Though Mary-Kate and Ashley are fraternal twins, they often wore matching outfits in their early acting years that made it difficult for people to tell them apart.
The pair looked adorable in these matching black dresses layered over yellow collared shirts. However, the flower-topped hats are what make these looks truly iconic.
Even as young child stars, the Olsen twins knew how to accessorize.
Mary-Kate and Ashley’s head-to-toe outfits at the 1996 premiere for the film “Alaska” embodied quintessential ’90s style.
From their patent black leather loafers to their circle-shaped sunglasses, the twins looked totally in sync with each other in regards to fashion. Both twins also opted for fun hats to complete their looks.
As they got older, they wore coordinated, but not exactly matching, looks.
At the “Spice World” premiere in Hollywood in 1998, the Olsen twins wore coordinated blue and brown satin suit jackets and similar updo hairstyles.
At another Hollywood movie premiere, the twins decided to coordinate their looks once again.
At age 13, Mary-Kate and Ashley decided to wear matching black cardigans paired with fringed skirts and strappy black sandals. Over the years, Mary-Kate and Ashley have consistently worn coordinated, but not exactly “matching,” looks.
The 15-year-old stars embodied ’90s grunge fashion in matching black halter tops and choker necklaces while attending an *NSYNC record release party in 2001.
