London Fashion Week SS 2013...Olivia

Olivia Palermo, after Antonio Berardi, London, September 2012.

Even though Olivia is a celebrity, I think this look is wearable "in real life" (not sure how else to put it!): a leather skirt (choose a shape that flatters your body shape), simple sweater, white ankle-strap pumps (maybe leave off the ankle strap if your ankles are more cankle than ankle), a neat clutch and finished off with a belt folded over to look like a bow.

Recreate Olivia's look (kind of):

Reiss Barrett Olive midi leather skirt (I think this is the same one Olivia has on), Burberry London pleated leather skirt, Yves Saint Laurent caramel A-line skirt, Yigal Azrouel Lamb leather skirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim textured leather skirt or ASOS oxblood red pencil skirt

Nicholas Amore white cap toe pumps, ASOS Perry pointed heels with toe caps, or 3.1 Phillip Lim Ava d'Orsay pumps (if you are a bit wary of an all-white pump, these are a great alternative. The cut and two-tone makes them a little less confronting for the white shoe novice ;)


  1. Love Olivia's look ... the ankle strap pumps are soooo pretty!

  2. I love her! I just can't get enough of her!!!

  3. She looks very beautiful and yes, she is wearing Reiss skirt (according to Reiss PR). x

  4. great look!!!

  5. love this look, she is so consistently on point! and i'm definitely loving those ankle straps!


  6. Lovely outfit, and like you said very wearable! I like the way she's tied her belt :)

  7. @monkeyshines - she always looks so good, doesn't she!

    @Nina P- I love them too....just a little difficult to wear if you don't have skinny ankles I think

    @Little Rus - thanks so much for confirming!

    @Viktoria and @far and wild jewelry - yes, agreed. She also doesn't look like she has just raided somebody else's wardrobe.

    @mica - it is sweet isn't it - almost like a bow!

  8. Olivia is simply amazing! I admire her!
    Love from India
