Olivia Palermo demonstrates how to mix patterns and flats for a fun night out. Her look is funky without losing sophistication. It’s really a great marriage of style and function. Who doesn’t love to look fabulous in flats, right?

To achieve this look, you want to pick all your pieces from the same color palette, just in varying shades. Olivia went with an easy black and white combo (very popular summer style trend). Here’s how you can duplicate her look:

Print Mixologist

V-Neck t shirt / CYCLE cycling jacket / Zara short skirt / Vince Camuto belt / DARIA SATCHEL-Black (use code RedHeels20 for 20% off) / Sofft Carolee Flats


Mixing patterns and textures gives your outfit life! Funky, fun and ready for a night out!  Make sure the tee or tank that you wear under the sequin blazer is fitted. You don’t want to add any unwanted bulk.

Who this look works for: A Rectangle.

Why:  While the blazer adds some volume to the top half of the body, it’s not significant.  If your shoulders and hips are in proportion, this outfit is for you.

Shoes: You don’t always have to wear heels when dressing up (sometimes a girl’s feet need a break)! Go with an unexpected great flat. A snake skin pattern looks luxurious if it’s a good quality shoe.

Accessories: Push up the blazer sleeves and add a few bracelets. Skip the necklace since the blazer is already a lot of bling.  Wear the belt on the waist to create curves.

Options: If you crave heels, go with red! A pop of color would do awesome things for this outfit!

Wear this look for a Friday night out, a casual business cocktail party or an evening networking event with fellow bloggers!
