Two for Tuesday: Olivia Palermo

Source: green, black

Ah, Olivia Palermo.  She can do no wrong.  Her looks are consistently classy, chic, and elegant.  One of the things I like most about this gal is that her fashion is timeless.  On several ocassions I’ve turned to her for inspiration only to come across a picture that appears to be a recent look, but then discover it’s a photo from five years ago.  I guess five years isn’t timeless, but it’s the fashion world.  Trends change on a dime.  However, Olivia always manages to be au courant yet classic at the same time.  I aim for the same with my style (though I’m not nearly as glamorous as OP).  Today I’ve curated two of her colder weather looks.  They’re quite different from each other, but both are posh and effortlessly cool.

  1. Coat // Topshop – OP’s Valentino coat is what I caught my eye with this first look.  This option emulates the original for $5,050 less (not kidding, her coat is $5,200).
  2. Top // Amazon – I know I said this was a colder weather look and here I am giving you a tank top.  But, Olivia is wearing a sleeveless top in the inspiration photo and is, quite frankly, killing it.  Here’s a long sleeve option.
  3. Scarf // Amazon – I’m not sure there is an accessory classier than a scarf.  Adding one instantly elevates and polishes your look.
  4. Jeans // Zappos – Distressed jeans certainly add an interesting touch, but any pair of skinnys you have in your closet would work for this.
  5. Flats // JCPenney – These lace up flats totally complete this look.
  6. Bag // Asos – A cute little bag keeping with Olivia’s vibe.

  1. Coat // Nordstrom – I’m digging Olivia’s all black look, beginning with the jacket.
  2. Bow Top // Target – This adorable top is part of the Who What Wear line for Target.  Have you seen that collection?  It’s tip-top.
  3. Sunglasses // Charming Charlie – Adding just a touch of color with these cute sunglasses.  And they are only $9.
  4. Jeans // Kohl’s – OP keeps everything black, including her skinny jeans.  These are from Lauren Conrad’s line.
  5. Boots // Amazon – These are my obsession for the day.  The open front is perfection.  The boots in the inspiration photo have a higher heel, but I get more wear out of boots with a lower profile.  Plus they’re better for your spine per my chiropractor.
  6. Purse // Amazon – This purse adds a fun and unexpected touch of pattern to the otherwise solid black look.
