Three Key Day-To-Night Style Staples

While we’re not suggesting every purchase should be a practical one, there are few things as satisfying as finding a versatile piece that slips into your wardrobe seamlessly and breathes new life into old sartorial favourites. Not an A-lister to shun wearing the same thing twice, Olivia Palermo has relied on a few key staples of late; namely a fur gilet, a monochrome sweater and a plaid shirt.

Working the same three pieces both by day and by night, scroll through the above looks to discover how covetable the practical can be.

The Fur Gilet

A sartorial staple that’s been taken to every fashion capital, Olivia’s Salvatore Ferragamo fur tops a fringed LBD at night with the same ease that it does a prim pencil skirt during the day; a worthy investment.

The Monochrome Sweater

Transforming a monochrome Tibi sweater from Sports Luxe centrepiece to ladylike layer, Olivia swapped side-striped leggings for printed trousers and topped the evening look with a tailored jacket.

The Plaid Shirt

Using the same principle of deliberately clashing patterns in both looks, Olivia lets the plaid shirt do the talking, buttoning it up under a bouclé tweed short suit by day and letting it add an air of nonchalance to night time chic by tying it in a knot at her waist. Still not convinced? Try the daytime look out with one of your boyfriend’s shirts first.
