Fashion week comes but twice a year, the Autumn/Winter 2017 shows are now all over, with the runways from New York, London, Milan Paris full of exciting new trends. And with every six-month cycle, our attention inadvertently turns to the world’s most stylish women. Specifically- what they’re wearing to the shows and on the streets of the world’s fashion capitals.
One woman who never fails to catch our eye is blogger, socialite, entrepreneur and all-round style icon Olivia Palermo. From her innate ability for putting outfits together to her enviable flair for picking the right accessories, we’ve been admirers of her style ever since she first appeared on our screens in MTV’s reality TV show The City.
Though many trends have come and gone since then, her unique style has never faded. But just how does she achieve her flawless look? From carefully selected clothes to shoes and jewellery, a variety of components make up her signature style. And the one piece she returns to time and again? Our favourite accessory: sunglasses. Here’s how to get the Olivia Palermo look for yourself with our edit of street style-ready sunglasses.
Oversized sunnies are a staple part of the blogger uniform – Olivia’s included – and these Bvlgari frames are more than worth the status. Although at the higher end of the price scale, these shades come with polarized lenses to protect your eyes from UV rays as well as all the camera flashes.
Finished with intricate hardware at the temples, these BV8179KB sunglasses are complete with gemstone settings for an added element of luxury. Trust is, you’ll want to dedicate more than one outfit post to these.
Thick Black Frames
Come rain or shine, Olivia Palermo is never snapped without her trusty sunnies, particularly ones with thick black frames. A little bit kooky but totally chic, these Prada PR-14SS frames are the easiest way to steal her style.
From the slightly hexagonal shapes to the metallic bridge, these sunglasses perfectly embody the balance between retro and modern that Prada eyewear is known for. Plus, they’re complete with logo details at the temples, so everyone will know exactly what brand you’re rocking. We bet they’re right at the top of Olivia’s wish list.
The Modern Classic
When it comes to vacationing, the style icon always makes sure that sunglasses are at the top of her packing list. But when the temperature rises, Olivia Palermo is often pictured without her trusty black oversized frames and wearing a pair that’s altogether more light.
Dior’s Ultradior sunglasses perfectly fit the bill. From their aviator shape to their metallic frames and tinted lenses, they’re perfect for days spent on sailboats or lounging by the beach. But don’t be fooled by their classic silhouette, these sunnies are complete with sleek wire-framed arms for a distinctive touch, so don’t be surprised when the compliments start coming in and everyone asks you where you got them from.
