They don’t look for attention, their looks are always very low profile and focused on sartorial excellence. If you identify with this minimal approach to fashion, this key pieces will help you get a little closer to looking like an Olsen sister.

Garments that don’t care for accentuating any figure. Structured dresses, pants and blazers usually in neutral tones, this is as minimal as you can get. No embroidery, no prints, simply a beautifully executed piece that shines for its quality.
