Halloween Costume Inspiration: Olsen Twins

Olsen Twin Costume

For many girls in my generation, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were the epitome of awesome. They were tv stars, adorable, and comic geniuses. Brother for sale?? Amazing. And now that they're all grown up, they stay on my radar for a totally different reason: their (in my opinion) bananas boho/old lady/high-end homeless style. Their style is so different and recognizable that I thought it would make a great costume. You could probably achieve this look by shopping your own closet, and maybe supplementing with some thrift shop items. For one stop shopping, a trip to grandma's might do the trick as well.

All you need is a pile of over-sized clothing, head pieces to put on over unbrushed hair, and an eyeliner that you don't mind using up in one night. You can earn even more points by talking a friend or significant other into being the Mary-Kate to your Ashley. I would definitely try to talk Lauren into doing this with me, but I think I'm too tall to pull it off. Unless the clothes look like they are in the process of eating you alive, it just doesn't work.
