When life starts to feel chaotic, it's a comfort to remember that you can always count on one thing: the Olsens will wear maxi skirts, and they will wear them well. At the Los Angeles premiere of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Elizabeth Olsen turned up in a wonderfully simple t-shirt and sweeping skirt combo from the one-year-old London-based brand Galvan. 

Dressing thematically has been something of a trend on the red carpet lately — Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie were approximately in character throughout the "Maleficent" press tour, and Lily James was all but a real life Cinderella while promoting that film — and though Olsen's look is certainly less literal than those examples, it does have a distinct superhero vibe to it. Paired with windblown hair and a red lip, the clean-lined separates and gold jewelry become something sporty, strong and all-American. 

Chris Evans, a.k.a. Captain America, should take note.
