No dynamic duo, however, ruled my childhood as much as the Olsen Twins. I spent countless hours vigilantly watching their movies: jam-packed with international jet-setting and–you guessed it–as much twin-identity swapping as possible.
Nowadays, Mary Kate and Ashley are focusing on projects off screen, allowing for public attention in another capacity: fashion.
If one thing is for sure, the Olsen Twins can dress. As a unit, their respective styles effortlessly play off each other; the same palpable synchronicity apparent in their joint acting roles. They dress with an unmistakable ease: always casual and always fluid. Boyfriend jeans, large sumer trench coats, and cape dresses are not easy to pull off–especially on a 5'2" frame. Yet, they continue to sport oversized frocks exquisitely. They understand proportion and shape, tools learned from time spent as active members of the fashion community. Their style cannot be classified under one title: it is just as much boho as it is edgy, androgynous, and sophisticated.
Of course, as separate entities, the Olsens have their own individuality in fashion. Together, however, as street style icons and budding designers, they really don't miss a beat.
