Palermo’s perfectly pulled-together style looks effortless and understated – with, of course, the help of an oversized pair of sunnies and designer handbag. Come rain or shine, the style icon and star of the hit series The City brings the catwalk to the streets every single day.

And since stellar It girl outings require equally show-stopping outfits, we’ve sifted through her endless killer looks to find our favourite –  the leather sleeved jacket look.

It’s no secret that leather will forever be an essential staple for every girl’s working wardrobe during autumn and winter. But as the years go by and looks become tired, designers have pulled out all the stops to create new leather looks. Leather pencil skirts and t-shirts have exploded onto the high street scene recently, but it was the leather-sleeved jacket that reigned above all. A personal favourite of Olivia’s, this will keep you warm through winter and go on to be an essential for cooler spring evenings.

Check out Miss Palermo's stylish wares such as her salt-and-pepper mockneck sweater teamed with a leather-sleeved blazer by Alexander Wang, which she topped off with quirky cat eye sunglasses and a classic Hermes bag.
