Nicole Richie has come a long way in the past ten years – I’m sure she shudders more than anyone when looking back at images of old – and has now solidly secured her place in the fashion world, both through her own style and that of her clothing lines “House of Harlow” and “Winter Kate”.
I would describe her look as “Boho-Chic” with a distinct element of glam – flowing skirts and headbands are definitely still a feature but a long dress now has an asymmetrical hem line or her headband will have an cute sparkle to accompany a formal dress.
This style is very evident in her Winter Kate clothing line with strong prints and bold colours being the main feature of most of her pieces. Coming in close second to her fabric choices is her obvious love of the loose and flowing, circa 1973 but thankfully updated for 2012 in a more chic and flattering interpretation. She also seems to have found the balance with her silhouettes and shapes – a wide-legged romper is complimented with a strapless top half; a long maxi dress has a high low hemline – following the “fashion rule” of showing some but not all.
She is just one of those celebs who seems to always look stylish – whether she is in a LBD or a pair of boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket. And the fact that you can emulate this style through her (somewhat affordable, depending on who you are) clothing line is a delicious bonus.
