The Best of the 2016 LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection

Like most women my age, I have a huge girl crush on Lauren Conrad. She’s an exceptional role model for young girls, and let’s face it – the girl knows how to dress. For the second year in a row, she released a special edition collection with Kohl’s in conjunction with the beginning of New York Fashion Week. I’ve been looking forward to the release of this collection because the clothing and accessories are made with higher-quality fabrics and materials than what you’re used to finding at Kohl’s (even in LC’s normal clothing line). Everything looks and feels more luxe and high end. I spent some time (okay, a lot of time) browsing all the pieces, so here’s what I deem the best of the 2016 LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection!

The Best of the 2016 LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection

tops | lace cami, bell-sleeve chiffon blouse, faux suede jacket, deep v-neck sweater
dresses & bottoms | wide-leg cropped pants, maxi dress, long-sleeve floral dress, lace tulle dress
accessories | necklace, earrings, hair clip, block heel, lace-up heel, saddle purse

It goes without saying that I can’t wait to shop this collection. If you remember last year’s collection, the colors were more muted and neutral and very nature-inspired. I think that this year’s collection is far superior – I’m digging the darker, moodier feminine vibe. It is perfect for the upcoming fall season!

While I’m a fan of several of the clothing pieces – especially this sweater, this camisole (it will go with everything), and this dress – I was most surprised by the selection of accessories. A genuine leather saddle bag from Kohl’s that comes in three colors? Get out of town! You also never can go wrong with delicate rose quartz jewelry – these earrings and necklace will be worn on repeat no matter the season.

Only some items from the collection currently are available in-store, but you can shop the entire collection online. Plus, everything is 25% off, and if you’re a Kohl’s shopper than you already know that you can use additional coupons toward your purchase. A New York Fashion Week collection from our favorite California girl at affordable prices without the sacrifice of quality? You can count me in!
