NYFW Look for Less: Olivia Palermo's Striped Power Suit and White Sneakers

Olivia Palermo Striped Suit Look for Less
Olivia Palermo is one of our personal favorites to follow for enviable street style, and she definitely did not disappoint at this year's New York Fashion Week. If you need a new business casual look that doesn't bore the socks off your co-workers, take notes! This striped power suit is commanding and refined, with a skinny white belt peaking out of her tucked in turtleneck sweater and a sleek top knot bun. It's a common theme to see "out there" pieces at NYFW, and Olivia achieved this here with these fresh studded white kicks! Valentino makes a similar pair here.

Nicky Hilton Striped Tee and Black Tote Look for Less
If there was a signature casual outfit for the season of summer, this would likely be it. A black and white striped tee with denim shorts will never fail, and the ones we found from Kohl's are a major deal at under $20. They also have a 4-inch inseam, so you will be plenty covered while still wearing a trendy pair of distressed denim shorts. A bag can dress up tee and denim essentials like these that you may even already have in your closet, and we love the luxurious look of this ALDO bag - and that it's attainable without being on a waitlist to buy it for the same price as your car!

We can definitely take notes from J-Lo on how to nail a glam look and confidently compliment her figure! Her white flare pants and satchel ensure that the colors pop like fireworks - but they are such great standout pieces themselves! Bonus finds here are the white flare jeans from Express, which run from sizes 00-18, and the yellow pumps are available in wide sizes on Amazon. Celeb favorite Christian Louboutins in neon yellow are a fab shoe to tie it all together...and what better time to experiment with bright colors than summer!
