When it comes to personal style, I have to admit I am pretty non-committal.
After the RBaby Gala, Mom Trends did a style round and asked me “Who is your personal style icon?”. It was a tough question for me because besides the fact that I’ve never really thought about it, I feel like my style is kind of all over the place.
You know who else is non-committal in their style? Nicole Richie.
Just a few years ago, it may have sounded “cray” to use Nicole Richie and style icon in the same sentence, but she’s come a long way from her Simple Life days. Today Nicole’s style is sometimes boho, sometimes trendy, sometimes sophisticated- but always effortless looking. She launched an accessory line, House Of Harlow 1960 and a clothing line Winter Kate that both reflect her many looks– and if I’m being completely honest? Those headpieces she’s rocking lately totally grew on me.
The Basic Rules To Nicole Richie’s Style:
1- Maxi dresses & shift dresses are a must and can be worn just about anywhere. Dress them up or dress them down. Try a maxi dress flowy and kimono like or form fitting.
2- Own a great boyfriend blazer to make casual looks more business sophisticated.
3.- Get creative with your hair. Try crown braids, side french braids and use a sea salt spray for effortless looking beach waves.
4- Play with Prints. Floral, tribal and animal print are all part of Nicole Richie style. Don’t be afraid to try them all- just not all at the same time.
5- Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Nicole’s clothing is always simple, but her accessories are always a statement. Floppy hats, headpieces, big sunglasses, chunky rings, layered bracelets and necklaces are all part of Nicole Richie style.
