Our Favourite Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Moments

As Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen enter their 32nd year, it’s hard to believe that these are the same adorable girls we watched getting into wholesome shenanigans on Full House and solving “any crime by dinner time” on their multiple VHS releases. From matchy-matchy ensembles, to the glory days of dumpster boho, to their current mode of effortless, androgynous dressing, their style evolution has been meticulously documented throughout the years. Images of most people’s adolescent style is usually fodder for endless LOLs, but for the Olsens, they’re icons in the street style world. Oh, to have good taste and millions of dollars.

With that, let’s take a trip down memory lane and re-visit our top Mary Kate and Ashley moments.

Bandanas as hair ties—they were visionaries from the get-go.

Was this not the hair of your 12-year-old dreams?

We actually wore shirts that exposed pink bra straps for years after seeing this photo.

The beginning of the “throw on whatever’s on your bedroom floor” trend.

So begin the days of Margot Tenenbaum vibes.

The Olsens giving the world the gifts of cowboy boots and oversize scarves.

Making burlap sacks look chic AF.

Pioneering the “lazy hair” movement—greasy top knots and chunky hairbands rule the world!

How to walk a step-and-repeat while looking like a boss.

The beginning of their transition to a sleeker, more minimalist look.

A crisp, tailored shirt paired with playful heels is a guaranteed win.

Giving traditional ball gowns a modern twist at the “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” Met Gala.

At the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards, making black look anything but basic.

We’re beginning to sense a theme here…

At this year’s CFDAs, where they took home their third award from the council, this time for Womenswear Designers of the Year. It’s good to be an Olsen!
