How To Recreate The Olsen Style Without Bankrupting Yourself

Reflecting a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance, the high-end brand of the Olsen sisters, The Row exudes chic, classic and finely manufactured pieces that many of us could only dream of owning. Luckily for us, some highly-coveted items make it to the SALE section of some online retailers (we’re liking this and this) twice a year, and that’s when we like to call shotgun as soon as our eyes graze the Internet.

If you were to look for more reachable fashion pieces designed by the style duo, then Elizabeth and James, The Row’s little sister is the next place for you to take a look at. The line differs from its older sibling by offering more playful and feminine pieces to elevate your current wardrobe at significantly more accessible price points.

With that being said, it isn’t a secret that the twins have made headlines time and time again for their effortless, carefree and elegant style. From monochrome to monotone looks that embody pure chicness, we can’t help but swoon over the (unfortunately) rare snapshots that appear from here and then.

Whenever they step out, whether at the arrivals part of an airport or seamless street-style snaps from their daily smoke breaks at the office, there’s no doubt that they make heads turn. If their style is everything you dream of, then oversized coats, bags, and kitten heels are your go-to closet staples. Or at least you wish they were. That’s why, if you aren’t in the position yet to splurge on $1k+ cashmere knits (because a girl can dream!), then you’re on the right page.

After much demand and constant spying and hunting for alternatives to their styles, we made it our duty to scour the Google and Pinterest of the world wide web to find a look we can all agree we’d love to recreate.

We looked high and low, and it came down to these 14 looks (we were aiming for 10, but that’s not as easy a task as it seems if you ask us), from the early 2000s to Met Gala appearances and paparazzi shots on NYC busy streets. Now, scroll down to re-create each look with high-street finds.
