Whether she’s walking around New York City in a pair of loose trackies and Nike trainers with her hair in a ponytail or sitting front row at Fashion Week in head-to-toe designer, blogger Olivia Palermo is our ultimate style icon!

Most know Olivia from her role in ‘The City’ as the elegant, stylish, antagonist and socialite who “lived in her own exclusive world”. She starred alongside the likes of Whitney Port and Louise Roe in the reality show. But these days, Olivia Palermo has made a name for herself as a talented style blogger, and with good reason.

Olivia Palermo has her own collection in multiple stores and is the face of campaigns for brands such as Mango and Coast, as well as working as a brand ambassador for some of the globe’s most luxurious labels. She manages all this while also sitting front row at most fashion shows. Always looking perfectly polished, Olivia’s looks are always listed amongst those fabled ‘best dressed’ lists. The darling of the fashion show world never fails to make a style statement when she steps out and has carved a name for herself among the style elites.

Some of her simplest styles have given an abundance of wardrobe inspiration for our next night out.
