Elizabeth Olsen’s style has always been big and bold, especially her penchant for balloon sleeves and bold colors, and it’s continued today subtly with a more streamlined, yet still strong and infectious design.
The ‘The Scarlet Witch’ actress went green in NYC in a ’60s mini dress and bow-tie mules.
The color was remarkably rich in variations of green. Since the background of the print is green, it also included geometric shapes of triangles and circles, which give the dress a certain personality. The dress also features a slim stand-up collar with a loose bust that tapers around the waist.
Her accessories are slim except for her rounded black sunglasses which further accentuate the retro inspiration.
One of the most adorable additions to the outfit were Olsen’s bow tie mules. The kitten heel mules featured a beige bow on a pointed black sole. With the dress, these mules work perfectly as they contrast the green with muted colors but keep the vintage Hollywood theme.
As Olsen channeled another decade, the mules themselves have an interesting history. They were first popularized in the 17th century as bedroom slippers, then came into fashion thanks to the wealthy women of the French court. The variety of shoes reappeared in the 1950s, with stars like Marilyn Monroe favoring the style, especially the new open-toe silhouette. Mules have recently seen a rise in popularity in the 2010s in all types of fashion.
