One of the things Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are most-commonly known for—other than their iconic semi-dishevelled hair, their love of huge sunglasses and their smoker-friendly weddings—is their propensity to wear all-black, all the time.
One only has to flip through their style file to see that they're almost always wearing black, or another similar dark colour like navy, deep green on maroon. In fact, in the last decade, MK&A have so rarely worn any form of bright colours that it's become a running joke in the fashion industry.
But that's not to say that the 31-year-olds have never worn colour—they just wear it sparingly. In the interest of documenting their complex relationship with brights, we've tracked down each and every time they've ventured out of their neutrals-and-darks palette.
(Spoiler: They barely reach double digits.)
