Kylie Jenner’s Style Isn’t As ‘Unique’ As It Seems — Here’s What Fans Have Noticed

Kylie Jenner is one of the most famous women in the world, with a billion-dollar cosmetics company and a host of other projects in the works. On top of it all, Jenner still actively films Keeping Up with the Kardashians and raises her young daughter, Stormi Webster.

She has a massive social media following as well, with millions of fans who eagerly follow her every move. Although Jenner is considered to be a style icon, some fans on Reddit recently broke down her style, and why she might not be as original as some believe.

When Kylie Jenner first burst onto the scene, she was a fresh-faced ten-year-old. As the years went on, Jenner’s look began to evolve. She went through several hair colors and wore a lot of punk-rock clothing before settling on a look that was decidedly more mature. These days, Jenner is known for her skintight outfits and her habit of showing a lot of skin on Instagram.

Jenner is only twenty-two years old but often dresses like someone much older than that. Her sexy style, combined with the fact that she is almost always pictured with a full face of makeup (contour and all), means that Jenner is considered to be a fashion icon. Still, more than a few people have pointed out that Kylie Jenner copied many elements of her signature style from one person who is very close to her.

Did Kylie Jenner copy Kim Kardashian’s style?

Kim Kardashian is over fifteen years older than her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, but the two are clearly very close. The whole family lives in the same general neighborhood and is known to spend a great deal of time together.

Kim Kardashian, one of the most popular members of the famous family, is one of the original purveyors of super-sexy style and has been rocking scandalous outfits long before Kylie Jenner became a teenager.

Several years ago, Jenner started changing up her style, beginning to favor leather pants and skintight tops. Many people pointed out that certain of her looks resembled outfits that Kim Kardashian wore.

It didn’t stop at her clothing, either — in several artfully posed shots, Jenner wore her hair in exactly the same manner as her older sister, prompting some critics to accuse her of directly copying Kardashian.

For Kylie Jenner, copying other people’s style seems to be a pattern. As some users on Reddit recently pointed out, Jenner has a habit of taking a trend that is growing in popularity and running with it, causing it to become even more popular as a result.

In fact, some critics stated that Jenner’s style can best be described as “insta influencer” and that she doesn’t even have a defined style, she just wears whatever will help her to fit in.

Certainly, Jenner has come under fire for copying people outside of her family circle before. Most notably, she was slammed for patterning her 2015 style after a woman named Heather Sanders, a friend of Tyga’s. Jenner even cut and dyed her hair in the exact same style as Sanders, almost immediately after the stylish older woman debuted the look on social media.

Multiple social media users caught on, and called Jenner out via Twitter, saying that she wanted to be Heather Sanders “so bad.”

No matter how Jenner herself defines her personal style, it is clear that the clothes she wears have the power to influence fashion trends – as evidenced by the sheer number of women on Instagram trying to copy her look.
