Olivia Palermo Never, Ever Got an Outfit Wrong in 2013

Dec 23 2013 - 11:00am

We watched her all year long and came to one conclusion: we've never seen Olivia Palermo in an outfit we didn't love — or wanted to re-create. In years past, we'd tune in to The City just to see what she'd wear, but this year, we got our style fix watching her front row at Fashion Weeks around the world, playing dress-up for Oscar de la Renta as the face of the designer's Outnet collection [1], and strolling the streets of New York City alongside beau Johannes Huebl. In every case, one thing holds true: we pretty much want everything she's wearing.

With that in mind, we've put together an Olivia Palermo lookbook — complete with every one of the fashion darling's eclectic, cool, and utterly chic ensembles from 2013. Click through to garner a little inspiration and see why Olivia was best dressed all year long.
