Ok, so we know Olivia Palermo never really gets it wrong but she her latest get up was oh-so right thanks to one simple styling trick. 

The 28-year-old socialite and general all-round outfit inspirer stepped out in New York with her new husband Johannes Huebl for the premiere of Woody Allen's latest film, Magic In The Moonlight, rocking what could have been a very standard bandeau frock. 

Sartorially savvy as ever, Olivia turned the demure dress into something pine-worthy thanks to her chunky, mannish leather belt. 

Cinched in perfectly at her waist, the boyish accessory instantly makes her navy dress look 100% cooler. It's not the first time Olivia has stolen some fashion tips from the boys; when she first popped up on our style radar, we saw her style up a mens waistcoat over a floaty floral dress, proving that this is one styling trick she puts into practice again and again.

Yep, this is one dressing hack we'll definitely be trying this weekend; just be sure you ask your man's permission before you start poking holes in his expensive Hugo Boss belt...
