Olivia Palermo may have chosen to stick with the basics when building her look, but the result was an outfit that’s anything but basic. The classic lines of a black maxi skirt get an elegant makeover with Grecian-style draping and a tulip hem, which allow Palermo to show a bit of leg and spotlight her strappy snakeskin sandals—an adorable accent that would have otherwise been lost in the shuffle. She dresses up a simple coffee-colored tee with a loose khaki jacket, reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent’s safari jackets of the 1960s. A nude belt nips Palermo at the waist, adding structure, while her rich mahogany clutch and subtle gold bracelets complete a separates ensemble that transitions effortlessly from day to night.
The socialite-model-actress skillfully worked separates in a neutral palette that puts the focus on classically elegant draping and expert tailoring. Click on the products below to shop!
