It’s difficult not to break a sweat while walking down the street these days, but for some reason, celebrities are seen all over New York and Los Angeles in their heaviest, and darkest clothing in the summer heat. The most recent (and reccurring) offenders are the Olsens.
Stylist Chriselle Lim posted a photo on Instagram Tuesday with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and while people are freaking out over the epic trio being photographed together, more people are focused on what the twins are wearing. “Isn’t it summer and aren’t we experiencing a nationwide heat wave? Why the jackets? I’m sweating just looking at this!” one commenter wrote, questioning the outfit choice, while others were simply confused as to when the photo was taken. “Is [this] recent it’s like 90 degrees out today lol,” noted one — because laughing out loud is all we’re doing, thinking about how much we’d be sweating under those trench coats.
This isn’t the first time the twins — or any other A-list celebrities — have been seen in sweat-worthy summer clothing. And it actually seems to be a trend. Just last week Kim Kardashian attended an event for Revolve in the Hamptons where she wore a sweater dress with thigh-high boots in 80-degree weather. And this week, Selena Gomez began wearing black turtlenecks and satin pants onstage — in the steamy Malaysian city of Selangor, of all places.
How they do it? We don’t know. But our guess is that when you’re in the biz, it’s all in the name of fashion.
