Now we all know that Olivia Palermo is a style inspiration - a week ago, search engine stats showed that googling 'Olivia Palermo sunglasses' resulted in the most online purchases on the internet, like, ever - so it's assured that she has the cool, collected confidence to re-wear anything she likes. Last week she posted this pic (above, left) of herself in this tailored two-piece from Paul & Joe on her eponymously named site, as part of her self-assigned '30 looks for 30 days' challenge (naturally she passed with flying colours).
Only days later she stepped out in the same jacket and gave it a soft feminine spin with a monochrome pleat dress and soft suede Aquazzura heels. If you were ever in doubt of the versatility of a brightly coloured piece of tailoring - look no further. Olivia's got some classic moves here - mix brights with black, white and neutrals and you'll keep your ensemble looking fresh, groomed and graphic. A cheeky clashing accesory like her neon yellow sandals by Stuart Weitzman or the emerald green sunnies below add a savvy wink - just to remind us that, although it works perfectly, this ain't style-by-numbers. This girl's inimitable.
