Olivia Palermo's Chic Animal Instincts

Olivia Palermo (Getty, Bauer Griffin)Olivia Palermo is the master of accessorizing, the master of street styling, and the master of mixing and matching—but did you know she's also nailed the art of animal print?

As we've witnessed from glimpses of The Jersey Shore, animal prints don't automatically equate to chicness. Olivia, however, has figured out the formula for walking on the wild side. We've homed in on three tricks she uses to pull it off seamlessly.

1. Classy Cuts: You won't see Olivia in a Zebra print bodycon mini, she sticks to knee-length hems or flouncy fits and stays conservative even if there's a thigh-high slit involved.

2. Natural Colors: No neon leopard spots here, OP keeps the centerpiece pattern sophisticated in only black or brown.

3. Playful Accessories: The fashion maven never lets the look get too serious and has fun with funky jewelry, statement bags, and unexpected footwear.

See how she works her magic with these three ensembles:
