Move over Kim, Kourtney and Khloe: The next generation of Kardashian spawn is taking over the fashion world by storm. At 16 and 17 years of age, respectively, Kylie and Kendall Jenner may be young, but they have accomplished more than their fair share of work in the fashion realm.

The Jenner sisters are no strangers to the fashion world. Kendall Jenner signed with Wilhelmina Models at age 14, previously modeled for Forever 21 and currently models for renowned photographer Russell James’ newest project, “Nomad: Two Worlds. The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie, has modeled for Teen Vogue and was named a Seventeen Magazine brand ambassador in 2011 along with her sister Kendall. The dynamic duo recently released a clothing line in PacSun stores worldwide as well.

In terms of style, their look can best be described as trendy and sophisticated, yet youthful. They have mentioned that their older sisters have a heavy influence on their style and that they often trade and borrow each other’s clothes. The eccentric and polished “SoCal” vibe of the Jenner girls’ look can be duplicated and reinvented by young fashionistas around the world – even those who aren’t on a Kardashian budget.

To begin, Kendall is an avid wearer of chic, simple black-and-white clothing. She has been spotted wearing slimming, fitted black trousers with a matching blazer and trendy crop top to give the look an edge. These are basic staples in many women’s wardrobes due to their versatility. If you’re a fan of this look, try Forever 21’s “Paneled Dress Pants,” which go for $24.80, and H&M’s “Short Blazer,” which sells for $24.95 (currently on sale for $9.95). Add a band tee or graphic top for Kendall’s edgy look. She is also a fan of the trendy sneaker wedge. Aldo sells a black leather pair that Kendall would don any day: The “Cummings” shoe, which is on sale for the lofty price of $74.98.

Kylie has been deemed the “girlier” of the two, often rocking skirts, blouses and flowing frocks. She balances out these innocent pieces, however, with bold combat boots or statement heels. Budget-friendly dresses and skirts can be found at online stores such as ModCloth and Nastygal. ModCloth’s “Mod for Each Other Dress” practically screams Kylie, and for $52.99, will make you (and your wallet) smile. Pair the floral sundress with Nastygal’s quirky “Eastside Combat Boot,” reasonably priced at $68.

The two girls have also been spotted wearing clothing designed by trendy Italy-based designer Brandy Melville. They are fans of Melville’s graphic crop tops, which go for around $20 a pop, and their pricier chunky knit cardigans, which range anywhere from $40 to $70. Brandy Melville stores can be found in Los Angeles, New York and Boston, and are constantly being refreshed with new inventory.

Both girls love to pile on the rings as well. Kendall and Kylie mix and match different styles of rings and stack them together to add more of a punk-inspired edge to their polished looks. Statement and stackable rings that would be Jenner-approved and won’t break the bank can be found in stores like Brandy Melville, Forever 21 and on Nastygal.com.

If you are in search of extra tips, there are countless blogs on Tumblr dedicated solely to the fashion of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The blogs’ maintainers hunt online daily to find the exact articles of clothing and accessories seen on the Jenner sisters, and in the instance that they can’t scope out a particular item, post look-alike items. Some of these Tumblr blogs include “kendallandkyliejennerlove,” “kendallkyliejstyle” and “kendallandkyliescloset.”
