Olivia Palermo wearing Zara

Olivia threw us a major fashion curveball with her latest ensemble...

Olivia Palermo is no stranger to pulling off what would be a questionable look on anyone else with ease but even we were surprised when she managed to get this quirky trick right. 

We clocked the 28-year-old It girl and all-round outfit-inspirer heading to lunch with a pal in New York City rocking a bright yellow waistcoat from Paul & Joe. However it was her dress that really caught our attention, mainly because it's NOT actually a dress... How sneaky. 

The seasoned shopper will remember this number better as an asymmetric midi skirt from Zara's early SS14 collection that flew off the shelves in a flash thanks to its £39.99 price tag. With a tight elastic waistband, Olivia shows us how to get double the wear out of it - by spinning it as a bandeau frock. What a pro, huh? 

Just days after she gave us this styling trick to pine over, her latest get-up only proves that Olivia Palermo is on a major fashion roll. Lets face it, when isn't she? Keep up the good work, OP.
