Social season requires multi-functional, season-appropriate yet style conscious pieces. With that in mind, today I picked two glamorous looks from Olivia Palermo, see how she pulled together elegant, fashionable looks that are great for many social events, from formal black tie to a baby shower or date night, by using pieces that can be easily restyled in many different ways.

Like how Raf Simons infused modern poetry to Dior’s bravura signatures, Olivia Palermo chose sleek white blazer to go with her opulent, luxurious organza skirt for the house’s couture show. Front row styles are my favorite to observe, I greatly appreciate outfits like this which capture the spirit of the brand, yet so wearable.

This look is great for formal events, gallery opening, museum exhibits, weddings or fancy dinner. The white blazer, black pumps, embellished belt and cuffs can polish up many casual outfits as well.

The second look below blended different styles harmoniously together: the edgy animal print shirt, girly flared skirt, cool aviator sunglasses and cut-out booties. This drop-waist skirt on her is a new trend this season. Since the flare starts at our hips, the best way to style them is with tops tucked in to highlight our waistline. An embellished belt helps to cinch the waist. Style savvy Olivia also used nude heels to elongate her slim legs.

Again, each piece in this outfit can be easily restyled: Wear the printed blouse with white skinny jeans or black cropped pants; Team the flared skirt with a peplum top or bomber jacket. The usage of the accessories (nude cut out sandals, blue bag and embellished belt) is endless.

Last time, we shared two ways to style a white blazer: one is bold, another is laid-back chic. If neither fit you, today’s looks you will surely love: two girly, sweet outfits from American’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon.

Although she is already a mother-of-three, her looks always have a youthful, girly and optimistic flair. She knows her strength and what suits her best:

Start from the blazer, this particular one on her has a mix of subtle textures: twill, satin and leather (yes! the notched lapels are beautifully made of smooth white leather!) which give the whole look a luxurious, elegant and fashionable vibe.

White blazer creates the perfect canvas for beautiful bright colors. The fresh red printed skirt and blue dress on her are perfect for warm weather. To highlight her lean legs, she chose above-knee versions, with nude sandals, the total look is leg-elongating.

For women about her age, I would say don’t be afraid to try above-the-knee length skirt/dress, as long as you choose age-appropriate patterns/colors, and keep your arms covered with a cardigan or a well-tailored jacket.

Last but not least, accessories are great to keep up with trends without being overdone, like the white IT bag, safety chain cuff, strappy sandals and layered necklaces you see on the star.
