Although they change their styles regularly, there are certain items that have been long associated with each Olsen and one with both.
MK’s Red Chanel
Mary Kate Olsen loves a red Chanel 2.55 so much she even wrote an article for the New York Times about it! She claims it was Ashley’s but I’ve yet to find a picture of her with it.
By Mary Kate Olsen
“I have a large, red quilted Chanel bag that I borrowed from my sister Ashley. I wore it to an event and never gave it back. Luckily, she's moved on to another bag, so I'm safe for now. I'm not quite sure how many bags I have, but let's just say I have a few. When I find a bag I like, I tend to wear it to death until I become obsessed with another one. This probably happens three to five times a year. But I always come back to the Chanel. The size isn't overwhelming, and it has enough subtle detail to keep it interesting.
I also have the smaller version in blue and in white, but the red is definitely my favorite. I don't have a stylist — I'd rather just do my own thing and put together my own outfits. The chain-handle bag is the perfect accent to almost any combination I come up with. I look at everything with a designer's eye, but I wouldn't change a thing about this bag. I think that's why it's a true classic.”
Ash’s Black Fendi
Ashley instead has long been seen with a black Fendi tote but she has yet to write a love letter to it.
And of course, Mary Kate & Ashley cannot live without a Venti cup from Starbucks. They run on coffee, not water, didn’t you know?
