When it comes to red carpet dressing, Olivia Palermo pulls out all the stops when it comes to her accessories. She isn’t afraid to take risks when others would play it safe and that is why she is one of my style inspirations.
At the New York Screening of “W.E.”, she rocked a Giorgio Armani dress and layered a black fur vest from Haute Hippie over it, mixing textures but keeping the color palette neutral. Where she went for color was in her accessories: Manolo Blahnik’s Something Blue Satin Pumps and Mulberry’s Conker Suede Bayswater Clutch. I would never think to mix black, cobalt blue and burgundy, but Olivia gets it right. She also ups the luxury ante with these accessories as well as an expert blend of textures: fur, satin, suede, chiffon: the possibilities are endless.
You might remember these beautiful shoes from the first Sex and the City film and they have lost none of their appeal. I am a bit too clumsy to rock bright-colored satin, but if you do choose to splurge on the Something Blue Satin Pumps ($945), you will have a cherished style that you can wear forever.
The Conker Suede Bayswater Clutch ($550) is in the perfect shade for the season. Doubling as both a shoulder bag and a clutch, there is no way that you can go wrong with this piece. Wear it with your favorite LBD or colorblock with kelly green or yellow.
