Mary Kate and Ashley's Interpretation of Black

It's already mid-autumn so there's no way that you haven't seen at least one big 'Black is the New Black' plastered over style magazines and newspapers. And you must have seen lots of photos of gorgeous black clothes draped over the beautiful models from the fashion shows. The question is, how do normal people, aka we wear so much black and not look like we're simply boring. So today, I've decided to see how two of my fav. inspirations, Mary Kate aned Ashley are wearing this trend.

The great thing about looking at the Olsens is that there's two of them, meaning that you can see two very different styles but of similar trends. Ashley's outfits are always more polished and ladylike -totally cosmo city girl style (with flip flops.) Mary Kate's outfits as we all know, are more bohemian luxe influenced, always seemingly carelessly thrown together and gives off a really relaxed vibe.

Olsens' black diary:

29th May: Ash decides to start wearing the 'black' trend early with this casual long, flowy coat. This look is perfect for any day because it's so easy to throw together and jeans are one thing that we all have. And notice: she's traded in her Balenciaga for a Bottega Veneta.

30th Aug: MKA makes appearance at Much Music in seriously stylish flocks. I LOVE their outfits here. Two things to note here: Ash's sleeves are clinched, which transforms the loose sleeves into this season's big volume look. MK not suprisingly opted for a vintage-looking creation. And see that thick belt around her waist? -another big trend this season.

10th Sept: Ash arrrives at the Calvin Klein SS06 fashion show in New York. She's wearing a classy military-style mini-dress. Mini-dresses are great this season -wearing heels like Ash here is great, but in winter, put on some stockings and leather boots!

1st Oct: MK visits her friend in LA in a super casual boho outfit. All black is the thing this season, but feel free to use other clothing items such as shrugs and short jackets to add color and synergy to the outfit. And look! Even MK's traded her Balenciaga in for a Chanel!

19th Oct: MK shops in LA in all black. She's so black that she looks weirdly lady-like and elegant! Remember ladies, if your coat has a belt/ sash on it, remember to tie it around your waist to make it look more defined. And how does MK avoid looking 50 years old in all black? By using her special talent, accessorising of course!
Hope everyone managed to get a few inspirations from the oh-so-stylish Mary Kate and Ashley!

I think that last picture of MK is awful. She looks like she left her bathrobe on and threw in a few pieces of "luxe" jewelry for good measure.

i'm not inspired at all by mk or ashley: for me the olsen twins are just two spoiled holliwood starlets who have great stylists. i prefer to watch random people on the street and pick up the details and trends i find most original rather then seeking inspiration from the olsens (or any other major/largely copied celeb).

I´m very lucky --> I´m a black bitch :) and it suits me better than any other color.

Mary Kate and Ashley: How thin will they get? I´m looking forward to the day where they get transparent.

You spelled "interpretation" wrong in your title!

Anyhow, they only look polished for events, when their stylists dress them. When they dress themselves (i.e. the last two pictures), they look horrible. Not inspirational at all.

i love all those outfits! They are totally inspirational because they are unique. You just know that nobody else has that coat and nobody else would wear it with those very accessories. J'adorable.

i love how the olsens have their own signature style that they define on their terms - luckily for them they are starlets and thus are nearly fashion victim exempt... if i had that kind of power i would bring uggs back in a nanosecond... anyways, i love the short military dress and heels. you are right, they pull off a lot of these looks b/c of their fab accessories!

MK & Ashley have their own styl which is great because it really helps them stand out as individuals. If they did not have such a unique style no one would want to talk about them!

Sometimes it is a bit annoying to see how easy it is to look cool when you have gobs of money spilling out of your Balenciaga. I wish there were some starlets out there who dressed beautifully and did it without just buying pieces that are unique simply because they are produced in lower quantities at higher prices...

Or at the very least could we see some starlets who strayed from the big name designers to get their unique signature styles? I'd enjoy it if maybe the rich and famous bought a few one of a kind pieces from the more artistic smaller designers out there (as long as they are going to go with expensive unique stuff).

I usually really like the Olsen twins and their styles. Since my look tends to be more classic I side with Ashley, but Mary-Kate has a cool edge. The black is too opaque for them. I preffer them in lighter colors, it doesn't make them look like they're drowning in their clothes. They're so small and pale that it just doesn't work.

Besides that, after looking at those pictures I think those oversized sunglasses have gone too far! Time to retire them for some that don't make you look like a bug!!

Ashley and Mary-kate are just too cute...they looks good in everything they wear. i like how they dress themself up and mix everything together. i guess thats what make them stand out and unique. i personally think that the big sunglass fits them great and mary-kate over-sizing or mix-matching is so cute!...and i just loves ashleys look...i like her hair...it brighten her up and her more classic stlye seems to fit me more.....

i would like to see mary-kate blond again...that'll be the only change ill perferred.

Ashley looks fantastic (as usual), but I think they both need to stay away from those "bug eye sunglasses" cuz it makes them look like mosquitos :/

& I don't like Mary-Kate's look - it looks more 'trampy' than stylish.

I absolutely adore Mary-Kate's style! It's just amazing, the pieces she has, the way she throws them together... She is my #1 fashion idol! I was supposed to go shopping today but my mom, as usual, cancels on me leaving me in the dust.
