The 30-year-old socialite, model, and fashion blogger from New York, Olivia Palermo, has been in the eyes of the international fashion press ever since her stint in MTV’s The City in 2008. Olivia exudes an aura of classy, cool femininity, which is why she is included among the most sought-after style icons.
Olivia’s accolades include collaborations with designers. Her latest endeavor is a clothing line called Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28, which is exclusively sold at Nordstrom.
Her trademark includes her ruby red nail polish, belts that she often wears to accessorize, and her unforgettable three-piece wedding dress that consisted of a crème cashmere sweater, white shorts with a full tulle skirt.
The ethereal fashion guru’s style is chic, edgy, classy and versatile, making Olivia an epitome of femininity. Be inspired by Olivia’s versatile style with these 5 tips:
Go for a smart business ensemble with a monochromatic scheme
Going monochrome can be challenging, but Olivia’s mastered the art. Accessorize with a belt or a necklace to add details to your ensemble. You can also wear a chic blazer to emphasize your formal look.
Mix and match patterns with base colors
She definitely does not follow trends, she sets them. When wearing patterns, make sure you don’t go overboard with accessorizing or matching, and always have a basic piece to complement your ensemble.
Be dapper in suits
What would your power closet be without suits? Olivia wears suits with heels, but you can also wear them with brogues.
Stay chic with an off-shoulder top
An off-shoulder top can be both edgy and chic, and Olivia has shown us why. Be inspired with the way she styles hers, and, as mentioned before, don’t go overboard with accessorizing.
Invest in a versatile denim piece
Denim is a classic piece that won’t go anywhere. Olivia loves to keep it simple – but not too simple. She still makes a statement with every ensemble she wears. A denim top, jacket, skirt, or jeans is a statement of classy edginess.
