Olivia Palermo had a banner year as street style star — there were red carpet dresses, artfully constructed fashion week ensembles, and lots of impressive high-low mixing. Still, the fashion star decided to end her year not on the world's chicest city streets, but seaside instead. While vacationing in St. Barts with her boyfriend, she picked a striped bandeau bikini with a foldover band on the bottom. And while she looked fabulous in her swimsuit, we were most interested to see what she'd pull on over it all.
In lieu of a flowing caftan or denim cutoffs, the style star picked a lace-edged white button-up that looked light and breezy enough to handle any tropical temps. It was a smart packing piece for Olivia, too: imagine it worn belted over a skirt or casually tucked in to boyfriend jeans. The best part? You likely already own something similar. Make sure to pack it the next time you head to the shore.
