A recipe for fresh summer style from Nicole Richie: 1) Take a printed maxi dress – cap sleeves, high neck, floor-sweeping are the proportions you want right now; 2) Team it with a pair of mules – pointy–toed and stack-heeled; 3) Toughen it up with some punky ear jewellery and a shade of hair dye more commonly associated with your great granny Mable. 4) Finish off with a swanky pair of designer sunglasses. Further notes: the austere, almost Edwardian style of this dress is offset nicely by the fact it's sheer; wear black underwear (big pants are a must) underneath and recruit an equally stylish mate to strut down the street with for added impact.
