American socialite, fashion influencer and recent clothing designer launching her namesake brand, Olivia Palermo, is one of those special kind of fashion celebrity that is truly an original tastemaker that really understands the language of creating a recognizable style and brand. I’ve admired her fashion style for a very long time and I am thrilled to showcase her and the three essentials that form the basis of her brand; well coordinated separates, spectacular coats and designer shoes.
The Queen of Separates
Olivia has an amazing way of mixing pieces to create an outfit that always feels original and fresh. She always looks luxe, mixing high quality pieces and accessories. She doesn’t miss an opportunity to really tie her look together with the perfect belt, stackable bracelets, maybe a pair of sunglasses, a designer handbag, the list goes on and on. When I see her, I always admire her attention to detail.
What I also really love is the way she mixes the right shade of color, specifically tone (they way her color choices harmonize together), with her pairings. Take a look at the images above, a beautiful shade of milk chocolate knit sweater paired with a navy tweed skirt; a rust color body fitting semi turtleneck with a bright orange wool skirt paired perfectly with pale grey boots and a deep Bordeaux faux crocodile embossed skinny belt to pull the look together.

The Statement Coat
For a New Yorker, outerwear is very much an essential and having a variety of coats and jackets is important. I’ve written about the top 5 coats a woman should own in her wardrobe and Olivia is not an exception, the girl has all my suggestions and more to choose from. She certainly doesn’t do boring when it’s cold and miserable outside and she clearly goes for it, her collection of outerwear is eye-catching. I always recommend, when you see a special piece, and you love it, add it to your collection. Get the very best you can afford, quality over quantity, that will last a long time and will always pair beautifully with your other quality pieces.

The Shoe Collection Dreams are Made Of
The girl loves her shoes and she doesn’t do boring either. Low heels, such as a ballerina flat or a pair of Brogues, when walking around New York; heels for anything else after, her shoe stye is classic with a modern twist.
