When I think about who does ‘smart/casual’ dressing best of all, my mind is always drawn to Olivia Palermo. She seems to have a knack of choosing separates that, individually look simple, and yet she puts them together with such style that you are immediately drawn to her outfits when picking your best dressed.
The outfit below is a case in point. Individual pieces from Esprit that colour clash, are put together cleverly with vintage accessories to create a killer outfit. The mustard/orange shade of the cable knit sweater actually looks fabulous with the plum skinnies, whilst the addition of those paste brooches is a genius touch that adds glamour to what is a daytime look. The mismatched shoes and bag also shouldn’t work, but they clearly do, giving the jeans a more businesslike, elegant feel.
You can get a great version of Olivia’s look from the current Asda George range. I’m particularly smitten with the £8 cable jumpers that come in a range of colours (At that price you can afford to buy a few different shades!). These are great versions of Olivia’s jumper and look snug without being bulky.
