The Olsen Effect

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have gone from child sitcom starts to international style icons, and while I never got into their tween fashion empire back in the 90's I have more recently been appreciating their street style. Case in point this outfit inspiration photo:

Here's my take from this past Monday:

blazer/pants-Gap(similar blazer here), shirt-Old Navy(similar here), bag-Zara, necklace-chloe + isabel c/c of Angela B, watch-Michael Kors(similar here), shoes-Sole Society(similarish here), sunnies-ViVI

This may seem like a pretty simple/straight-forward outfit, but the details, for me, make this a statement look. First, I'm breaking that old rule of not mixing navy and black. True, certain navy and black combos don't always work, it all depends on the shade of each, and the level of contrast. Here it's working, as are the silver accessories. The necklace in particular is bringing the glam, while the mesh-paneled loafers are a nod to the summer season. And I pretty much nailed the inspiration photo and played into the nonchalance of the Olsen style. So there you have it my friends--the Olsen Effect!
