    With my current surroundings being filled with "clothes" that I don't quite approve of (i.e. trashy cutouts and underwear-like short-shorts),  Olivia Palermo's different Fashion Week outfits could not be more refreshing. While I'm not exactly her biggest fan, I have to admit her fashion sense is right up my alley.  What makes her style so unique is the sophistication she adds to each outfit she wears without looking like she tried too hard.  Take her first outfit for example; with florals and blue jeans, the look risks giving off too much of a casual feel. So, to avoid that mistake, Olivia sophisticates her look by wearing plain straight-legged jeans (key: no rips), florals that stick to a minimal color palette (no more than 2 color families), and topping it off with a long black fur coat (fur=fancy). When you break it down like that, it's quite deceiving because although her look appears effortless, you can see just exactly how much thought goes into each outfit she wears. Granted, she could have easily just thrown a random outfit on walking out the door without thinking, but considering she's up there in terms of fashion icons, I'm going to say that's probably not the case!

   Just for kicks, I threw in my all-time-favorite look of hers. Sure, hot pink being my favorite color might make this the obvious choice, but from the intricate lace to the subtle belt to the oh-la-la shoes, everything about this look screams perfection. Not to mention she's rocking it in my favorite city. Oh to be Olivia Palermo...
