Sometimes finding random designer bargains is the easy part- it's putting them together to make paparazzi-snap-worthy outfit that is the issue! Copying a celebrity look needn't be too difficult though; all you need it the right mix of high-street and high-end discounts..........Today's style inspiration comes from the ethereal Olivia Palermo.
Let's face it, this model and fashion expert could make a bin bag look like a YSL gown , but her simple approach to looking fabulous means that the human among us can at least give it a go!
a. This Pepe Jeans India black coat is on sale at under £95 at the moment. Black faux fur like this never goes out of style and proves that black doesn't have to be boring.
b. The coat is expensive, so save on the leggings by picking up this panelled topshop pair, £22
c. Nude pumps are essential. They just are. Don't question me on this one. Aldo's Ostlie nude flats are down to £24.95 at the moment too, what more do you want?!
d. I think bags are THE accessory to invest in- a cheap looking bag can ruin an entire outfit and won't last long. It's false economy. This gorgeous House of Harlow 1960 Lara Clutch certainly won't let you down. Tan is really versatile and the simple, clean lines would look fantastic tucked under your furry arm! It's £140. That is a lot, I get that - but one beautifully craft piece is far better than ten awful Primark creations.
e. I genuinely think Olivia would wear these Diane Von Furstenberg sunglasses. Very Jackie O and, again, tortoiseshell will go with most of your existing wardrobe! At a mere £24.99 they are my pick of the day!
Finish with a slick of pillar box red nail varnish and a couple of gold bracelets .......and you have an outfit fit for the front row.
