Conrad to add plus sizes to Kohl’s line

Lauren Conrad’s Kohl’s line is slowly becoming more inclusive, first with maternity clothing and now with plus sizes.

According to WWD, Conrad’s LC Lauren Conrad brand is expanding to include plus-size offerings, with her entire limited-edition runway capsule collection debuting at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 6. Now featuring sizes 0X to 3X, Glamour reports the brand launched its new plus styles in a partnership with blogger Loey Lane, who starred in a photoshoot to show off some of the new looks from the runway collection.

Lane also shared her frustrations with plus clothing, says WWD, writing, “Can’t I just wear whatever I want? Why wouldn’t anyone just wear what makes them comfortable and happy and not think about how others feel about the garments they’re putting on their own bodies?”

Ready for Conrad’s latest collection? Glamour says the new styles will include “holiday-ready velvet, metallics, and faux fur,” and will retail between $12 and $154.

Candie’s gets a creative director

An accessible fashion and accessory line for juniors, Candie’s has been a staple at Kohl’s department stores since 2005. But for the first time ever, the brand is getting a creative director to aid in their upcoming ad campaigns.

According to InStyle, Candie’s has enlisted the help of Sarah Hyland to take on the first position of its kind within the company. The first item on the job description for the 25-year-old Modern Family actress will be to take a starring role in the brand’s fall 2016 and spring 2017 campaigns.

But her duties won’t end there. Hyland will not only offer her style expertise and provide an overall creative vision for the brand, InStyle says she will also style the fall back-to-school campaign.

While InStyle notes that previous campaigns from Candie’s have included the likes of Britney Spears, Vanessa Hudgens and Fifth Harmony, Hyland has already expressed her excitement to not only follow suit in becoming a “Candie’s girl,” but also in assuming the role of the brand’s first creative director.

“I grew up looking at Candie’s ads and hearing my friends’ experiences as Candie’s girls, Hyland said in a statement, “but the added influence of being named the first Creative Director is really exciting for me. I love fashion, it’s part of who I am.”

Eager to start her new position, Hyland said, “I love that I get to have influence on this line because not only are the clothes really fashion-forward, but they are offered at an affordable price-point, which means fans of mine can afford what we’re selling.”

Although Fashion Week wrapped up in New York City last week, the parade of this year’s newest fashions is continuing across the pond in London, and the shows are shaping up to be just as much about as those in attendance as the styles making their way down the runway.

According to InStyleone such fashionable guest was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who attended the Burberry fall/winter 2016 show on Feb. 22. Dressed in head-to-toe Burberry, the model wore a military-inspired coat over a pintuck blouse, which she paired with wide-legged trousers. She completed her look with a cool chain-link bag.

Huntington-Whiteley’s military-inspired look may seem fairly simple with its monochromatic color scheme, but don’t let that fool you. With military-style coats starting from the new collection starting at a cool $2,595, this entire Burberry look is sure to cost you a pretty penny. Although the price might be high, don’t give up hope yet — we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her entire look for under $200. Read on for the results!

Finding a military-inspired coat to rival Huntington-Whiteley’s Burberry number was no easy task, but the Military Faux Wool Coat in navy from Missguided offers a good alternative at a fraction of the price. Done in a darker navy, this coat features a similar double-breasted button style in a shorter length. Available for $85, this coat will form the basis of our look for less.

These neutral trousers will easily become a wardrobe staple, finding their way into a number of going-out and work outfits alike.

She Leads, You Follow: Lauren Conrad

New York Fashion Week is known as a showcase of high fashion designs courtesy of the world’s top designers. And while these designers have garnered much attention for their couture looks, there are other, more accessible designers who have attracted just as much, if not more, attention.

Enter Lauren Conrad, who participated in Fashion Week for the first time ever with her LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection. All of the designs she debuted at her runway show are available at Kohl’s, making her line one of the most accessible and affordable collection to hit the runway this season.

Looking as stylish as ever, Conrad attended her show in an ensemble of her own designs, wearing a scalloped lace crop top paired with high-waisted wide leg trousers.

Conrad’s effortless-chic look speaks to the overall quality and aesthetic of her Kohl’s collection, making us want to drop everything and hit up our nearest Kohl’s to take her look for ourselves! And if this look makes you want to do the same, we’ve hunted down the exact pieces Conrad is wearing so you can take her exact New York Fashion Week look for your own.

Looking lovely in lace, Conrad’s Fashion Week look begins with her LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection Scallop Lace Crop Top in natural. This top features a delicate, intricate lace with a scalloped detail not only on the sleeves, but also on the hemline. The shirt’s hemline hits right at the natural waist, allowing the straight-cut top to still define your waist and create shape. For only $45, you can get Conrad’s Fashion Week look on sale from its $60 regular price.

The LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection High Waist Wide-Leg Pants complete the look, adding a modern flare that contrasts the classic elegance of the lace. The waist of these pants meet the hemline of the crop top, further defining your waist, while the legs of the pants fall straight down from the widest part of the hip; these two features combine to create the illusion of a long, tall, lean silhouette. These pants complete her look for a sale price of only $51.

Take Her Look [For Less]

The Billboard and Jimmy Choo “Men of Style” party honors the most fashionable, trendsetting men in the music industry, celebrating the style of musicians including Nick Jonas, Mark Ronson and Leon Bridges. But the party held in Los Angeles on August 28 also featured some very fashionable ladies.

One of those fashionable ladies in attendance was Rashida Jones, who rocked printed shorts with a black button-down shirt and a black cardigan. Jones completed her look with black closed-toe ankle strap pumps and a simple clutch.

Jones’ effortless-chic look may have rivaled some of the male honorees in attendance, but her look comes at a hefty price. Her shoes alone, the Trinity 100 by Jimmy Choo, cost a lofty $895. But if you love Jones’ “Men of Style” ensemble, we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her entire look for less. Read on for the results!

The first items on our shopping list were a black button-down shirt and black cardigan to imitate Jones’ set. We easily found the perfect options to recreate her look in the form of the Chaps No Iron Shirt from Kohl’s and the Classic V-Neck Cardigan from Forever 21. These classic pieces will be an asset to your wardrobe far beyond this look-alike ensemble, as they will easily pair with already-existing pieces in your wardrobe. And for only $39.99 and $8.90 respectively, these essentials won’t make a dent in your shopping budget.

The start of summer often comes with an all-new TV lineup, and last night, TLC debuted its “TLC Summer Friday” shows. The first of the three shows in the lineup was one of THL’s favorites, Stacy London’s “Love, Lust, or Run.”

While it is fun to watch a ‘style caterpillar’ turn into a chic, fashionable butterfly, what is perhaps the best part about the show is London’s killer style; it’s hard not to drool over her clothing, her accessories and especially her shoes! “Love, Lust, or Run,” now in its second season, has added a new feature to their website in which viewers can find the exact pieces that both London and her contributors wear on the show. This feature, which works with Stylinity, a quasi-social networking site finds the exact articles of clothing and accessories worn in photos, allowing viewers to shop the look instantaneously — a perfect tool when you want to shop one of London’s to-die-for ensembles!

The new Stylinity feature helped us find the beautiful lace pumps London wore last night, which we had our eyes on from the first five minutes of the show! London was wearing gorgeous Manolo Blahnik BB Lace and Satin Pumps, available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $695.

Stacy, we love your Manolos, but $695 isn’t in the budget for us! But, we found similar pumps by ShoeMint that will allow us and all of your other faithful followers to mimic your style! The ShoeMint Classic Women’s Lace Dress High Heel offers a very similar look to London’s Manolos, imitating their pointy-toe style as well as their see-through lace. However, these pumps are available at Kohls.com for only $54.99!
