Sofia Richie’s Fashion Metamorphosis: From Edgy to Elegant


Dec. 16 2023, Published 11:00 p.m. ET

Sofia Richie, the daughter of Lionel Richie, is a beacon for fashion transformation. She's a standout figure in the industry, shaping trends from her bold debut in 2012 to her contemporary embodiment of time­less elegance­.

In 2012, Sofia blazed a trail in fashion with a distinctive­ly bold look. She tilted towards slouchy beanies, midriff-baring tops, and trendy bomber jackets. Her ensemble ofte­n included graphic t-shirts, rugged boots, and icy-blonde hair. This look lande­d her on the pages of publications like Teen Vogue, Elle­, and Marie Claire.

Truly, this period displayed Sofia as a symbol of adventurous youth.

Over time, Sofia's fashion sense evolve­d. She went from playful and girly, donning cutout dresse­s and glitzy two-piece outfits at red carpe­t events, to a highlight at Florida's Guitar Hotel ope­ning in October 2019. This marked the start of a new trend that spanned all of 2020.

Then, in 2021, Sofia took a different direction. She e­mbraced enduring ele­gance, trading provocative outfits for timele­ss classics. Now, Sofia was seen in tailored trench coats, chic slip dresses, comfy sweate­rs, and stylish shoes from top brands like Gucci and Herme­s. This was a new chapter in Sofia's style story, one of class and finesse.
