Olivia Palermo's Style

This week I have been really evaluating my sense of style. I like to try different looks and trends, but when it comes down to it, I have very feminine style. No matter how much I wish I dressed like Alexa Chung, Chloe Sevigny, or Kate Moss, my innate style is most like Olivia Palermo. I never realized how much I relate to her fashion choices till I browsed through my inspiration files and found picture after picture of her amazing looks. Olivia dresses classic and feminine. She isn't afraid to mix high and low pieces together. She always has an "it" piece for the season and then buys items from stores like Topshop, Asos, and Shopbop. When she splurges, it is on something beautiful and timeless. She also wears flats during the day, which I feel is incredibly chic and practical. I feel confident in saying she is my style icon.

Check out her makeup here and apartment here.

I agree with your love for her style. She always looks so classicly chic and unlike many celebrities will wear pieces over and over again, handbags and shoes being prime examples. I love how she always looks so polished and pretty, even if wearing just a striped T and skirt.
Have a lovely weekend.

Palermo is always perfectly dressed - I would love to raid her closet. Already obsessed with the bright red/orange blouse above.

She always looks so polished and pretty!
She knows how to mix basics from Topshop and H&M with designer items :)
I took some pics oh her during Paris Fashion Week, she was so nice and really beautiful!

Gosh, I love Olivia's style. Her feminine looks are so perfectly put together, and I agree, she is totally practical when it comes to those flats! I can never get over her attitude on The City, though! I really hope it's just for the show (although, I'm sure it is!).

I love the way Olivia Palermo dresses- her looks always so chic. the different parts of her outfits are often very eclectic, yet she manages to pull them together as if the items were made to be worn together. my favorite photo is the top middle one. love that!

O.P.'s style is chic beyond words! I only noticed her in mags and online before I knew she was on The City. Caught one episode and I decided I'd much prefer to just admire her in pictures since she seemed so gracious and impeccable in photos. I can't figure out how the girl affords her wardrobe though. But I do love that most of her looks see attainable or re-creatable with some basics + one standout piece. Love the round-up.

The girl is definitely cray-cray, but her style makes up for it! I adore her makeup too - I'll definitely be trying this one out this weekend :)

I am glad you pointed out the flats during the day. It is so practical, and I feel like most celebrities don't do it. I remember Tinsley Mortimer saying once that she refused to wear flats, and I remember thinking "How is that possible?" I work in the the city and walk a lot and can't imagine dodging potholes in heels.

Have a great weekend!

she really does seem so sweet and cute, but she was a witch on the city show.

mituKatie said...

I agree she is so chic and pulled together! She really knows what she is doing. I hope she is nicer in real life than on the city!

Beautygirl24 said...

Agree, agree! No matter how much I want my style to be a bit more "edgy", I can't seem to bring myself to wear a lot of things that many bloggers look amazing wearing. I just look silly! This is because it's just not me. Olivia's style definitely is though =) Classic and girly, two words that I can relate to!

Style_Pursuit said...

I've got all these pics saved in my Inspirational Folder, but the truth is that no matter how hard I try, I'll never be as stylish as she is... I'm madly in love with her style, though! :o)

I agree she always looks dressed to a T. What do u think of the new haircut? I posted her apt if you want to check it out.

emily//the lesser panda said...

She really does have impeccable style! But she also has a way bigger budget for her wardrobe than the rest of us!

Rachael said...

I agree! She always looks chic and flawless with looking like she tried too hard. Her outfits look tied together, never messy and she makes every piece look high-end.

Lainey said...

I agree with you wholeheartedly. She is my everything when it comes to style. Yes, I love dressing tough, and rock and roll and boho-but when it comes down to it...Olivia will always be my number one inspiration. I love how were on the exact same page, especially lately. I just featured her in my most recent blog post. :) She should really come out with a style book.

Alicia said...

Olivia always looks so put together! I absolutely love her girly / chic style and I'm glad you linked back to how she does her makeup and her apartment - so fun to see where she lives!!

Katie said...

She definitely has the personality of a door knob, but her style is to die for.

You and I are kindred spirits, truly! I have an "Olivia inspiration" file, filled with her outfits. I too am very girly :)

I love your style, lovely lady -- you always inspire! Thank you for that, as well as your kindness. You are one of the most kind bloggers that I have "met" here!

Have a fantastic weekend,

I couldn't agree more with you about Olivia's style I LOVE her. I've seen her several times at NYFW now and she's just as gorgeous, if not even more so, in person. She always looks so put together and the best part? it all comes across as effortless.

Ana said...

I feel guilty liking her style, cause of her attitude on The City, but hey you can't deny that the girl has style.

Kate said...

Hey Taylor, I caught your video clip of Olivia Polermo on your tumblr. I'll must admit I've developed a bit of a girl crush on Ms. Olivia--she's got style!

Taylor Sterling said...

Right Kate! She is pretty lovely!
