Olivia Palermo's Low-Key Fashion Week Formula Is So Easy to Recreate

Since decoding Olivia Palermo's go-to outfit for both New York Fashion Week and most recently, London Fashion Week, we've come to the realisation that looking 10/10 polished (all the while being comfortable) every day doesn't have to be difficult in anyway. The number one style tip we've observed from Palermo? Her knit + midi skirt + heels outfit formula = low-key amazing. She keeps the look elevated by opting for minimal accessories—a cocktail ring or chain bracelet, and finished off her polished look with sleek hair.

Palermo has invested in uncomplicated, basic knits to match with her more statement and print pieces in her wardrobe. So next time you're getting dressed for work in the mornings, think à la Palermo and recreate this chic and comfortable outfit (which, by the way, is perfect for transeasonal weather).
