Olivia Palermo's Trick For Getting The Most Out Of Your Closet

If we know anything about Olivia Palermo, it’s that the trendsetter isn’t afraid to embrace budget-savvy practices, from shopping affordable brands (evidence here, here, and here) to maximizing the number of looks she can get out of a single piece. Palermo was spotted doing the latter last week when she stepped out wearing a Zara midi skirt as a strapless dress. We’re pocketing the genius tip, and recommend you do the same. Just make sure to add structure to the billowy look with a tailored vest, like Palermo, or by adding a belt at your natural waist.

Scroll down to shop your own multi-functioning skirt—P.S.: an elastic waistband is a must!
