Olivia Palermo is undoubtedly a fashion icon. She always looks flawless no matter what she does: walks the dog, runs errands or attends red carpet event. But compared to her ladylike looks (like this one with girly pink Valentino dress), I prefer to see her in some edgy, chic pieces. Since she is so sweet and elegant, the former is too predictable, whereas the latter is more attractive because of the contrasts. I believe most of you know what I mean.
As I mentioned in this post, the reasons I featured her countless of times are that many pieces from her looks are accessible for us (thanks for her outstanding skill in mixing and matching high & low brands), many of her outfits are so wearable and easy to recreate, also she is frequently spotted using the same piece to create totally different but equally stylish looks, like this Vince sweater we featured today.
This sweater is such a staple: the color is versatile, goes with everything; the length is perfect paired with jeans, leggings or mini skirts; the design of collar and sleeves can show off what’s underneath, the loose fit makes it flatter most body shapes.
In the first look above, Olivia Palermo used all neutrals (grey, white and black) to create a sophisticated palette. The leather pants and booties add cool-girl vibe. The structured tote is an intense, finishing touch while the colors of the bag tie everything together.
Her second look above is quite comfy, cozy and laid-back. Denim shirt, jeans and ballet flats are essential pieces we all have in our closet, but details make her look more polished and glamorous, including the stand-up collar of her shirt, her gold watch, red nails, flawless hair and again, the colorblock Chloé tote.
Below are several picks I adore for you to play with layers while staying warm this fall, happy shopping!
Vince short sleeve poncho (also here & here); Chloe Alice Springs handbag. Yes, they are the ones on Olivia!
For the Chloe bag, if you want a smaller and more delicate size, but in the same high-contrast black and white palette, then don’t miss this legendary Givenchy Antigona! We just discussed it in versatile black few days ago here.
Vince boat-neck sweater. It’s from the same brand but with more details. The rounded hem, shoulder line add dimension. And the color is perfect for fall.
Vince V-back cashmere sweater. The back of this sweater is a deep V-shape. Such an unexpected finishing touch! And the color is so sophisticated.
