Fashion tips from Olivia Palermo, The Edit cover girl

fashion & stylestyle tips

The American fashion icon Olivia Palermo reveals her fashion bible and future projects in The EDIT, the online magazine of NET-A-PORTER.COM Her peerless elegance has earned iconic status in American fashion. But for Olivia, it's innate.

"My mother and my grandmother were always very stylish. They never go out without being prim and inspired me from an early age. "Olivia owns her success to her unique attention to detail. "When you dress, scan your outfit from head to toe, she advises. I pay attention to detail. I have thousands of skinny belts. I also like wide belts, but by layering several pieces, better opt for a thin belt that you can easily hide. Use a razor blade to get rid of lint on your sweaters. I always have a roll of Scotch double-sided in my bag. Your sleeves rolled up does not sit still? Use elastic for hair. "

This fall, Olivia puts her impeccable style in the service of her collaboration with shoemaker Aquazzura. 

"I know Edgardo [Osorio, the artistic director and founder of the brand] from the beginning. We became very good friends, says Olivia. I do not associate myself and do not work but with people I know well. Few Shoe designers are as good as at making beautiful and comfortable shoes; Manolo [Blahnik] is one of them, as Edgardo. Our goal? Create must-have pieces. Edgardo and I both love the low-cut shoes and high heels. Besides, it is high heels he has never created. But I think we did well drawn and comfortable shoes. It does not compromise his approach. "

The EDIT

Would she like to start her own fashion line? Olivia leaves nothing to chance and has provided in its ten-year plan. "I want to start my brand [fashion], but one thing at a time. I feel capable. Just follow the steps. When the opportunity arises, I will seize it without hesitation. "

The EDIT

Aside from her beginnings as a designer, Olivia manages her own website since 2011 "The idea came to me while traveling. My friends asked me repeatedly to recommend them places before heading to Berlin, London or Madrid ... So, I mainly built [my site] about my travels, places I've visited, people I've met, not to mention of course fashion shows. My team has three employees working full time on the editorial part, developers, and myself. I do not have a free minute. "
