The Fascinating Evolution Of The Kardashians’ Style

Kardashian Family

The Kardashians are one of America’s most famous families, and we have had the pleasure of watching them on screen for almost ten years.

Now they dominate social media, and are constantly trending in the news. Each of them brings a unique personality to the group, and as a family they all rule the fashion world.

Watching them for so long, it can be hard to see the small differences, but they have no doubt evolved immensely in their style throughout their years.

From hoop earrings to clear stilettos, here are twenty different ways the Kardashians’ style has evolved throughout the years.

One of the earliest public images of the Kardashian crew, it’s very apparent their style has evolved throughout the years. Before Kim’s scandalous adult tape was released, it’s almost as if she doesn’t care about her style at all! This photo screams 90s, but it’s nice to see the family wearing barely any makeup and clothing that probably didn’t cost them a fortune.

In just a few years time, their style had changed dramatically, as seen in the next picture.

In the beginning, most of the family wasn’t well-known in the reality TV world besides Kim Kardashian. She started as Paris Hilton’s sidekick but quickly became the main character of her own reality show, which just happened to feature the rest of the family as a supporting cast. Kendall and Kylie were also still preteens, so they were still often seen wearing clothes you’d find in the kid’s section.

One common subject among the first popular pics of the family was the appearance of Rob. He was known as a handsome and very eligible bachelor, and the only male of the Kardashian clan. Over the years, Rob has appeared at fewer and fewer events, as he battled depression and weight issues for a while.

You won’t believe how Kylie and Kendall have changed from the next picture.

After Khloé’s marriage to Lamar Odom, he began appearing with the family more often and became a more important character on the series as well. Kendall and Kylie’s maturity was also in the public eye and were seen wearing more adult and revealing clothes throughout the years as well.

The Kardashians were known in the earlier years for their big, long, black hair, and they weren’t afraid to show it off in this pic! They also loved bold and tacky accessories, as seen on the dresses of the girls and Kris’ earrings. Kris also wasn’t afraid to show off a lot of skin and wear bright bold colors to keep the attention on her as well! I wonder what she’d think of this bright pink dress now.

Another thing the Kardashians loved wearing? Animal prints and sparkles. It wasn’t uncommon to see the Kardashians wearing tight-fitting and sparkly dresses, especially while socializing in the night scene of LA among other popular celebs. Another one of their favorite accessories was their current dates! Wait until you see how different their hair is in the next picture!

In this image, it seems the Kardashians have started growing away from the glam and more into subtle, neutral colors. Kendall and Kylie definitely aren’t afraid to rock tall heels either! They are seen wearing nude colored shoes as well, a popular style that they still often wear today. Although they’re all still rocking big and clunky accessories here, something they haven’t stuck with in recent times.

One thing you don’t see as often today is the girls smiling. At the award show here, the three Kardashian girls aren’t afraid to show off their smirks and pearly whites. As they gained popularity, they also gained critics and haters, which caused the girls to have more closed-off and serious personalities.

The Kardashians have seemed to ditch the sparkles and replaced that look with leather! It wasn’t uncommon for the Kardashians to match, and it’s a theme they still stick to today! Khloé also shows the first signs of their evolutionary hair, as it was increasingly rare in the past years to see the Kardashians with hair other than long black locks!

The Kardashians love their animal print, though they’ve stuck to less flashy clothes. Kourtney is rocking a pantsuit, only revealing a little cleavage. Khloé is wearing a much more professional outfit, but not afraid to add some leopard splash. Kim is keeping it very classy in lace, though still flashing her bra underneath the see-through pattern.

Throughout the years, Kim has developed a much sleeker style, as seen here with slicked-back hair. Kylie and Kendall are still keeping it sweet, though they’ve definitely outgrown their childish style. Although Kim’s style is definitely evolving, she’s not afraid to have sport some bling, as seen in the flashy rhinestones on her dress.

It seems her sisters have caught on to Kim’s sleek style as they’ve decided to slick back their hair as well. They’re also all not afraid to show off their figures in short form-fitting cocktail dresses. A much more fashion-forward look, Kim still doesn’t seem ready to leave the animal print behind! The constant evolution of the Kardashian clan is a guarantee we can always count on.

Rob still seems to be around, though his appearances are dwindling, and his once big smile has turned into a small smirk. Scott seems to be making more appearances as well, as his family with Kourtney grows. Kendall and Kylie are definitely showing a sexier side to their teen selves as well. With all the changes, Kris and Kim still aren’t afraid to rock the leopard and sparkle!

Kim left behind her old style and is keeping it very classy in her all-black outfit and slicked back ponytail. But when one Kardashian leaves a look, the others seem to pick it up. Kourtney isn’t afraid to flaunt all leopard and red lips. Kylie and Kendall are also keeping it light and summery in bright, bold colors.

Kourtney was one of the first to make drastic hair changes, as she chopped off her hair into layered bangs. And Kim has transitioned to fully sleek and stylish, wearing a lot of single colors and more fashionable dress styles. Khloé isn’t quite ready to leave her old style behind, however, and still rocks a brightly colored leopard print skirt.

The girls all seem to be adopting Kim’s more fashion-minded look. A lot of the changes are due to her relationship with Kanye West, who is very conscious of being trendy when it comes to fashion. Kim also is seen rocking the high waist and cropped top, a style that gained popularity in the family’s later years and is definitely a trend often attributed to the Kardashian clan.

Kylie and Kendall have made their full transition into adults and aren’t afraid to show off their sexy side. Kylie also flaunts her big lips and isn’t afraid of the lip injection rumors anymore, and actually embraces them. Khloé has also left her black haired roots behind and rocks blonde locks now. As new mothers, Kim and Kourtney keep it simple and classy with their black haired middle parts, not nearly as big as the hair they used to rock.

The Kardashian crew can’t seem to stay out of the limelight, especially when Caitlin began her transition. Kendall and Kylie are no longer little girls, but still keep it conservative for the family photo. Though their transition has changed immensely, the girls still enjoy rocking long locks. This feels more like a classic Kardashian family photo with laid-back clothing that doesn’t scream of high-fashion style choices.

Even throughout her pregnancies, Kim kept it sleek and classy in all black and slicked-back hair. All of the Kardashians seemed to have ditched any flashy patterns and chunky accessories with the exception of Kris, who isn’t afraid to flaunt giant earrings. The Kardashians are definitely totally different today than their first photos.

Though their style has changed immensely, the Kardashians aren’t afraid to throwback to some of their very first popular styles. In support of Kanye’s fashion show, the Kardashians rocked an enormous amount of bling. They also aren’t afraid to wear pounds of animal fur. It’s definitely different than their very first style, however, they keep a few similar aspects around and probably won’t be changing that anytime soon.
