Mogul Of The Month, Olivia Palermo


Palermo is a master at blending inexpensive pieces, high-end designer items, and vintage articles to establish her sophisticated style. She keeps things interesting by trying several different shapes and lengths, rather than playing it safe in a single silhouette. Palmero’s preference for statement-making accessories is also noteworthy.

Check Olivia’s Style Rules
1. In every outfit, I always try and incorporate a single trend, but in a subtle way.
2. I would describe my style as modern, but classic.
3. I always like to wear one very structured piece, like a great jacket or a skirt.
4. For next season I like the look of all the embellished clothes, and those copper-toned metallics, although not everyone can pull that off…
5. You don’t always have to stay high end – I like mixing and matching.
6. My favourite item of clothing right now is a Topshop white cardigan with a pale blue pinstripe; it’s so easy to wear.

Fabulously Fetish!

PVC ankle boots and a dress slashed to the navel might sound relatively absurd – but lately latex body suits and lace veils are one of the main trends this season! Everyone from Katie Holmes to Gaga has got their fetish fashion on in this October! Runaway shows unveil cuffs, flashers’ macs, leather and PVC all commanding a starring role this season in every woman’s wardrobe. As a result, stores are now stocking the fashionable fetish style, from latex to sheer pieces and corsets. But can this look translate from the runway and style magazines to the street? Could you wear it walking down the street? There is a subtler way to inject a bit of bondage into your wardrobe, either with leather panels, lace and sheer blouses or with accessories. Topshop has worked the theme into more wearable dresses, check it out…
