How does Olivia Palermo do it? The modern style icon has become a mainstay feature on many a best dressed list for years now—and never put a foot wrong. On Who What Wear, we regularly document the kind of brands she loves, the new places she's shopping, as well as her latest outfit ideas, such is our love and dedication to understanding Palermo's keen sense of style.

Scroll through older photos of Palermo (we're talking circa The City years), and even then it was clear she was a fashion star in the making. While she's definitely honed her look, there are many rules we've learnt (and continue to learn) from OP. Polished but never overtly Upper East Side, preppy but never prim, classic but always with a twist… She's the queen of fashion ratios.

So what are the precise tricks you can employ as your own, you ask? Without further ado, we've dedicated an entire gallery to 20 of Palermo's most effective style tricks and rules—the kind of subtle tweaks that immediately turn any basic outfit into a winner. From accessories to tailoring, we've analysed the lot. Click through our gallery for the best of Olivia Palermo's style tricks.
