When Lauren Conrad needs a wardrobe update, she looks no further than her own collection for Kohl’s. “I think if you’re not willing to wear your own clothes, you’re doing something wrong. This line was meant to be about my style and pieces I want to walk into a store and want to buy. If you’re not wearing your own line, you’re taking all the fun out of it,” the former reality star tells Known for her flirty frocks and California cool girl style, Lauren says her staple piece is the blazer. “We have one in every collection, and we usually update it and tweak it a little bit. In this specific collection, I also really love the biker jacket we did.” And come spring, Lauren says she’ll be pairing her sharp toppers with lots of watercolor prints: “I think they’re very romantic and kind of timeless. I almost did too much of it with this collection. When we were shopping for prints with Kohl’s, everything I picked was watercolor and floral. They’re very in because of the whole Alice in Wonderland thing.” However one fashion fad, the style author won’t be trying this season is hot pants. “You can’t wear them to the club, because you’re going to look like one of the dancers, but they could look cute on the beach!” says Lauren.

NO way! So tired of all these wanna-be celeb fashionistas! Why would i invest my $$ in people who have had no real experience in fashion! Kors yes~, Wang yes, Stefani-yes!

LC collection is great- bought some peices and will continue to buy! Keep’um comming! Don’t listen to this haters- they are jealous that’s obvious…

Steph on

I love her! If I like it, I’ll wear it.

Zoey on

Never watched her shows but think she is SO pretty! Love her stuff! So sad that I live in a place where I can’t wear all her cute dresses!

Why is Stefani any more trustworthy when it comes to fashion? LC went to school at FIDM, which I think makes her more qualified than Stefani. Besides, Stefani’s line is always so tacky. LC’s is always beautiful and effortless. I LOVE going to Kohls and buying pieces from her line.

How is she a “wanna-be celeb fashionista”? Unlike most celebs who start their own fashion line she actually went to college for fashion design so she is just doing what she set out to do from the begging, which was not to be a celebrity but to be a fashion designer. Her being a celebrity just got her to her dreams a lot quicker. I love her style and her so I will most definitely be checking her line out!!

KC on

She looks like she needs to pee in that picture.
Who is she again?

FYI Nancy- LC does have experience in fashion. Not only did she go to school for it, but she also worked at Teen Vouge and has worked on multiple runway shows.

Pineapple on

No No No. She is a narcissist and she doesnt even design her own stuff. Total sell out. You and I could do the same thing if we had MTV backing us up on a show about nothing- our own lives! Her clothes suck and she is totally losing her 15 minutes…

Dawn on

Love her!…and of course…she gets to design exactly what she wants to wear.

Veronique on

I agree with Nancy. Most anyone with good taste and the resources can put out a line of clothing. LC is only able to achieve this because she is a reality star. (which makes me sick)
REAL designers know how to tailor to the body and have had extensive training. I would never waste my money on something I could sew myself.

What happened to the good old days where you where famous for an actual reason (or actual talent)

Kylie on

The title is misleading, it makes LC sound arrogant. Keep at it LC, you’re not going to make your millions as an actor, so it should be as a designer…. or inheritance.

Pam on

Who is she?

sarah on

“Here” more?

Nadia on

Love her collection. I bought the biker jacket and going back for more this friday

Kristen on

Well, Lauren Conrad is a very normal girl who wears very normal stuff. She designs clothes that everyday people can wear. Most people can’t go to italy and buy thousands of dollars of those strange looking runway clothes and wear them in everyday life. I think she is beautiful and her clothes are beautiful and I am going to try on some of her stuff this weekend.

Lisa on

Love her! She was the only reason I watched the Hills – once she left, I never tuned in again. She is the classiest of the “reality” stars – and just beautiful!

stephanie_C on

I love LC and cant wait to get in Khols and buy a few pieces. I am a black girl from the ATL and I love the Cali style of LC’s line. Just recently came from a vacay in LA (W. Hollywood) and her looks are dead on for WEST COAST COOL styling!

Big up-LC!!! Wish she was still on The Hills!!

F*** the Haters!!!

Head Diva In Charge on

She has a point. So many celebs create and design clothing but wouldn’t be caught in them. Good for Lauren.

Maria on

Nancy, Michael Kors and Gwen Stefani didn’t just wake up and have experience and years of design and production experience. I’m sure when you got your first job, you knew everything so you probably don’t understand.

I have actually purchased Lauren’s line and find it to be of good quality as well as cute fun items. Maybe some of you are too old for her collection to find it great???
