Olivia typically favors a traditional, preppy style, which is perfect for the classic lady. Navy is a classic “traditional” color and the nautical stripes paired with the jacket and skirt are ooo la la lovely. Olivia knows how to layer and her necklace brings just the right amount of attention to her striped top. Get the outfit for a price you can handle and look preppy inspired a la Olivia.

When Olivia isn’t sporting her traditional preppy garb, she keeps things simple with super chic black. Airing towards classy not trashy, she takes the fashion-foward route by pairing opaque black tights with her cuffed white jean shorts. Translate this look with any pair in your closet and wear shorts into fall. Olivia also knows how important the “visual line” is and she breaks up her all-black look with the contrast of white shorts. Her legs also look extra long thanks to her black tights and black shoes, for the same reason fashion experts recommend wearing nude shoes to elongate your legs.


Olivia certainly knows how to mix fashionable trends with classic pieces. She always looks fresh and polished and is great inspiration for any fashionista!
