LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Spring 2012 Lookbook

The LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's lookbook just came out, and if this doesn't put you in a good mood, I don't know what will! This girl's on roll, with her growing lifestyle site, beauty blog and People StyleWatch gig. Her spring collection is feminine, colorful and California-cool, which is exactly what we've come to expect. There are spring dresses, skinny jeans, and breezy blouses in a mix of floral prints and light brights like coral, dusty rose and sky blue. A perfect little black dress, faux-leather jacket and tailored blazer and great wardrobe staples while a yellow and white colorblock top, peplum vest and high-low skirt will let you check off all the latest trends without spending too much. Some of the set styling is undeniably saccharine (crochet in an English garden; misting orchids in the greenhouse; serving pink lemonade on the veranda) but you know you're going to Pin-it anyways! I'm taking some beauty notes, too, that fishtail braid and those bright red nails are calling my name.

WOW there's some really cute stuff here! Especially the color block dress and first blouse with the sheer panels. I see a Kohls trip in my future!

There's definitely alot of great pieces. I'm surprised.

Butterfly prints are tricky since they tend to look very childish, but I actually like the butterfly print dress.

Love the coral skirt & the blush moto jacket as well.

I'm loving the first colorblock dress, the blush moto cropped jacket, and those brown platform sandals. :-P

This looks like her best lookbook yet! Loving the cold shoulder tops, skinny jeans (esp. the colored ones), peplum vest, butterfly dress, that ponte dress with the bow... MUST BUY!

I've never really been a fan of LC - but I'm in love with almost all of these pieces!

Isn't that pink dress at the top blatantly a rip-off of this Topshop dress? Unless they're both knock-offs of another designer, which is possible too!;=&catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=2521743&langId;=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208634&parent_categoryId=208580&pageSize=200

Huh, very interesting! I'll have to review the spring runways to see where that idea originated. Thanks for sharing.

Loving so many pieces from this collection!

#11 Stacey (Homepage) on 2012-02-29 18:05 (Reply)
I really like the patterns and styling of her line. I wish the dresses had a slightly longer hem line though because they are a bit short for work!
#12 Erin A on 2012-02-29 18:12 (Reply)
Sixty bucks for Kohls jeans. No.
#13 Lisa on 2012-02-29 18:39 (Reply)
The clothes are all very cute, but what I really want is her perfect hair!
#14 MizzJ (Homepage) on 2012-02-29 23:45 (Reply)
In agreement with her hair. The black dress is adorable.
#15 Barbara (Homepage) on 2012-03-01 04:54 (Reply)
There are definitely some cute pieces in here, but I honestly feel like all her collections look the same. It's always the same cut of dresses, tops and blazers. The nice thing is that it's very true to her personality and I really appreciate that.
#16 Jessica (Homepage) on 2012-03-01 10:19 (Reply)
I like this dress but I would love it if it was longer.
#17 Tanya (Homepage) on 2012-03-01 11:09 (Reply)
I haven't been to Kohl's in forever, but I love this collection. I hope it doesn't all sell out.

I'm not getting any details when I mouse over the images...What brand are the salmon-colored, cropped jeans LC is wearing with the flowy white top? I need those jeans!
