Ask A Stylist: Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo has built an entire empire on her insane sense of style, and it's safe to say she's a fashion icon.

So of course the 28-year-old did not disappoint when she attended the Janelle Monáe concert earlier this week. Palermo went with a more casual look and her style was on point, as always.

Olivia rocked the denim on denim trend here with perfection. She paired a white tuxedo-style jacket by Whistles for $372 with a denim button down and distressed AG Jeans for $215. A gold strappy sandal by Aquazzura for $745, and an insanely gorgeous off the runway yellow embellished clutch by Christian Dior completed the look. Crazy perfect!

Now, denim on denim can be downright terrifying, I get it. Here's how to pull it off like Olivia.

First, don't try to be matchy-matchy; different shades of denim are best! Also, break up the denim with a statement piece. Either a pop of color on the shoes, bag or a great layered jacket as Olivia did here, and you will be all good!

Now my favorite part, let's recreate this on the cheap! This tuxedo style jacket by Wyatt courtesy BlueFly is an amazing alternative, and for $41 the price can't be beat! I love this denim shirt from Mango for $38 because it has that distressed vibe.

As for the jeans I am making an exception. These AG jeans that Olivia is wearing are reee-diculous. I own them and every client of mine that purchases them falls in love and won't take them off; they are that incredible. So yes, spend the extra money here and get these AG Jeans, trust me, you will thank me later.

On to accessories. These $130 gold Pelle Moda shoes from Nordstrom are a great alternative and still have that strappy gladiator feel to them.  Add in this stunning embellished yellow clutch for $108, a fraction of the price of Olivia's Christian Dior version, and there you have it!
