Olivia Palermo never ever puts a foot wrong and that applies whether she’s heading to a black tie dinner or simply out for a casual day of shopping. I’m all about winter layering a la Ms Palermo with lots of oversized coats and cosy knits in the equation. A pair of cropped black leather pants will be your best friend throughout winter as it goes with virtually anything and works for myriad occasions. It seems like sneakers are well and truly here to stay and a pair of high tops will take your sneaker game up a notch. This is cool casual with a touch of polish and it works beautifully.
Copy and paste the look into your own wardrobe with some of my top shopping picks below.
You’ll get plenty of wear out of a simple black coat so don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures whether it be a faux fur or a classic wool to give it a point of difference.
Cost knits are a wardrobe staple that will last season after season so stock up on lots of neutrals such as white, grey and cream to provide the perfect basics to build upon. There’s something really stylish about a simple turtleneck; it will instantly lend a touch of polish to your outfit.
Black pants are a no-brainer during winter. They’re versatile and can easily be dressed up or down and in a fabric such as leather they look very on point. Alternatively a pair of pants in a simple denim will work equally as well.
High top sneakers
Expand your sneaker repertoire with a pair of high tops. They act as a great counterbalance for a super feminine outfit due to their slightly tougher look and you’ll find they are surprisingly versatile and can go with most outfits you’d wear with your regular low-cut sneakers.
A simple leather shoulder bag in a tan or camel is one accessory that will definitely get plenty of use in your wardrobe. It also makes a nice change if you’re bored with your trusty black or brown bag.
