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!

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!!

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.

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…
