Jet-set darling Olivia Palermo is a huge street style star— but to hear her tell it, this well-heeled young woman is just trying to wear what works best for her. In an interview at a party celebrating Stuart Weitzman's 5050 boot this week, Palermo told us about everything from how she gets ready every day to her favourite thing about Fall in New York City. Read on for more of our interview with Palermo.
POPSUGAR: You are known around the world for having such impeccable style — how do you get up and approach what you're going to wear?
Olivia Palermo: I get up every morning and dress for my mood. I enjoy getting dressed, and everything has a bit of a polished element to it, but really I dress for myself and also what's appropriate for my schedule throughout the day.
PS: What are your favourite pieces to wear in Autumn? Do you have pieces you look forward to, or do you look at what's new for the season?
OP: It's a coincidence that we are at Stuart's event for the 5050 boot, because I've been a big fan of that style for many years, and I think it's a great, great boot to wear all the time. I have every colour, I basically wear them almost every day. Because you go to the office, sometimes you're in heels, and I think it's a chic, comfortable look to be in.
PS: What's your favourite piece to rewear?
OP: I always love a great blazer, a great fur vest, a great cashmere sweater. Zadig & Voltaire has really great cashmere chunky sweaters in the Winter. Also skiing — I love my Moncler jacket, and skiwear I'm always inspired by.
PS: What's your favorite thing about New York City in Autumn?
OP: The changing of the leaves. Because I don't think there's any other place in the world that's like New England and the Falls that we have, and they are quite beautiful. Enjoy it while you can, because I feel like each year the seasons — they get shorter and shorter, and sometimes you miss the change.
