In case you haven't heard, fashion's favorite It Girl is starting her own fashion house! OK, OK, I'm getting carried away. In a feature for Net-A-Porter's online magazine The Edit, Olivia Palermo said she'll start a fashion line — just not right now. And while I am a little disappointed that the budding fashion icon's line isn't being released, like, tomorrow, I am excitedly speculating what we might see in it.
Palermo is one of my fashion icons (well, me and the rest of the world), and I really can't think of a time when I haven't been thrilled with her outfit choice. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to her ensembles because they are always. On. Point. Even though her closet is slightly — scratch that, wildly — more expensive than mine, I love drawing inspiration from her.
Although she goes for high-end pieces and is obviously incredibly chic, what I love about Palermo is that she makes fashion look accessible. Yes, she's grown up as a real-life Gossip Girl in Manhattan's elite circles, but you don't see her permanently in sunglasses with pursed lips. She smiles. She looks like she enjoys herself. And it's apparent that she wears the clothes she picks out — not the other way around.
So while I eagerly await Olivia Palermo's future fashion house, I'm looking back at a few of her best outfits and trying to figure out what elements of her style might shine in her line. Here's what I'm predicting:
Vests on Vests on Vests
My love of vests has been well-documented, but Olivia Palermo is the queen of this outerwear, especially fur ones.
Speaking of fur, Palermo is all about texture play — I think it's one of the things that makes her outfits so incredible. She mixes textured pieces like a BOSS.
No one layers like Palermo does. As a big proponent of layering, I bow to you, Olivia.
In Palermo's fashion house, all prints will be mixable — at least, that's what I'm hoping. I definitely need some hand-holding in the pattern mixing department, and I would trust Palermo wholeheartedly.
Pieces With Color
Although she can work a black-on-black ensemble like nobody's business, Palermo inspires me to wear pops of color more than anyone else — especially orange. Thank you for brightening my wardrobe, Olivia.
If there's anyone who has a strong belt game, it's Palermo.
