They’re blonde, wide-eyed, and would probably fit in your pocket: just a few of the factors to take into consideration when trying to explain why we’ve adored the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen since they were no more than cherubic little faces popping up on our TV screens.
Fast-forward 20 years, and those cute-as-a-button twins have since carved out a global fashion empire and are probably the reason that ripped jeans will forever be in style. From maxi-sized sunglasses, boho skirts and kitten heels, battered boots, ginormous bags with eye-watering price tags, skinny jeans, masterful scarf-tying and layering of herculean proportions, it is safe to say that the Olsen twins have, are, and will always be amongst the most closely-followed style icons around.
Whether you’re a die-hard fan, or you consider your own Olsen obsession to fall under the ‘guilty pleasure’ spectrum, here’s a quick cheat sheet for true twinning style, courtesy of the fashion gurus at camargue, so you too can almost (because, you know, Olsen cheekbones) look like an Olsen.
Dinner With Your Billionaire S.O.
Black is the new black when it comes to Olsen-favoured evening attire. Infamous for their other-worldly layering skills, and dab hands at stacking on the jewels, dinner with your French billionaire bf is an opportune time to play a game of ‘who’s picking up the bill?’
