Mary Kate and Ashley Style Inspiration

After my post the other day talking about Mary Kate and Ashley being award Womenswear Designers of the Year and how they have inspired me in so many ways, I felt I should do a little post about their style and how to get the look.

The duo have been around for as long as I can remember and even when they first started walking the red carpet they still managed to look good! Their films are known by every girl from the 90s and were a fundamental part of  my childhood. New York Minute is still my go to film when I need a pick me up!

As the twins have gotten older though, fashion is where they have been found and Mary Kate was even declared a fashion icon for her homeless look. From their first clothing line in America "Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real fashion for real girls" they hit the headlines by providing full maternity leave for the workers making the clothes in Bangladesh!

Today they have multiple fashion lines including The Row (see my blogpost here), Elizabeth and James which is just stunning and plays with a little more colour (have a look here), as well as a new fashion line in Oslo, Norway. To say they have made an impact on the fashion world is a little understatement.

Here are some of my favourite pieces that have the Olsen twin look...
