Summer Best Dressed 2013: Olivia Palermo's Perfectly Mismatched Style Bags Her The Number 7 Slot

  

Roll up, roll up - it’s time to reveal the best dressed stars of summer! You lovely lot laid your style cards on the table and voted in your thousands to crown the most stylish A-listers of recent months and in this week's issue of Grazia, all is revealed.

But who made the grade? Was it Taylor Swift and her country-to-cool makeover? Olivia Palermo and her matchy-matchy Uptown gloss? Maybe there’s a new girl in town… a certain Cara Delevingne? Or have the Knowles sisters – Beyonce and Solange – proven their sibling style prowess effort both on and off stage? Who'd win in a family face-off? And let's not forget Kate Middleton’s safe-n-sweet style. Or Rihanna's multiple wardrobe-changes-per-day, each one more jaw-droppingly fabulous. It's a toughie.

Pick up the new issue of Grazia - out this week - where we crack the sartorial codes behind the top 10 leading ladies. In the meantime, we'll be counting down from 10 to 1 right here on Grazia Daily. We already told you who made the cut for number 8number 9 and number 10 and here's the star in at number 7... Olivia Palermo!

Watch our Fashion Editor Hannah Almassi and Fashion Assistant Josh Newis-Smith discuss our Summer Best Dressed 2013 list for Fashtag TV...

Short suits were a top tailoring choice for the front row ladies of recent menswear shows in Milan and Paris, but OP's been doing the two-piece trend for ages. Her ability to always be perfectly mismatched means her short-suit styling is slightly deconstructed - she'll team printed city shorts with a classic black tux, for example. It works because of her carefully arranged complementary colour palettes and balancing out such micro things as a skort with her favourite patent jazz flats from YOiM.
