Olivia Palermo - Looking Like A 5 Year Old On Easter - Shows How Not To Wear Florals

September 9, 2010 by Justine Schwartz

Olivia Palermo must think she’s pretty and thin enough to wear pretty much anything – because she walked out of the house in this Laura Ashley mu-mu (circa 1985) to the Fashion Night Out’s runway show last night. This off the shoulder number looks like something a Southern belle (or DJ Tanner) would have worn on Easter when they were five years old. Let’s try this again:

What she did wrong:

This is not how you wear florals this fall (or on a red carpet) – avoid pastel, bedsheet-looking patterns like Olivia’s.

Try 80’s trends – like off the shoulder or floral patterns – just not all at the same time.

What she should have done:

To wear florals in a more sophisticated, modern way, grab a sexy dress like this DIANE von FURSTENBERG “Laura” Herringbone Silk Floral Printed Dress ($298) that has black as the base color. This makes the floral really pop – as opposed to lie flat (like a bed sheet).

Ditto for this Juicy Couture Silk Floral-Print dress ($248). With black as the backdrop, the pink and white floral-like design looks on-trend and chic. You will love wearing this hot number with black tights and black booties for fall and winter’s biggest events and parties.

Another cool, modern take on florals is this Aqua Floral-Print Beaded dress ($88).  Throw on a cardi, tights and flat or heeled Oxford shoes and you are good-to-go for work, school and play.
