Get the Look for Less – Nicole Richie’s Sheer Shirtdress, Black Thongs, Satchel + More
Nicole Richie‘s boho chic look is her signature. She’s all about the play on layers and volume — and you can recreate this sheer, beige shirtdress look, which is perfect for the warm weather months, with relative ease.
The flowy dress is the centerpiece, and T by Alexander Wang has a crinkled, silk chiffon version that retails for $130 on sale. It’s a steal. We didn’t need Jay-Z namedropping him in ‘Suit & Tie’ to know Wang’s one of the hottest designers working today, and you can own one of his pieces for a relatively low price.
Match Richie’s leather thongs — i.e., an upscale flip-flop — with Steven Vega’s version. They’re $91, but you can wear ’em all summer long.
Grab a basic black lace cami from Gap so that you don’t show off too much under that see-through dress. It shouldn’t set you back more than $20, and a sturdy pair of black boy shorts will also help keep the look PG. Victoria’s Secret has a great and comfy selection.
You can copy Richie’s black bag with a studded barrel-shaped one for a steal, courtesy of Madonna’s Material Girl line — the $40 purse only looks expensive.
Nicole’s shades can be mimicked with an oversized Liz Claiborne pair cribbed at JC Penney. (They’re so Jackie O.)
Finish the look with an oval onyx-style ring, which you can grab for $20 and wear with tons of other items you already own. We promise.
The entire look should cost around $300, and it’s versatile enough to wear all the way through September.
