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.

Conrad unveils swimwear line at Kohl’s

Lauren Conrad’s Kohl’s line is about to get a little bigger.

According to PopSugar, the multi-hyphenate is launching her first-ever “Beach Collection” under her LC Lauren Conrad line, which is set to include “swimwear (both one-pieces and bikinis meant to be mixed and matched), airy drawstring shorts, off-the-shoulder dresses, and other warm-weather essentials, starting at $34.”

Maxing out at $68, PopSugar says the collection has a resort-like feel with tropical prints, with Conrad adding that she chose “very fun colors, like hunter green and paprika, and then some really pretty peaches-and-cream.”

She Leads, You Follow: Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Red carpets are often rolled out to mark the arrivals of actors, actresses and musicians to an awards ceremony, but on Oct. 17, the red carpet was readied at Will Rogers State Historic Park for the sixth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Los Angeles in Pacific Palisades, California. And of course, this means that the arrivals were filled with fashionable outfits for a day of champagne and polo.

Catching our eye first was a bright blue ensemble courtesy of Nina Dobrev. The actress attended the polo classic in a cerulean blue chiffon dress by Badgley Mischka, which she paired with white strappy sandals and a grey oversized clutch, says InStyle

Following Dobrev was Lauren Conrad, who graced the red carpet in a cheery yellow number with a plunging v-neckline. She kept her look simple and to the point, with natural makeup and no jewelry.

Although Dobrev and Conrad are dressed for a red carpet event, there are several things about their looks that we can apply to our everyday dressing:

  1. Don’t be afraid of color – Both Dobrev and Conrad opted for bright colors, immediately attracting our attention. But what is equally eye-catching is how they wore these bright colors: they made the color of their dresses the focal point of their outfits, while keeping their accessories, their makeup and their hair as simple as possible. Dobrev paired her look with a neutral clutch and white heels, allowing for the color to be the star of the outfit while her accessories played a supporting role. Conrad decided to go sans accessories, even keeping her hair and makeup soft and subtle. If you are afraid to try out a bold hue, take their lead by wearing your favorite bright color with more subdued accessories to make the color your outfit’s focal point; any busier or loud accessories would create conflicting focal points and end up drawing attention away from the color itself.
  2. You don’t have to ‘bare’ it all – One common thread (get it?) in both of these outfits is that they are sexy without being overtly so; Dobrev’s frock features tiny cutouts at the waist, while Conrad’s dress has a prominent plunging neckline and even a slit in the skirt. But neither of these dresses  are very revealing; this goes to show that you don’t have to ‘bare’ it all to be sexy. Sometimes, just showing little peeks can be subtly sexy, if not more sexy than showing it all.

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.

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.

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.
