I gotta hand it to Olivia Palermo, professional clothes wearer and girl about town — she surprised me with her choice in wedding attire! Olivia married her longtime love, the equally good-looking and stylish Johannes Huebl this weekend, but instead of donning incredibly chic wedding dress, as you might expect, she wore a light cashmere sweater and white shorts with a satin and tulle skirt over top, all by Carolina Herrera. I love the look and think it was perfect for the low-key and small ceremony in Bedford, NY, especially given the rising temperatures. Plus, I think it’s cool when brides break the mold and wear something not-so-traditional on the big day. (I’ve always said I’m going to wear flip-flops to my wedding, not that I’m getting married anytime soon.) But what do you think of Olivia’s wedding ensemble? [E! Online]
Olivia Palermo, professional pretty person who shops and attends parties for a living, has done it again! I mean, I guess it isn’t hard when nailing a perfect outfit is basically your reason for existence. But still! I love a Canadian tuxedo — aka denim on denim — but it can go so badly. Olivia’s rocking it well, though, pairing her skinny jeans and denim shirt with a chic black and white blazer, gorgeous gold stilettos and a bright yellow clutch. The next time the temps take a dip, I’m going to copy cat her. And now you can too with these pieces… Keep reading »
Happy Thursday, students! It’s time for an advanced lesson in print mixing, brought to you by professional do-nothing Olivia Palermo. I was so inspired by Olivia’s daring decision to combine three prints in one outfit that I just had to do a little Fashion Math of my own. Here are six ways to wear stripes, checks/plaids and polka dots — at the same time…
Next time you wake up late and only have a few minutes to get ready for work, save time stressing over what to wear and just throw on your favorite black and white pieces. Like the outfit my favorite do-nothing socialite Olivia Palermo is rocking above, sticking with black and white is a guaranteed way to look at least a little pulled together, no matter how frazzled you might feel inside. I love how Olivia has layered a fitted honeycomb sweater over an oversized button-down and skinny tuxedo pants — the proportions are so flattering. Find out how to get the look above, after the jump!

Olivia Palermo always has to have the last word, doesn’t she? Swooping on in with yet another covetable outfit, just in time to be our last Style Stealer of 2013. And in an Old Navy sweater to boot! Now, I would totally wear this outfit myself, except I am prone to butt sweat, which is only exacerbated by wearing leather. Seriously, I put on leather and I instantly turn into Ross Gellar in the leather pants episode of “Friends.” But the rest of you who don’t have over-active sweat glands in your butt cheek area should totally recreate her full outfit and make me jealous. (Full shopping details are after the jump!) Keep reading »
Here’s what happens far, far, far too often when I’m working on a Style Stealer. I see a celeb in an outfit I think is awesome and I think to myself, Oh cool, this will be easy to steal — I’ve seen [INSERT EXTREMELY TRENDY KEY ITEM] everywhere! I embark upon my quest, searching for each item that makes up the outfit, only to discover that the key item I saw everywhere literally just days ago is somehow gone. Sold out, suddenly nowhere to be found, maybe never existed, whatever. It’s like I dreamt up the ubiquitousness of this item. But because I am totally ADD/OCD, I end up hyper-focusing on replicating that outfit, even though it’s no longer nearly as simple, and suddenly, three hours later, I have a Style Stealer that is cute, but probably better described as inspired by the original celeb’s look, rather than a remotely-close replica. I both feel like a failure (for spending such a ridiculous amount of time on something so silly) and victorious (for completing a task I set out to accomplish, dammit).
Such is the case with this Olivia Palermo look. That sleeveless white blazer? Everywhere last week, NOWHERE today. In my exhaustive research, however, I have learned that this item is also called a “gilet” or “waistcoat,” so it wasn’t a total waste of my time. Anyway, I ended up going with a regular ol’ white blazer with black details, layed over a black jumpsuit with a similar lacy neckline, and a jeweled clutch that is just as fancy as Olivia’s, but looks nothing like it. Ugh, whatever. Click on for the shopping details!
