4 Times OP’s Outerwear Slayed Our Lives

When does Olivia Palermo not slay our lives? Seriously, this woman never looks bad. She even walks her dog dressed like a goddess. Every time she steps out on the streets her outfit is flawless and trend setting.

My whole Pinterest is pretty much filled with Olivia’s outfits; you may say that I’m one of her biggest fans (or stalkers). If I could be anyone in this world, I would hands down be Olivia Palermo.

Since I am obsessed with outwear, I decided to look to my queen OP for some of the best outwear pieces worn. Notice the uniqueness in each outerwear piece she wears and also how she ties it in with the rest of her outfit. Olivia is not the kind of woman that owns one black coat for inclement weather, no no, she uses her outwear as a statement. And for this Olivia, we thank you.

She employs the stripes on stripes look which is a statement in itself, and then tops the look off with an eye-catching floral print on her blazer. The embroidery really stands out in this look, even though she is wearing all patterns, because she keeps her pants and blouse monochrome. Added tip: wear your jacket, coat, or blazer like a cape (as Olivia is doing in the picture). This little trick gives your outerwear a whole new look and also makes it appear that you’re stylish. Anyone can put their arms through a coat, but those who chose to wear the coat as a cape are the real winners. Palermo is a pattern mixing master and her outerwear takes this look to a whole new level.


op12. Floral fur in Winter. I am loving it! I wish more people would do darker floral patterns on Winter clothing items. This coat is everything: great cut, prefect structure, and a statement pattern while also sticking to neutral colors that make the coat very versatile. I love how Olivia chose to wear a neck scarf and add a pop of gold to the outfit. Once again, her pattern mixing skills shine. Try pairing a little gold accent with a dark blue coat or sweater this winter!


op23. A dream in olive green. Olive is such a great color for winter, I would consider it more of a neutral color, as you can pair it with anything. This coat is beautiful with its pink trim and big gold buttons. I also love the sleeves and the deep side pockets that make it stand out from coats that have a similar cut. Olivia chooses to wear a white turtle neck dress and black boots, allowing her coat to be the focus piece of her outfit. Lastly, she highlights her coat’s unique trim by pairing it with a handbag of a similar color.



4. Olivia Palermo is starting a fashion military in this coat and you better bet that I will be the first one to sign up for it. I love the bronze buttons and the red accents on this coat. Again, this is a statement coat; however, it could easily be worn with many things. She highlights the coat by wearing all black underneath so that we are able to see the subtle contrast of navy. Military structured clothing is coming back and Olivia is leading the army with this gorgeous look.

I am a 21-year-old from Tulsa that is engulfed in a world of fashion. From modeling, styling, and writing about fashion I can say that I have lots of knowledge concerning the fashion industry. I am continuing to follow my passion of fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles, and plan to graduate December of 2018. I have big dreams of making my mark on the fashion industry. Eventually I hope my career allows me to live in Manhattan working in the industry that I love, and giving me the opportunity to travel the world for fashion weeks and other fashion related ventures.
