Half of Hollywood has relocated to London for the time being to watch the nearly two-week long tennis extravaganza that is Wimbledon. Obvious spectators like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton spent some time cheering on players from the stands last week. And now, a few more notable names officially joined the attendees list. Nicole Richie — and her cool white sneakers — are the latest to make an appearance at the tennis championship.

Though Wimbledon isn't necessarily a fashion-focused event, the spectators have certainly pulled out some of their best style moves to date. Middleton, for example, stunned in a white, button-front dress that was the definition of summertime elegance, while Markle showed up in her favorite pinstriped blazer (and her go-to straw hat). But the one celeb-approved outfit formula you'll want to commit to memory for the time being? Richie's, because it's just so easy to replicate.

On July 8, the designer, alongside husband Joel Madden, stepped out for day seven of the two-week long tennis tournament — and it's safe to say she earns a spot on Wimbledon's best-dressed list. Richie sported a floor-grazing, floral-print maxi dress from her own fashion label, House of Harlow 1960. The frock, which makes for the cutest one-and-done summertime getup around, features a split neckline with a tassel tie closure, a smocked elastic waist, and ruffled sleeves.

Rather than pairing the dress with lace-up espadrilles or slip-on sandals, Richie decided to slip into white, low-top Nike sneakers — a style move that added the perfect amount of cool-girl edge to her otherwise sweet warm-weather look. The best part about these celeb-approved kicks, besides the fact that they boast a minimalist, pair-with-everything design, is their price tag. Sneaker prices can quickly skyrocket, but Richie's ring in at a reasonable $75.

Richie joins a long list of celebs to sport the it-combo of the summer (read: a dress with sneakers), but she's one of the first to wear a floor-grazing frock with the sporty shoes. Whether you wear one with a short, mid-length, or extra-long hemline, one thing's for certain: A pair of white kicks is all you need to make the a classic summer dress feel exponentially cool.
