Olivia Palermo was in a bikini once again yesterday to enjoy the end of her St. Barts vacation. She had the company of her shirtless boyfriend Johannes Huebl on the sand, and the couple even shared some PDA while out for a swim. Olivia and Johannes rang in 2013 on the luxe Caribbean island, which is playing host to other celebs including Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough. It's the same destination that Johannes and Olivia chose to see in 2012 as well, and they seem to be soaking up as much sun as possible before they return home to chilly NYC.
Olivia Palermo and her boyfriend, Johannes Huebl, enjoyed a sun-filled afternoon at a nude beach in St. Barts on Wednesday. While the beach was clothing-optional, both Olivia and Johannes chose to keep their suits on, with Olivia showing off her toned frame in an orange-and-pink bandeau bikini. The pair soaked up some rays on the sand and struggled with their rainbow-colored umbrella, which kept getting blown away in the wind. Yesterday, they were back on their towels. Olivia wore a bright cover up to dip her toes in the water while Johannes swam in red trunks.
Olivia and Johannes spent New Year's Eve in St. Barts, having been photographed displaying some serious celebrity PDA on the island last week. If you dig Olivia's boho St. Barts style, check out this breakdown of how to re-create Olivia's resort-ready looks.
The holiday break was the perfect chance for celebrities to get away and soak up the sun, and many of them took advantage of their time off with tropical trips. The luxurious vacations brought plenty of sexy bikini moments, including Jennifer Aniston, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Alba relaxing in skimpy suits in Cabo, Naomi Watts and Olivia Palermo sporting bright bikinis in St. Barts, and Julianne Hough wearing a white two-piece on the water. With so many stars showing skin over the holidays, we want to know — which star had the hottest bikini moment?
If you're anything like us, then you've probably been wondering: where has Olivia Palermo been? Not to worry, we're making up for lost time with a double dose of the style star's sartorial prowess — her latest, perfect-for-resort looks. While vacationing with beau Johannes Huebl in St. Barts, Miss Palermo showed off two unexpectedly chic beach ensembles, making use of a day-to-night maxi, a staple white blouse, and a ladylike pleated skirt. Consider this the most versatile of vacation style, the kind that makes use of pieces that you could wear at home (and practically year-round) as well. Rather than spend on paisley tunics or sarongs that have that beach-exclusive feel, Olivia's pieces go from the sand to the city without a lot of hard work — we're breaking it all down (and giving you the key pieces) right here:
- The chiffon maxi: Believe it or not, Olivia's luxe-looking snake-print maxi is also a wise investment. This piece looks breezy layered up over a bikini and finished with sandals (as Miss Palermo clearly proves), but the length and fabric are also begging to be layered with more substantive pieces. Add a black slip underneath, black tights, ankle boots, and a furry vest and you've got a glam look you could wear right now (and not at the beach).
- The easy button-down and skirt: We probably don't have to tell you why these pieces are so versatile on the main land — each of these is a closet staple that's easy to dress up or down, and warm up with jeans or tights. Olivia's take shows us the other side: how these wardrobe mainstays double as beachy cover-ups. Because of their lightweight fabrics and bright hues, they're easy to transform with other, more Resort-feeling accents. Want to take your button-down and mini to the beach? Just do as Olivia does and add in a pair of shades, a raffia tote, and metallic flip-flops to give them a laid-back feel that will match your vacation destination.
