The most flawless fancy-night ensembles consist of two pieces: a silk camisole and a luxe skirt that somehow come together to suggest they're a dress. When Olivia Palermo showed up to the 7th Annual DVF Style Awards, hosted at the United Nations, she was wearing just that. It's almost impossible to tell her look consists of separates. Her mixed-media tank is tucked into her sequined midi just right, and her asymmetrical hem mirrors her crisscross neckline.
While Olivia's been known to come up with quite a few hacks on her own, we can't give her full credit for this move. After all, both of her pieces are by Diane von Furstenberg. But when accessorized with a smart clutch, stunning diamond choker, and peep-toe pumps that offer major sex appeal, the outfit is signature Olivia. Lucky for us, we can shop her exact Frederica top along with plenty of similar skirts now. Just read on to get inspired, then scoop up the not-so-basic basics.
