Nicole Richie could easily walk away this summer with a badge boasting 'Most Improved Style'. With the images of her once frightful zebra-striped locks, or her waif-ish frame balancing a flannel shirtdress, cowboy boots, and —of course—her signature oversized sunglasses still fresh in our minds, we still can't really believe what we are seeing today. Richie's personal style has completely changed since becoming a wife and mother in the past couple years with her priorities having clearly shifted from Paris' wild parties to caring for her daughter. Now with anther one on the way, Richie's taste truly seems to have evolved into a quiet, subdued chic that caters more to her current status of on-the-go mom rather than a magnet for DUIs and paparazzi.

Richie seemed to have sensed the change herself when she announced last year that she would be launching her own jewelry and accessories line. With a nod to her daughter Harlow, the collection House of Harlow 1960 features deco-inspired earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that are equals parts rockstar (homage to husband Joel Madden?) and retro glam. Richie seamlessly incorporated pieces from the line into her own boho chic style and appears photographed in House of Harlow 1960 often, which created frantic buzz about the line early on. But unlike many celebrity ventures into design who believe only the elite deserve to bear their name, Richie wisely made her items actually affordable and as a result, has been enjoying sellout status from various web stores on both sides of the Atlantic.

After the immense popularity the items have seen since debuting on earlier this month, Richie seems to have confirmed that now is the best time to expand. The former socialite has just announced that she is working on a new House of Harlow collection scheduled for spring 2010 that will include clothing and shoes in addition to new accessory designs. She recently described the stylistic elements of the upcoming additions as ""more on old English, equestrian and more sophisticated looks." If the new collection is as wildly popular as the first, Richie will hopefully continue to the evolve the chic and wearable line she once referred to as, "a dream come true."
