It's been a wild year for the Kardashians. Between babies, marriages, breakups, and runway- takeovers, we've hardly been able to keep up. The most noteworthy element of 2014? Their style.
We're not talking nude dresses on the red carpet here. (Although the Kardashian-Jenner clan certainly had their moments.) It's the everyday style that has us saluting the royal family of reality TV. Honestly, we'd be lying if we said we didn't cop one or two Kendall-off-duty ensembles this year. We're wearing her signature tee, jeans, and booties combo right now, actually.
To celebrate a solid fashion year for Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie, we're highlighting the Kardash-fash (is that a thing?) that surprised us most in the last 12 months, highlighting two outfits from each sister. Click through to see if one of your favorites made the cut.

Being a mom doesn’t stop Kourtney from dressing up, and this year she continued to perfect her classics-with-a-twist vibe. While in Paris last May, she paired a ladylike, polka-dot midi-skirt with a (subtly) sexy crop top and a tough-girl moto jacket.

BLQ Basiq Crop Top in White, $64.99, available at Boutique to You; ASOS Spot Pleat Midi Skirt, $32.22, available at ASOS; Saint Laurent Classic Motorcycle Jacket in Black Leather, $5290, available at Saint Laurent; Givenchy Mini Antigona Duffel, $1875, available at Barneys New York.

Keeping track of kids while on vacation is no easy feat. Yet, Kourtney does it in phenomenal style. While in Paris for a certain family affair, she sparkled on a day out with her family in a bedazzled H&M coat.

H&M Beaded Coat, $129, available at H&M; Alice + Olivia Front-Zip Leather Legging, $798, available at Saks Fifth Avenue; Saint Laurent Wyatt 40 Ankle Boots, $867.22, available at Farfetch.

Of all the Kardashians, Kim has probably had the most drastic style evolution. Her closet now reads like a Paris Fashion Week runway.

Kim knows a thing or two about mixing high and low fashion. She repped her family’s namesake brand while out in London this year, donning a Kardashian Kollection Lipsy jumpsuit with a vintage YSL clutch and Tom Ford booties.

If you felt pressure to dress up for your family function, imagine primping for a Kardashian get-together. For Kourtney’s baby shower, Kim showed up in an all-black ensemble. At the heart of the monochromatic look was a Lanvin blazer — certainly a step up from the LBD we've worn three years in a row.

Khloé’s airport style is much stronger than ours, but when you boil it down, it’s the same staples we wear when we’re in transit — a knit sweater, leggings, and oversized sunglasses. The difference is that Khloé plays up key pieces, so she’s picture-perfect upon landing. With an A.L.C. pullover, leather leggings, and reflective Victoria Beckham aviators, this reality star can go straight to meetings, shoots, and filming new episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians without an outfit change.

A.L.C. Torrey Sweater, $297, available at Shopbop; J Brand Lambskin Leather Leggings, $850, available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Khloé is an expert at making the simplest outfit look sophisticated and high-concept. Instead of wearing distressed jeans and a tee while filmingKeeping Up with the Kardashians, she simply threw on a floor-sweeping, lightweight duster and added a few smart add-ons. BAM! A fully-styled getup.

Kendall Jenner has been appearing regularly on television since 2007, has walked highly publicized runways as a rookie model, and has already dropped her last name professionally. But, in some ways, she’s just like us. At first glance, the list of common traits may seem short, but Kendall shops at H&M and Zara, too. She accents her otherwise Givenchy- and Balmain-clad wardrobe with more affordable pieces.

H&M Wool-blend Turtleneck Sweater, $79.95, available at H&M; Zara Studio Loose-Fit Long Blazer, $169, available at Zara; Balmain Off-White and Black Leather and Fabric Pierre Bag, $1890, available at Editorialist.

When you’ve got legs for days, you should flaunt them, and that’s exactly what Kendall did during a night out at the theater by wearing an angled skirt from Sass & Bide.

Taylor Swift, watch out! You’re not the only starlet with a penchant for matching sets. Kylie stepped out this summer in an Alexander Wang T-shirt-and-shorts combo, providing an edgier take on Swift’s signature look.

Ray-Ban Metal Framed Sunglasses, $158.17, available at Farfetch; Alexander Wang Boxy Pinstriped Tee, $346.50, available at La Garçonne; Alexander Wang Wool Shorts, $373, available at mytheresa.

Kylie knows that comfortable footwear is a must when chopping down a Christmas tree, but she doesn’t just slip into a pair of beat-up trainers. The youngest sister sported a colorful pair of Pumas from the Solange Knowles collection, proving that’s she’s much cooler than we were at age 17.

J Brand 8226 Photo Ready Cropped Skinny, $227, available at J Brand; Solange x Puma Trinomic Triangles Trainers, $180, available at Farfetch.
