After months of being bundled up beyond recognition, there’s something delightfully refreshing about a bare ankle. Yesterday, Olivia Palermo risked frozen feet to give her usual booties a break — and just one glance is sure to change your winter shoe game.
Palermo cleverly cuffed her leather leggings, putting her suede loafers — an Olivia signature — on full display. The secret to pulling off flats sans socks without getting frostbite? Keep the rest of your outfit maximum-level cozy. Since we’ve reached the point of the season where putting on your winter coat for the billionth time can feel unbearable, Olivia nixed her usual topper and instead opted for a cape. A fur-trimmed, navy number is a sleek alternative that provides ample warmth and doesn't make us want to hibernate. The bright-white croc handbag adds another seasonally unexpected touch. It works, though, because of the killer color contrast. Also because it’s Olivia. Fortunately, you can work this genius look, too.
