Growing up and out of the role of America’s Disney sweethearts to become the most well-known twins in the fashion industry is not an easy feat, but Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did it – and they did it in their signature, highly coveted, and even more highly imitated style.
Their contributions to global trends can be summed up in two simple rules. Rule 1: Never look like you’re trying too hard. Rule 2: Opt for classic, no-frills, but supremely tailored clothing in darker hues that are preferably too large for you and throw on some super luxe and easy accessories. These girls favor exotic skins over any other fabric, love a good Chanel shoe (or a pair of Birkenstocks), and often wear pieces from their now-cult label, The Row.
On the occasion of their birthday, we salute the stylish twins by rounding up their signature looks in the gallery below, with accessories to buy now to cop their style.
