Did you watch the premiere of The City season 2 this week? I’m really happy that Olivia Palermo stuck around. Not only is she constantly followed by delicious drama that I can’t get enough of, she is also has some serious style. Her look always features the distinctive mark of high fashion, yet is wearable and practical for everyday situations.
I absolutely love how Olivia puts a textured red cardigan over a simple black dress. It not only adds a great texture contrast to the look, but can also tone down a revealing dress without sacrificing style. The red element is echoed through the use of shiny red shoes. Be sure to choose a darker, sophisticated shade of red if you worried about looking like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.
Throw a skinny belt over the cardi to give the outfit more structure. Finish with a beige, nude or brown handbag, which stands out nicely from the rest of the color palette without creating an overwhelming effect.
