Celebrity Inspired: Olivia Palermo in Masculine Meets Feminine

How to: Olivia Palermo's Masculine Meets Feminine

The masculine trend always seems to make an appearance in the hottest runway shows, whether in the form of meticulously tailored trousers, a strong tuxedo blazer or leather loafers. But many women are afraid they will wind up looking frumpy and boring in a stuffy and very un-sexy suit. Take a note from Olivia Palermo, in head to toe MANGO, who uses luscious fabrics to transform a look that could have been harsh into something soft, feminine and classically elegant. To start, she wears a wide-leg, high-waisted trouser with a slightly loose fit. Any color trouser would work here, but the classic chino style works to play up the conventional masculinity of her look. Try these high-waisted trousers from BB Dakota, Rachel Zoe, and Desire Clothing. Palermo makes plain trousers red-carpet ready by tucking in a silk pussybow blouse (try   these from Robert Rodriguez, River Island, and Miss Selfrige), using a belt to create a defined waist (ASOS and Modcloth make good options for less), and throwing on rich gold and brown leather accessories (Trina Turk ring, Forzieri cuff, Fossil and Radley cross-body bags).

To top off her enviable ensemble, Palermo smolders in a super-shiny bob, classic red nails, and lashes to die for. Replicate her look with Kiehl's Silk Groom Serum, Essie's Turning Heads Red, and Eylure Feathery Lashes. The finished look is polished, sophisticated, and undeniably sexy!
