The 1 Type of Dress Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Are Always Shopping For
It's all too often we spot Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on the red carpet, posing in stunning gowns. Only, it can be difficult to ID their looks — at least right away. While it's easy to assume the duo created the pieces they're wearing, that's not always the case. The sisters spoke to InStyle in a new interview, revealing details about their design process and their strong love for vintage shopping:
"There's something nice about knowing you are the only person in the world who has it. It's sort of like buying art. For everything that we call modern today, think about pieces made in the '20s and how modern they looked then and now," Mary-Kate said.
"Quality and scarcity. You look at these pieces and you have an emotional reaction, not just because they are pretty objects, but because they look and feel different from what is possible to do currently," Ashley explained.
Aha! So that's why the pair tends to appear granny-chic, oftentimes slipping into oversize silhouettes. The bonus? Designer dresses tend to be marked down when they come from past collections. Of course, styling such classic items can be difficult, so read on to see how the fashion masterminds do it, then check out even more tricks and tips from the Olsens.
