After not much persuasion at all from my flatmate, I picked up Lauren Conrad’s debut coffee table book Style at the weekend.
I’m not much of a coffee table or non-fiction girl, but I’m a huge fan of LC and I couldn’t resist picking this up. Lauren Conrad has also authored a series of fiction novels that are loosely based on her time on The Hills.
Personally, I couldn’t think of many people more qualified to write about personal style than Lauren. Her personal style is effortlessly chic, consistently tops best-dressed columns and undoubtedly created the ‘LA chic’ style niche. Style is written all from the unique point-of-view of being on TV and uncovering her style by making very public mistakes.
The book itself is beautifully made in a hardback perfect bound style. The paper is glossy and lends itself well to the content of the book; logically divided and stunningly presented with clean, sans serif typography. Not only does Lauren share her tips on what to wear and how to wear it, she divulges hair and makeup tips. I wouldn’t be surprised if she releases a beauty edition soon!
Elsewhere in Style, Lauren Conrad shares her top tips on organising your wardrobe, creating and using a capsule wardrobe, how to effectively shop for clothes online, and how to get the most from vintage shopping. Unfortunately, about 50% of the book is common sense-led or were tips I’d already heard of. Granted I’m a fashion student, but this is definitely something to note if you’re seeking genuine style advice.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed flicking through this book. I’d absolutely recommend it to any fellow loyal Lauren Conrad or The Hills fans as it packed with breadcrumbs about the incredibly popular show. The photos are beautiful and there are a few genuinely useful tips and tricks inside.
