Olivia Palermo Wore That Burberry Blanket Out In Public, Obviously Looks Fab Instead Of Frumpy
Since her time as resident Mean Girl on The City came to an end, Olivia Palermo has been busy getting married and being a bona fide style star. Confession: I've never seen The City — what kind of fashion girl am I? — so I never actually disliked Palermo. But even if I did, I'm sure I would have warmed toward her by now. I mean, Olivia Palermo wore a blanket and made it stylish. Who else could do that?
Palermo showed us how the pre-fall poncho is done when she stepped out in a monogrammed Burberry version on the streets of NYC, similar to the one worn by Cara Delevingne on the runway — It girls, unite! The future shoe designer paired her "OP" emblazoned designer blanket with teensy tailored shorts, a plaid button-down, and thigh-high boots. She capped off the look with a messy dirty blonde ponytail and polished Carolina Herrera handbag.
Her take made wearing a designer blanket seem downright sexy. I blame the thigh-high boots. But seriously, Palermo really pulls off the poncho look here. I'm actually amazed at how low-key and cute she is in this outfit, when ponchos tend to give the wearer a bag-like appearance. I guess the key is balancing silhouettes. Oh, and having legs like Palermo's.
