Lauren Conrad has proven herself an invaluable source of style inspiration over the years. She knows what works for her and always looks comfortable and confident in what she's wearing. And isn't that the ultimate sartorial goal?
Conrad's most recent musings are especially timely. In celebration of her latest LC Lauren Conrad Collection for Kohl’s, Conrad shared with PeopleStyle some of her thoughts about fall trends, and how to approach trends in general. This fall, Conrad advises investing in velvet, which is arguably the biggest trend of the season. She says about the fabric, "I love that special luxe feel. It’s also comfortable.” Fittingly, her fall collection includes a velvet blazer, babydoll dress, vest, and pants.
More generally speaking, when it comes to trends, Conrad lives by two rules in particular, the first one being to not wear something just because it's trendy. She cites two major trends in particular as examples, saying "I still stand strong on the Birkenstock. I just couldn’t do it. I thought some people looked really cute in them. I looked like a fool. And I keep seeing girls in chokers and I’m like, 'Oh god.'" She also advises to not be afraid to retire pieces that you wore in the past, i.e. the headscarves that she was loyal to during her days on The Hills.
