As a celebrity journalist it's hard to get me excited about one celebrity in particular, but one buzzed about fashionista that I am always excited to interview or read about is Nicole Richie. Not only is Nicole one of the funniest people I have ever interviewed, but she also seems really grounded despite all of her success, she seems like a great mom, she has amazing style and she is constantly reinventing herself in the business world. She has proved to us all that she is far more than Lionel Richie's daughter or a reality star. Nicole has a fashion line called Winter Kate, an amazingly unique jewelry line, House of Harlow, she guest stars on primetime TV and is now in the works to get her own network sitcom.
Out of everything, Nicole's 70's inspired style and lines make her the most interesting to me. She always looks terrific. in my opinion her celebrity has gotten bigger because of her trend-setting styles.
Recently, the wide-leg, flare jeans and chunky wooden heels are back in style and between Nicole and Rachel Zoe the two are gonna throw a party now that this trend is making a major comeback.
I am in love with this trend for multiple reasons-
1) I love that you can hide super tall heels under the jeans and no one knows! I just look a lot taller than 5'3''
2) I can take my jeans off without pulling a muscle like I do when I have to yank off my painted-on skinny jeans
3) You don't have to be super skinny to wear this trend because the widest part that the eye sees is the bottom of the jean, but you can still have a figure if you wear a form-fitting shirt
4) There are so many great brands to choose from with options ranging from a slight flare, major bell, or wide leg. J Brand, Current/Elliott, Seven for all Mankind, and Siwy are just a few examples that Singer22 sells.
Pair these bell jeans with a button down top and belt to dress it up a bit or be more relaxed like Nicole and wear a cropped tee. Either way, you're sure to get lots of double-takes and Nicole Richie would approve, especially if you put on a wide-brim hat, a chunky, art-deco House of Harlow ring, and platform shoes. You'll be a groovy fashionista.
