What To Wear: Weekend

As soon as the weekend rolls around, it is time to relax and recharge. Whether that entails sitting by the pool or catching a movie, what you wear shouldn’t be a production. Instead, trying mixing your wardrobe basics with a pop of pattern or color for an easy summer look. Olivia Palermo is a pro at combining patterns without creating disjointed or overwhelming looks. This effortless summer ensemble is a prime example of just how she does it. Most people would never think to combine cheetah with studded heels and a polka dot shirt, however Olivia balances all of these designs. The key is to pick pieces with subtle patterns and to choose colors that will all work together and are not too independently strong. Palermo opts for a lightweight white polka-dot top with understated cheetah print shorts and a studded strappy sandal. All of these pieces are either the same color or pattern and that is the crucial component to recreating this look. She then completes the ensemble by layering feather jewelry and a carryall leather tote. Collectively, this ensemble proves that there is a way to wear multiple patterns and colors without it resulting in an overwhelming look. -Carly
