Lauren Conrad has shared how to style a monochrome look for a first date.

The reality TV star-turned-designer believes a monochrome look is a foolproof option for an uncertain scenario.

Lauren's tried and tested colour combination has always worked well for her.

"When I was single I would always wear black and white on a first date because I didn't ever want to ask where we were going. A black and white outfit can read casual or chic if it's accessorised cool," Lauren told OK! USA. "The other day my boyfriend was like, 'You wore black and white on like, our first eight dates.' You could do a silk white button-down for summer, or a little sleeveless one with a cute black short or skirt, or even a black skinny and a heel with a wrist full of bracelets. I think it's easy, but you can dress it up or down."

Lauren also shared her beauty secrets, which include wearing her favourite Chanel Chance perfume at all times. The style icon has also added a new product to her beauty regime that helps dehydrated skin.

"I recently discovered Egyptian Magic and I'm in love," she gushed. "It's like a balm, but the first ingredient is olive oil, and there's honey in it and other natural ingredients. It's odd because you would never think to put oil on your skin, but this has been kind of a godsend, especially with all the travelling I do that dries out your skin. I put it on my skin every morning and night and I love it."
