Kim Kardashian is bad at fashion. There, we said it. There are occasions wherein she looks normal — well, relatively — but those are few and far between. Typically, she simply sets the bar for “bad.” Lo and behold, she has done it again. This time, it was by wearing the worst peplum I have ever seen.
Peplums, however popular they still manage to be and whatever runways they continue clinging to, are my least favorite trend. I think they are universally unflattering and always look stupid; they looked bad when they first became popularized in the early twentieth century and they look terrible now. I hate them, and I wish they would just go away. Unfortunately, people keep wearing them, and Kim has found yet another way to do it: peplum pants.
Not only are they the most unflattering piece of clothing I have ever seen with regard to structure, they are also satin. And patterned. They are the worst, and I am disgusted by the fact that people might somehow see peplum pants as a viable option to build upon. Fortunately, designers don’t care what Kim Kardashian is wearing and do not want her wearing their clothes anyway, so I have a feeling we are safe from this becoming a trend.
They also look uncomfortably tight. I’m by no means body snarking her, but I do think that these appear to be at least a size too small — particularly when you consider she’s pregnant and added pressure is likely not exactly enjoyable. Then again, as Huffington Post pointed out, she recently told Du Jour: “I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something, so I just have kind of learned to dress one way only.” And that way is poorly.
No matter, I am still pissed about this outfit. I am pissed at peplums, and I am pissed at whomever designed these hideous pants. Hrrrrmph.
