Mary-Kate Olsen steps out in business casual look as she walks to work in New York City

Mary-Kate Olsen looked ready for business earlier this week.

On Wednesday, the fashion designer was seen out dressed in a typically stylish ensemble as she took a walk to her office in New York City.

The 35-year-old former Full House star looked stylish in navy blue pants, a white t-shirt, oversized coat and sneakers while she carried two oversized bags through the streets of The Big Apple.

Her trademark dark blond hair hung in loose layers.

She finished off the look with huge gold ring and watch.

Mary-Kate and her twin sister, Ashley, stepped away from acting more than a decade ago and have devoted their careers to making the world a little more beautiful via fashion.

The pair say their parents taught them to be ‘discreet people’ and their minimalist but elegant aesthetic comes from that upbringing.

Their first brand, The Row was founded in 2006 and the sisters celebrated the company’s 15th anniversary last June.

During a rare interview marking the occasion, the 5’2′ powerhouse said, ‘Creatively, we wanted to explore making something of ourselves.’

The Olsen twins spent eight years sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on the hit sitcom Full House (1987-1995.) They were able to segue their popularity on the show into a media empire, earning millions starring in a series of videos with stories built around the twins and their adventures.

They were also the faces of a Walmart clothing brand and beauty line, Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real fashion for real girls.

Low profile: Both sisters prefer to keep a low profile and have a limited social media presence.  Mary-Kate's last acting job was in 2011

The sisters said this early experience helped them learn ‘what sells in the fashion mass market’ and have since created their own multi-million dollar empire.

Since launching their first line, the pair have also ventured forth with three other collections: Elizabeth and James, Olsenboye, and StyleMint.

The award winning fashionista is divorced from French banker Oliver Sarkozy, 52, the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

The couple started dating in 2014, but the marriage fell apart and the divorce was finalized in January 2021.

Both MK, as she’s sometimes called, and Ashley prefer to live privately and let the work speak for itself.

The pair have a limited social media presence, but did make a public statement earlier this year after the tragic death of their TV dad, Bob Saget.

‘Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.’
