Lauren Conrad showed her latest runway collection with Kohl's this week at New York Fashion Week, which got me looking back at some of the stylista's best looks - like this chic ensemble she wore last spring on 'Good Day New York' to talk about her book 'Celebrate.'

Throwback Thursday: Lauren Conrad's Floral Blouse and Liquid Leggings Look for Less

Nothing could be more fitting for this week's Throwback Thursday Look for Less than Lauren Conrad's floral look from 2011. Perfect for this spring, Lauren paired a printed blouse with a pair of liquid leggings, camel booties and handbag, and a pearl choker necklace. I love all of the style influences that I am seeing in this one look. It's feminine and playful because of the florals and pearls, edgy from the addition of leather and a bit bohemian thanks to the use of cognac in her shoes and bag. I never would have styled these items together, but leave it to Lauren to show us that opposite styles attract! Read on to see my finds and get her look for less...

You're Going to Want to Steal Lauren Conrad's 'Celebrate' Book Launch Outfit

Lauren Conrad's new book! her outfit's from Kohl's under $50
Lauren Conrad wore a dress and heels from her Kohl's collection to fête the launch of her new book, Celebrate (out today!), a lovely fact I picked up while watching Style Code Live. It's my new nightly obsession/guilty pleasure if the kids are both in bed, and it's only 30 minutes long so I can squeeze it in while doing other things. But back to Lauren: She was on the show to talk about her latest book that's about all-things-party and revealed that she wore this dress and these heels, as seen on her Instagram feed. I think she looks amazing - the dress is so girly and chic, not to mention figure flattering with its fit and flare silhouette. Lauren's exact dress is available in sizes 0-18 for just $48 while the heels are available in four colors for just $40! See? Watching TV isn't just fun and games, it's research.

Throwback Thursday: Lauren Conrad's Leopard Blouse and Black Skinny Jeans Look for Less

Lauren Conrad's leopard blouse and black skinny jeans look for less
This casual-chic look seen on Lauren Conrad is actually from the fall of 2012, but we think it looks just as fresh today as it did back then. After all, leopard print never really goes out of style, nor do all-black extras. Here, the fashion designer/author/entrepreneur tucks her blouse to show off her waist, adds cute ballet flats, and a timeless quilted Chanel purse to complete the look. Get it on a budget with our affordable finds that are so 2015...
