The daughters of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reality star Yolanda Foster have recently been seen in the spotlight themselves. When they’re not busy with their glamorous careers, these sisters (who are about two years apart) can be recognized for their equally-glamorous street styles. In fact, Bella and Gigi are quickly becoming fashion icons; since their appearances at Coachella, the Hadid sisters’ unique, yet stylish and cutting edge, ensembles have been the inspiration of young woman everywhere. While their refreshing East-meets-West style may seem impossible to personalize, these looks are surprisingly easy to recreate (and, not to mention, ideal for the summer).

Bella

Bella, the younger of the two sisters, is a nationally-ranked equestrian who is training to compete in the 2016 Olympics. As if that isn’t impressive enough, she is also following in the professional modeling footsteps of her sister. But, when Bella is just spending her time like a normal high schooler, she can be seen rocking cozy knits, lacy tanks, and tons of crop tops and flowing skirts. Channel the brunette beauty by pairing soft fabrics and girly florals with leather and spiked accents.

A cropped tank is a necessity this season — you don’t have to worry about it coming untucked from your high-waisted shorts or skirts. To keep covered, layer on a light cardigan and scarf like Bella’s.

Gigi

18-year-old Gigi Hadid is one of the newest faces of the GUESS? Jeans campaign, but when she is not in front of the camera, she has a style all her own.  The model is often spotted in stunning combinations of traditional American patterns (think: gingham and Navajo weavings) and exotic patterns (like Ikat); while bringing together timeless feminine favorites (like sequins) with new trends (she’s a huge fan of cut-outs). Chunky heels and a statement necklace will dress up this ultimate East-meets-West look, while strappy sandals and oversized sunglasses make it appropriate for daytime. With millions of combinations, the possibilities for recreating this ensemble are truly endless.

Give your shorts a break! A linen pant is a comfy alternative to those cut-offs, and the tribal pattern is also fitting for the sunny season. Low-key footwear, such as simple sandals or plain booties (as exemplified by the model) are the perfect match for busy pants.
Forever 21, $19.80
