Fashion Icon: The Olsen Twins

Ever since I was a young child, I was inspired by ¬†Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen. I used to tell my hair dresser to “cut my hair like Mary Kate & Ashely”. That was when I was about 6 years old. Now, at the age of 20 (quite soon to be 21, but who’s keeping track?) I still find inspiration in the Olsens.

Not only am I inspired by their fashion since, but also by their power. They’ve left the TV/movie world and have created their own fashion empire with their brands The Row and Elizabeth & James. Their ambition and success is something that I strive to have.
But, back to fashion. What I love about them: They’re classic. They stick to basic pieces, simple monochromatic color schemes, and timeless styles. Big bags. Oversized clothing. Simple makeup. I love it all. I’ve picked out a few images that I believe to¬†incorporate their style that I love.
