Olivia Palermo Steps Into Fall — One Ballet Flat at a Time

Because the shift to Fall isn't exactly like hitting a switch, we're looking to Olivia Palermo's polished daytime look for a lesson in chic transitional dressing. The style pro outfitted a white pleated skirt and printed tie-front blouse while out and about in NYC, giving us the perfect blend of breezy fabrics and Autumn-feeling separates. This is how it's done:

  • It may not be the time to sport white cutoffs, but Olivia's pleats still feel light and breezy on warmer days without an exclusively "Summer" feel. We love how she plays off the classic, schoolgirl-inspired pleats that feel inherently like Fall.
  • Upgrade your top like Olivia and switch out tanks and strappy tops for breathable button-downs. You won't be overheated, but a silky button-down, especially with pretty details like a tie-front, look infinitely more polished.
  • At the root of Olivia's flawless style are great accessories. Notice how she's swapped out her raffia tote for a more seasonal gray leather satchel. Likewise, it's time to ditch the flip-flops. If you're looking for the kind of footwear that makes for easy transitional style, snag a pair of ballet flats like Miss Palermo; they're walkable, easy to throw in your bag, and feel seasonal without making the full-blown switch to boots when it's still 70 degrees outside.
