Boyish apparel makes the A list

Los Angeles TimesOctober 18, 2012 

Socialite and former reality TV star Olivia Palermo has become a fixture at fashion shows around the globe. She is routinely on best-dressed lists, appearing in outfits that are fashion-forward and that flatter her petite silhouette.

Palermo made the rounds at London Fashion Week, where she stopped by the Burberry spring-summer 2013 women's wear show at Kensington Gardens in a menswear-inspired outfit. She wore the label's belted tweed topper, which she girlied up a bit with a cinched waist, and a pair of classic black slacks. She accessorized with a gold chain bracelet and crocodile clutch.

Want the look? For a plain pair of slacks to wear to the office, or dinner and drinks, try the studio stretch editor pant from Express.com for $69.99. Stay cozy with the quilted jacket from Zara.com for $89.90. For Palermo's super-cinched waist, try the versatile Linea Pelle turn and tuck buckle belt for $119. Wear it over a blazer for fall or with a dress come springtime.

Palermo's accessories add a bit of polish to her boys-of-fall look. For a similar clutch, try the Mundi crocodile clutch in brown from Kohls.com for $38, and add some bling with the chain link stretch bracelet from Charlotterusse.com for $8.50.
