Olivia Palermo's Summer Style Tips
What is your go-to brunch look?
"I much prefer lunch over brunch. Go-to lunch look would be an off-the-shoulder white shirt and cropped jeans."
What are your must-have summer accessories?
"Sun hat, gold accessories, straw bag and a canvas bag for the beach."
What is your favorite summer piece that goes from day to night?
"White bejeweled clutch during the day with a white button-down, and then at night with a white dress and pair of great heels."
What is the key to finding the perfect pair of sunglasses?
"The key is to try on various styles. Once a style is found that you like, it's important to try on different sizes of the frame."
What is one of your summer packing tips?
"Twist your chiffon into a knot, making it easier to pack."
