It's clearly not a secret that whenever fashion's brightest A-listers step out, they consistently look better than most. But it's not magic that takes their outfits to the next level. Sure, some work with stylists and just naturally have that inherent sense of style, but their perfect looks are also thanks to unique styling tricks that make their ensembles feel special.
To give you a sense of the game-changing style secrets some of our favorite It girls like Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, and Gigi Hadid love, we rounded up seven of the best tricks to try below.

Layering a turtleneck under a button-down or shirtdress gives your overall look that sort of "cool crispness," as Vogue as pointed out. It really is the simplest way to make your ensemble infinitely chicer without trying so hard.
We love the tailoring on Olivia's trousers here. The just-sweeping-the-floor style mixed with the high-waist detail makes her overall silhouette appear taller and leaner. Invest in a similar style of pants and you can lengthen your frame, too.
One of the number one style tricks we live by (just like Kendall Jenner)? The three-piece rule. Toss on a vest (like KJ here) and you've made your outfit, well, an outfit.
It may seem simple, but you can't deny the power of a great belt. Not only can this specific accessory accentuate your waist and make you look slimmer, it can also make a standard blazer feel more unique and different. We love Rosie's silhouette here!
If there's one trend that will look good on everyone, it's the off-the-shoulder look. Just look at Alexa Chung here. So next time you're choosing between a regular top or dress and something like this, go this route!
If you're on the hunt for the perfect way to wear denim for a fancier night out, turn to Selena Gomez for inspiration and go for a cropped flair with slight distressing at the hem. Add strappy sandals and a sleek coat, and you're set.
Skinny scarves and tops with built-in tie details have been spotted on the street style elite this entire season. And we totally understand why. It's an unexpected way to look polished and regal without trying so hard. Plus it draws attention upward to your face, elongating your silhouette. Just look at Gigi Hadid here for guidance.
