Olivia Palermo’s Summer Style

Olivia Palermo's Summer Style

Olivia Palermo has fully embodied all the charms of summer, as she has let the breezy, warm-weather mood inform her off-duty style over this past week.

Look 1: While in New York City on Monday (July 20), Olivia returned to her love of boho chic in a Tularosa printed top and skirt, paired with Pretty Ballerinas ‘Montreal’ snake flats, Fendi sunglasses, and the Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ satchel. It’s a sweetly feminine look, and I love the pop of the intense marigold bag.

Look 2: Debuting a sleek take on the halter jumpsuit while taking a helicopter flight from the East 34th Street Heliport on Friday (July 24) in New York City, she wore a Lovers + Friends white one-piece with cutouts and a belted waist that quietly referenced throwback disco glamour in a thoroughly modern package. When accessorized with Francesco Russo sandals and cobalt-rimmed shades, the look was nothing short of effortlessly cool, calm, and collected.

Look 3: On Monday (July 27), she and her husband, Johannes Huebl, enjoyed a day of fun in the sun in Ibiza, Spain. Apropos then that her summer travel style included a Le Sirenuse x J Crew swimsuit, inspired by the laidback, sun-kissed culture of Le Sirenuse Hotel on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The electric-blue accents on the swimsuit are what caught my eye, but what really makes the look sing are her accessories, including Dior ‘So Electric’ sunglasses, a floppy hat, and a white lace caftan.

Celebrities Love…Culottes

Celebrities Love Culottes

The culottes club is rapidly growing in membership, adding new converts nearly every day who are strutting out chic looks in praise of the pants.

An underlying trend on the scene for more than a year, it’s safe to say that the voluminous, wide-legged trousers have found their footing amongst a flock of style darlings who have been none too shy in taking them for a spin.

Something of an acquired taste for many, culottes are all about the right proportions and sharp, clean tailoring, which is worth its weight in gold when it comes to this modern version of a midi.

Even bright magenta culottes can achieve sophisticated standards, as Keke Palmer shows in her Solace London ensemble, where she wears the high-waisted, structured pants with a simple cropped top for a look that’s packed with panache.

Playing with pattern instead of colour, Ashley Madekwe wore a Self-Portrait pair that boasted slightly less volume but no less boldness in the checquerboard print and the cutout, asymmetrical top.

An even breezier rendition, Alicia Vikander’s Rosetta Getty look displayed the ultimate in simple, feminine elegance—with a mod edge.

Are you convinced by these culottes?

Celebrities Love…Max Mara’s Whitney Bag

Celebrities Love Max Mara's Whitney Bag

Architecture, art, and fashion frequently collide, and such fusion is quite literally the case in the latest celebrity handbag crush.

The Max Mara ‘Whitney’ top handle tote is nothing short of museum quality, serving as not only arm candy but also arm architecture. Max Mara teamed with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop to create the bag that is directly inspired by the sleek, sophisticated design of the new Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.

The formal, structured piece, which reflects the modern, ribbed museum building, still easily transitions from cocktail party to casual off-duty style for the utmost versatility. Sarah Jessica Parker, Gigi Hadid, and Karlie Kloss have all been spotted carrying the bag, which carves out a signature, appropriate niche amongst both stiletto and sneaker ensembles.

The ‘Whitney’ is currently available in three colours including black, tan, and bordeaux, plus what was an exclusive collector’s limited-edition, light blue-grey hue that likewise mirrored the museum’s façade.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum In Solace London – Buick ’24 Hours Of Happiness’ Test Drive Launch Event

Jenna Dewan-Tatum In Solace London - Buick '24 Hours Of Happiness' Test Drive Launch Event

Jenna Dewan-Tatum made a bright entrance at the Buick ’24 Hours of Happiness’ test drive launch event, hosted at the Ace Museum on Wednesday (July 22) in Los Angeles, California.

Showing off a sleek fusion of seductive yet contemporary femininity, she wore a Solace London Spring 2015 dress styled with embellished white sandals.

The simple allure of the look was undeniable, plus I loved the boldly vibrant orange hue mixed with her cherry-red lip.

Even if the plunge neckline was just on the brink of being too deep, she managed it well.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ London Photocall

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 'The Man From UNCLE
Alicia Vikander attended ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ photocall at Claridge’s Hotel in London, England on Thursday (July 23).

The actress and new face of Louis Vuitton hasn’t been wearing the label exclusively but she did return to it this time around, donning a dress from the Fall 2015 collection.

I didn’t love this look on the runway, and my affection didn’t exactly grow seeing it on Alicia.

While the black darts and zipper detail cut through the more precious satiny lace with a sporty edge, they created an unflattering shape at the bust.

In combination with the black heels, it all seemed strangely ageing to the young Swedish beauty—even if the colour itself was lovely on her.
