Get The Look: Lauren Conrad

blog022509

It looks like one of holiday’s favorite trends has decided to stick around for spring. A look usually favored by  lumber jacks, Lauren Conrad has pulled of the plaid shirt trend with great success. By pairing the shirt with skinny jeans, heals and a bright purse, LC takes the look from masculine to chic. Great for stylishly laid-back day wear, or dramatic when paired with skinny jeans and heels for a night out, this trend looks like it’s here to stay. Arent you glad that plaid is back?

What could be better than Primo Beer’s  big retrun to the Mainland?  How about some wicked waisted style to help celebrate? Teaming up with Billabong, Hawaii’s iconic beer has just brewed a tasty batch of the sickest, retro revival boardshorts. Ho bra’, serve it up da kine style and add it to your mix plate grind. Okole Maluna (cheers)!

Spring 2009′s Brightest Trends

Not every trend is created equal. Some fade with the seasons, and some have us wondering “what was I thinking?!” Others, regardless of their popularity, if containing the right amount of edge and figure-friendly lines, can last over the years.  We scavenged through this coming spring’s biggest trends and hand picked the best of the best. They’re the trends that almost anyone can rock; have distinct creative flair mixed with classic elements; and won’t have you looking back regretfully years later!

SUN DANCE PRINTS

Feathers, fringe, and the untamed west: the staples of summer music festival kits, southwestern fairs, and Mojave nights combine to create a free-spirited, throwback look that will flood the scene this spring.
