"I love this look because it is chic but still youthful. Leather brings a cool element to any look. I like this camel blazer as a daytime layering piece."
Ryder Blazer, $276; Hudson Short, $184
LOOK 2 Incorporate Lightweight Pieces
"Day or night I love incorporating lightweight tops into my outfits. We took a subtle approach to color blocking on this top. The skirt is a pretty silhouette and great for all body types. It accentuates the waist and can be worn with bare legs or paired with cute tights in the fall."
Piper Top, $188; Sophie Skirt, $188.LOOK 3 Give Your Look Some Romance
"I am in love with this dress. The way it moves is so beautiful. I have worn it as-is, and also belted the top layer with a silk tie to give it a little shape. The full tiers give this dress such a romantic look."

Ryder Blazer, $276; Olivia Cami, $59; Ascher Short, $225.LOOK 6 Change Up Your Hemline
"I wanted to design a dress that was both sophisticated and sexy. I balanced out the low neckline with a longer hemline. It fits like a dream."

Clementine Gown, $398.LOOK 9 Dress Your Leggings Up or Down
"The faux leather legging is by far one of my favorite pieces from fall. They are a little edgy but still so chic. I wear them with day or night. They are so easy to dress up or down. The blazer is another one of my favorites. I really focused on the fit. I wanted it to have a straighter fit, but not too boxy."

LOOK 10 Update Your Work Look
"I wanted to design a chic pant that was appropriate for the workplace, but kept it feeling new through the lower rise and wide cuff.

Camilla Sweater, $225; Katherine Pant, $198.

Lauren landed at LAX last night in skinny jeans and sandals. She's back home in California after making a quick trip to NYC this week to shoot the cover images for The Fame Game, her upcoming trilogy of novels!
Lauren Conrad attended Rebecca Minkoff’s Summer Cocktail event at Confederacy in LA last night wearing a pretty two-tone dress from the designer’s Spring collection.
She’s seen here modeling a Rebecca Minkoff bag from the event, but she arrived carrying a mustard crocodile print shoulder bag.
I fell in love with her trademark beachy waves.
Lauren was incredibly sweet and spoke to me about fashion, hair and her favourite summer trend.
On what she loves about Rebecca Minkoff: “She’s lady-like but with a hip factor, her style is very her.”
On trends she is currently excited about: “Seventies summer romance… sheer fabrics, long dresses, very romantic.”
On her favourite hair and make-up trends: “I just stopped by my hair stylist before coming here because I’d had tie-dye hair for about a week but since I was coming to a nice event, I thought I should tone it down, so there are tiny blue streaks in it right now. I was wondering if anyone would notice! I painted my nails tonight in the ombré style (dark to light shades of blue) and I know the trend of painting the ring finger a different colour to the rest of your nails. I like to carry nail polish strips when I travel in case they get chipped and then they’re so easy to repair. I feel like with nails, anything goes!”
If you haven’t done so already, check out Lauren Conrad’s site, The Beauty Department for more of her hair and make-up tips.
