The Next (Not So Big) Thing: Elizabeth Olsen

This indie darling is a style star...

Vintage DressIt’s never easy stepping out of your sister’s shadow. And, you are doubling down on the degree of difficulty when those sisters are fashion magnificents Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Little sister Elizabeth, however, has been carving out her own style niche and getting the seal of approval from fashion gatekeepers like Vogue. Mixing her sisters’ bohemian and chic styles into something all her own, her sartorial picks from girl next door, to tomboy, to eclectic evening make her fun and easy to emulate.

This California native loves to bring color and whimsy to the red carpet. Elizabeth has been burning up bi-coastal events in bright, bold prints, multi-colored statement accessories, and rich jewel hues. With spring’s colorful trends and the experimentation it invites, let’s take a cue from this gal’s signature sunny shades, and play with color for occasion dressing.

Like her siblings, Elizabeth can’t get enough of a great jacket, so much so that this separate might be said to be her signature. In looks from The Row, Balmain, and Chanel, Elizabeth has been rocking glam outerwear everywhere from premieres, to the streets of New York. A well-cut, lightweight blazer or shrug is the perfect addition to any spring ensemble, adding sophistication and keeping you comfy, for that time of year when night hasn’t quite caught up with the day’s warmth.

They key to Elizabeth’s look, and the thing that makes it so easy and fun to rock is her mix and match approach to style: Play with separates for day or night, have fun with accessories, and dare to be different. Add a bit of Elizabeth to your wardrobe, and you’ll be in the spotlight.
