The Olsen Twins Netflix Movie Has Convinced Us To Dress Like Them (Again)

by Adam Fletcher

It’s official: 2020 has been the year of big surprises. The latest piece of (good) news to make your jaw hit the floor and stop you in your tracks? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have hit Netflix.

Yep, on 1st November, our fave fashion duo returned to our screens with their most iconic movie to date, and, let’s just say, the 00s kid in us is absolutely screeeaming with excitement. Don’t get us wrong, we’re totally here for It Takes Two (their first movie to appear on Netflix back in Jan 2019), but there’s something about the fashun in New York Minute that just does it for us a little bit more.

So, to mark this moment, we’ve rounded up all our fave Olsen outfits ever, and they span across four whole decades. Let’s go…

1989

XXL scrunchies ✔Checked pinnies ✔Jelly shoes ✔ At just three years old, the Olsen sisters were already ticking off some major fashion trends & showing us that they know a thing or two about style.

1990

Just one year later, their wardrobes changed considerably. 1990 marked the time that they broke the mould with their looks & started to have fun with different styles.

1991

By 1991, the Olsens were hard at work playing lead roles in Full House, but they were also busy experimenting with oversized fits, headwear and pigtails.

1992

Is it just us, or is their style starting to resemble their wardrobe choices today? Here, they’ve opted for paisley-print dresses, white tights, and western-inspired boots.

1995

What to wear to a video signing in the mid-90s? Woven accessories, shell necklaces, roll-neck tops and sleeveless dresses. It’s MK & Ashley, would you imagine anything else?

1996

By the time the girls had finished filming It Takes Two, their style def. changed again. While out and about in LA, they wore matching loafers, sunglasses, and berets. These looks get two thumbs up from us. 👍 👍

1997

A day out with dad, but make it fashion. In 1997, we saw the Olsen girls arrive in some pastel-heavy looks, and we’re 100% here for it.

1998

Strappy sandals with a coordinating skirt-vest-and-cardi combo? Yep, they did that back in 1998 while attending an ABC event.

1999

Is that a midi skirt with tassels or a tassel-y scarf worn as a skirt? We’re not entirely sure, but the button-through cardis, 90s hairstyles and strappy sandals are everything.

2000

Transitioning from pastels to prints. The Olsens visited Sydney in (you guessed it) coordinating looks but, this time, they’ve gone for patterns that feature bold colours and strong lines.

2001

On the red carpet for the Rush Hour 2 (ahh, memories) film premiere, the stylish sisters stepped out in nice tops, tailored trousers and strappy sandals. So 00s.

2002

The girls definitely know how to put a daytime look together, but their flair for fashion is even more evident when they dress up for events. We adore this pinstripe-suit-and-pointed-shoe combo.

2002

Butterfly prints were major during this decade, which is possibly why the Olsen twins were wearing them on their blouses to the premiere of Goldmember, ofc.

2002

Cord, calling… Why not pick up a coloured corduroy blazer and jeans when announcing your new fashion range with retailer Walmart at just 15 years old? We would.

2003

The Olsens love to play with different silhouettes, and their wardrobes in 2003 were no different. For the Charlie's Angels film premiere, they rocked floaty maxis and kimonos.

2004

When you’ve earned yourself a Hollywood star, you know you’ve made it big. To make the moment more iconic, they sported satin textures, statement earrings & contrasting hair colours.

2005

Nothing quite says ‘2005 Olsen style’ like neutral tones, lace and piles of pearl necklaces.

2006

Two years later, and the girls continue to switch up their hair and wardrobes. Ashley dyed her hair (even) darker for this event, while MK developed her own unique style.

2007

Back to blonde highlights, back to black-and-white looks. This monochrome moment, however, is v. v. v. different to what we’ve seen them wear earlier in 1991 and 1996.

2008

In 2008, oversized ‘bug’ sunglasses became a signature piece in their wardrobes, as did razor-sharp cheekbones and designer bags.

2008

Black & gold. Can you think of a more iconic pairing? The twins might be wearing contrasting dresses, but they still manage to complement each other. Sister goals.

2009

For the Nine film premiere, Ashley illustrates her low-key approach to style but MK’s ‘boho’ vibes are in full force. That harlequin diamond jacket though 😍

2010

When the Olsens are concerned, a picture isn’t complete without a little pout and a great purse. Girls, we salute your style.

2011

FROW calls for an all-black look or neutrals with mock-croc heels. Fact.

2011

Mary-Kate’s jacket choices are pure gold, but the one she wore to the CFDA Awards is beyond epic.

2012

Now you see me, now you…You might feel incognito when you wear sunglasses to a show, but we still see you. We mean, the gold detail on those aviators is hard to miss.

2013

By 2013, the girls hadn’t acted for 9 years, but that just gave them more time to work on their exclusive range with Bik Bok. Come through.

2014

Both equally iconic, the girls turn out two simple, yet show-stopping, looks while on the red carpet. Less is def. more.

2015

Faux fur. Sheer. Embellished. Lace. When Mary-Kate and Ashley create an all-black look, it can never be boring. Ever.

2016

Coordinating days, bye. The girls haven’t sported matchy-matchy looks for years, but we’re not mad about it. We’ll happily accept their all-black and (almost) all-gold offerings 😉

2017

We’re obsessed with the Olsens in monochrome, and monochrome is obsessed with the Olsens. For proof, just look at their looks at the CFDA Fashion Awards in 2017.

2018

Remember the days when they didn’t wear something flowy? Us neither. And, as shown here, a body chain and patchwork print are also things that only girls like the Olsens can pull off.

2019

Leather-look dresses done right. The Olsens are the queens of wearing this texture. How do they do it? With a nipped-in waist, corset-style detail, and voluminous skirt.
