Lauren Conrad boasts 'elevated' looks in second clothing collection

Lauren Conrad is a clothing layer enthusiast.

Lauren Conrad has infused her second clothing collection with far more elegant touches than her first.

The reality television star-turned-fashionista launched her LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection with U.S. department chain Kohl's in 2015, and she reveals her latest apparel is "pretty different" from what was released last year.

"I think what people are really looking for are pieces to wear to a friend's wedding or a special event, or even just elevated pieces they can fit into their everyday wardrobe," she explains to Us Weekly magazine of her inspiration for collection number two. "There are definitely more luxe fabrics and fashion-forward silhouettes throughout.

"It's nice to do something once a year that feels really special. There's a lot of floral throughout the collection, and not just in prints but in the embroidery and beading. We always want to go very feminine because we have so much fun with (those) designs, but we definitely wanted this (collection) to have a more sophisticated feel. The colours are a bit deeper - there are a lot of greys, deep wines and dark greens throughout."

Lauren's new apparel will become available for sale in the fall (16), so in keeping with the season, the former The Hills star made it a point to include several layering garments in the collection.

"I think outfit completers are so important," she notes. "You get so much use out of them as the weather starts to cool down. We did this one jacket that's kind of an oversize blazer. It's very menswear-inspired, but it's still a flattering fit, and I love it because it's much longer than we typically do."
