From frugal finds to investment pieces, there is a surprising method to Mary-Kate Olsen‘s styling madness: restraint! Revealing to WhoWhatWear.com that she prefers refined basics to offset bolder choices, the more eclectic Olsen calls a $29.99 tee from her StyleMint collection “an essential wardrobe staple.” And while she praises the “intricate, metallic detail” of a Chanel pre-fall look, it’s a streamlined carryall from The Row that she dubs “Chic. Period.”

Equally restrained are her beauty picks, which include Tom Ford’s Black Orchid perfume for “hints of sandalwood and patchouli” and By Terry Rose Balm for that perfect pout. And when a look demands that hint of edge, Olsen reaches for Elizabeth & James’s $155 “Lafayette” frames. As she insists, “The shape flatters the face.”
