Style Snapshot: Nicole Richie

|
If you received an Express lookbook for Spring you may be familiar with their Festival Chic Collection (see it here) full of peasant tops, floral rompers, and cutoff jean shorts that have Coachella written all over them. This entire collection reminds me of Nicole Richie, who seems to have this style down to an art.

Check out the way she styles some of her signature pieces, along with some similar options from Express that seem like they would fit well with her style:

Boho Tank Tops:

Express Options:
Boho tanks - Express

One / Two / Three /Four

Flowy Blouses:

Express Options:
Boho - Peasant blouses via Express

One / Two / Three / Four

And here are some options for complete Nicole Richie-inspired looks via Express:

Even though I admire Nicole's style, it's pretty far removed from my own. But amazingly I was able to find one outfit of hers that I could imitate from my own closet:
Leopard Scarf: Express / Cardigan: Express (Current Option) / T-Shirt: Old Navy / Tights: Target / Booties: Target / Jean Shorts: DIY

I was surprised that I kind of liked this outfit once I had it all on. It was comfortable, fun and different (for me). And the monochromatic tights and booties made me feel tall and leggy, which is rare when you're 5'4". I'm not sure where I'd wear it though...Sunday brunch? The mall? A quirky coffee shop? It makes me wonder how Nicole spends her days!

  1. I would never have guessed you're 5'4. You look so tall in all your outfit posts. I love this look. It's different than anything else you featured on the blog. Have a wonderful week!

  3. Nicole Richie certainly knows how to rock the boho chic style and I actually love that look but don't think it's for me. The black tights and denim shorts look can be a little tricky but as always, you pull it off fabulously. My vote goes to your recreation.

  4. Nicole definitely has a style of her own! I'm not sure I can pull any of it off though...by body type is way more curvy-er and those flowy tops tend to make me look preggers...hahaha!! Love the floral tank from Express though! And I like the outfit you tried...I tend to like the tights under the shorts look though! It's refreshing to try something outside of your box though, isn't it?

  9. After seeing Nicole Richie speak at Lucky Fabb, I really don't think I could love her style more! She had lavender hair that worked so well on her. And FYI she mentioned she spends a lot of time in her garden these days.

  10. I love Nicole's boho vibe, that is all I want to wear during the Summer. I cannot wait to check out Express's selection of peasant tops I can never pass up a vintage-y looking top. I've done the shorts and tights, it is fun and I've worn this look to brunch actually lol http://pinksole.com/2013/12/plaid-bows/

  11. Great choice! I love your celebrity break downs. I have been on the look out for a white flowy top since pinning the top middle picture a year ago. Nicole always looks so cool but I don't know if I can pull off her vibe. I think you totally did with your recreation. I love the tights. A lot!!! BTW - you look so much taller than 5'4". I'm the same height and look every miniscule inch. HAHA

  12. It is an interesting idea that wearing NIcole's outfit made you wonder what she does with her day! Thanks for sharing and thanks so much for hosting.

  13. Great post! It's amazing how easy you make it look to find things that celebs are wearing (esp all at one store) you rock girl! I love Nicole's style especially that white bohemian tank! To die for!

  14. She's so effortless, I kind of hate her for that! Haha
    Great way of interpreting her style. I'm all over this boho look though I don't look as elegant as she does. More baloony. Not to be confused with baloney.
    And I love the tights and shorts! Matching tights and shoes is the best part about winter! Anything I can do to create visually longer legs for me is great! Awesome recreation! Http://morepiecesofme.com

    1. Yeah, I think boho can go sloppy and wrong, but putting this post together has definitely influenced me to try more boho stuff, especially for summer.

  17. So, I went and check out Express store here in Dubai and based on what I saw there and on your blog, I can conclude that Dubai store didn't get most of the good stuff! I ended up buying some jewelry instead. I will definitely check Express out when I visit the US next :)

    1. Aw, sorry to hear they didn't have a good selection in your store! I didn't even know they had ANY Express stores in Dubai, but I love their jewelry too so I'm glad they had something for you. I have three stores in my area and the selection varies a lot. One I don't even go in anymore because it's so small, one is medium, and one has pretty everything they have online and more. Location makes a big difference!

  22. I love her style! It's definitely more edgy and of course bohemian than I'm used to wearing myself, but I love how effortless and free spirited it looks. The flowy tanks are calling my name to wear with shorts!

  23. I love Nicole's style, it's perfect for me! The flowly tops, floral prints and the whole bohemian look I love and will start wearing it more for the summer.

  25. "Meeting the parents"...that's one option you didn't think of...or church? (If you don't believe that people wear bootie shorts to church...come check out gilbert, AZ!) Anyway, you look really cute and Nicole has some fantastic outfits.

    1. Oh yes..CHURCH. Why didn't I think of that? I can't imagine they're bothering with the tights in AZ though!

  30. I think Nicole Richie has great style. You did an amazing job at recreating her looks. I like the look that you recreated for yourself, it is one that I could possibly see myself wearing too.
