Olivia Palermo Rocks The Double Slit Skirt & Perfectly Nails Winter Nudes — PHOTOS
If there was one thing I remember about Olivia Palermo in The City, it's that she always looked on point, no matter where their adventures took them. Evidently, that trend has continued — Olivia Palermo wore a double slit skirt and matching top at the Audemars Piguet's Rodeo Drive boutique opening in Beverly Hills. And as per usual, she looked so chic and polished.
If you're not familiar with Palermo, she was the fashionista character in The City, with Whitney Port. Palermo worked in the PR department of Diane von Furstenburg at the time and eventually, moved to the accessories department at ELLE. Basically, for 16 year old me, she was the definition of #goals. She slayed every outfit, and worked at a fashion magazine.
But beyond her appearances in the MTV show, she signed onto Wilhelmina Models, and has even starred in the covers of ELLE Mexico, Tatler, ASOS Magazine, and Marie Claire UK. Since then, she's appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway, and has even created her own website, where she blogs about fashion and beauty. Basically, she's my ultimate style crush.
From ripped denim, to camel coats, to white midi dresses, Palermo's style can only be described as feminine chic. She also isn't afraid to play with different silhouettes, going for some off-the-shoulder looks, to patterned mini dresses, to looser, more menswear-inspired pantsuits. Whatever she's in, it always just works.
And at the boutique opening, her matching blouse and double slit skirt was an absolute killer. To accessorize, Palermo went with a statement clutch and bracelet, and left her hair in loose waves. With a slight smoky eye and natural lips, she looked like pure perfection.
Why go with one slit, when you can go with two? Below, check out some of my favorite double slit pieces that will definitely have heads turning.
