I really like how Olivia Palermo styled this outfit, because when one is pulling a pair of (kind of loud) wide-legged black and white striped trousers out of one’s closet, one doesn’t necessarily think, now where is my equally attention-grabbing black and white striped shirt to go with? Yet somehow the whole thing comes together quite elegantly.
It’s easy to forget how totally crazy the scene outside the Paris fashion shows has gotten when you’re in the middle of it for a couple days. Scene from an average evening: Olivia Palermo entering the Fendi couture show, flanked by bodyguards and surrounded by photographers, tourists, selfie-seeking teenagers and PETA protesters.
Olivia Palermo wore a great black and white floral print dress, black fur and sunglasses to the Carolina Herrera show in New York.
I love the color burgundy at this time of year. I also love warm turtleneck sweaters, but hate looking schlumpy. Of course, Olivia Palermo managed to style all these things to look quite chic. At the Nina Ricci show in Paris, she ignored the “rule” about not tucking your sweater into your skirt or pants and tucked her burgundy turtleneck sweater partway into a pencil skirt of the same color to emphasize the waistline. Then she topped it with a big statement necklace and added nude heels for a ladylike look. Brava.
Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.
Olivia Palermo wore a great cobalt blue coat with fur collar and brown leather sleeves to the Diane von Furstenberg show in New York. Also note the flash of bare ankles: this is an instant style upgrade anyone can do for spring – as soon as you dare to bare your ankles!
Every time I see this, I get shoe envy. Over-the-knee boots are great for fall 2013, especially with a minidress like the plaid zippered Zara one Olivia Palermo wears here. And yes, that is a horde of photographers running behind her!
