Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen may not make many red carpet appearances these days, but the duo have long served as sources of inspiration for those who adore their effortless sense of style. Considering that their clothing label, The Row, has become synonymous with luxurious, minimalist staples, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's own easy, comfortable outfits are a great starting point for those wanting to step up their WFH looks.
The former actors have helped to set the trends since their childhoods on screen. During their years at NYU, paparazzi photos of the duo ushered in sweeping bohemian separates, oversized sunglasses, and Balenciaga Motorcycle bags. And now, shots of the business moguls outside of their Tribeca office can spur the selling out of a shoe or scarf. The one factor that has remained constant: the duo are always ahead of the curve, even when it comes to wardrobe basics.
And though the two often draw from The Row when putting together their day to day looks, it's easy to get the Olsen off-duty look by mixing in other polished but cozy brands like COS and Grey State. Check out a few cozy looks to inspire you below.
