Olivia Palermo won’t be wearing a crop top this spring, but is loving the trend for culottes.
The former reality TV star is seen as a style icon and regularly finds herself among the lists of world’s best dressed women.
Known for her love of chic tailoring, Olivia is often spotted on the front row of Fashion Week shows. Although the 28-year-old brunette thinks a navel bearing top was once the height of sophistication, she no longer believes this to be the case.
“A crop top is an example of a trend I will not be trying,” Olivia divulged to People. “It doesn’t translate the same elegance it once had.”
While Olivia won’t be showing off her midriff this spring /summer she will be baring her toned pins.
She also emphasises the importance of good accessories when finishing off an outfit.
“I recently became a fan of the culotte. They can be very chic with a pair of heels when the proportions are right. I’m not typically a fan of chokers, but I make an exception when they exactly match the neckline. They can look very clean and very modern,” she advised. “I dress for the atmosphere and environment more than the company.”
Olivia regularly updates her Twitter followers with what trends she’s currently favouring. Recent posts include a pair of Rebecca Minkoff chunky heeled boots for a “mix of cool and quirky”, and a striking green orchard-print Peter Pilotto dress.
She’s also an advocate of feeling comfortable in your own skin, and thinks that fashion should reflect this feeling.
"I think that it’s most important to feel comfortable and look relaxed. And always consider the lighting,” she recently smiled to Glamour magazine.
