Dress Like Olivia Palermo in 5 Easy Steps, Amazing Wedding Shorts Not Included
Just when you thought another impromptu celebrity elopement was improbable, Mrs. Johannes Huebl, otherwise known as socialite and street style icon Olivia Palermo, announced the news of her joyous nuptials. The affair couldn't have been further from the highly publicized, glamorous affair Palermo's public expected based on her recent interview with Brides magazine, but one thing which surprised no one was her insouciant bridal ensemble.
As a fashion blogger, former Elle employee, and a celebrity spokeswoman for Tibi, Palermo certainly knows how to dress herself — and others — for success. The style expert loves to mix prints and patterns, favoring vintage-inspired silhouettes with a modern spin from pleated midi skirts to silk trousers, each accented with a signature belt and expertly mussed locks.
It makes sense, then, that Palermo should consistently appear in expertly styled ensembles with pieces by Tibi mixed in. For a recent red carpet appearance at the Yves Saint Laurent film premiere in New York, Palermo paired the brand's Sonoran Eyelet Full Skirt with their Asphalt Stripe Cami and a gorgeous white blazer, polished off with a leopard belt and a pair very edgy Sergio Rossi heeled sandals. If you happen to have around $1,000 stashed in your savings for an occasion like this, you can replicate her ensemble from top to toes. However, if you're looking for a similar look on a smaller budget, read on for the five pieces you'll need to look just like Olivia.
1. EYELET MIDI SKIRT
Palermo's chic ensemble starts with an eyelet midi skirt. Zara Guipure Lace Pencil Skirt is a pretty mint shade that basically screams summertime.
2. SILK CAMISOLE
In order to keep focus on her statement skirt, Palermo's silk camisole complements the colors of her skirt but remains subtle. Achieve a similarly understated look with Haute Hippie's Lace Camisole.
3. LEOPARD BELT
A bold leopard print belt accentuates the waist and adds a pop of pattern to your ensemble. Merona's Leopard Print Skinny Belt incorporates just the right amount of unexpected glamour to an ensemble.
4. WHITE BLAZER
A white blazer adds casual finesse to a bold ensemble. Sparkle & Fade's Ponte Knit Blazer is both relaxed and elegant thanks to the combination of its fitted shape and cotton fabric.
5. PATTERNED HEELED SANDALS
Finish your look with a pair of patterned heels like Tibi's Amber Heel.
