  • Olivia Palermo lets us in her actual wardrobe...

     Oh what we’d give to play dress-up in Olivia Palermo’s wardrobe (an epic walk-in affair, no doubt). Well we no longer need to just imagine the spoils, as the stylish socialite has been keeping an exclusive fashion diary, documenting everything she wears for 30 days.

    From Celine to Zara, Olivia’s closet confidential proves she really is a style chameleon, up for wearing anything but always giving the look her signature, polished twist.

    She’s now on day 17 of her fash-blogging marathon – here’s what we’ve learnt about her style so far:

    Olivia Palermo loves colour…
    The bolder the better, this ochre Paul and Joe suit from day 8 is one of our favourites from the whole diary.

    She’s keen on the high street…
    ASOS, Zara, Banana Republic – Olivia shops in all the same places as we do. Praise be.

    She’s introducing us to some great new labels…
    Why hello Meli Melo’s fuzz-tastic pink bag (teamed with the perfect denim dungarees) on day 6.

    She has a penchant for Carolina Herrera…
    We already knew this from that wedding dress saga, but with a sprinkling of CH pieces making their way into about 40% of the outfits featured, we’d say the obsession has reached a whole new level. Tibi, Sass and Bide and Reiss have also become Olivia staples.

    She has an enormous collection of Wunderkind sunglasses…
    Could a collaboration with the accessories giant be on the cards?

    And a stack of chic headgear…
    Never have we seen a woman so dedicated to making summer hats work in the city. From fedoras to floppies, boaters to buckets – Olivia’s got them all.
