Nicole Richie took her fashion prowess to the seventh annual Teen Vogue Fashion University in NYC, and spoke with aspiring fashion industry professionals about her work and personal style. She showed off her signature bohemian-glam aesthetic in a black velvet dress with batwing sleeves and a swingy asymmetrical hem from her Winter Kate collection. Not only does Nicole's look inspire a cool Stevie Nicks vibe, but it also reminds us just how much we love velvet for Fall and Winter. It's a great, slightly heavier fabric that is an ideal replacement for Summer's breezy cottons and linens, and happens to look especially amazing when worn to holiday parties.
