While many of the shows on day four of London Fashion Week were expressions in the ranks of the avant-garde, the fashion pack chose to lead the sidewalk in a completely different vein.

Bringing the focus to conventional sartorial tailoring and a neutral palette, style icon Olivia Palermo oozes classic elegance in an expertly layered all-black ensemble. And you can't get more quintessentially Brit when draped in a smart camel trench coat, preferably in bold windowpane uplifted by a fringed hemline for extra style points. In this play of street style versus runway, you've got to admit that fashion mirrors the universe at large — it's all about nailing contrast and balance.
