NYFW: Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo

 In Fashion, Outfits

YOU GUYS. Today was absolutely amazing. I attended my first fashion week presentation for NYFW Spring/Summer ’18, along with several other events. I also had the opportunity to meet my style icon, Olivia Palermo, at the Banana Republic show!

She debuted her Fall 2017 line with Banana Republic by hosting an in-store show and presentation. Banana Republic does their shows a bit differently than other labels. Instead of hosting runway shows that feature SS18 looks, they decided to start doing ready-to-wear presentations, where you can shop the line directly following the show! Talk about the perfect (yet dangerous) setup for a shopping addict like myself.

Olivia’s line features a mix of military and feminine style, focusing on accents like bell sleeves, ruffles, and buttons. She uses colors like blush pink, dusty orange, and army green throughout the line. I cannot get enough of this blush pink jacket or this perfect blouse! You can check some of my other top picks from the Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo line below. As always, just click the photo to shop it directly 🙂

 

Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo Favorites

 

How amazing are these pieces?! I think it’s one of my favorite fall collections yet. They also price pieces reasonably for how high-end they look. A lot of the pieces are also available in petites (which I love).  I tried on a few jackets in petite XS and they were perfect.

As for NYFW trends, I’ve been seeing a lot of heeled booties, velvet outfits, and accent jackets. Leather jackets still seem to be in style, I mean they are pretty timeless. But, people have been mixing in colored suede jackets too. I picked up this tan suede jacket the other day and might wear it to some events tomorrow. If you’d like to follow along for more behind the scenes fashion week snaps, be sure to watch my Instagram stories!

What pieces from this collection are your favorite?!

 

Xx,
