When all else fails, go for an all-black ensemble. The most classic, tried and true look, it is a go-to for the fashion set, especially when cold temperatures hit.
Nicole Richie went for all-black while at LAX Airport. She chose Helmut Lang’s Mongolian Fur Combo Jacket and paired it with black skinnies and accessories from her own House of Harlow 1960 line: the Linsey Sunglasses and Hope Beaded Platform Booties. Such a great cold weather look comprised of statement-making pieces. Since an all-black look can be slightly dull, a mix of textures can help to take it to the next level, shown in Nicole’s look with shearling, leather, beads and so much more.
The Linsey Sunglasses ($143) are a no brainer as cat eye shades are always in. Though a splurge, buying anything from Helmut Lang is a great investment. The Mongolian Fur Combo Jacket ($1550) will keep you warm all Fall and Winter long. The Hope Beaded Platform Booties ($295) are a great way to make your holiday looks festive or if you want to get fancy for everyday. Boasting a 4″ heel, they are functional and will look great with a number of looks from one like Nicole Richie’s to a LBD and black tights for a night out.
This is very much like her ensemble at the 18th Annual QVC FFANY Shoes On Sale Event in New York City at which she went for Helmut Lang and House of Harlow 1960 accessories as well. The two brands seem to be a perfect fit so I am looking forward to seeing how she combines them both in the future.
