While other starlets struggle to define their style, Lauren Conrad has sure-footedly navigated the Hollywood style scene with expert grace. She's kept her look consistent, but undeniably stylish over the years with nary a hair or hem out of place.
We're gals who perpetually seem to have nothing to wear, no matter how often we shop. So naturally, when we chatted with Lauren we had to know what we were doing wrong. She let us in on the five things every girl should own. Here's what she said:
1. A little black dress
It should be nice enough that you can wear it out in the evening, but also something you can dress down. A piece like that, depending on how you accessorize, can be very wearable. If you get the right style should remain timeless.
2. A good pair of pumps
That's an investment piece. With good shoes, you can always get them resoled. A good pair of black pumps you can wear with anything.
3. A good pair of jeans
Style depending on your body type and what kind of denim you like.
4. A blazer
It can be dressed up or down and it's a nice thing to have.
5. A good white shirt
I would say a button down but it can depend. It could be a silk blouse or a classic button down, but it depends because everyone is different.
Well, that's a solid wardrobe right there. What are your style essentials?
