Olivia Palermo: 'People can tell I'm a perfectionist by my wardrobe'

The fashionista has designed a capsule collection for Banana Republic

Olivia Palermo's wardrobe epitomises her perfectionist tendencies. The 31-year-old initially found fame on reality show The City, but has since made a name for herself as a fashionista.

Millions of people look to Olivia for wardrobe tips, and the model and entrepreneur told Glamour magazine that fans can tell a lot about her personality through the clothes she wears.


"People have told me that they get a sense of who I am by how I dress - they often say they can tell that I'm a perfectionist, which isn't a lie," she mused to the magazine. "I often find myself wanting to do it all, and knowing when to end work is sometimes challenging."

When it comes to piecing together an ensemble, Olivia is all about a good accessory. Meli Melo's structured bucket bags are among her favourites - so much so that she has them in a variety of hues to match any look.

"I've used Meli Melo bags for years and my current favourite is the Severine," she smiled. "It has a structured feel but its bucket shape is fun, so you can take it straight to an event after the office. I use it two or three times a week, and I have it in different colours."

Olivia is now giving her biggest fans the chance to follow in her ever so fashionable footsteps after designing a capsule collection for Banana Republic. The range contains stunning items including a paisley dress and a red double-breasted military style coat.
