For her hosting duties at the Teen Vogue Fashion University event in NYC, Nicole Richie wore one of her Winter Kate designs: this black velvet kimono dress ($405). For accessories, the designer sported black Christian Louboutin pumps and a couple long House of Harlow necklaces: this hammered diamond necklace ($113, originally $125) and this multi-horn necklace ($130). If you've been on the hunt for the perfect little black dress for Fall, consider adding Nicole's exact dress to your mix. The fabric is plush, while the kimono cut gives it a unique spin.
There's something about kimono cuts that give off a Zen-like feel. Is it the wide sleeves or flattering shape? Or maybe it's the robe-inspired cut. Whatever it is, I dig it. Check out this McQ Bird Intarsia Kimono Dress ($293, originally $585). The foldover cut and funky print is the perfect mix of East meets West.
An exotic distant cousin of the wrap dress, this comfy yet sassy dress is very popular these days. Usually found in colorful prints, this is a great dress that can transition from work day to night play with the help of a simple sweater or cardigan. It's always fun to mix it up with an Asian flair. Here are my designer and non-designer picks:
