Looking For Fashion?




I Have $90 and Want to Accessorize Like an Olsen Twin—Here's What I'm Buying


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are my forever style icons. Since we aren't blessed with pictures of the rather private sisters very often, I often turn to archive photos of the pair for inspiration. I find it telling of their sartorial prowess that even in photos that are several years old, their fashion choices somehow don't seem dated. This is especially true of their accessories.

I've been finding that if you're shopping at all, springing for a new accessory seems like the right way to go. The low cost per wear of accessories just makes sense in a time when a lot of us are being a bit more thoughtful about our purchases. So, I gave myself a task: Comb the internet for Olsen-inspired pieces that clock in under $90. I found bags, shoes, sunglasses, and jewelry items that emulate Mary-Kate and Ashley's personal picks, including many that are currently on sale.

From the perfect croc-stamped tote to wire-frame sunglasses that will never go out of style, scroll down to shop the picks (before I do)!

Comfy shoes and oversize sunglasses are Olsen staples at this point.

Hope on the comfortable-shoes train with this slick pair.

Extra masks on hand is always a good idea. You can't go wrong with classic black.

A modern cat-eye shape will go with every outfit.

We'll distract ourselves from Ashley Olsen's exquisite bracelet by focusing on her equally lovely (and more attainable) anklets.

A close up look at those anklets felt necessary. 

Don't ignore the ankles! 

For $8, what do you have to lose? 

Leave it up to Ashley Olsen to pull off a jewelry look that will make you look twice. Is that a black pearl on one ear and a white pearl on another? Genius.

We can get down with a mismatched pearl earring set.

Even a basic black turtleneck looks chic next to these earrings.

The Olsens do sunglasses well, and this classic, square, wire-rimmed pair is no exception.

The Who What Wear editors adore Le Specs for the high quality at a low price point.

We bet these look amazing on.

Layered necklaces are an Olsen accessorizing signature.

The charm on this necklace is lucky for those who travel a lot. While we not be going a lot places right now, we like the idea of snagging this necklace as a hopeful talisman for the future.

Another pretty coin necklace to add to the stack.

There's no bag the twins are both seen carrying more than a croc tote. As bag designers themselves, that endorsement is saying something!

Faux croc oftentimes looks way more expensive than it is. One reviewer of this bag noted, "it's even more beautiful than it looks in the product photo." 

Something about these sunglasses just reads "posh."

A simple kitten-heel sandal is a forever kind of shoe.

The stamped croc is just a bonus.

These have a slightly sporty feel.

Cuffed hoops have never looked better.

The Olsen twins wear a lot of black. This scrunchie would fit right in.

We're intrigued by this rectangular shape.

So artsy!

A minimalist tote for your minimalist outfit. Perfect.

Gold links never get old.

Oval sunglasses have a certain retro-chic sensibility. 

Though usually quite understated, the Olsens will spring for a rhinestone jewelry look occasionally. We think the stone feels especially fresh in anklet form.

Just in case you need to lock down your everyday jewelry look. 

A little bit glamorous, a little bit chic. These are Jackie O meets the Olsens.  Next: The Do's and Don'ts of Dressing Like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at Home
