Olivia Palermo’s style

07Apr10

OUR guest on the Today I’m Wearing page this month (see what she is wearing today, here), Olivia Palermo is fast becoming one of the world’s most watched fashionistas. Here she tells us first-hand about her biggest style issues:

“Fashion is something that interests me on a daily basis – it started when I would see my mother and aunt get dressed up and go out at night in the city.”

How do you decide what to wear every day?

When I get dressed in the morning, I think about versatility – and I’d be lying if I said the weather wasn’t a factor. I love layered looks using vests or jackets, but sometimes I feel my best in a great pair of jeans and a fabulous T-shirt.

Who, if anybody, has an influence on your style – or whose style do you admire?

I love the way Scott Schuman captures off-the-cuff street style. It’s raw and natural and fits my aesthetic. Menswear always has an influence on me and I think that’s down to Coco Chanel – I think many women are influenced by her imprint on fashion.

What are you style essentials – what couldn’t you live without?

I can’t live without my YSL Tribute heels and my Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Everybody thinks it’s the clothing that makes an outfit, but more often than not it’s the accessories.

  1. Well.. I do say: All of those sunglasses I would wear at one point or another. Great collation of the era that we are currently musing over…

  2. wiate whoops. Did I say sunglasses? Sori… I meant: *embarassed* I really like Olivia’s style and I hate how the media portrays her as a 1 dimensional she-devil. So she has ambition, so what?
