Ashley Olsen's Sneaker Styling Trick Is So Easy

In many ways, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are harbingers for a new trend. Whether it be their early adoption of flip flops, or their recent—and unexpected—bridesmaids looks, the duo isn't afraid to twist trends or eschew them altogether for their own current fancy. Case in point: Ashley Olsen's latest look stars an of-the-moment must-have, white sneakers, but by styling them with tall, scrunched socks, she takes them in an unexpected direction.

Ashley opted for a pair of red socks that offer a surprising pop of color against the sleek white sneakers. To put your own spin on the pairing, try statement socks with a sporty stripe or hint of sparkle, and then pair them with jeans or leggings. Sure socks are easy to overlook, but Ashley Olsen proves that they can anchor an entire outfit.
