From her reign on The Hills to her emergence as a fashion designer, Lauren Conrad has captured our attention with her polished street style. Now at the helm of her own retail empire, her effortlessly sophisticated fashion sense continues to inspire. While having incredible hair and shelves of Chanel purses certainly doesn't hurt, you don't need to spend big bucks to get her look. Revamp your closet with five of the quintessential California girl's easy-to-wear staples.

1. Leather Leggings

Although Lauren used to go virtually everywhere in skinny jeans, she's now rarely spotted without her favorite faux leather leggings. Whether she's going to a concert or hitting the club, Lauren uses the pants to add a subtle-sexiness to a basic top.

2. Dress Shorts

Another of Lauren's wardrobe staples are shorts. Although the look isn't the most obvious choice for someone who has called her legs short in the past, she fakes supermodel-like proportions with a pair of sky-scraping heels. To keep her look classy (yes, you can wear leather short shorts and still be classy), she evens things out by staying covered up on top.

3. Boyfriend Blazers

To add structure and sophistication to even the most relaxed outfit, Lauren throws on one of her many boyfriend blazers. Paired with flirty separates, the look reads modern girl on-the go, not stuffy businesswoman. Ladies, take note. You should have at least one well-tailored blazer in your closet.

4. Neutral Knits

Not every celebrity treats the airport like their own personal catwalk (phew!). When Lauren makes her way through LAX, you can count on her to look both relaxed and pulled together. Her foolproof travel uniform consists of a cozy neutral sweater and black leggings–just as comfortable as a sweatsuit, but infinitely more attractive.

5. Something Sequined

Sure, LC likes comfortable threads, but when she's ready to shine she reaches for the sequins, regardless of the season. You can follow her lead by layering a glitzy cardigan over a slip dress, or by choosing a flirty mini dress covered in the sparkly stuff.
