Style Crush: Olivia Palermo

I went looking for some inspiration on some street style sites and saw this laughable article on what to wear on a date. Can you imagine turning up on a first date in some of these outfits? That’s a solid test of the date right there. I don’t know. It made me sad laugh. Kids these days.

So in times of trouble I turn to Olivia Palermo to remind me that there is still some beauty and inspirational dressing in the world.

What I like about her style is that it isn’t too crazy but she does push the boundaries. I pretty much love each item she wears. So even if she does some weird fashion combining craziness, the individual pieces themselves are lovely. Save the fur things. They look a bit real to me. Eww.

She reuses clothes in different ways, so you will see the same pair of shoes worn with multiple outfits. Let’s face it, that’s what normal people do. That’s a skill in itself, buying things that can be worn multiple ways. 

It’s a fashion lesson in itself looking at what she wears and trying to work out why it looks good. Sure, sometimes it is just because she is pretty. Sometimes it is because it is clever.
