Style Crush: Olivia Palermo

Okay so recently I've been going on Pinterest a lot more (probably a little too much - but lets overlook that) and I've been 'pinning' a lot of fashion inspiration particularly street style… particularly Olivia Palermo's street style.

This is definitely one of those 'how does she do it' moments - as in how does she make a simple jeans and shirt outfit look so, well, for better words chic !!?

Prepared to be amazed and left in wonder to why you've never been able to make an plain shirt and jeans outfit look quite so good. Along with the white collarless shirt and ripped jeans she added a gorgeous pair of red heels to add a pop of colour. 

style tip: when wearing a simple outfit aka jeans and white t-shirt/shirt always try to have a 'stand out' item to really bring the outfit together - maybe a patterned pair of shoes or a statement neckless. It just adds that extra 'oomph'.

For this second outfit I have been dying over it ever since she wore it last year. I am absolutely obsessed with the monogrammed blanket cape from burberry that many 'women in fashion' were caught wearing last year such as Blake Lively, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rosie Huntington-whiteley. Just see for yourself…

Next of my favourite looks is again a very simple outfit - the classic double denim ensemble. It has also got me wanting to repurchase a denim skirt! Paired with some simple nude strappy heels and a black belt to break up the denim a little this a must have look in any OP wanna be wardrobe.

For this look we have some strong Pocahontas vibes… but I'm totally loving it! I have been loving anything suede at the moment so its no surprise that I've taken a liking to this super cool 'neutrals' outfit. 

I keep wanting to say 'this is my favourite' but it really is impossible for me to pick a favourite out of all her looks. Yet, if I were to pick a favourite this one would definitely be in the top three. Again, it is a very simple outfit, but sometimes you'll find the simpler the more effective. 

Still following on from the whole 'denim' vibes we have her next look that Ive actually searched the entire internet for with intentions of recreating the look. Its all left me still puzzled and questioning whether she has magic powers !? You can see here that after having the simple jeans and bardot shirt she's added a super colourful bag and shoes as her 'staple pieces'.

How do you feel about stripes ?? Well I'm obsessed with them (they're probably my favourite print) which is why I'm probably so in love with this next outfit I'm about to show. Vertical stripes are always found to be a very flattering print as they elongate and slim out your body. 

This next outfit was worn by Olivia to an event and its safe to say even without seeing the rest of the outfits worn by others I know she won best look. The Dior fall 2015 has the most gorgeous embroidery and in all honesty I don't quite have the words to describe just how much I love it.

So can we all agree that Olivia Palermo somehow manages to 'rock' every outfit she puts on. In fact I'm about to order a white shirt - not quite sure how my wardrobe lasted this long without one, haha!

So if you somehow weren't aware of the street style goddess; Olivia Palermo, have I got you worshipping her every outfit yet??

Are you more of a simple outfit kinda person or do you prefer more 'out-going' outfits ? comment below.
