The Belted Beauty

I think it’s safe to say that Miss Palermo is totally responsible for the ‘belt and tuck’ trend and we LOVE IT! An instant update to that cute dress you’ve worn a few too many times, belting a statement, silk scarf will see that dress completely transformed.

For this fashion week front row look, Olivia teamed a demure white and duck-egg blue lace dress with a floral print scarf. The bold and vibrant colors on this scarf takes her dress in a quirky direction.

If you want to take your favorite lace dress away from girly-girl territory, add the floral paisley scarf and belt with a classic, tan belt. And bam! You have totally nailed Olivia’s feminine meets quirky style.

The Casual Blazer

Ok; so you invested in that timeless blazer just to find it collecting dust in the back of your wardrobe. Getting your moneys worth out of tailored blazer can be hard, unless your 9-5 is spent in the office. Luckily, Olivia is here with some casual blazer styling inspo! Simply layer your blazer over a plain white t-shirt and jeans combo for a timeless look. Then add an element of interest with a printed, green neck scarf. For an extra dressy look, layer your scarf over long, silver necklaces.

The Pattern Clash

Another one of our favorite Olivia ‘scarf tuck’ looks, is this clashing-prints look. Although clashing prints can look overly bawdy, Olivia keepers her look clean and crisp by sticking to a neutral color palette of nude, bush and grey. She toned down the prints with a plain tan scarf and shoes.

Olivia’s stunning Burberry scarf may break your bank balance, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate this scarf look. Invest in the multi-color abstract scarf in blue violet, it’s only $18, and is a total dupe for Olivia’s Burberry beauty.

The Shoulder Shawl

If this isn’t Winter perfection, I don’t know what is! Olivia shows that white is this seasons color with a white chunky turtleneck and fluted skirt. The magic of this pairing lies solely in the texture; there’s something so satisfyingly juxtaposition-al about the rip knit and the smooth, white flutes together. The cherry on the top of this look, however, is undoubtedly the scarf tied across the shoulders. It makes us question: A: Why didn’t I think of this? And B: Will I ever wear a scarf in the conventional way ever again?

Simply take the geometric print scarf and drape over your shoulders, securing in a loose knot between your bust.
