Kylie Jenner is one of the most popular social media influencers of our time. You might know her from "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," or from seeing her cosmetics company Kylie Cosmetics all over Instagram and YouTube. Kylie has also been labeled as somewhat of a style icon for millennials as she embraces her curvy figure with form fitting, sexy clothing. While Kylie has access to many luxury brands, you don't need thousands of dollars to get her look for yourself. Here are several alternatives more suitable for someone on a budget!

1. Street Style

Kylie really know how to give all of her day-to-day looks a sexy element. A slim bodysuit and hip hop style trousers make for a very sporty vibe, but she decided to finish the look with a neon green heels from Balenciaga and one of her Birkin bags. Here's how to rock the sporty yet sexy look for yourself.

2. Work Apparel

For this look, Kylie has styled an extra long blazer with a pair of tight bermuda short,s and use a waist bag as a belt. If your office allows more work apparel alternatives, try your own version for an exciting upgrade of your typical day at the office.

3. Punk Rock Chic

This is an expensive look that is very achievable without having to splurge on any luxury brand items. A black jacket, short leather skirt and basic white tank top will do the trick. Style it with your favorite accessories, some fierce make-up and you're going to rock it!

4. Night Out

Kylie obviously loves latex material, and we don't have any problem with that. This dress complements her figure and her hair color makes the look even more memorable.

Graduate in Style with These 8 Outfits

Con-GRAD-ulations, you've finally made it! All those late-night study sessions, early morning classes, and marathons at the library have finally paid off and it's time put on that cap and gown. The dress code for a commencement ceremony is definitely a lot different from typical student attire (which probably consists of more sweatpants and sneakers than you'd like to admit), so coming up with the right outfit to wear for your big day might be a bit of a challenge. If you're debating on what to wear, we've got you with this round-up of 8 graduation outfits that capture 4 different styles you can wear to properly celebrate finishing school!

Fancy Looks

Win graduation with these fancier looks! This red dress not only goes well with a graduation gown, but will also make you a standout with its gorgeous arm detailing. You'll also be turning some heads with this black dress, thanks to the added white sash that accents and flatters the waist.

Classy Looks

These two outfits are definitely keepin' it classy without overdoing it. White is definitely a graduation go-to, but cute lacy patterns will definitely keep you standing out in the crowd. You can also never go wrong with florals, like this sleeveless dress that is as cute as it is stylish. Pair with some accessories and comfortable (but still dressy!) shoes, and you're all set.

Mature Looks

Planning on a less traditional look that doesn't involve a skirt or dress? A cute yet comfortable two-piece suit might do the trick, like this G.Shero set. Or, go smart casual with a sleeveless blouse and straight trousers. Finish it off with a pair of cute flats for maximum comfort, or your favorite heels.

Girly Looks

Want to pull off something on the girlier side? Go bohemian chic with this light and flowy dress that will add some playful patterns under your grad gown. Or, opt for this gorgeous bell-sleeve dress. Both these outfits go great with chunkier or lower heels, which will be a lot more comfortable than most other fancy shoes (your feet will thank you!).

It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.

Wide Legged Trousers

Tight pants are not your friend during the summer. Wide legged trousers are super comfy and keep you cool while not showing too much of your skin.

Long Shirt Dress

This fashionable, yet formal dress will carry you through the summer. Just slip it on, throw on some nice shoes and you're ready to go!

V-Neck Jumpsuit

Three words: onesies for grown-ups! You can layer a t-shirt inside, or quickly throw on a blazer and your outfit will be ready for your next big meeting.

Off-Shoulder Blouse

They show just the right amount of skin, and you can keep it on for your hot date right after work!

Formal Shorts

If shorts are allowed in your office, then don't be afraid to wear a conservative option that flatters your figure but doesn't reveal too much.

Blazer

A blazer can make a lot of your non-work clothing ready for the office! Just style a structured blazer on top, and you'll be grateful that you have it when the AC is blasting all day inside.

High-Heeled Sandals

The heel is high enough to demand respect, but not so high that your feet will hurt. Sounds pretty great to us!

Midi Dress/Skirt

The length of a midi dress or skirt allows you to wear it all year round! Choose a fun pattern if you dare, and you'll find that you've brightened up an otherwise drab office space.

It's been over a decade since the first episode of Mad Men aired, ushering in the Golden Age of Television. For its seven-season run, the show had graced our screens every week with the dramas of 1960s Madison Avenue advertising executives. It provided an underlying commentary on the social mores of the era, all wrapped up in gorgeous, historically accurate aesthetics.

Sure we can't help but be impressed by how they managed to nail set design down to the very last detail, but the most impressive aspect of show visuals has always been how well they captured the iconic and dynamic fashion of the decade. From A-lines to playful prints to 60s mod, the styles of Mad Men's women have had lasting influence on pop culture and today's fashions, and have always made us kind of wish we were baby boomers (if only so we could dress like that!).

Now you can grab some 1960s inspiration with six of the show's most iconic outfits.

Betty Draper shows the rest of us how to look good running errands, like in this shot from season 3 when she decides to get more involved in local politics. Look just as chic while on the go too with a nice sleeveless dress, sheer gloves and matching sunglasses.

Betty pulls off 60s daywear effortlessly with a sleeveless blouse, spring-coloured slacks and flats. This combination makes for a chic off-duty look.

Joan Holloway was a force to be reckoned with both inside and outside of the offices of Sterling Cooper. The former office manager defied all gendered expectations of her in the era, while at the same time looking incredibly stylish. This dress is paired perfectly with a belt to flatter your figure, and is finished off with a cute little silk scarf. Accessorize with an eye-catching gold necklace!

Joan's office outfits were always on point, accentuating her figure and perfectly capturing iconic 60s trends. A red blouse is a daring choice that she definitely pulls off, tucked into a classic pencil skirt. A thin watch is the perfect accessory to complete this polished and professional look.

The queen of mod, Megan Draper was definitely one of the most fashion-forward characters of the show, standing out in every episode with bold prints and playful hemlines. Steal her vibrant beach look for your next day off this summer!

Of course we can't forget about Peggy Olson. Her style evolution has followed her development throughout the series from a fresh-faced new girl to creative career woman. This power suit is an incredible look, playing with layers on top of a turtleneck while still meaning business.

Say no to oily skin, sunburns, enlarged pores and acne this summer with these 5 products you shouldn't skip on your daily skincare routine!

Sunscreen

You should apply sunscreen all year round, but in the summer the days are longer, the sun is stronger, and people just can't resist spending more time outdoors, so sunscreen become more important than ever. Here are some small tips for choosing the best sunscreen for the summer:

  • Choose a sunscreen with “broad-spectrum” protection.
  • Choose a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30.
  • Reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours and even more often if you are swimming or sweating.

Check out our top sunscreens for face, body, lips and after sun care here!

Face wash with AHA/BHA

Your skin will become oily and sweaty in the summer, creating acne-prone environment. Choose a exfoliating face wash that has AHA or BHA, but remember to use it only 3 times a week at most as the acidic properties may dry out your skin.

Clay Mask

Use a clay mask once a week to detoxify your skin in the summer. Clay masks also help unclog and shrink pores!

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. It also contains antioxidants that protect your skin from damage. Apply aloe gel to your face and body after a long day outside, and it will feel amazing.

Hydrating Mist

Whether your skin is too dry, too dull, or just in need of a little pick-me-up, a few spritzes of a hydrating facial mist can transform your skin in seconds. Always keep one bottle in your bag when you go out on a sunny summer day.
