This is how you dress up when all you want to wear is jeans

As the temperature continues to drop, it gets harder to make an effort. But if jeans are all you want to wear when you have to dress up, here's how to do it.

Olivia Palermo just gets it right. Even when she's walking her dog in leggings, runners and a parka, she makes it werk. It's infuriating. On me, leisure wear looks sloppy and my hair middle-parted looks less chic, more creep. On Olivia, it's A Look. B*tch. Ah, no; by the number of likes I give her Instagram, she knows I love her.

She is my number one choice when it comes to chic outfit inspiration. A true Fifth Avenue Princess, she shops in the big designer stores, of course, but the good thing about her outfits is that they can easily be copied using stuff you probably already have in your wardrobe.

The ensemble she wore to the launch of Eva Chen's children's book, Juno Valentine, was the epitome of 'I just popped in to wish you well' style. It's so simple: skinny jeans with a white oversized top. Her shoes are flat but fancy (we can help you out there) and - that cape. Remember when capes were all in a couple of seasons? Well, they haven't gone away, obviously. They've always been worn by classy ladies, so get one and you'll have it forever.

To get the look, you honestly can use whatever you have in your wardrobe. If you don't have some of the key pieces, just buy them! They will be wardrobe staples, I promise.

Is Olivia Palermo a style icon of yours? Is there anyone you would like to see featured for a 'Get the Look'?
