The New Way Olivia Palermo is Wearing Black on Black

To put it simply, Olivia Palermo is our style goddess (and even that is an underestimate). Olivia is the ultimate tastemaker in every sense of the word and not surprisingly, we are always interested in her style—past and present.

Today, we’re lusting for Olivia’s black on black outfit that’s mostly polished with a bit risqué. So, how exactly does Olivia wear this ephemerally chic and dark hue without looking…well gothic?

Keep reading to see how she does it. Then, go a step further to shop our favorite picks to recreate the look.

THE HAIR LOOK

To offset the dark hue, the Palermo teams her a-line black skirt with a simple black blouse and added a leather trimmed cashmere jacket. The leather on the jacket adds an element of dimension and color.  Olivia, as always, keeps her accessories simple—wearing only a pair of non-statement making glasses, a royal blue fur bag, all gold watch and hair wigs pulled back into a loose bun. Her scarlet red nails add an element of playfulness to the look à la the tastemakers own personality.
