Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have become two of the biggest fashion icons of our generation. The 28 year old duo spawned the “boho chic” look with their blended mix of layered high-end and low-end clothing. The 2 founded ‘The Row” in 2006, a fashion label named in homage to London’s “Saville Row” and their influence in fashion didn’t stop there as they went on to establish “Elizabeth and James” in 2007, a second more contemporary collection.
The Olsen twins are a refreshing change in comparison to the archetypical style icons of this century like Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen and Olivia Palermo; providing a inspiration and a reassuring hope for the petite fashion enthusiasts out there.
Like many petite girls out there I appear drowned in material when it comes to wearing catwalk pieces. I observed the Olsen twins closely growing up and they taught me that although I can’t pull off ball gowns or jumpsuits, my pocket-rocket frame does coincide well with denim shorts, oversized knits and crop jackets.
Mary-Kate made ‘Alexander Wang rocco’ the “it bag” of 2008.
