Nicky Hilton feels lucky to have two daughters because she feels they entertain each other 24/7. She has been living in Malibu with her family for the last few weeks of summer and is gearing up to get both her kids back to school safely. Her oldest, Lily-Grace, will be entering kindergarten at a new school, which she finds exciting.
She also just launched her Nicky Hilton x French Sole Fall/Winter 2021 Collection and so we spoke to her to find out a bit more about her fashion choices!
LEMON Magazine [LEMON]: Has motherhood changed your way of looking at fashion?
Nicky Hilton [N.H.]: Definitely. When I’m dressing my kids, I’m all about practicality, which means as few buttons and zippers as possible.
[LEMON]: What is your go-to piece?
[N.H.]: I do love my pair of dungarees from my Dotty Dungarees collection. There’s something so sweet and childlike about them. And I’m very much into the one and done piece.
[LEMON]: What’s the most precious piece of clothing you own?
[N.H.]: My dress from my christening that my mother kept for me.
[LEMON]: Do you have a fashion role model?
[N.H.]: My mum is someone’s whose style I really admire because she’s always stylish yet comfortable at the same time. It’s very effortless.
[LEMON]: What’s your favourite style of jeans, the one you think is most flattering?
[N.H.]: I’m a skinny jeans girl. Even though I just heard skinny jeans are going out of style, I’m sticking with them.
[LEMON]: Do you still have any of your childhood clothes? Do your daughters wear them? If so, how do you feel about that?
[N.H.]: My mom saved a lot of Paris’s and I’s holiday dresses that my daughters wear. They’re really beautiful in all the holiday velvet and lace trims. They don’t make clothes like that anymore.
[LEMON]: Which items in our closet should we invest our money in, and which are ok to buy on the cheap?
[N.H.]: I think it’s important to invest in the classics because they will be in your wardrobe for years to come; like a great blazer, trench coat or black dress. And I tend to not spend as much money on trendier items because they don’t have a very long shelf life.
[LEMON]: Can you tell us some of your favourite brands to wear?
[N.H.]: I love Brock Collection. It’s very feminine, Victorian, has lots of florals and lace and is very romantic.
[LEMON]: And for the kids?
[N.H.]: I love Maisonette’s line Maison Me. I think it’s really cute, age appropriate, good quality and well-priced.
