Candace Rose: What are the biggest fashion trends for the spring?
Olivia Palermo: “Lots and lots of color. I couldn’t be happier! I always say it’s extremely important when getting dressed to always have a bit of color, even in the winter. So this season color is back. It was here last spring with color blocking, and it’s a great way to get ready.
First off we have- I love the tribal, it’s one of my favorites; it’s a pop of color. You can also wear a great neon shirt with these cute pairs of flats- if you would like, and incorporate two trends into one.
And 60’s is very inspirational this season as well. You have the chunky heel which is also part of the tribal trend. That’s kind of flattering for every woman whether you’re in a pencil skirt or you’re in cigarette jeans and you’re on the go, it’s definitely a keeper.
And then if you’re not really sure of what kind of trends to lean towards, you’re undecided the Marc Jacobs- the navy with a touch of neon, is a great alternate. It’s structured, it’s classic, you can have it for quite a bit of time.
And then behind me you have the colored blazers. They’re huge this season, and they’re all over Piperlime.com; they’re in every color. And it’s always nice to have a staple in your wardrobe, so a blazer’s a great way to go.
And last but not least I absolutely love my denim pants. They’re by Paige, and it’s a new take on denim and jean. Instead of having a blue jean to have a color and print; and play with the accessories, and leave the shirt very simple, and with a neutral color. Let the pants speak for themselves.”
Candace Rose: As you mentioned, neon is going to be a huge trend this season. How would you advise the average person incorporate this trend into their wardrobe if they aren’t used to wearing color?
Olivia Palermo: Start with an accessory, whether it’s a bangle or a pair of shoes. Obviously you see the tribal shoes have a bit of color. They’re great for slacks or just for everyday. And then you have the little purse- the neon purse, the change purse if you want to be hands free, that’s quite nice. And then the sandal is perfect for the summer with a strip of metallic. You saw metallics, they are always around.”
Candace Rose: What are some of the hottest shoe trends?
Olivia Palermo: “The hottest shoe trends would definitely be the thick heel. Thick heel for sure.”
Candace Rose: We’ve been seeing a lot of statement necklaces and stacked bracelets for the last couple of seasons, will they still be as popular?
Olivia Palermo: “I think so. I think it’s about finding your own personal style and incorporating the trends, and seeing what works for you. If you have a great look, and you feel it needs that extra bangle or that necklace, totally put it on and have fun with fashion because that’s what it’s about.”
Candace Rose: If you can only afford one piece or one trend this season, what would you advise?
Olivia Palermo: “I would definitely advise an accessory, it’s definitely the easiest. And I think if you go onto Piperlime.com, there’s so much for everyone, and definitely affordable fashion. You can go to OliviaPalermo.com and check out my picks along with all the spring trends this season.”
Candace Rose: Where will see you next?
Olivia Palermo: “Oh, I’ll be running around. I’ll be on Piperlime. You can check out OliviaPalermo.com, my blog and see all my inspirations from my travels, and so forth.”
