The Best Dressed Archives: Budget-Friendly and Fabulous

When it comes to fashion, there are a select few who always seem to make the best dressed list. While these fashion icons have unlimited budgets and designers throwing their newest couture pieces at them, we regular folk seem to be left inspired by the looks with the heaviest price tags. We’ve been enthusiastic about many of Olivia Palermo’s looks over the years, and we are very confident that we can match this best dressed New Yorker’s most classic outfits.

Here is your budget-friendly inspiration!


Olivia Palermo classic style

The great thing about Rekucci is that we carry very classic pieces. This look is easy to pull off with our Concealed Placket Blouse in Ivory and Knit Culotte Capri in Taupe. Accessorizing is a personal preference but if this look speaks to you - pair your outfit with an oversized frame, gold cuff bracelet, black leather watch with gold hardware & a black high heel strap sandal. Finish with a dark leather bag and you’re away to the races. We love this look and love the price tag even better.


Short and blouse combination

The hotter months usually call for lighter layers and sometimes it can be a little tricky being stylish when it’s so bloody hot. This look has the perfect summer day written all over it. Try Rekucci’s Pull-On 5” Slimming Short in Stone and our Concealed Placket Blouse in Ivory. For a clean look, tuck it in with a skinny belt and pop your collar. A nice pair of nude shoes, gold cuff and patterned clutch really keep the overall lighter feel to this outfit. The versatility of this look ultimately gets you the most bang for your buck.


Casual scopp t shirt and casual capris

Who said casual had to be frumpy? Sometimes it’s more fun to play around with your evening and weekend wear. A classic tee and pair of capris is effortless chic. All we needed was a little inspiration. Try Rekucci’s Pull-On Capri With Button Detail in Black and our Scoop Neck T Shirt in Grey Mix. Experiment with a combination of accessories, bracelets of varying widths and styles, a classic pair of Audrey Hepburn-esque frames, an oversized earth-tone tote & a metallic ballet flat. Sounds poetic doesn’t it? It’s reasonably priced to boot.


Olivia Palermo inspired fashion: white blouse, black blazer with pull-on ankle slim pant

Any woman who wears an outfit like this means business. There’s a level of masculinity here but it has all the workings to make it sexy as well. Let’s face it – it’s the female power look. You can get the look with Rekucci’s Concealed Placket Blouse in Ivory, worn with the Pull-On Slim Ankle Pant in Black and topped with our Blazer With Single Button And Pockets in Black. It’s the trifecta of classy chic at its best. Pair with a pair of black patent leather loafers and a small clutch and we’re in business. What you’re left with are the best staples to expand your wardrobe and a very happy bank account.
