So You Wanna Dress Like Nicole Richie
Fashion Star’s lives up to the show’s title at a party in its honor, wearing a zig-zag print yellow-and-black sheath, bright red pumps and a trendy topknot.
DO THE WAVE
She’s made our top 10 list of stars with wardrobes we’d love to have. And here’s the look that won us over: an embroidered black mini with a cropped Mulberry jacket, plus cat-eye shades and Casadei heels, which she sported in N.Y.C.
JUMP(SUIT) FOR MY LOVE
When back home in L.A., Nicole’s style gets a little more relaxed. She’s often seen around town in colorful printed maxis and jumpsuits, to which she often adds a standout element like a cool graphic headscarf or luxe-looking bag.
BLACK, WHITE & RED ALL OVER
Even the simplest pairing (a white top and a black skirt) looks super cool and polished when styled by Nicole. An asymmetrical hemline, jeweled belt and bold lip color make an otherwise basic outfit perfect for an evening out in N.Y.C.
ORANGE YOU GLAD
Though often spotted in neutrals, the star shows no fear of taking a risk in brights, going all-out in numbers like this flirty tangerine frock, worn with a contrasting belt and peep-toes, plus cherry red lips.
Again proving the power of going casual – but never sloppy – Nicole makes cutoffs look classy with her oversize red-and-white kimono top, aviator shades and sexy wedge espadrilles to run errands in L.A.
When a dress packs this much impact, it doesn’t need much else to make a strong statement. She keeps the accessories to a minimum, rocking patent booties and a retro-inspired updo.
WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Animal print has been considered a neutral for a while now, but Nicole injects some life into the look by picking a top in the spring’s hottest shade – mint – then pairing it with skinny jeans, oversize shades and citrus accessories.
You’ll rarely spot the star in a pair of blue jeans, but she does like to work denim into her wardrobe via worn-in jackets. When paired with a chain-strap bag, printed mini and heels, it subs in for a blazer and makes the whole outfit look way cooler.
