Confession: we may or may not have a clock on our iPhones counting down until we can finally buy Nirvana (it comes out this month, FYI!). However, good news for everyone who hates to wait, because the new lookbook from Elizabeth and James is guaranteed to tide us--and you--over until then.

If there's anyone who has the whole "off-duty movie star" thing down pat, it's Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. So it should go without saying that the label has made a mark the past few seasons, thanks to effortless pieces that straddle the line between luxe (think rabbit fur cardigans and statement accessories) and downtown cool (roomy trousers, boxy tissue tees).

The twins' pre-fall '14 collection is a mishmash of '90s influences, from plaid button-ups to floral dresses to cropped pants paired with fisherman sweaters. It might sound simple, but on-point styling and touches like gauzy insets take the sophisticated grunge factor up a notch.

Let's just say this-- if Angela Chase spent her time on instead of with Jordan Catalano, she'd definitely be obsessed...and you will, too. See the entire lookbook here and start planning your outfits now.
