Olivia Palermo is one of the savviest stylers we know. So who better to look to for some tips on how to give an outfit a high-fashion edge in an instant?
Speaking to Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, the 28-year-old style icon shared her top styling tips to help us all get a little better at dressing to make an impact.
‘Take a razor blade to a sweater if it’s bobbling – it takes the balls off,’ Olivia said.
‘Double-sided tape is also one of my favourites – if you’re out and your hem rips then you can do a little fix to it.’
Noted. What about accessories? ‘Keep some long thread with you – it’s really good in case a necklace breaks.’
‘Oh, and if you want to roll your sleeves up and they won’t stay, push them up with very thin hair elastics.’ Okay.
Ms Palermo also revealed an unhealthy obsession with one accessory in particular…
‘I have endless skinny belts,’ Olivia admitted. ‘My favourite ones are from Whistles and Reiss, actually. There is always a place for a big belt, but sometimes when you’re layering pieces you need to hide the belt and a skinny one does just that.’
And there you have it. We’ll all be channelling effortless Palermo cool in no time…
