15 Times Kourtney Kardashian Was More Stylish Than Kim, Because Older Sisters Know Best

Although Kim Kardashian is often recognized as the style icon of her family, her older sister Kourtney Kardashian is just as (if not more) sartorially savvy. When it comes to pushing the envelope and going bold or going home, Kourtney is there to rock the unexpected. Of course that's not to say she doesn't also do a simple LBD better than anyone (spoiler: she does). Even though the sisters tend to dress similarly, Kourtney can sometimes outshine Kim thanks to her willingness to take risks. To prove it, here are 15 times Kourtney's style stole the show.

Sorry Kim, but your bustier dress has nothing on Kourtney’s black cropped sweater and leather mini.

Besides her faux-hawk being on-point, the simplicity of Kourtney’s off-the-shoulder number takes the cake here.

Khaki satin over red velvet (not the cake, obvs.) every time.

While I do love Kim’s structured look, Kourtney brings just the right amount of glam to her outfit with gold accents and a red lip.
