Fashion Icon: Olivia Palermo

Want to pull off your favorite celeb’s look but don’t know how? It’s easier than you think to achieve hollywood’s best style.

The first time I heard about Olivia Palermo was while watching MTV’s addicting reality show The City.

She may be cast as the villain and disliked by most viewers, but one thing that is certain is the girl has an amazing sense of style.

There is such elegance with how Palermo dresses that is so refreshing to see among the younger social scene. By mixing classic and trendy pieces seamlessly together, her look is always polished.

Palermo is a standout among other socialites with her “no fear” sense of style. Her look is great for college students who want to replicate a celebrity who has an extremely tailored, pulled together look.

From day, night and even in the work force, Palermo’s style is always top of the line.

How to achieve her look:

  • Olivia is a big fan of the classics: simple pleated skirts, striped crew neck tops and tailored trench coats. By investing in a few key classics, maintaining a chic style is guaranteed.
  • Intermix your favorite basics with standout accessories such as elaborate jeweled necklaces, black oversized sunnies or a textured handbag.
  • Try metallics for day to add some flair to your ensemble.
  • Pair tights with shorts. Swap out your ballet flats for a pair of sky-high heels, transitioning flawlessly from day to evening.
  • Palermo keeps her suits from looking stuffy by adding a bright pump and a layered necklace.
