There are days when my mind travels to reassessing my style. Does it represent the person who I am now? What new risks can I take? Is it need of honing, perhaps a slight tweak, or is it just where it needs to be – sublime in its present state?
Much of style is an innate gift. Yet that’s not to say it can’t be cultivated and perfected, fine-tuned with practise. And, whose to say it can’t modulate over time, as long as it stays true to you.
When I fell upon this photo of Olivia Palermo debuting her new shoe collaboration with Aquazzura (available now at Net-a-Porter, prices range from $565 to $1,625), I thought to myself now there’s a women who was born with style. For me, she is always spot on. Always!
This first started out as a Get The Look For Less post (it had been a while), but it seems Olivia’s not only a style pro, she’s got her finger on the pulse of what’s unique – a trend starter. I couldn’t find a pair of shoes that resembled hers, and the same goes for Marchesa Voyage’s blue embroidered moto-style jacket – another to-die for piece! Therefore I took the main elements of her look (navy jacket, white blouse, navy shoes – all classic with edgy details) and created a simpler look. Yet, one that with a dose of imagination can be livened and spruced up.
