The youngest sibling of team Kardashian (aka Jenner) has grown into a style icon overnight! We take inspiration from her closet to find all the Instagram-worthy “it girl” summer must-haves.

Until recently, Kylie Jenner was treated by the media like the poor little step sister of the camera-ready clan. Big sis Kim is infamously married to Kanye and preggers again, getting nonstop paparazzi attention. Kendall has become a muse for Karl Lagerfeld, bestie of beauties like Cara Delevigne, and one of the most in-demand models of the world. And Kylie, well Kylie is quickly becoming a household name in the fickle fashion world, racking up major style points. We love how she combines high end (check out her hot new Balmain campaign), low-key (baseball hats) and trendy hipster (blue mermaid hair) like a true fashionista. As she said to People magazine of her ever-changing style: “I’m like punk one month, ghetto fab the next, classy the next,” adding: “I’m just young and finding out who I am.” Makes sense for a 17-year-old!

Here are our top six Kylie Jenner-inspired summer looks.

Hot in Black: The Sexy Monokini

Bikini and one-piece styles have a huge range this summer, from vintage-y crocheted triangles to trendy neoprene. Kylie goes for a super sexy Agent Provocateur Dakota Swimsuit in classic black. It’s ideal for curves and actually super flattering even if you haven’t gone under the knife. She rocked a similar monokini in a recent photo shoot with Neave Bozorgi. Be a vixen in the water or poolside in ever elegant black!

The White Jumpsuit

Out of her many varied looks, we think the clean, sexy white jumpsuit is a perfect summer get-up. White looks amazing against sun-kissed skin, and the jumpsuit is still going strong as a trend while it is timelessly elegant at the same time. It’s a breezy look for sizzling nights!

The Baseball Hat

As is evident from her Instagram account and Coachella appearance, Kylie loves baseball hats. They are super trendy right now and Kylie clearly adores them. When choosing this jock style, be sure to stick to a solid color or even leather and avoid cheesy slogans to keep things classy. It’s a great cover up choice to stay cool in the sun – especially if you’re tired of floppy boho chic hats! See the satin options at Urban Outfitters.

Statement Nails and Rings

We seriously covet Kylie’s ever-changing statement nails. Whether a creamy white, a cool hair-matching pale aqua or a neon yellow, they always look fab (albeit a bit impractical). We adore how she combines them with playful on-trend gold rings. It’s a look you can easily recreate even with press-ons and inexpensive jewels

A Long Glittery Party Dress

Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing has launched an #instafamous fall 2015 campaign with Kylie and Kendall donning stunning gowns by the famed French couture house. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, it celebrates the “unique and unconditional love of siblings.” We love seeing Kylie in a floor length gown, a perfect style for a chic party in the Hollywood hills or an art opening! Yes, Balmain isn’t a realistic price point for most of us, but a glittery, long dress (check is a perfect and refreshing change from all the omnipresent super minis! Just dare it!

California Casual Crop Tops

On the more casual end of the spectrum Kylie and sis Kendall, who were born and raised in SoCal, have worked with Pacific Sunwear of California to create an affordable collection including asymmetrical skirts, must-have crop tops, Panama Hats and more. Kylie loves a crop top and it’s an easy choice to pair in a million ways, from cut offs to skirts to shredded denim.
