Your Perfect Saturday Outfit Has Everything to Do With Olivia Wilde

We get it: Saturdays are for kicking back, but that doesn't mean you have to let your styling edge fall by the wayside. In fact, there's an easy solution to tomorrow's off-duty look, and it has everything to do with Olivia Wilde. The actress stepped out for the Anna Karenina premiere in NYC in a wintry mix of polished layers. Sure, there's a little bit of a prepster feel, too, but even nontraditional stylers would do well by a quick pop of plaid. Here's the quick breakdown (so you can assemble a similarly chic outfit and head to brunch with minimal effort). Style a tartan-printed blouse with your coziest knitted sweater — cable-knit, fisherman, cashmere, angora, it all works. Add your favorite pair of skinny jeans and ankle-cut boots; the slim-meets-no-frills silhouette on bottom will help to even out the chunkier layers on top. Then, focus your attention on the final outerwear touches à la Olivia. Her sleek black coat and ribbed gray scarf provide the functionality of a great cold-weather ensemble and keep the cool, classic vibe intact. Got all that? Now, shop the pieces below to complete your Saturday transformation. You can thank us (and Olivia) later.
