There’s so much to love about Olivia Palermo, who should add “expert fashion collaborator” to her resumé right under "It Girl." She’s got one of the most enviable street style repertoires around, as well as collaborations with brands like Westward Leaning and Bauble Bar under her belt. Up next for fashion’s first princess? A collection with Nordstrom’s in-house brand -- Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28.
Olivia will be doing four traditional deliveries under her collaboration over the next year -- spring, summer, fall, and resort --so it will be super easy to stock up on her signature styling pieces at a fraction of the sometimes-designer pieces she rocks. Palermo is not afraid of separates, which she uses as foundation building blocks for a styled wardrobe. She calls a lot of the pieces in her collection “life pieces,” which are just that — things you can buy now, wear now and keep in rotation forever.
Less pricey than Caroline Issa’s stellar and well-received collaboration, this is more of a line for those who really love affordable, fast fashion that they can continue to wear over and over again and mix in with investment pieces. There are sleeveless vests, trousers, dresses and more ranging from $78 to $448 — and trust us, you’ll lust after that $448 suede trench dress just like us.
The 32 piece collection is rolling out now, with about 20 pieces available this month. Our favorites include the denim blazer — so very Olivia — and the perfectly dramatic pleat front trousers. If you live in part of the country where the weather is unpredictable, you’re going to want to start stocking up on these transitional layering pieces.
