IN FOCUS: ALL ABOUT THE OLSENS

13 | 06 | 2016

With their evolution from cute child stars, teen TV dreams, to serious designers, the famous sisters have become renown for having impeccable and recognisable style. From Ashley’s sleek and slick, sophisticated look, to Mary Kate’s more eclectic, bohemian approach, the Olsen’s are every inch worthy of their style icon title. In honour of their 30th birthday we’ve rounded up our fave looks over the years with 9 style hacks the Olsen’s do well.

Mixing Genres

The Olsen’s dress down as well as they do up. Ashley nailed making the typical grungy uniform of a flannel shirt tied round your waist look somehow chic.

Boho Decadence

Reigning queen of all things boho, Mary Kate gave her typical go-to style an air of decadence with this iconic Met Ball look in 2003.

Anything Goes

The ultimate layer players, the Olsen’s always slay at cold weather dressing and even made socks with sandals look hella cool and so right.

Alternative Red Carpet

Through their mix of leather, leopard print and fur, the girls injected a fresh, decadent, rock and roll feel to their alternative red carpet look.

Oversized Everything

Who says petite girls can’t do oversized? MK bossed men’s tailoring in this chic street style look that shouldn’t work but just does.

Throwing Shade

Retro round sunnies are arguably one of their signature pieces. They earn major style kudos from us here for incorporating them into their luxe evening look.

Head Gear

Always pushing boundaries, the girls put turbans back on the fashion map and mixed with slept in, bed head locks made them bohemian cool.

Fool Proof Flannel

MK’s “borrowed from your boyfriend” style took a pretty ordinary piece and gave it a new lease of life, teaming flannel shirts with chunky platforms and layers of mismatched jewellery.

All Black Everything
