Style Icon: Elizabeth Olsen
We’re obsessed with Elizabeth Olsen’s sophisticated je ne sais quoi! Having proven herself as a remarkable actress in Martha Marcy May Marlene, she’s taken to trendsetting as effortlessly as her famous older sibs Mary-Kate and Ashley. But Lizzie has a look all her own—check out a few of our fave style snaps. Plus, we’re totally excited to see her thriller flick, Silent House, premiering this weekend!
What do you think? Is she It-Girl status?
BEYOND THE PALE
WHY WE LOVE IT >> This girl knows exactly how to turn heads in an all-white or barely gray ensemble. The keys: layering and contrasting textures. Notice how the lack of color makes you pay attention to the shape of her jacket and the intricate details on top?
HOW TO ROCK IT >> Sparkling accents instantly glitz this look up. Just pick up on the undertones of the neutral; gold is perfect with cream, while silver’s the ideal mate for gray. Knit Eyelet Dress (192953, $98), Lace Contrast Blazer (189226, $218), Sparkle Envelope Clutch (193999, $39)
WHY WE LOVE IT >> We’ve got a thing for eye-grabbing motifs and the way Elizabeth works them with unconventionally sexy necklines. Not to mention that lemon yellow and bold orange are so on-trend this season.
HOW TO ROCK IT >> Keep your add-ons solid and simple. Nude shoes are a must to wear with bright spring and summer prints! Four Way Sequin Mesh Dress (194795, $169), Print Cage Back Dress (193227, $129), One Shoulder Ikat Mesh Dress (194675, $98), Zahara Leather Slingback Cork Platform Sandal (190409, $149)
PAINT IT BLACK
WHY WE LOVE IT >> These are not your typical little black dresses. Elizabeth isn’t afraid to try a higher neckline (while keeping it fitted and sexy of course), some avant-garde asymmetry or a mix of leather and edgy shapes.
HOW TO ROCK IT >> Red and silver accents are Hollywood glam for a night out, but we’re also fans of a totally dark look with a black bag, mod eyes and a nude lip. Mariah Sequin Deep V-Neck Dress (192991, $159), Fitted Capelet Dress (188242, $139), Sheer Stripe Tank Maxi (189817, $98)
