Olivia Palermo

Monday, July 30, 2012

Behold the darling connoisseur of style, we first discovered Olivia Palermo as one of the casts in The City. As a socialite, model, fashion/lifestyle blogger, and actress - we must admit - it’s the chic fashion sense that makes us truly adore her. 
One of the things we love best about Olivia's style is that we actually see her repurposing wardrobe staples. Behind the street style snapshots, there is the same beautiful bag, jacket, or pair of shoes — the fabulous contents of her closet reworked into one amazing ensemble after the next. 
We suggest investing on tailored pantsuits featuring a structured jacket and cropped length slim pants. Dress it up with a pussy bow blouse ala Olivia or wear the jacket separately with shorts and T-shirt for a chic Casual Friday ensemble.
In her closet: Diane von Furstenberg, BCBG, to Zara, COS, Topshop
We observed that Olivia wears a lot of our go-to high street brands too, but it’s her luxe collection of shoes, bags, and accessories that takes her outfits to the next level.
Investment lesson: learned.
Iconic look: Layering! Opt for a light coat, draped blazer, or cardigan to add interest in any outfit.
Key accessory: Emphasize your hourglass silhouette for a timeless ladylike appeal - for those in the know, belt is your ultimate weapon to cinch up a tiny waist amidst all the layering drama.

Style Muse
Miranda Kerr

Friday, July 6, 2012

Can we be the only ones whose heartbeat race faster every time we spot Miranda Kerr on a Victoria’s Secret fashion show?
Oh, maybe secretly we've all got a little girl-crush situation on her: a super enviable toned bod (even post-pregnancy!), check. Orlando Bloom as a hunky hubby, check! The cutest baby ever, check! An uber-cool fashion style, check! We especially adore how she mixes polished pieces with laid-back essentials, this Australian bombshell makes daily dressing up look almost too easy!
In her closet: Balenciaga, Michael Kors, and of course Victoria’s Secret
Iconic look: Off duty chic
Key accessory: A sleek hold-all and ankle grazer skinny jeans to run errands in comfort and style.

A few points of learning from this model mummy's effortless fashion sense: invest in foolproof neutrals as your solid foundation in building your power wardrobe, sunglasses are a must-have to keep cool in the heat of summer, and always seek to achieve that long and lean silhouette with almond or pointy toed shoes.
 Take a cue from Miranda's urban smart look with Matthew Williamson's vivid vermillion sunglasses made edgier with the studded temple design. Bicolour Victoria Beckham tank top under Day Birger's Embellished Waistcoat for a subtle hint of texture; paired with Dolce & Gabbana dusty pink slim jeans as the hottest summer denim staple. Complete the almost-monotone slimming effect with a finishing lift from Christian Louboutin Pigalle Jazz Calf pumps. Last but not least, grab attention with Chloe Medium Paraty Bag in a bursting charm of orange mecanic hue.
