This Olivia Palermo-Inspired Outfit (For Under €240) Is My Autumn Dressing Solution


A solution for boho belles averse to winter wear. 

While people rejoice that it's 'cosy season' and stock up on cardis, scarves, and faux fur everything - I shudder. Not from the cold, but because I really really hate dressing for the elements.

I've always found layering to be a nightmare. Try as I might, I will undoubtedly end up like the Michelin Man swathed in wool and other warm fabrics. Hence my delight when I saw style maven Olivia Palermo with a transitional dressing solution that spoke directly to me. Printed maxi skirt + velvet trophy jacket + army boots = perfect.

Now this, this I could work with. I guess she has earned 5.5 million followers on Instagram and Pinterest fashion board royalty status for good reason. 

I figure I have half of this simple outfit equation already in my loot - and I'm sure you do too. The premise of this formula is also adaptable depending on which AW trends you want to dip your toes into. Here, I've added some on-trend Western boots, and you could also delve into Prairie-inspired territory with a pussy-bow maxi dress underneath your jacket of choice.

Don't you just love fashion maths?
