Nicole Richie: I have to bust moves in my outfits

Reality-star-turned-fashion-designer Nicole Richie has shared her tips on dressing for meeting your other half's parents.

American star Nicole Richie makes sure every outfit she wears allows her to spontaneously break into dance.

The TV-personality-turned-fashion-designer has become a style icon with her on-trend ensembles and label House of Harlow 1960, which boasts everything from jewellery to clothing. Sharing her top tips on what to wear for certain events, Nicole stressed the importance of feeling relaxed above everything else.

“I would go the route of wearing a tuxedo," she told Refinery29 on alternatives to a gown for a black-tie occasion. "(There) are ways to look great without feeling uncomfortable. Comfort is everything to me. I cannot walk out of my house, be out for seven hours, and not feel like I can break into a dance at any moment, so it’s about finding that fit you’re comfortable in. Everyone can find it; it might not be what everyone else is wearing, but it is out there!”

Nicole also used her fashion expertise to advise people on how to dress when meeting your other half's conservative parents. The 34-year-old beauty thinks females should go for a sophisticated and young ensemble, suggesting a white T-shirt paired with black slacks. For a splash of colour, Nicole noted she'd add a slick of red or orange lipstick.

When she isn't on the red carpet or attending a glamorous party, Nicole keeps busy looking after her kids Harlow, seven, and Sparrow, six, who she has with husband Joel Madden. Again, feeling good trumps looking fab, and there's one item of clothing she tries to avoid.

“I think this question to myself all the time!" she laughed when asked what she wears when running errands. "My first thought is, put on jeans. My next thought is, I hate jeans. They’re uncomfortable, and after hour four, who wants to feel like that? I’d go with jean shorts, if the weather is appropriate. Or maybe a jumpsuit - Raquel Allegra makes really great jumpsuits.”
