Nicole Richie recently spoke to Yahoo Lifestyle about the one fashion rule she always breaks.
“There is that big rule of ‘Before you leave take one thing off’ and I’m like, ‘Before you leave you need to put one more thing on’ but that’s just me.”
She also explains why she avoids the word ‘trend’: “I actually really encourage my customers to stay away from the word ‘trend’ because I think it is extremely limiting and very alienating. It just means that the majority of people are wearing it right now. That’s not something the serves me, I couldn’t even tell you a trend right now if you paid me.”
“I am 5’1, and I am myself. It just doesn’t serve me to focus on what the majority of people are wearing. And in that, I couldn’t say that something doesn’t work. It’s a very personal choice.”
Nicole also says why she never looked to others for ideas on how to style herself: “For me, it’s less about an aesthetic that I want to emulate and more about the people that really go for their look in full force.
My love for fashion started with mum. She was going to every event with my dad in the 80s and she was out every night. While we have very different styles – it was the act of watching her put her looks together that really inspired me to go into clothing myself.”
