Olivia Palermo has long stood as one of our ultimate style icons and where she goes, we always follow without a whim.
Now, it looks like the 28-year-old's penchant for bright, snake-print heels has been put on hold for the time being as she channels her latest obsession day in, day out.
Yep, we're talking about fringing; this season's It texture which OP has championed from day one and, if her latest outfit is anything to go by, she's showing no signs of tiring of it.
We clocked the style maven, writer and businesswoman at a glam awards party in Mexico last night rocking a stunning black fringe midi skirt complete with oversized brown beads, cleverly draped to enhance the fringed feel. Finishing off her look with a chic tailored jacket and black, t-bar strap heels, this ensemble optimises everything we've come to know and love from Liv.
However, it was only a few days before that she opted for another fringed piece. On the arm of her hunky-hubby Johannes Huebl, Olivia chose to cover up her white column gown with a gorgeous, embroidered jacket finished with - yep, you guessed it - a long fringed hem.
A quick and super-effective way of breathing new life into your basics, we'll be stealing this tip straight off her back and claiming it for ourselves. In fact, we think her look is so on-point, we reckon the fringed jacket could come through as the cover-up to be seen in this party season. You heard it hear first...
She may have been sporting her fringed pieces non-stop over the past couple of weeks but her obsession kick-started during Fashion Month back in September when she attended the Michael Kors SS15 catwalk show in New York clad top-to-toe in the designer's western-style fringed skirt and suede shirt combo.
So, there you have it; the high priestess of fashion has spoken. Go forth and get yourself something fringed pronto, or risk missing out on the major sartorial cred it's guaranteed to give you in bucket loads.
We don't know about you, but we intend to be fringed all season long... Thanks for more inspo yet again, OP.
