IT Girl of the Moment: Olivia Palermo

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Once in a while I come across a celeb that stands out as a style who is incredibly chic and often tznius (modest/refined). In my eyes, Olivia Palermo fits that bill.  Olivia reminds me of a real life Serena Van Der Woodsen. This socialite/model/actress grew up on the Upper East Side of New York, studied abroad in Paris, and continues to be a top fashion trendsetter.

Olivia expertly mixes her leathers (an obvious favorite of hers) to achieve this sophisticated look.   

Here, sporting the same fur vest and leopard shoes as in the previous photo, she gives her outfit a spring update with a floaty maxi-skirt in coral.

Olivia sure loves her fur vests and this grey one goes fabulously with her polka dot dress. (Notice how the gorgeous design on the floor is a perfect backdrop to this look.)

Beginning to see a pattern here? More fur and leather, this time balanced with a crisp white blouse for a sophisticated, ladylike look.

Here's another great maxi/fur look. Love the hat too!

This is one of my favorite fashion looks ever.  Noone makes neutrals as un-neutral  as Olivia does in this photo.  Take note of the to-die-for belt, bag and shoes!!

My Visual Shopping List Inspired by Olivia

All fashion aside, Olivia, like Serena on Gossip Girl, seems to radiate a sunny warmth and happiness, which may be one of the reasons why she always looks amazing. Lesson here? Inner peace and happiness may be your best accessory!

Til next time,
