Yes, there have been some missteps (like Mary-Kate's puffy headband phase). But, for women who have spent nearly every day of their 28 years being photographed (today's their birthday!), they've managed to look not only shockingly good almost all the time, but to also see trends coming at least a year or two before the rest of the world cottoned on. (We admit — we spent most of 2007 trying to copy Mary-Kate's flannel-and-Balenciaga-boot combo.)
So, in honor of the twins' 28th birthday, we rounded up 15 trends that MK+A made us want to try — and that we shamelessly copied, with varying degrees of success. Here's to many more years of round sunnies, cozy-girl layers, and of course, venti Starbucks cups. Mazel!
