Socialite Olivia Palermo obviously always looks great as  seen on MTV reality show The City, on magazine covers, and when photographed out and about. There's no denying that the girl has great style so we're taking a style lesson from her: how to brighten up your winter wardrobe. All you need is one statement piece. A classic piece in a bright color is a way to add a little color to brighten up your winter. 

Get the Look: Olivia Palermo

The yellow coat Olivia is wearing, above, is from Old Navy and is unfortunately out of stock. However, you can grab it in orange! It's currently on sale for $20 so act fast before it's sold out.

Another coat to add to your closet: blue J.Crew Peacoat. It's nicely tailored, fits great, and is a wonderful blue. (There are also neutral colors - navy, black, light brown -  if you would really rather have a non-bright coat).

The gray Nine West loafers are a great addition to an outfit where a top you're wearing is the main focus. They're cute yet don't take away too much attention from the coat.

For those of us who can't afford leather jeans, the 7 for all Mankind Coat Jeans above are the perfect pair to make it look like you spent $1,000 on leather. The jeans are coated with a leather-like finish and have a satiny feel. When you're wearing all black with a statement piece, you can feel like you look a little drab, but these jeans will pick your outfit right back up.

Accessories wise, the chevron geometric studs are a simple, but nice add to your outfit.

And of course, where would an outfit be without a great bag? The black Michael Kors Satchel is the perfect everyday bag.
