Olivia Palermo x Chelsea 28 Fall 2016 Collection

We’re excited to announce that today is the launch of the third installment of Olivia’s collection with Nordstrom’s in-house brand, Chelsea 28! Featuring 23 diverse yet complimentary separates – from plaid sailor culottes to tiered sleeve lace blouses – there are plenty of opportunities to mix and match to create an ensemble that reflects your personal style all the while remaining within Olivia’s chic and uber cool aesthetic.

“We loved mixing light, feminine elements such as ruffles and lace with leather and menswear-inspired tailored pieces,” said Palermo. “Fabrics like chiffon have a lot of movement and add an extra-pretty element – they give a romantic touch to the collection to balance the menswear styles.”

There are many standout pieces like the suede vest with detachable cape perfect for a brisk Fall day, leather dungarees and a black and gold pleated tiered maxi skirt, ideal for the holiday season. There’s also perfect everyday options too like a shoulder cutout ribbed sweater, several neck tie blouses in feminine prints and a pair of high rise flare jeans flattering for every body type. As OP already stated, there’s definitely a distinct play with fabrics that’s evident throughout the collection, more so than ever before. For example, soft cashmere and playful chiffons allow for layering options (like with heavier knits) to create a variety of silhouettes all of which have a distinct 70’s flare which is right on trend for Fall 2016.
