Lauren Conrad's Summer Essentials

Lauren Conrad's Summer Essentials

We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!

Lucky went behind the scenes at Lauren Conrad's cover shoot to find out what keeps the quintessential L.A. girl looking so gloriously sun-kissed and Califorina chic. From her must-have hair-prep product to versatile everyday basics (cutoff denim shorts, pretty white camisole), the former reality star and current Paper Crown designer spilled her secrets. Best of all, other than a splurge-worthy Missoni bikini, none of her picks will bust your budget.

Missoni bikini: "I love the way Missoni bikinis fit. They are definitely a favorite."
For a stripy Missoni suit similar to Lauren's, try this option.
LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's shoes: "I love this platform from my Kohl's line. It is the perfect shoe to wear with a '70s flare jean."
Kohl's carries six summery shoes from Lauren's line.

White Camisole Top: "I love easy silk camis for layering in the summer. One like this can be dressed up or down."
For a breezy white cami like Lauren's, try this.
Cutoff Denim Shorts: "While the fit changes throughout the years, denim cutoffs will always be summer staple for me. This year I prefer a looser fit with a slightly higher waist."
For a similar look, try this pair of comfy cutoffs.
