Olivia Palermo doesn’t put a price on fashion

Olivia Palermo loves it when fashion makes women look and feel confident.

Olivia Palermo swears by her aunt’s advice, that great fashion is priceless.

The style maven first made a name for herself in reality TV series The City back in 2009 and she has since become one of fashion’s most elite stars, often perching front row during designer presentations. When it comes to putting an ensemble together, 31-year-old Olivia isn’t afraid to push the boundaries – and that doesn’t necessarily mean splashing the cash.

“It’s about mixing and matching,” she explained to The Edit of her own aesthetic. “My aunt has always said, ‘If it’s great, it’s great – and it doesn’t matter how much it costs.’ Fashion is for every woman. You can see if she’s into it: her eyes light up when she talks about it. I love seeing a woman looking amazing walking down the street in New York, when you can see her confidence. I just think: ‘You go, girl!’”

Olivia has become so in demand the brands such as beauty giant Aerin, Max Mara diffusion line MAX&Co. and Banana Republic have all utilised her expert knowledge for their offerings. While she doesn’t let the label of ‘former reality star’ get to her, the brunette beauty does want people to know she puts a lot of effort into her various ventures – even if the company doesn’t make that clear.

“A label should probably be somewhat accurate,” she noted. “I do more behind the scenes than people realise.”

In 2014 Olivia tied the knot with German model Johannes Huebl, 39, who recently became the face of Todd Snyder’s new tailored clothing collection. Surprisingly, the fashionista sidestepped the traditional dress insisting she wanted to wear something “low-key” and instead opted for a chic three-piece outfit consisting of a cream cashmere sweater, matching shorts and a skirt by Carolina Herrera for her nuptials in New York.Read more at:marieaustralia.com

Fashion boosted my confidence

 

The 42-year-old began her career as one fifth of hit '90s group the Spice Girls, which earned her the nickname Posh Spice thanks to her sophisticated persona and designer outfits. She went on to have a brief solo career, but in 2008 she decided to ditch music and set up her eponymous clothing label after fashionable stints like her collaboration with Saks Fifth Avenue, walking the runway for Roberto Cavalli, as well as modelling for Marc Jacobs.

"Being in the Spice Girls was so much fun, but I was never the best singer or dancer. I learned an enormous amount during that time, though: the staging, the lighting, the costumes - the package excited me," the British designer explained to Elle U.K. "But I love fashion - this is what I'm genuinely interested in... When I look back at my past self, (the way I dressed and behaved) was probably a sign of my insecurities. I feel quite confident in myself now - getting older doesn't bother me."

Victoria is now busier than ever with work and recently collaborated with U.S. store Target on an affordable line for women of all sizes, as well as girls, toddlers and babies, and it's set to launch on Sunday (09Apr17).

On top of that she has Fashion Week duties twice a year, but she doesn't get stressed as her former soccer player husband David Beckham is on hand to look after their four kids while she focuses on her designs.

"Yes, he's great. During fashion week, when I'm working, the children will be in New York and he's already planned to take them to museums then out for dinner on Saturday night, so he is very good at that sort of thing - as am I," she added. "That's how you can show your support in a marriage, by saying, 'You know what, I've got this.' That's what makes a good partnership."Read more at:formal dresses canberra | plus size formal dresses

Here’s why we love April showers

 

Rain will not stop play for one single second this April, because we are determined to be well prepared and stylishly attired.

Optimistically, the weather is set to change for the better this month, but realistically, we can still expect to see, and feel, what April is famous for – plenty of precipitation.

If you cannot always agree with Gene Kelly that this is indeed a “glorious feeling”, you’ll just have to rely on your outfit choices to keep you dry and cheery. And that means a raincoat. Or a mac, a trench, a shower parka, an anorak, or whatever you want to call it. There are many styles and names, but one ultimate purpose: to keep you dry.

The raincoat has evolved over time from an outerwear garment reserved for walking and breezy activity to a well-respected fashion item, thanks to a few pertinent factors.

Outdoor brands that typically produced functional garments for the countryside, such as Barbour, have become adept in recent years at fashion-forward design, combining functionality with trend-led ideas. There’s far more to Barbour than the waterproof wax sporting jackets it is famous for, and the brand is beloved of country folk, townies, celebs and royalty.

Another factor in fashion’s current adoration of the raincoat is the rising popularity of sportswear, due to the ubiquitous athleisure trend. The growth of streetwear and sports luxe has gathered huge and increasing momentum over recent years, reinforcing big sports names such as Nike and Adidas as major fashion players.

Oversized windbreakers and ’90s- style coats have become a key part of athleisure uniform, adding urban edge to daywear looks.

Oversized windbreakers and ’90s- style coats have become a key part of athleisure uniform, adding urban edge to daywear looks. So, here is a guide to what to look out for this April, so you can combine damp-proofed practicality with more than a dash of street-wise (and country lane-wise) credibility.

The Metallic Mac: The High Street has lots of examples in many metallic shades. Check out New Look for starters for silver, pink and purple gleaming metallic macs, and also in patent red, navy and green, and holographic shimmering pink versions. Topshop also has some great looking versions, slightly longer in length, as well as a longer-length red vinyl raincoat, for a bold retro approach to staying dry in style. Pair your metallic mac with denims, or go for a glamorous Coachella look for this summer’s festivals by wearing over white (although maybe think twice if it’s muddy).

The Nautical Style Jacket: Inspired by fishermen’s jackets, these come in bright colours (check out the yellow Barbour version) with practical detailing such as drawstring hoods, and poppers on plackets, necklines and pockets. The Barbour one has a chic fishtail hem at the back. Marks & Spencer has a blue and white striped style that’s ideal for wet and windy weekends by the coast. But be aware that these jackets can be bulky-looking, so team with fitted and slimline clothes underneath, where possible.

The Padded Waterproof Bomber: Padded cropped jackets are still very current and a close-fitting waterproof version is ideal for teaming with jeans or wearing open slung over tunic and T-shirt dresses, for an easy urban look.

The Clear Option: Finally, if you have taken much trouble putting your outfit together and don’t appreciate the idea of having it all covered up by a mac, New Look also does a longline clear plastic raincoat, which acts as a sort of waterproof outer wrapping for your clothes. It’s a perfect festival option that might also work over party and special occasionwear.Read more at:http://www.marieaustralia.com | cocktail dresses
