Olivia Palermo… Whiteout

April 10, 2014

White On Black - Olivia Palermo

 

The essential elements are all there.

The addition of the white jacket to the all black changes it up… makes this simple but elegant look, perfect for the coming months.

The black pants and tee underneath are very flattering…. and admittedly we can’t all look like Olivia Palermo… but this style of dressing is very wearable at any age.

 

Add simple pumps or strappy booties

Wear the new season pointy-toed flat… and add a wide cuff bracelet or two.

 

I admit to loving this look… and will be wearing it over and over in the coming months.

Not new, not complicated… not adventurous… but sophisticated and à la mode.

  • I like it too..very chic and elegant but feels “modern”. I also like that you can easily add to it, scarf, jewelry, whatever or take away..either way its a winning look!

    I do love this look as well. It makes getting put together so much easier. The good basics have so much mixing possibilities. I really don’t like to shop. After many years I finally have found the cuts that work for me. You can never go wrong with black and white. There is always a way to make it your own. Thank you Vicki again for another dose of inspiration.

    Black and white. Classic. (I’ve just fallen in love with a pair of 90mm Manolo slides in nude… In my imaginary life, could I pair them with this outfit? If not, I’ll just go with all black. After all, I can’t be the only one who dresses from the (dream) shoes up…)

    I enjoy seeing your inspirations with new ways on how to wear black…as it’s the majority of what seem to wear; mixing and matching with other basics. Love this look.
