How to Dress Like Olivia Palermo
Olivia Palermo has a sense of style that is sadly rare in Hollywood stars today. She is beautiful and elegant at the same time. While she looks trendy, it’s not because she’s blindly following the latest fashion trends. She makes her own fashion statements, and you can do the same.
The first tip is to make your own statements. Although it’s good to keep up with current fashion trends, it’s more important that you make your own statement with everything that you wear. Olivia Palermo layers beiges and tans to form a very neutral and relaxed look. She also isn’t afraid to combine colors, and wear bold yellow shoes with an otherwise black and tan ensemble.
The second tip is to dress for the occasion and the season. If you are going to a cocktail party in the fall, you will want to break out your little black dress for a simple yet elegant look. To set yourself apart, add brightly colored accessories, including clutches or handbags, shoes, or other jewelry. Be sure that your accessories are also fitting for the occasion, and match your dress in some way.
In the spring, you’ll want to exchange that little black dress for a white one, and continue to accessorize accordingly. Wearing a cute white dress is elegant while portraying a sense of elegance. With the white dress, it is even more important to carefully choose colored accessories that match it well. Necklaces and bracelets that are neutrally colored or have lighter shades go best with white dresses as they don’t draw too much attention away from the dress.
The third tip to having a style like Olivia Palermo is to take full advantage of the maxi skirt. Maxi skirts can be found in various lengths, and are great because they can be mixed and matched with various shirts and jackets and are elegant yet whimsical. If you have a great pair of shoes to show off, you can find one that comes above your ankle. For a more formal occasion, there are floor length maxi skirts that work very well for that. The maxi skirt is also great for going out on every day errands, as you can find them in bold patterns that make them very casual as well.
No matter what you do to strive to have Olivia Palermo’s style, it’s important to be yourself. Use clothes you already have in your closet and find new ways to combine them, or buy new clothes that you can easily match to your old clothes. Olivia Palermo is all about looking fabulous yet approachable, and you can do it by following these three tips.
