Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie, & Keri Hilson


Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie, & Keri Hilson

Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie, and Keri Hilson. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Rachel Bilson’s Pretty Cold Weather Look

Actress Rachel Bilson took the streets of NYC in a pretty, feminine and cold weather-ready look. Rachel wore a white-and-blue floral dress, which she paired with a heavy coat with a fur collar, dark tights and ankle booties. Rachel’s outfit is appropriate for the season, but thanks to the light colors and playful print of her dress, is a cheerful reminder that spring is around the corner.

If you’re tired of dressing in go-to winter pieces, like dark colors and heavy fabrics, Rachel’s outfit will brighten up your look and your outlook on winter. A blue-and-white floral dress with a Bardot neckline can be made winter-appropriate with black tights and a super-warm quilted and belted down jacket.

This coat is a shiny, dark navy hue that perfectly complements the colors of the dress. In addition, it features a faux fur collar similar to Rachel’s coat. Since this is a dressier ensemble, wear heeled black booties and carry a classic quilted handbag.

Look 2: Nicole Richie’s Casual Chic

The always on-trend Nicole Richie was spotted this week wearing loose-fitting boyfriend jeans, printed flats, a cream-colored top, and a leather moto jacket. Nicole’s outfit is comfortable and easy to throw together, but still looks very chic. I am a huge fan of boyfriend jeans, and recommend them to all girls – they can be dressed up or down and are way more comfortable than your everyday skinny jeans.

Nicole’s look works for almost any season, since the top can easily be switched out depending on the temperature. For warmer climates, a light-colored short-sleeve or sleeveless top looks great; for colder climates, a light-colored chunky knit sweater is a chic and cozy choice.

These boyfriend jeans have a similar wash to Nicole’s and can be worn with booties or flats, like this printed pair. Keep accessories minimal: a red-hued infinity scarf offers a slight pop of color, while oversize circular sunglasses capture that retro vibe that Nicole is often rocking.

Look 3: Keri Hilson is Mad About Plaid

Songstress Keri Hilson attended a movie premiere this week wearing a glam black-and-white ensemble. Keri wore a plaid mini dress with sheer paneling on the sleeves and neckline, which she paired with patent black ankle boots and a clutch. Plaid is the print of the moment and there are so many ways to wear it, from more casual everyday looks to dressier versions, like Keri’s.

Choose a plaid mini dress that has a fun, flirty detail to it, whether it’s sheer paneling like Keri’s or the multi-textured dress pictured above. This version features a faux leather bodice, which gives the black-and-white plaid skirt an edgier vibe.

If you need to tone the dress down a bit, pair it with a fitted blazer and black tights. Patent black ankle booties are sleek, and their glossy texture adds a dressy touch. Finish off the look with a small black clutch like this chic quilted minaudière.

    I don’t think you should have featured Nicole Richie this week. Nicole is currently relapsing into her anorexia, and is clearly too thin. She isn’t a fashion icon right now, she’s a very sick girl who needs help. As a woman in recovery, this made me uncomfortable.

    I think she looks thinner because her clothes are baggy. As another woman in recovery, if seeing photos of thin women is triggering, you shouldn’t be looking at fashion websites. Take responsibility for your own recovery.
