Undoubtedly, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are two timeless style icons. Whether they’re at all relevant to the teenagers now raised on Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber, or whether you saw every one of their movies like Passport to Paris, or Winning London, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen remain firmly embedded as stars and inspirations for those really interested in fashion.
This is because although the Olsen twins are clothed almost entirely in designer duds, they have revolutionized certain trends that are totally applicable to us earthlings who cannot afford a five hundred dollar Chanel blazer. Think about boho style. These girls made long, oversized dresses and jackets stylish when all we could think about as teenagers were tight shirts and even tighter jeans. They evolved their own sense of fashion, and now have multiple clothing lines. Their success is international, and their discoveries and revelations for the fashion world have been crucial for innovation.
In honor of the twins’, we’ve compiled looks inspired by their personal style. All hail the oversize and Mark-Kate and Ashley!
