Olivia Palermo Gives The Black Blazer A Modern Makeover

Olivia Palermo is never one to keep her look low-key, one of the many reasons why we love her, and this stunning look is no exception.

Taking the much-loved black blazer, and transforming it into an all-together more desirable piece, Miss Palermo has inspired us to do the same, and reinvent this old classic for ourselves. And we are just a little bit excited about it.

Seen soaking up the Parisian atmosphere with new husband, Johannes Huebl – who looks equally dapper in a double breasted blazer of his own – the stylish New Yorker shared her top-tips on this simple transformation via her online style site.

So as we beging to dig out our trusty blazer’s, usually reserved for fail-safe, smart workwear and other mundane occasions, take inspiration from this stylish 28-year-old and wear yours like an LBD.

We’re big fans of the double-breasted, longline style as worn by Olvia, and think adding a simple black slip underneath (to add some much-needed length) and some strappy sandals will update this staple in seconds.

Just add a low ponytail and a slick of red lipstick for a Parisian-inspired, Palermo look. Or why not keep it casual and opt for pointed flats and a top-handle tote for the office?

Whichever way you choose to wear it, we reckon this simple style will look anything but boring…
