It's easy to bemoan the current lack of sun/heat/opportunities to wear your summer threads, but Nicole Richie, spotted in New York yesterday, reminded us that there are some good things about the weather being stuck around 19ºC – not least, the joy of matching a bare leg with a cosy layer. Here's how to do it: remember that slinky slip dress you've been rocking all summer? It looks just as bawse teamed with a cosy high-neck knitted jumper, sandals and sunnies as it does riding solo. Keep it simple (life) with all black err'thang pieces and add in teeny pops of colour in the beauty department. We're still crushing on Nic's blue locks, but a less permanent and more office-appropriate option would be an aqua eye, à la Tavi Gevinson. AW14? We're so ready for ya.
