Posts Tagged ‘Lauren Conrad’

I’ll be the first to proudly admit that I have a slight infatuation with Lauren Conrad and all the great contributions she has made within her career to the world of ready-to-wear fashion. More than anything, I’m in love with her new fall collection for Kohl’s. I love that she always maintains her signature style both in how she dresses and the designs that she creates for her collections. Many of the pieces are feminine, delicate, and casually elegant in their own way. You can shop most of the styles now both online and in-store.

Enjoy some of my favorite looks:

We all know that fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand; that’s pretty much a given. However, they’re not the exact same thing but it’s tough to have one without the other. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I absolutely love Lauren Conrad’s Style guide so when I found out that she’s coming out with an appropriately titled book, Beauty, which is an all access “how to” for all things hair and makeup, I was beyond excited and had to share with all you avid bloggers and fashion fanatics. I think it’s a great idea that she’s willing to share the tips and tricks she’s picked up through her journey in the world of entertainment and fashion. In her book, Style, she briefly touched upon advice pertaining to makeup recommendations and tutorials on hairstyles that are basic for all occasions in life. The idea of expanding upon this in an entire manual of its own is something that I look forward to and I’m sure most of you will, too! The book hits stores October 16th.

Lauren Conrad in Paper Crown, Current/Elliot, and LC Lauren Conrad brand

One of my modern-day style icons is without a doubt Lauren Conrad. I think that she is absolutely stunning and has such a classy style. It’s undeniable that she knows her fashion. I don’t know if you remember how I posted about Lauren launching a new collection for Paper Crown back in July. The collection is delectable and I came across this outfit she wore for “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” event in LA. The top and feminine ivory blazer come from Paper Crown, the leather leggings are Current/Elliot, and the heels are actually LC Lauren Conrad brand. That cute little pistachio clutch gives the neutral-colored outfit a great pop. I absolutely love this outfit. It’s great for work, for going out with friends, or for dinner on a Friday night with the boyfriend.

Lately I have been really into the “Chanel look”. You know the image – dainty quilted Chanel bag with single gold chain, dark jeans cuffed at the bottom with nude or black rounded-toe heels, a pretty ruffled top with gray fitted cardigan over it, buttoned up halfway. Or, for even more Coco flair, try a boxy, tweed blazer in blush, gray, cream, or navy and make sure it has either a really fun brooch or prominent gold buttons on it. Oh, and don’t forget about the string of pearls wound around the neck 2-3 times or just a plethora of pearls and pendants all mixed together. Also spring for some very chic, very big, and very dark sunglasses, some soft curls or a chic bun or loose ponytail with side-swept bangs for your hair, complete with a neutral nail.

Celebrity experimentation with different Chanel looks

For a more formal and dressy look, a well-tailored A-line dress that stops above the knee in a subtle shade is going to embody the look of Chanel. It never hurts to throw a skinny black belt around your waist and dress it up even more with some stunning high heels. Celebrities like Lauren Conrad and Rachel Zoe adore this look and they execute it perfectly.

I hope my preceding and also proceeding tips on looking “Chanel” help you a bit in your ultimate quest to be classy and fabulous:

  • The ultimate peacoat, cropped or in a long length
  • Black tights or leggings, particularly in a more sheen material

  • A high-waisted skirt, and tweed never hurt anyone
  • A satin top adorned with some type of bow, perhaps in satin
  • A few polka dots and some ruching never hurt the Chanel image either
  • A white layering jacket
  • Dainty accessories
  • A white button-down shirt underneath a fitted cotton sweater
  • Satin or leather gloves complete with matching hat to battle the frigid New York fall and winter weather
  • A fitted black blazer with dressy shorts and a tucked-in top; you never want hemlines too short
  • Lastly, you need to be well coiffed and have a whole lot of sophistication

It’s okay to jump in with both feet on this one! Yes, it’s official, Lauren Conrad has a new collection and it’s for Paper Crown. The autumn looks are going to be for sale sooner than you know, complete with faux leather leggings that are so aesthetically pleasing you could die and go to heaven twice; also, formally introduce yourself to the layered maxi dresses that aren’t just for summer. She explains that a lot of her pieces are transitional, meaning that you can buy them now and still wear them until the summer fades but you don’t feel like they’re in for an early retirement when the leaves fall because you can pair them with other fall appropriate pieces and still pull off the look. For example, the business-casual shorts can be paired with dark tights and a cardigan for an early fall ensemble. Everything is very classy, very feminine, but nothing that I would consider glamorous or bold enough to make a new fashion statement. Everything is very down-to-earth and versatile and clothes that you want to have in your closet for casual occasions. The collection is very “Whitney Port meets Taylor Swift”. Bottom line, it’s lovely!
