Following Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's personal style is a double-edged sword. On one end, the two typically avoid public appearances, so spotting a new outfit on either of them is rare. On the other, when it does happen, it's always inspiring.

Both Ashley and Mary-Kate have always led the charge when it comes to grandma dressing. It's no wonder now that square-toe shoes are making a comeback Ashley is full steam ahead. This year, she paired hers with a black blouse and trousers punctuated by an oversize embroidered scarf. Pure effortlessness.

Ashley's always been one for a good coat, so this beautiful camel-suede number is no surprise. Also, if you're not into leather, there are plenty of faux options on the market that capture the same vibe.

I tend to think of Ashley Olsen as an individual who eschews trends, which is why this python-print dress was slightly unexpected. That said, her riff on the pattern feels in sync with her personal style; long fur coat on top, sleek black accessories to finish.
Ashley has always favored comfort and ease in place of curve-skimming silhouettes. The result is an insouciant vibe that makes you want to reach for your baggiest trousers and seize the day with laid-back confidence.
