Ola is a fashion blogger based in Washington, DC, who shares her outfits on her blog, LifeStylewithOla, and on her Instagram account. She loves bright colours and likes to experiment with different silhouettes and layering. Statement specs and earrings are essential to her style, just like her signature cropped ‘do that adds extra pizzazz to every outfit.

Layering pro Ola is sporting a rainbow plaid fit-and-flare sundress with square neckline as the base layer in this colourful outfit. A wide dark brown belt accentuates her waistline and creates structure. The oversized long-line denim jacket adds on-trend slouchiness while the mid-blue denim picks up the blue in the midi dress. As her top layer, Ola chose an eye-catching rust faux leather croc-embossed trench coat that adds soft edge. The rust works well with the orange and red in her cheerful dress. The structured lime green mini satchel and white pointy-toe pumps complement the colour palette and add crisp polish.

This is a fab example of Angie’s Solid Summer Green Outfit Formula! Our blogger has tucked a Kelly green tank top into dressy, on-trend beige wide leg trousers, which lengthens the leg line from the hips up. She further dresses up the look with a boxy cropped bouclé jacket in pale mint. The tailored shoulderline adds structure and contrasts cleverly with the fluid fit of the trousers. Chunky white sneakers add a Sporty Luxe touch. Ola introduces a third shade of green with her fun bright woven bag and matching nail polish. To finish things off, she accessorizes with a dainty pendant necklace and statement earrings.

Ola expertly mixes casual with dressy pieces in this delightful Sporty Luxe shorts outfit. She’s tucked a fitted white tee into a dressy pair of structured shorts with trendy high waist. The bright orange makes a cheerful statement and makes the white components in the outfit look extra crisp. A cropped boxy jacket finishes right on the top of the shorts’ waistband which elongates the leg line. Two-toned high-top sneakers bring the Sporty and colour match the outfit perfectly. Our blogger’s black bag, gold brooch, bracelets, pendant and oversized earrings all add refined polish.

The combination of warm-toned leopard print and cool-toned snakeskin adds bucketloads of pizzazz in this Soft Edge Fall outfit. Ola has tucked her leopard print crew neck sweater into black leather midi culottes. The more rigid leather adds structure and textural interest. The black culottes are also the unifying factor as they echo the black in both animal print items. The tall block-heeled pointy-toe boots are on-trend, and the white in the colour palette is repeated in the sweater cuffs and neckline. Ola’s dressy black bag makes a second appearance and fits the outfit colours beautifully. A white Panama hat and oversized hoops add dramatic flair.

Shocking pink and cranberry are a match made in heaven in this elegant sweater dress outfit. Ola is wearing a turtleneck midi sweater dress in a gently fluid cut that skims the body and flares out at the bottom. The vertical ribbing of the knit draws the eye up and down and elongates the silhouette. The white accessories and footwear are unexpected but add crisp polish and lightness. The tall self-patterned boots add subtle textural interest while the pointy-toed style lengthens the leg line. Our blogger’s midi statement coat in a velvety finish brings even more textural and visual interest to the look. The raspberry chain-detail newsboy cap throws a second shade of red into the mix, and is the playful finishing touch.

Ola is bringing the WOW factor in this stunning daffodil yellow suit! The fit is fab and structured in all the right places. Ola is wearing the hip-length blazer with sharp shoulders over a black and white top that partially peeks out. Paired with high heels, the flared trousers skim the ground, creating an elegant silhouette that lengthens the leg line. Sporting vibrant yellow from head to toe makes a statement and a half on its own, and needs no extra bells and whistles. Ola kept it simple by continuing the yellow theme with her point-toe pumps. The silver buckle is just enough of an accent to add some visual interest. The patterned black and white bag matches the top and also echoes the rim on Ola’s gorgeous statement specs. Bright red lipstick and oversized hoops add extra oomph. And as always, Ola’s signature cropped ‘do amps up the style factor even more.
