Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Olivia Palermo, Keira Knightley, & Kate Bosworth



Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Olivia Palermo, Keira Knightley, and Kate Bosworth. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Olivia Palermo’s Summertime Chic

Olivia Palermo has been putting the warm weather to good use lately, being photographed all over New York City in some true-to-form fabulous ensembles.  Ms. Palermo always manages to make a statement while keeping her looks chic and classy.  This week, she donned bright patterned shorts, a white V-neck blouse, a woven tote bag, and some orange flats.

I love Olivia’s look for a day of shopping or lunching with friends. Colorful, printed shorts are a summer staple, and can be dressed up for nighttime with a pair of heels and statement jewelry. For day, however, try pair them with some bright flats like Olivia’s, a woven tote bag perfect for the summer months, and a fun chunky bracelet. To add an extra touch of Olivia’s classic style, finish with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses.

Look 2: Keira Knightley’s Relaxed Night Out Look

Newly engaged actress Keira Knightley stepped out recently in a black maxi dress with front button detailing, a denim jacket, leather belt, leather shoulder bag, and some flat sandals.

Overall, Keira’s look is casual but still fashion-forward, and centers around accessories. Her brown leather belt helps to emphasize her physique, the embellishments on her sandals add a touch of femininity, and her denim jacket gives the look a downtown vibe.

A black maxi dress can take you from day to night this season, and can work for a variety of different settings. I know I couldn’t live without my own black maxi – I probably wear it once a week! The black maxi dress shown above has buttons running down the front, making it similar to Keira’s – cinch it at the waist with a brown leather belt. A denim jacket makes the outfit more casual, while embellished sandals keep you comfy yet cute.

Look 3: Kate Bosworth is a Boho Beauty

Kate Bosworth rocked a flirty boho look while out and about on a sunny day. Her look centered around a printed dress with ultra-trendy shoulder cutouts. She chose accessories that were in keeping with the boho-trendy vibe, adding a leather saddlebag, suede ankle booties, and a beaded Y-shape necklace.

A printed dress with shoulder cutouts is a fun and flirty addition to your summer wardrobe. It can be worn with simple accessories, since it makes a statement on its own, or with boho accessories, as seen in Kate’s look. A geometric Y-neck necklace plays on the unique neckline of the dress, while rugged ankle booties balance out the feminine frock. A saddlebag adds another cute boho touch, while classic sunglasses finish the look.

    I’m not a big fan of Kate’s look. I think the dress looks a little too frumpy on her, but I LOVE the dress you picked out based off her look! Sadly, the link just goes directly to the VS homepage. :(

    I recently bought the necklace Kate is wearing. It’s available through Jewelmint, her monthly jewelry line!
