Calling all Lauren Conrad fanatics: On Thursday, you'll be able to shop the reality star turned lifestyle blogger and fashion designer's sophomore LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection for Kohl's. "I love designing a second collection, because you know so much more; it's great to see what customers responded to, and what they want more of. I learned that my customer really loves a moto jacket, so we brought it back in three colors." Conrad calls her second Runway designs "more elevated, with more luxe fabrics and more fashion-forward silhouettes; and moodier, deeper tones. The first collection was more bright, light, and ethereal." (The Runway line is pricier than her LC Lauren Conrad collection, also at Kohl's.)


Some of us who go way back with LC (via our TV screens, at least) — if you got acquainted during the mid-aughts Laguna Beach or The Hills years that made the SoCal teen famous — will remember there were some timely trends she wore that were enviably fresh AF back in, say, 2005. Conrad indulged us in a trip down memory lane in terms of her small screen fashion choices from back in the day: "There was a lot of camis. So, so many camis, and I wore a lot of shorter-than-capri-length denim — almost more of a pedal-pusher-length," Conrad said. "I'm really into cropped styles now, but I wore a lot of mid-calf denim. I definitely don't need that to make a comeback."

Matching couples' outfits just might be the ticket to a long, happy relationship for some folks. Coordinating with your S.O. became a trend in Seoul a few years ago. May we present the latest example of dressing harmoniously: Anthony Gargiula is a 17-year-old with some of the cutest grandparents around. He tweeted a photo of four of the couple's coordinated outfits; married for 52 years, the duo matches their clothing every single day, as The Cut pointed out.

A week later, Gargiula tweeted a screenshot of himself FaceTime-ing with Grandma and Grandpa as he told them that they'd become sort of internet-famous. "So I don't really know how to tell you this, but you've gone viral," he captioned the cute shot, in which you can see a bit of his grandparents' matching red looks (down to his grandmother's earrings).
