From the chicest ways to accessorize to the hottest up-and-coming designers to watch out for, we look to Olivia Palermo for everything.

She’s not called a style icon for no reason. However, we did notice that there is one trend that the 27-year-old style star has long been a huge fan of, but it never quite caught on with other fashionistas.

We’re talking about her penchant for short-sleeved or pushed-up-sleeved outerwear. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Stuart Weitzman 5050 boot, she rocked the style at the Stuart Weitzman & Gilt digital pop-up shop launch in New York City.

If this is the first time you’re noticing Olivia Palermo’s love for this look, see below for more instances when she felt compelled to expose her inner sleeves.

Some looks were cute, but some seemed contrived. We can’t deal with all that bunching at the elbows, not to mention the wrinkly sleeves from keeping them always pushed up.

Fashion insiders are notorious for not putting their arms through the sleeves of their jackets. Olivia Palermo’s layered-sleeve look isn’t as bad as that, but it is still sort of anti-sleeve.

We don’t know what’s with all the sleeve hate — they’re fantastic at keeping arms warm! Do you think Olivia Palermo should stop trying to make this look happen or not?

If you love Olivia Palermo’s style regardless, check out our three short-sleeved picks below, which we think OP herself would approve of.
