Olivia Palermo in white at Fashion Week

FRUGAL FASHION

February 26, 2013|By Jenn Harris

One of the best parts of fashion weeks, season after season, is Olivia Palermo. She's not a designer or movie star, but she supplies an endless amount of sartorial eye candy. The reality TV personality attends all the hottest shows in outfits that are fashion forward and heavy on the accessories.

This season, Palermo's outfits focused on layering. Her best looks at London Fashion Week included a geometric-print sweater, Milly pleated skirt, color-blocked blazer by Tibi and red pumps at the Temperley London show; a print blouse, fur-trimmed Armani blazer, knee-length skirt and neon Fendi clutch at the Burberry Prorsum show; and a black-and-white printed Tibi sweater with a cap and red printed pumps front row at the Sass & Bide show.

Palermo also appeared to be the seasoned trendsetter when she hit the Rachel Zoe show at New York Fashion Week in a color-blocked white-and-black sweater, long white trousers and a fur vest. The vest and the black crocodile bag added some punches of texture and her wrists, ringed with bracelets, supplied a little shine.

Get Palermo's layered look in the color-blocked ruche sleeve fine gauge sweater from Express.com for $49.90 or the Townsen color-blocked sweater from Shopbop.com for $71.50. For the plush fur look without the actual fur, try the Jones New York faux fur vest for $59 or the Say What? faux fur vest from Kohl's for $20.40.

The Innue medium leather bag from Yoox.com for $120 is a fun crocodile-style bag, while the North-South crocodile embossed tote bag for $69 from NeimanMarcus.com features a pop of color.

Chunky accessories are a big part of Palermo's signature look. Layer your wrists with the Gogo Philip classic chunky chain bracelet from Asos.com for $33.91, the gold look chunky wrist wear bracelet set from Dorothy Perkins for $22 or the noir chunk bracelet from Baublebar for $32.
