Wearing an all black outfit can easily turn into boring and basic. But look no further than Nicole Richie for an example of how to make the neutral color interesting and modern. While Richie was promoting her line House of Harlow 1960 in Los Angeles yesterday, her outfit gave us a few tips to keep in mind when wearing an all black outfit. For one, note that she is mixing different textures and fabrics–it’s not all silk like a nightgown or all cotton like sweatpants, there’s variety.

Then, take a look at her accessories that definitely downplay the femininity of the coat. Her ankle boots are menswear inspired, and the belt adds a bit of toughness to the softness of her coat. Worn with a plain t-shirt and slightly baggy skinny jeans, it’s a look full of proportions and inspiration that’ll make this a foolproof when you want to try it for yourself.
