Olivia’s Secret Summer Style Weapon? A Classic White Shirt

An elegant base.

Dressing for summer in the city can be a challenge. From heatwaves to overly air conditioned homes with a few summer storms sprinkled into the mix, striking the right balance between polished, casual, and comfortable is always tricky. However, Olivia has taken her cues from a familiar fashion icon. “Mrs. Herrera has always been refined and elegant, no matter the season,” says Olivia. “And at the heart of all her beautiful looks is a crisp, white shirt.”

Olivia let her bold LoveShackFancy skirt ("It's actually a dress, but I folded it to create dimension and volume," shares Olivia) do the talking in a vibrant, saturated shade of fuchsia. “It’s an instant mood booster,” says Olivia with a laugh. “Plus it’s light and breezy making it ideal for walking Mister Butler or running errands around town.” Amping up the prim vibes but with a city-friend edge were the little bits—Alberta Ferretti embellished mules and Boyy’s Buckle bag. “I love juxtaposing traditionally precious pieces with more lo-fi ones. It feels modern and fresh.” The final touch? A dusting of Olivia Palermo Beauty Soirée Eye Shadow paired with swashes of Olivia Palermo Beauty Chianti and Rosebud Matte Lipsticks for the perfect pucker. Below, team OP breaks down the secret sauce behind Olivia’s latest look.
