We have a new writer on staff — and she comes with a pretty fabulous pedigree. Lauren Conrad is joining the PEOPLE StyleWatch magazine team, starting with our March issue, dishing out style advice and sharing her fashion and beauty must-haves. In her inaugural column, Conrad answers commonly asked questions (like how to get a great wardrobe on a budget) and tells us what’s on her spring shopping list (hint: there are blazers, button-downs and platforms involved). Thanks to her successful beauty blog and growing lifestyle site, the designer is definitely gaining traction as a style authority — and we’re excited to have her on board! Check out Conrad’s first column in the March issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch magazine and learn more of her style secrets here.
