It’s a week for rule-breakers and dress-code rejectors. First, the Cannes Film Festival received a touch of backlash after grande dames were turned away in their flat footwear ruffling some elegant hems, and now, we have fashionphile Olivia Palermo wearing La Perla’s white suit the week before Memorial Day. However, instead of pairing the look with a button-down blouse and simple stilettos, the consummately chic New Yorker put her own twist on the summer staple with a few clever styling tricks.
Distinctive brooches accent Palermo’s lapels, giving her streamlined look a metallic touch and picking up the hue of her chain-link bracelet. To offset the prim nature of the suit, Palermo cuffed her sleeves and rolled up her trouser hems. She completed the look with a Hayward clutch in complementary colors and a pair of chartreuse sandals for a pop of color. If breaking the rules looks this good, then lock us up.
