If there’s one woman who knows how to run with a trend and make it her own, it’s Olivia Palermo and here she is giving a masterclass in how to work a peplum.

The peplum is this year’s surprise fashion hit. Quite how it became so on-trend is unclear because if it’s not done properly, it’s horrible. Style icon Olivia knows that loud prints on a peplum are garish – the last thing anybody wants is to look like a valance sheet on a bed. Instead she toughens up the look by opting for a black leather peplum with a belt. Her colour pairing is also fabulous. Purples. Indigos, lilacs and lavenders are going to be huge next season, as seen on every catwalk from Dior to Christopher Kane.

An outfit like this doesn’t need much accessorising but the classic white chain strap bag and two tone shoes prevent the look from being too muted. Well done Olivia. In the Style Olympics, you’d get gold.
