Mary-Kate Olsen has worn a pair of slip-on Vans two days in a row. Actually, she's worn a nearly identical outfit featuring the sneakers for two days in a row, which can only mean one thing: she might actually be human.

Anyone who loves fashion knows that the Olsen twins exist on this untouchable high-fashion plane; one filled with iconic vintage runway looks, $39,000 backpacks, beat-up Birkin bags, and $10,000 outfits made up exclusively of The Row pieces. Olsen's affinity for Starbucks Chai lattes and Vans slip-ons, though, clearly shows she is just one of us.

This means that if you're planning on doing a Starbies run in a long black velour trench coat and a pair of Vans this week, you might end up wearing the exact same outfit as someone who is forever on The Met Gala invite list. It's a major confidence boost, and the latter part of the look only costs $50 at Nordstrom.

But the reality is that Olsen bringing back these classic, simple sneakers — which reached peak popularity around the time when Panic! At the Disco's I Write Sins Not Tragedies was at the top of everyone's iPod playlist — means a sellout is imminent. If you already have a pair you can fish out of your closet, great! There are also more than a couple of new styles to add to your collection, including a platform version. Plus, Sandy Liang's much-anticipated collaboration with the brand is set to launch in just 8 days.

Basically, outfit-repeating and Vans are in for 2022, which feels like a blessing. Here's hoping this is the year of more Olsen outfit spottings as well. And yes, we have our fingers crossed for a Vans and Birkin high-low moment.
