The Year of Kendall Jenner

In terms of fashion phenomenons, the year 2014 has Kendall Jenner stylishly written all over it. Emerging from the shadows of her older sisters and crazy momager Kris -who have no less tried just about ev.ery.thing to place themselves top of the style stakes- Miss Jenner has undoubtedly emerged as one of the industries most iconic and influential figures this year; and perhaps the only Jenner/Kardashian really worth keeping up with...

Her fashion trajectory has been nothing short of fabulous these past twelve months; walking her way down some of fashion week’s most iconic runway shows from Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs, Giles Deacon and Diane von Furstenberg to Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana Kendall has jetted from one fashion capital to the next, collecting famous friends and mentors, not to mention wearing one enviably voguish outfit after the other.

Fresh, chic, young and effortlessly gracious in her down time, Kendall’s personal style exemplifies this year's most fabulous (yet equally annoying) celebrity motto: I woke up like this.

From daytime chic to red carpet glory though, Kendall's style is ever fluent and smart; she recycles her favourite pieces and isn’t afraid to stick to what she knows works for her. Whether she's bringing together the ease of an all black outfit or teaming some sexiness with simplicity (a favourite and artful combination), she never fails to sweep us off our feet and fall in love little more with her everyday style.

Her most crucial and style shaping secret though? Focusing on key pieces that last forever and not making too much of a fuss! For in finding crucial wardrobe staples such as a great pair of boots, damn hot leather leggings, a cute cross body, a little white tee and a classic trilby, the foundations of a wardrobe are formed from which any trend can be tastefully added. It’s that classic with a twist vibe and she does it to perfection.
