Black trousers may not be the first item you reach for when dressing for summer in the city, so trust Olivia Palermo to seek out an utterly practical yet desirable spin on this wardrobe stalwart.
The 31-year-old style maven was pictured in a sunny NYC yesterday tackling the new split-front trend, where a cropped, kick-flare silhouette has been updated with a cutaway hem along the front. Interesting, directional and no doubt perfectly cooling, the result was weather-appropriate and still oozed sophistication.
Palermo, whose affection for the high street chain, Zara, we have well documented, could have well picked up a pair in her local branch, as the Spanish retailer is offering a myriad of styles around this new cut. She topped her look off with a black Breton and a satin bomber jacket adorned with playful embellishments.
