Olivia Palermo’s Preppy Peplum Is Our New Style Crush

Olivia Palermo’s off-duty look has made us seriously rethink our weekend wardrobes. Incorporating numerous trends into her Saturday style (slashed-knee denim, Breton stripes and a colour-pop tote can all be ticked off), Olivia manages to make a fashion statement while remaining effortlessly super-chic. Sigh.

Breton tops are having a moment once again, but our fave New York styleista mixes things up via her preppy peplum jacket with cute open-collar detail. While this frilled-hem trend has been creeping up on our sartorial radars for a while, we predict it’s about to go viral – luckily we’ve spotted some high-street cover-ups to help you follow OP’s trendsetting lead. Free People’s peplum snap-collar jacket is the perfect partner for denim, while French Connection’s tailored stripy superstar can be dressed up or down – and it’s on sale!

There’s also a whole lot of floral, print and pastel pieces available at high-street hotspots such as Topshop and River Island. Just remember to balance the volume by opting for sleeker silhouettes on the bottom, like Olivia, et voila! The perfect peplum style is yours. Do it now…
