Get the look: Olivia Palermo in Elizabeth and James

That Olivia Palermo is one well-dress woman, isn’t she? Proving polished city styling can still be cool and relaxed, Palermo looked effortlessly elegant at New York’s Timex launch last week wearing a silk lace shirt, blurred burnt orange skirt and Elizabeth and James peep-toe boots. We can’t help but feel this easy day-to-night outfit will come in handy for this awkward weather, so naturally, we’ve been on the hunt for a similar style.

And if, like us, you fancy recreating her look, then read on, girls.

Diane Von Furstenberg Ruffle bib blouse, £225, Selfridges

This pirate-meets-prairie victoriana blouse from Diane Von Furstenberg is a simple style statement, and with delicate ruffle detailing it adds a cool update to your classic white shirt. Make like Olivia and tuck it into your skirt, leaving a few buttons undone at the top to elongate your neck.

Crinkles silk tempest skirt, £89.60 ($138), J. Crew

We love Olivia’s soft chiffon skirt with a blurred graphic print, and luckily, we’ve found a similar version at J. Crew. In seasonal shades of burnt orange and brown, it’s just tough enough for the new season while still keeping a feminine feel with its delicate draping detail.

Acne Fusion Leather Lace Up Wedge, £311,

Olivia’s Elizabeth and James lace up peep-toe booties add a touch of utilitarian to her luxe look. We love Acne’s Fusion wedge versions which aren’t only comfortably cool, but also have a suede heel to add a subtle hint of texture.

Antique Detail Croc Satchel, £42, Urban Outfitters

Keep things ladylike and sophisticated by accessorising with a hand-held mock-croc bag in a rich brown. We’re especially taken with Urban Outfitters’ shrunken satchel, which comes with a detachable cross-body strap to double up for daytime, too.
