Have you ever wanted to try wearing your denim cutoffs with tights but you’re hesitant it’s going to look like you’re trying too hard? The bohemian babe shows you how to effortlessly pull it off — you probably have what you need lying around your closet!
It’s no secret I have a huge girl crush on Nicole Richie — while I think most stars look best on the red carpet, I think the multi-tasking mom looks even better when she’s showing off her everyday style. Just check out her get-up from Jan. 6 — Nicole often wears denim shorts with tights, and the star took the opportunity to show off how she, once again, has mastered the art of pulling off this trend. I have to be honest, this isn’t something I would willingly throw on, but I love the way it looks! Considering how she kept the rest of her get-up simple, it wouldn’t be hard to recreate the outfit. Read my tips below & check out my picks if you’re looking for the perfect accessories to pull the look together.
The first thing you’ll need is a basic pair of shorts — while Nicole has opted for high-waisted cutoffs, if you would feel more comfortable in a short that’s a bit longer that can work too! Throw on a pair of opaque tights and black shoes — the shorts are eye-catching enough without working with crazy footwear. Nicole’s suede pumps look great because it breaks up the look without taking away from the overall outfit.
Next, tuck a basic, loose-fitting burnout tee or a basic cotton top into the shorts — again, this is something I’m sure you have lying around! Be careful with the jacket or coat you choose — you don’t want to go for something cropped because the shorts are short enough, but at the same time if it’s too long you won’t look like you have anything else on when you turn around!
While I recommend keeping your look simple, when it comes to the accessories have some fun, just like Nicole did! The crucial components that make her look so chic are the bright purse and patterned scarf. The stylish star took it even further and threw on a hat and shades — feel free to experiment and pair your get-up with what you feel most comfortable in.
Even if you’re thinking you would never wear denim shorts in the winter, I hope you’re inspired to experiment — you can look just as chic as the bohemian babe!
