for your toes, all crammed up against it. Ugh. This is not a flattering look for a woman with a beautiful body.

  11. LolaBella says:

    Disaster; the shirt and the shorts are unflattering on her.

    I can’t decide if I love or loathe those shoes.

  12. Darlene says:

    I say cute. Cute shoes too!

  13. malachais says:

    Who just walks down the street in 5 inch heels on a normal day?

  14. jemshoes says:

    Those shoes are about as cute (and comfortable) as jellies – which is to say they are NOT. :)

  15. Matt says:

    Good god what an awful outfit. I can only sign off on the sunglasses as they hide her jacked Kat-Eyez.

  16. Diane says:

    A cute top that wasn’t tucked in would have been better. Those shoes look painful, her little toe looks like it’s about to be sliced off.

  17. beth says:

    her shoes are ruining everything IMO

  18. DetRiotgirl says:

    I actually like the top. But, everything going on below her waist is a disaster.

  19. Miss Marie says:

    If I could recreate myself, I would be a podiatrist in Hollywood! Poor, suffering, women – all in the name of vanity.

  20. anne says:

    hideous shoes for such a casual outfit.

  21. kmn says:

    OMG SO BAD. WTF is she wearing?!

  22. Emma says:

    Bitch please. She is so not a size four. I’m a size four. Bitch is no size four.

  23. liz says:

    There is no way that woman did not get ass implants. I’m all about supporting each other as women and trying to diminish the impact of the media on our self-image, but those are ass implants.

  24. danielle says:

    I think the shorts are too high waisted.

  25. Marie says:

    Another person I am wishing into oblivion. (closing eyes and wishing)

  26. DeeVine says:

    I didn’t think bermudas could look good but the whole ensemble surprisingly works for her. Looks like she’s trying to start a new trend, like Katie Holmes and the whole boyfriend jeans thing.

  27. Cleo says:

    I’m sure if anyone saw Kim Kardashian in real life, they’d be thinking well of Armenia. More Armenians, please.

    It’s not what they (beautiful women) wear.

  28. Merijaan says:

    Baby toe sticking out, baby toe sticking out…..ewwwwww, just EWWWW!

  29. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Horrible! When you’re short, if you’re skinny, you can wear short shorts & they’ll make your legs look longer. Anything else makes you look stumpy. I say this as a short lady who has spent some summers in Daisy Dukes, some summers in jeans. But high-waisted Bermudas? They should be sold with a minimum height requirement of 5’9″ & a maximum weight of 110. Bermuda shorts are supposed to be worn by men.

  30. guesty says:


  31. serena says:

    Oh god.. the blouse is so horrible I have no words to describe it. And the bermudas are totally a NO.

    I like the shoes though.

  32. Dea says:

    fancyamazon: Thank you!!!!!!!!
    Next article about Kim we all make a deal: just comment “No” and nothing else. Hopefully it will work :)

  33. MikeyAngel says:

    Ok, so if Kim didn’t get implants then she must be getting lipo, right? It has to be nearly impossible to have such big boobs and a butt with that small a waist. Either that or she has fake boobs and a butt. I don’t know which, but definitely one of the two. She is curvy, and I am glad because she is a better representative for what many women actually look like compared to 99% of Hollywood, but her look isn’t God given.

  34. OXA says:

    K.K. always ooks like a hooker on her way to a John’s place. Who puts on full drag just to run errands in the middle of a heat wave.

  35. patty says:

    I go between a 4 and a 6, even on my fattest day I look anorxic next to that ass. Generally, I like her fashion sense, but she gets a “oh no you didnt”

  36. Crash2GO2 says:

    @fancyamazon: “Everyone gets dressed, and it seems to be this girl’s only skill!”


    It never ceases to amaze me how badly this woman dresses herself. And also what plastic surgeries she chooses to have to ASSentuate her natural figure. Stubby as all hell is how she looks in this ensemble.

  37. Franny says:

    just because all you bitches don’t have an ass or are curvy, doesn’t mean that she is all fake. i really don’t believe she has had ass implants. Look at Khloe, and even Kris. They all have an ass. I do believe that she has some things done to her face, but even then only fillers because 1. when has there been a time that she’s been out of the news for more than a week? (answer: none that any of us can remember) and 2. if you look at her old pictures, remove 15 pounds, the shitty tan and pile on makeup, I can see the difference. So fillers yes, major cat face surgery, probs not.

    But. she should not wear bermudas with those shoes that completely cut off her leg line. Nude heels would have been better – its the like the first rule of fashion.

  38. Delta Juliet says:

    I am co-signing everyone else who says no way is she a 4. I think she has a gorgeous figure, so I am not slamming her by any means. But I am her height, and a six, and I am quite a bit smaller than her.

  39. moi says:

    that looks like the MOST uncomfortable outfit ever, head to toe.

  40. Isabel says:

    Lord have mercy, this is just a horrible look. On ANYBODY. My Mom threw those shorts out in 1988 because she thought they were outdated.

  41. Jackie says:

    Where in Virginia are you? Greetings from Virginia Beach!

  42. Ashley says:

    U don’t go to your local 7/11 dressed like that

  43. GeekChic says:

    Those shoes look like high-heeled jelly shoes, another remnant from the ’80s.

  44. alexandra says:

    THE humanity, disaster, disastrous. This is an outfit I would have put together after a massive hangover.

  45. Tammi says:

    Ugh @ her face and attire.

  46. pamela maky says:

    she looks fab

  47. Ally says:

    I love how her pinky toe is busting out of its hole in the shoe. Freeeeedommmm!!!

  48. Tia says:

    Um, WTF??????? The pants look like something I wore in high school.. a friggin half century ago… did she really put on those pants, and think.. yeah, that loooooks gooood baby.. HA HAH BWAHHHHH HAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAA LAME!!!

  49. kazoo says:

    Gross. Her ass looks deformed. I remember Lisa Turtle wearing shirts like that on Saved by the Bell. Wasn’t cute then, isn’t cute now.

    And LOL @ her posing in the street.

  50. Isa says:

    I’ve been screaming all along that she isn’t a four. Sometimes I wonder if her waist is a four since it does seem to be thin, sometimes. But I’ve never saw a pair of pants that she could fit her ass in. I’m actually surprised she doesn’t have them custom made. They aren’t flattering because they’re high waisted. Which should be avoided by pretty much everyone that eats.

    I love bermuda shorts. They may make my legs look short, but I can’t wear capris. They look like I’m preparing for a flood.

    They’re also great for girls/women with long legs that have to wear a certain length, for school or such. With my short legs I had no problems buying shorts. But for my friend that was almost 6 foot and mostly legs it was very difficult.

    It was very cold where I live in the South. The wind was horrible.

  51. TeeTee says:

    she look like a stumpy soldier..

    her buns are fake, there have been soooo many pics of them down her thighs..saggy, there was one yesterday

    in a fitted dress, purple
    the bum did not exist, maybe her new victim doesn’t like bum..

    she’s such a people pleaser, LOL

    for the record, I am too short to wear any of those short pants, even if I wore 6 inch heels.
    I was going ot visit a friend and I passed by the mirror, I couldn’t beleive how stubby my legs looked..

    my friend said she thought I knew, LOL

  52. Kim says:

    Disaster and so unflattering hence why she is covering up her stomach pooch in the first pic.

    Shoes dont fit hence the pinky toe popping out. Girls if your little piggy pops out the shoes arent for your foot type.

    She wears way to much makeup. She looks like a tranny esp those hideous eyelashes! What are those things?

    Stage makeup during the day is never appropriate unless you are on stage-ha! You know the guys she dates must subtly hint for her to wear less makeup.

  53. Kim says:

    The simplest way to tell if any celeb has work done is look at pictures of them from past years. Kim did NOT have that ass 10 years ago, pictures are the proof. Just look at pics of her from high school. You do not grow that butt. Nor did she have that nose, those lips etc. Its really easy to tell if someone has had work done. I feel like people who cant see when celebs have obviously had work done are either stupid or very naive.

  54. truetalk says:

    love the outfit minus the shoes.

  55. Ari says:


  56. Jess says:

    DISASTA! But, I’ve made the same mistake before. Sometimes an outfit looks really good at home, and you don’t realize til later how bad it really looks!

  57. Madam U says:

    Mom shorts

  58. Victoire says:

    She looks fat =) That’s all

  59. Mandy says:


    just uuughh….

  60. bianca says:

    ewwwww!! hate the outfit – love the shoes (probably because I own similar ones :P )

  61. Amanda G says:

    That whole look is so wrong. Anything high waisted looks bad on any body type IMO.

    The only reason I think her ass is fake is her thighs are too small. Most big assed woman (including myself) have big thighs too. I.E. J.Lo, Beyonce, Shakira.

  62. Myra says:

    She looks awful in that last pic. Maybe the outfit would have looked good on someone skinnier.

  63. CeeCee says:

    @fancyamazon = best idea of 2011. A month of no Kardashian news!!

  64. april says:

    the shirt tucked into the shorts looks ugly, and i dont like the high waist. bermuda shorts would look nice on her if maybe they were jeans and not high waisted.

  65. PrettyLights says:

    She looks terrible. I have a similar figure and would never be caught dead in bermuda shorts. And her butt implants are SO obvious in this photo…that is just WHACK.

    That said, why do you keep up with these damn Karcrapians posts, like 1 every day? Is it really necessary, especially considering that you yourselves seem to dislike them just as much as the rest of us… maybe if we ignore them, they will finally go away.

  66. sarah says:

    First of all, there is no way her ass is real. Its too big to be real, and her pictures from younger days show ample derriere, but not that ridiculous, unnatural size. Also, what the hell is that shirt? Is that a sheer green blouse with a green tank, or is that a shirt with the image of a tank below it? You know, like when kids wear the tuxedo t-shirts. Please tell me its the second.
    She’s gross- do you think one day she’ll wake up and be like, “I really miss my original face?”

  67. cprincess says:

    Do these useless moron Kardasians ever go out without 55ilbs of make up on and that outfit is terrible on her..
    when is these fame ho’s 15 minutes up?

  68. Paige says:

    why would anyone want ass implants???? and secondly those shorts are wrong

  69. Caz says:

    Articles about the Kartrashians means there’s less room for boring articles on “poor old sad” Jennifer Aniston. Seriously, what’s there left to say about her? I’d rather a Jen-free zone than a Kartrashian-free one.

  70. LadyBert62 says:

    Mamma Mia! Those clothes are hideous and they make her rear look HUGH! (As if it wasnt already!) The entire outfit screams “Help, help, I need somebody to dress me please!”

    And those shoes – I find it difficult to believe she walked 12 steps in them without screaming in pain!
