Lauren has fun dressing Los Angeles’ A-listers, but what she really loves is helping everyday people find their own fashion mojo. “My goal as Westfield’s LA stylist is to teach women how to be influenced by LA’s hottest celebrities without going ‘all Hollywood’. It’s about making those A-list looks work for you." Here she shares her tips on what to keep, lose and buy for the new season ahead.
Deciding what to keep, what to lose, and what to buy each season isn’t an easy task for me. OK, the keeping and buying is extremely easy, it’s the losing part that’s tough. One might call me a fashion hoarder but I chose to call myself a fashion collector. Of course, even the most fashionable collector needs to purge every now and again — with that being said, here is my keep, lose, and buy list for the season.

- Keep — Gold jewellery. Whether it’s a sentimental piece of vintage jewellery or simply inexpensive costume pieces, making a statement with gold accessories is an instant wardrobe upgrade. In fact, I consider it one of the best ways to make something old new again. And remember for this season, the bolder the better.
- Lose — Peace out to the 70s, hippie vibe. That aspect of retro fashion is taking a backseat so the 70’s disco era inspired fashions can shine. Break out the bell-bottoms and sequins!
- Buy — An amazing shift dress. The shift dress definitely falls under the “classic” category but it just so happens that it nails the mod trend that is so hot right now. Finding a shift dress that also incorporates blocks of colour or a bold geometric pattern will have you looking fashion forward in an instant.
