Oliva Palermo’s Clashing Look Is Surprisingly Cool

The fashionista mixed two prints we never thought would go together - and somehow made it work

Olivia Palermo wins this week’s award for most creative mix of prints, hands-down.

We’re all for taking style risks, but it might have never occurred to us to team a red plaid shirt with a baby-blue tweed skirt and jacket. But luckily, it did occur to Olivia – and the result is, well, awesome.

The unexpected clash of prints totally works, proving once again why Olivia has earned her spot as a style authority.

The Fashion Week stalwart – who’s recently engaged to Johannes Huebl – paired her look with black, thigh-high boots and a leather Givenchy tote for the Marchesa show on Wednesday.
