Olivia Palermo Wearing Leather Pants | September 2012

Olivia Gives Us Outfit Envy (Again), This Time in Denim + Leather

Here's the thing about Olivia Palermo: one minute she's giving you Valentino, and the next she's out walking her dog in the coolest take on Fall-casual, in leather pants and a denim button-down. She's fashionable, but doesn't subscribe to designer-only shopping or couture-exclusive style, which makes her all the more fun to watch — and makes her looks all the more accessible. With just a few new Fall essentials, Olivia throws on a pulled-together play on everyday dressing, and with her styling finesse, she gives this denim-and-leather combo a chicer edge. Here's how it's done:

  • It's all about smart proportions. Olivia balances a pair of slim-fit leather pants with an oversize denim button-down. You don't want to be swimming in your shirt or the look will end up feeling sloppy, but do opt for a longer-cut topper, which can help to conceal areas you may be less excited about showing off, like upper thighs and your derrière.
  • Punch up your look with accessories. The denim button-down can have a really casual effect, so if you're looking to dial it up, do as Olivia does and opt for luxe add-ons that can give your look a lift. A pair of flats in a rich Fall hue and velvet finish can give your look a warm, seasonal feel, while a contrasting color on your bag, like Olivia's, furthers outfit interest.
  • Take this look from day to night. Olivia wears the look well for daytime, but if you're hoping to give it an after-hours twist, just switch it up with more glamorous accessories, like a statement necklace, a sleek clutch, and a pair of pointed-toe heels.
