Olivia Culpo Wears Midi Skirt & Crop Top Combo For A Revamped Holiday Look — PHOTOS
This week, the stylish elite and artistically inclined flocked to the sunshine state for the annual Art Basel fair in Miami Beach. While there were plenty of head turning outfits, actress and model Olivia Culpo’s midi skirt and shirt combo won the weekend. The former Miss Universe and my personal style crush was spotted at Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades exhibition in a chic black crop and a lattice-like skirt by Alexis Albina. While a black-and-white ensemble may seem risky for a Miami Beach soiree, the risk definitely paid off. In fact, Culpo’s head-to-toe black-and-white ensemble looked all the more striking when juxtaposed with the rest of the fashion crowd's bright colors and bold prints.
While Culpo’s covered-up look might have been a bit warm for the Miami heat, her sexy yet sophisticated outfit was sheer holiday party perfection. The way she balanced a conservative hemline with peek-a-boo skin around her waist and ankles was respectful enough for a family gathering and flirty enough for a good ol’ GNO. While Culpo’s black-and-white number stole the show, she had a bevy of notable looks from her weekend down south. From a sultry white dress, over the knee boots, and my personal favorite, an orange flared skirt, her style was on point. But then again, when isn’t it?
If it were up to me, and not my wallet, I would recreate all of Culpo’s looks from the weekend. But alas, that is just not the case. Scroll down to see how you can put together Culpo's black-and-white party look on a budget.
