The Style Evolution of Kendall and Kylie Jenner

It’s hard to believe that Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered only four years ago, in 2007. Before the show, few people had heard of the now-famous clan and we certainly weren’t inundated with Kardashian news on a daily basis. Kim was the original star of the show, but that fame quickly trickled down the family tree to the youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

In a recent TeenVogue interview, Kendall remarked on her initial reaction to having her life filmed, “I’ve always been a shy person, so all the attention around my family was weird in the beginning. But we’ve come out of our shells, and now it’s cool for people to see how we’ve grown.”

Not only have the sisters matured as individuals, they’ve each developed their own unique fashion sense. Today, Kendall and Kylie’s styles influence millions of fans and fashion devotees.  Kendall, 16, has a more feminine style than 14-year old Kylie who likes to give her ensembles an edgy feel. Kendall tends to opt for flowy fabrics and soft colors, especially when it comes to her formal wear. Kylie is often photographed rocking her signature leather jacket and leans toward dark colors and sharper lines.  True California girls, both Kendall and Kylie like to relax in laid-back jeans, tanks, retro sunglasses, and sandals.

These clearly defined looks weren’t always the case; see their style evolution from unassuming, adorable young girls to total fashionistas.
