Lucky went behind the scenes at Lauren Conrad's cover shoot to find out what keeps the quintessential L.A. girl looking so gloriously sun-kissed and Califorina chic. From her must-have hair-prep product to versatile everyday basics (cutoff denim shorts, pretty white camisole), the former reality star and current Paper Crown designer spilled her secrets. Best of all, other than a splurge-worthy Missoni bikini, none of her picks will bust your budget.

For a stripy Missoni suit similar to Lauren's, try this option.
LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's shoes: "I love this platform from my Kohl's line. It is the perfect shoe to wear with a '70s flare jean."
Kohl's carries six summery shoes from Lauren's line.
White Camisole Top: "I love easy silk camis for layering in the summer. One like this can be dressed up or down." For a breezy white cami like Lauren's, try this.
