Take Two! — Olivia's Beachwear Actually Doubles as Streetwear

If you're anything like us, then you've probably been wondering: where has Olivia Palermo been? Not to worry, we're making up for lost time with a double dose of the style star's sartorial prowess — her latest, perfect-for-resort looks. While vacationing with beau Johannes Huebl in St. Barts, Miss Palermo showed off two unexpectedly chic beach ensembles, making use of a day-to-night maxi, a staple white blouse, and a ladylike pleated skirt. Consider this the most versatile of vacation style, the kind that makes use of pieces that you could wear at home (and practically year-round) as well. Rather than spend on paisley tunics or sarongs that have that beach-exclusive feel, Olivia's pieces go from the sand to the city without a lot of hard work — we're breaking it all down (and giving you the key pieces) right here:

  • The chiffon maxi: Believe it or not, Olivia's luxe-looking snake-print maxi is also a wise investment. This piece looks breezy layered up over a bikini and finished with sandals (as Miss Palermo clearly proves), but the length and fabric are also begging to be layered with more substantive pieces. Add a black slip underneath, black tights, ankle boots, and a furry vest and you've got a glam look you could wear right now (and not at the beach).
  • The easy button-down and skirt: We probably don't have to tell you why these pieces are so versatile on the main land — each of these is a closet staple that's easy to dress up or down, and warm up with jeans or tights. Olivia's take shows us the other side: how these wardrobe mainstays double as beachy cover-ups. Because of their lightweight fabrics and bright hues, they're easy to transform with other, more Resort-feeling accents. Want to take your button-down and mini to the beach? Just do as Olivia does and add in a pair of shades, a raffia tote, and metallic flip-flops to give them a laid-back feel that will match your vacation destination.
