Olivia Palermo Shows Us 3 Ways To Upgrade An Outfit In A Flash

Pant, shirt, vest. A rather simple outfit, but with a few easy accessory upgrades, it could be a total style home run. Take Olivia Palermo's understated black-and-white look that she donned for an event earlier this month. Enhanced with a playful pair of heels, a jeweled clutch, and a crystal brooch, Palermo's got herself a bona fide, red-carpet-worthy ensemble. It highlights her neutral pieces without even a hint of boring.
And, you, too, can embrace colorful accoutrements in a way that won't seem like you're trying too hard. Start with a blank canvas: Pair a silky, black blouse and cropped trousers with a sleek, white waistcoat. Then, here's where the fun comes in: Accent your vest with a sparkly brooch for some unexpected glimmer. Choose an embellished or metallic clutch for extra character, and swap your go-to black pumps for a python print or something equally eye-catching. Remember, it's all in the details.
