If there’s anyone who personifies the word ‘fashionista,’ it has to be Olivia Palermo. So it’s only natural that the socialite has clenched the title yet again for 2014 after her win as Fashionista of 2013.
Jetsetting to all the major style capitals on the regular, she’s never far from a fashion gala or a front-row seat at Valentino, Christian Dior, Burberry Prorsum, and Marchesa shows, to name but a few.
Of course, her street style is on point too, as is a prerequisite for any fashionistas worth their salt, making Olivia’s closet the ultimate wish-list destination.
Her calling card may be boho-chic style, but she’s become a veritable chameleon, changing her fashion stripes on every occasion. She can just as easily wear an elegant gown as she can a grass-green, retro-inspired Valentino coat and shorts combo. She has even offered her own spin on prairie-girl-chic, artfully pairing a vintage brown leather skirt and crisp Ann Taylor white button-down shirt.
Yet what really makes Olivia’s style significant is her ability to impart her own interesting twist on every single one of her looks, often embellished with punchy accessories.
She really is a sort of master mixologist, creatively combining pieces and garnishing them with a bold clutch here, a snazzy shoe there, and always a dash of statement jewelry for good measure.
