Wear Winter Black Like Jessica Stam, Nicky Hilton, And Whitney Port

If you’re not careful, wearing black in the winter can completely drag down your look. Seriously, when did a little snow flurry and the occasional ice storm equate to having to dress like we’re going to a funeral? As witnessed at the launch of the Devon flagship store in Beverly Hills on Dec. 8, black-based ensembles can be sexy, trendy, and superfun. Just check out how Jessica Stam, Nicky Hilton, Whitney Port, and Rashida Jones rocked dark and lovely looks…and take notes.

Instead of donning a basic black minidress (which would have been OK), model Jessica Stam, who helped host the Devon store launch, wore one covered in sparkly embellishments.

Another way to make an LBD more interesting is to choose one in an interesting fabric like socialite Nicky Hilton did. Granted, this Devon leather dress cost a whopping $2,250, but you get our point—play with fabrics!

Whitney Port brightens her black blazer, military green tights and black booties by slipping into a summery white slip dress. Genius!

Actress Rashida Jones looks so laid-back and cool in a Devon printed chiffon top, which she paired with a jean jacket, high-waisted/high-water pants, and a smattering of skinny jewelry.
