Lauren Conrad Launches Holiday Gift Line for Kohl’s Filled with ‘Charming and Sweet’ Things

Lauren Conrad’s line for Kohl’s just got bigger!

The star has consistently been expanding her collection since its launch in 2009, introducing everything from maternity clothing to swimwear. Now, just in time for the holiday season, the hostess and designer extraordinaire is taking on holiday entertaining by releasing a new line of ornaments, gifts, home items and more for her Kohl’s line.

“I wanted everything to feel charming and sweet,” Conrad told PEOPLE during an interview last week. Here, Conrad takes us through some of her fail-safe gifting ideas for the holiday season. 

WHIMSICAL ORNAMENTS 

Conrad is a big fan of these seasonal collectibles! “I actually have a giant collection of them that takes over half of our garage and my husband hates it,” says Conrad. “I love to collect vintage ornaments. I usually find most of them at flea markets or I hunt for them sometimes online. I wanted to create a big variety of them so you could put together a big, eclectic Christmas tree. My favorites are the little felted characters with feathers on them and they have crowns and glitter. We did a swan, a unicorn, a lion and more and I just think they’re the cutest things ever.”

Extra Holiday Gifting Tip: “I actually like topping gifts with ornaments,” says Conrad. “I think it’s fun, like a bonus gift. I tie it in the bow. People take so much thought into their gift-wrapping these days, so they’ll work out perfectly.”

EASY HOSTESS GIFTS

Conrad says the ultimate hostess gift depends on the person, but you can’t go wrong with something for their home. “Coasters or wine charms or a wine opener, something like that is always nice because it’s sweet and thoughtful and goes along with the hostessing theme,” she says. 

Buy It: Wine charms, bottle opener, bottle stoppers, coaster sets, $16 to $36; kohls.com 

FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING/WANTS NOTHING 

Conrad knows this can be tricky. “I think you get them something they’re not going to buy themselves, whether it’s bath salts or we do these really cute slipper sets,” she suggests. “We did these little slipper sets that come with slippers and a little eye mask, and they’re really cute. I actually never bought myself slippers until a few months ago when I was going into the hospital to have my son . And on the list, it was like bring slippers. And I haven’t bought slippers in years. And I’ve been wearing them ever since — because slippers are awesome, I forgot!”

And while her lineup will satisfy a lot of people on her holiday gift list, she still has two important people to shop for: Her husband and her son. When it comes to William, she says, “the things he wants usually are expensive. It’s usually a watch or a guitar, so I always really struggle. And he’s so good at getting me gifts. He sets a high bar!” 

Meanwhile, when it comes to son Liam, 5 months, she’s just excited for him to have his first Christmas experience. “I was thinking about that. Like how many gifts do we get him? He can’t even open them yet! I’m sure he’ll get a ton of clothes because tiny clothes are so fun to buy. And his grandparents spoil him. But honestly for him, it’s about the experience. We’re excited for him to have his first little holiday.” 

Right now, Conrad is planning to stay local and spend time with family over the holidays — and, yes, even wear matching pajamas on Christmas morning. “My mother-in-law gets us all matching pajamas for Christmas morning,” she says. “She’s so sweet. She drops them off ahead of time. So we all wear matching pajamas on Christmas!”

Will There Be a Kardashian Christmas Card This Year? Kris Jenner Explains

The Kardashian-Jenner family Christmas card has become the stuff of legends. The first family of reality TV holds nothing back when it comes to crafting the perfect holiday greeting. They’ve done everything from posing in glamorous gowns on the stairs in 2010 to testing out a 3D version in 2011 to a chaotic carnival in 2013. They even shot the next generation in 2015.

But last year, the family opted out of their annual tradition. Sure, timing wasn’t exactly right — it was after Kim Kardashian’s robbery, Khloé Kardashian’s official divorce and more — but fans look forward to the card every year. And lucky for them, it might be set for a triumphant return in 2017.

Kris Jenner hinted that the family is currently figuring out plans for a Christmas card shot. “There’s a different CEO of my family every day,” Jenner told PEOPLE at the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit last week. “This week Kim is CEO because she’s organizing the Christmas-card shoot.”

When pressed for more, Jenner said it’s still in the early stages. “We’re thinking about it,” Jenner said. “ getting a family poll — a family vote.” 

The family has already been spotted getting in the holiday spirit. Kim and Kourtney went shopping together for Christmas trees in October and the whole family was spotted shooting a Christmas special the same month.

So, if the family is voting on the status of the Christmas card, we hope they vote yes! 

Even Kris Jenner Agrees: The Kardashians ‘Are Kind Of Everywhere’

Kris Jenner and her famous family have dominated news cycles (including ours) for over a decade now. And while there are no signs of them slowing down any time soon — Jenner admitted she has no plans to retire in the future and the family recently renewed their Keeping Up with the Kardashians deal for a reported $150 million — she does realize that Kar-Jenner family pop culture oversaturation may become an issue. 

“We are kind of everywhere, so there is a possibility that there is an oversaturation,” the momager, 61, said when asked whether she fears backlash due to the pervasive prevalence of her family while speaking at a panel hosted by Tommy Hilfiger at the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit in N.Y.C. last week. 

But, she added, she thinks that possibility is pretty remote: “So far, we’re 10 years in, and we’re doing okay,” she said.

“I don’t know, maybe I’ll get sick of myself,” she continued. “But I think that if you look at it from the glass half-full, which is the way I choose to go through life, and kind of ignore the haters — there’s a lot of bullying going on out there, and a lot of freedom on the Internet that I certainly wish wasn’t there all the time because you can get the trolls and that whole part of it certainly is annoying — but for the most part, we’re gung-ho everyday and try to make the most of what we have.”

So, what’s the keeping the fans really keeping up? Jenner has her guesses. 

“I think that part of the success of the family in general has been because we had a show, which we started 10 years ago now, and in the very beginning, people became emotionally invested and wrapped up into one or more people in the family,” she said. 

“And we’ve been so real and authentic in what we show on our show,” she explained. “We don’t have scripts. We don’t have things that we come up with because we want to entertain somebody. We are actually doing a reality show about our lives. But I think what’s happened over the course of 10 years is when people watch us and they’ve seen us get married, get divorced, have babies, the kids are growing up on camera. So I think there is a certain familiarity that the kids, each one of them, has people that follow their every move and want to be a part of their lives.” 

Jenner also noted how important the birth and rise of social media has been on her family’s success. “We also have the ability to have a whole personal side on social media that was not even in existence years ago,” she said. 

“I keep track of my kids sometimes on social media,” Jenner joked. “I have to check TMZ every morning to see what’s going on, and then at night, I go to bed with Snapchat. It’s like, ‘What did they do tonight?’”

Maren Morris Talks Wedding Planning, Including How She Wants a Modern Version of Her Mom’s Short Wedding Dress!

Wedding planning is going very well for Maren Morris!

The country singer, 27, got engaged in July, when her musician beau Ryan Hurd, 32, popped the question with a unique uncut diamond ring. And now that’s it’s been a few months, they’re well into planning their spring wedding, from picking out a dress to the guest list to the event itself — and we caught up with the star while discussing her new Wilhelmina Models contract to get even more scoop about her big day.

First, when it comes to the dress, don’t expect anything typical — just like the star herself. “I’m having the dress made,” Morris reveals. “I’m in the midst of getting sketches back for that.” Her inspiration is her mother, Kellie, who wore a short wedding dress when she got married in 1989, Morris explains. 

RELATED: Maren Morris Talks Wedding Plans and Her Unique Engagement Ring!

“She was a badass and had this short wedding dress, so I sent it to this designer that I love,” says Morris. “I was like, ‘If we can do a modern version of my mom’s wedding dress just dreaming something up really cool but still throwback with her vibe, I would love to make that happen.’ So I’m just waiting to get sketches back but I know it’ll be perfect.” 

And now that the dress is almost set, she’s just getting all the other details in place. 

“I feel like we’ve gotten so much done in the last two weeks,” says Morris. “The hardest part is the guest list! But I feel like we have all the cornerstones of the wedding planning out knocked out now — the location, the timeline, the guest list, and we got a deejay. I think the rest of it is just details.” 

Her goal is just to make it the best night of her life. “It’s going to be so fun seeing all the people I don’t get normally throughout the year. It’s going to be a huge celebration of love, and like a family reunion as well.”  

She also wants all of her guests to feel really comfortable. “We just want it to feel like a party,” she says. “We don’t want it to feel stuffy or have this long 18-course dinner. We want it to be like us. There’s definitely going to be margaritas and some Motown music and my dog will be there. It’s going to be a complete reflection of both of our styles and tastes and I’m so excited to share it with everybody.” 

There is something that she’s still working on — décor. “It’s going to feel really green and lush and beautiful and twinkly,” she explains. “But the décor is the fun part, like making it your own. So I’ve had the best time Pinteresting.”

Judith Light Still Has Her Loehmann’s Gold Card and Other Fashion Revelations from the Timeless Star

Judith Light is becoming more and more fun to watch on the red carpet. The iconic and beloved television and stage star, 68, has lived most of her life in the spotlight, from her breakout role in the late ‘70s on One Life to the ‘80s hit Live to Who’s the Boss? to one of today’s smash series, Transparent. And in the past decade, she’s risen as a fashion force, becoming known for her array of chic, tailored suiting, elegant evening separates and stunning long-sleeve gowns. She might not get the attention other, younger stars receive, but she’s right there with them when it comes to owning her style, taking risks and being unapologetic about her choices. 

And the reason is simple: She loves—no, really, really loves—fashion. 

“Fashion has always been very important for me,” Light told PEOPLE during New York Fashion Week, where she was on hand at La Prairie’s celebration of the Art of Caviar exhibition. “Fashion isn’t just about ‘let’s put something on and it’s this particular name designer.’ It’s about what that artist is creating and what you get to share by wearing it.”

RELATED VIDEO: Judith Light Reveals Why Her Long-Distance Marriage Works

Her interest started when she was just a girl growing up in Trenton, New Jersey. “My mother was a womenswear buyer, so when I was growing up, she would always take me shopping,” Light explained. “We would go shopping every single weekend. She taught me how to shop‹—but she really taught me how to bargain shop.”

They used to spend a lot of their time at Loehmann’s, the now out-of-business discount retailer. “When I grew up, I didn’t have a lot of money,” she said. “I still have my gold card from Loehmann’s — I can’t throw it away!”

Now, times are different, of course, and she’s often spotted in designer pieces she picks out with help from her stylist, Jack Yeaton. “I rely on him in terms of every look that I have,” she said. “There’s no question about that.”

One of her go-to designers is Zac Posen. She’s worn his looks everywhere, from a white gown at the 2013 Tony Awards to front row at his fall 2015 fashion show to the raspberry two-piece suit she wore to the La Prairie event in September. “I think he is a genius designer, besides which he is a lovely human being,” she shared.

Some of her favorite looks were definitely red carpet standouts. She said the three below — the embroidered Zac Posen floral skirt at the 2015 Emmys, the Alexander Vidal sparkly yellow gown to the 2016 Emmys and the zebra Balmain design to the 2017 Golden Globe Awards — were three looks “I really loved.”

“It goes back to the creativity,” Light said of why she adores those looks. “It goes back to the artistry of the creator that I can see in it. And when I put it on, I can feel something‹. There is an emotional connection to what that artist has created.”

One thing she looks for, now more than ever, is sleeves (as seen here). “I usually tend to wear long sleeves or three-quarter sleeves,” she said. “I just feel more comfortable in that. It’s been interesting because people have come up to me and said there’s an elegance to wearing long sleeves, especially with so much sleeveless and strapless . I used to wear that more, but more recently, I¹ve just been wearing the long sleeves. I just love it.”

So, if she were to expound any advice it would be this: When you get dressed, “come from your understanding of yourself, and who you want to project into the world,” she advised. “And then honor the designer, ‹the creative person who took the time and had the thought of what goes into something. Fashion isn’t just about putting something on because it’s a name designer. It’s about what that artist is creating and what you get to share by wearing it.”

Herschel’s Co-Founder Explains Why You See His Backpacks Everywhere: ‘Good Design Is Democratic’

A woman on the subway. A suited businessman on his way downtown. A middle school girl on her way to school. A photographer carting around his equipment. A senior citizen touring New York City. All of these people had one thing in common: They were wearing Herschel Supply Company

The eight-year-old Canadian brand has enjoyed the type of rare and rapid success companies can only dream of, and it’s because of who wears it: Everybody. And thanks to it being sold at some of the biggest retailers, from youth-targeted companies like Asos and Urban Outfitters to Nordstrom and Shopbop, it has reached full proliferation with children and grandparents alike wearing the brand. In fact, fans of Herschel have bought over 15 million products of color-blocked backpacks, wallets and now, newly launched clothing—all complete with a signature patch identifying its Herschel status.

However, the founders, brothers Jamie (below left) and Lyndon Cormack (below right), say that market domination was never the goal, though it’s a nice benefit. “We knew there was a big opportunity to come up with something that was design-driven, something that had classic it in its nature, but also had a really nice attention to detail,” Lyndon tells PEOPLE. 

So, in November 2009, the brothers launched their company—named after the rural Canadian town Herschel, Saskatchewan—in Vancouver, Canada with a divide-and-conquer approach: Jamie heads up design and product, while Lyndon handles marketing and sales. 

“We are where were at because of Jamie’s precise attention to detail and how passionate he is about design and product,” says Lyndon. “Myself, I tend to be quite a macro-thinker in relation to operations and I’m definitely motivated to say yes more than no.”

Their commitment to designing what Lyndon calls “modernized, nostalgic products” has translated into big business: They are stocked in over 10,000 places in 72 countries around the world and they employ over 170 people, including 30 dedicated solely to product design, Cormack says. (Below, a shot of the Vancouver headquarters.)

Lyndon credits this success to one essential thing: “Good design is democratic,” he says. 

“People are going to respond to well-designed products,” he says. “We do design a little bit more specifically for the 16- to 28-year-old guy and girl. But we feel that our aesthetic is so timeless and it resonates far beyond that and it does, which is pretty amazing. When you see my mom, who is 69-years-old, carrying a Herschel, it doesn’t look out of place.” 

So, are they surprised by their cult following? “No,” says Lyndon. “I’m not surprised that it has resonated with so many people, but we are definitely extremely happy that we have become successful in such a short amount of time. We feel very fortunate about that.” 

No wonder you see those darn backpacks so often. According to the company, the three bestselling and most popular are the Settlement ($59.99 to $69.99), the Pop Quiz ($74.99 to $84.99) and the Little American ($99.99 to $109.99) styles, pictured at the top, as well as the Novel duffle bag ($84.99 to $119.99), pictured above. 

However, the top-selling piece is actually not a backpack or bag at all. It’s the Charlie wallet ($19.99 to $29.99). “Most people would assume it’s the backpack, but we actually sell more wallets than anything else. It’s only $20 , and that might have something to do with it.” 

As for what the future holds, expect more of what made them famous, and universally appealing, from the beginning. Says Lyndon, “Passion is contagious and I think that if we continue to concentrate on that the future is quite bright.” 

How to Overhaul Your Beauty Routine During Breast Cancer Treatment: 5 Tips from a Survivor

 

Beauty editor Caitlin Kiernan’s life changed after she got a breast cancer diagnosis at 42. “It is no secret that a cancer is a major health crisis, but what most people don’t realize is that is also causes a major identity crisis,” she tells PEOPLE.

“Most of the physical characteristics that inform who we are as individual women — like our style and personality — slowly get stripped away by the side effects of treatment,” she adds. “My hair starting falling out. My breasts were removed. My nails began peeling, badly. I gained over 15 pounds. My skin aged overnight. All of the sudden, I no longer recognized myself. I felt lost.”

So she did what she had done for years as a beauty editor, and called on all of her industry resources to help her understand how to care for her hair, nails, skin and more during treatment. Now, she’s sharing all of her insider intel is in one place with Pretty Sick: The Beauty Guide for Women with Cancer ($19.99; amazon.com), available now, just in time for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “I hope it empowers women to take back some control over their bodies while battling cancer,” she says. “It’s my way of paying it forward.”

Plus, she’s giving PEOPLE readers a sneak peek inside her book by sharing her ultimate five tips for how to still feel like yourself after the diagnosis. Scroll down for Kiernan’s tips.

1. Swap Out Staple Beauty Products

“Chemotherapy changes the mucosal lining of the nose, altering the sense of smell. This changes, how your favorite fragrance smells will smell to you, and how it will smells on your skin. It can also create scent memories linking your everyday beauty items to random moments during your treatment. My advice: shelf your staple products — like your fragrance, body wash, lotion — as close to the day of your diagnosis. This way, your go-to beauty staples won’t remind you of this terrible time later on. Instead, choose items with skin-loving ingredients that are also scent-free.”

2. Apply Nail Oil Daily

“Many patients don’t realize how damaging treatment can be on their nails because changes don’t show up immediately. Nails grow at a very slow rate, so chemotherapy-induced changes typically appear two months after treatment began. Applying nail oil daily can’t reverse the damage but it will help it grow healthier and stronger. Look for oils with hydrating ingredients like Vitamin E, jojoba or sweet almond oil.”

3. Steer Clear of Antioxidants

“Antioxidants are skincare heroes because they help keep cells alive and healthy. This is exactly why you don’t want to use them during treatment! The whole point of chemotherapy is to kill cells so it’s important to avoid ingredients that work against or lessen the impact of your treatment.”

4. Focus on Foundation Formula

“Chemotherapy often causes what I call ‘mood skin,’ which is when your skin changes color, just like a mood ring. One day it will be sallow yellow, the next day it will be puke green, the day after that it’s ruddy pink. Instead of having five different foundations in your makeup bag, the simple fix is to opt for a stick foundation with subtle yellow undertones. The wax-based formula provides an opaque coverage that wears longer and the yellow undertone blends best with skin that’s constantly changing color.”

5. Brow Color is Key

“Drawing brows when you don’t have any can be tricky. Choosing a brow product that’s one shade darker than the color of your hair or wig will help your etched-on arches look realistic. When there isn’t any hair to layer the brow color over, you need a darker shade to create definition that helps frame the eyes. Also opt for a wax-based formula that will stay put even during a workout or hot flash.”

Adriana Lima Doesn’t Plan on Retiring From the Victoria’s Secret Runway Until 40: ‘If I Can Stay Longer, I Will’

Adriana Lima is an icon when it comes to the Victoria’s Secret runway. The Brazilian supermodel has been one of the lingerie brand’s Angels for nearly two decades, since 1999, and now that she’s 36, Lima sees no signs of slowing down, or retiring from the runway.

“That’s something that doesn’t come into my head,” she tells PEOPLE in a new interview featured in this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday. “My plan is to stay as long as my body allows me, at least until I am 40, so that’s four or so more years. But if I can stay longer, I will.” 

This year, Lima and the rest of the Victoria’s Secret Angels will be heading to Shanghai, China for the first time. And her advice for first-timers—just have fun. “It’s a huge career opportunity to be in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show,” she says. “They’re going to have a great time,” she notes of the new class. 

RELATED VIDEO: Why Adriana Lima Feels More Beautiful Than Ever

“The girls are fun and there’s not such a thing as competing with each other,” she adds. “It’s all about enjoying ourselves so I’m sure that they may be nervous but once they get together they realize it’s going to be easy, and it’s going to be a fun show.” 

In the meantime, Lima is heading to reality TV. She’s the new host of Lifetime’s reality competition show American Beauty Star, which features 12 hairstylist and makeup artists contestants vying to be the next big thing in the beauty world. It airs Thursdays at 10:30/9:30c. 

 

And while she was a little nervous about filming — “I was a little afraid because English is my second language” — “it went so well.” Plus, she also has Sir John, Beyoncé’s makeup artist, by her side, as he is a mentor on the show (in the way that Tim Gunn is for Project Runway). “I cannot think of someone more talented and kind. Plus, he had so many experiences that he shared with us.” 

As for the contestants, “they are extremely talented,” she says. “But it’s not just about who is best. We learn about who they were prior to the show, their goals, where they get inspired, their struggles. They also show you a lot of hair and makeup tips to do at home.” 

So, what’s her top tip for feeling beautiful? “It starts from the inside,” she says. “You can have expensive dresses or shoes, but if you’re not feeling great, you’re not going to shine.”

Julia Roberts’ Style Confessions: Shunning Trends, What She Wears for Date Night with Her Husband and More

When we met Julia Roberts in a quaint hotel in Verona, Italy — where the award-winning actress and mother of three was on hand to celebrate her new campaign for the European hosiery brand Calzedonia and later attend the company’s annual runway “Leg Show” — she wore a variation on what’s become her signature style: black-and-white, which a menswear twist.

“I do love black and white,” PEOPLE’s reigning Most Beautiful Woman told us of her go-to look in an interview for our new issue, on newsstands Friday. That day, her outfit consisted of tortoiseshell frames by Paul Smith, a white silk blouse by Equipment, a short black skirt by Givenchy, fishnet tights by Calzedonia and black patent brogues by Church’s (shown below, though she switched into booties later). “I love something about the simplicity and elegance of it — and it’s modern.”

And that’s not all she had to say about her style: The star (who, in addition to her Calzedonia partnership is also a beauty ambassador for Lancôme) revealed more fashion confessions during our chat, which took place in the same town Shakespeare had set Romeo + Juliet and just steps away from ancient ruins.

“I find fashion incredibly valuable and interesting,” she said during our discussion. Scroll down to find out the actress’s take on trends, date night style and so much more.

I think trends are …
“A game I don’t have enough time to play. I have to stick with my classics.”

One thing I put on that always makes me feel amazing is …
“A scarf. It makes me feel cozy and secure.”

When I wear beautiful jewelry, like the 52-carat Chopard emerald at the Cannes Film Festival, I feel …
“Sort of terrified! Like, what if I lost it, or someone just pulled it off my neck? But I think I was surrounded by 75 invisible bodyguards who would protect me. It was so gorgeous.”

When it comes to date night I wear….
“I have so many responses to that, and most of them are wildly inappropriate. Probably something that my husband likes. I get dressed more for him than for me.”

When I see photos of my style in the ’90s, I think …“There are a few minor cringes here and there, but I think for the most part I feel relatively unscathed. Am I kidding myself? I might be kidding myself. But let me just live in that thought.”

My relationship with my stylist Elizabeth Stewart is …“Amazing. She is not afraid to disagree with me or force me to try on things that I don’t want to try on. She’s incredible.”

When it comes to shopping…“I’m not a great shopper, actually. That’s where the great relationships I have with people like Riccardo Tisci have been helpful. He understands me, and he understands what I like to wear. But the first designer I ever felt any kinship or any relationship with was Giorgio Armani. He is just one of the kindest people and such a timeless, incredible, classic designer. And because I’m so attracted to menswear, I was really attracted to him to start with. He really vaulted me into the idea of what fashion could mean, and so I’m very appreciative.”

If I could have one fashion dream, it would be…
“In today’s world, I wish we had the interest in, perhaps, going back in time a little bit and dressing up to travel. Dressing up to go to dinner. Things like that, which I miss. I think, well that was kind of nicer when we did things like that.”

I love a good piece of eyewear …
“I do. Most of my eyewear is Paul Smith. It makes sense that I would gravitate toward that brand because of my love of menswear. I think you shouldn’t wear the same eyeglasses everyday, so I try to change it up, but they’re all variations on the same theme.”

I own too many …“Perfect white shirts. Everybody makes a great white shirt and they get you because they’re each a little bit different from each other, and you’re like, ‘Oh, but this color! Oh, but the fabric of this one!’ Dolce & Gabbana makes one of my favorites ones that I have, I have a great Hermes one — but just one — and I have a lot of Givenchy in my closet.”

I love a good pair of tights because …“It always makes the difference—that little bit of extra effort.”

My favorite type of shoe is …
“I have a brogue addiction. Church’s makes really comfortable ones.”

My ‘Me Time’ is …“The morning. I’ve always been a morning person. Ninety percent of what I’m going to accomplish in the day is probably done before 11 a.m. I like to get up way before the kids, which is getting harder and harder because they are morning people too. I like to just wake up and get some things done for myself and make breakfast.”

Yara Shahidi Vows Not to Break the Internet With Her Red Carpet Looks: ‘I Appreciate Baby Steps’

At 17, Yara Shahidi has carved out a style worthy of longtime red carpet veterans. Her looks are adventurous yet fun, aspirational yet achievable, and daring yet never veer toward shocking territory.

And Shahidi says it’s going to stay that way.

“I appreciate baby steps,” the star of the Emmy-nominated comedy series Black-ish, future Harvard student, and face of Fossil’s new Fossil Q Venture watch tells PeopleStyle. “I appreciate stepping outside my comfort zone, but at the same time I still want it to come from a natural place of growth, rather than stepping out to be different. There’s no need . I have a lot of other years to do that. Also, being 17, there’s so much room to have fun and not be conventional.

Her “baby steps” are taken with the help of stylist Jason Bolden. Their latest look for the 2017 MTV VMAs featured a one-shoulder Zimmermann gown in Shahidi’s go-to hue: “My favorite color on a day-to-day is just yellow,” she says. “And I love a great mustard!”

Together, Bolden and Shahidi make sure an outfit has two things: “It’s something that I not only feel comfortable in, but really establishes my presence,” says the star, who describes her looks as unorthodox and loud. “What I really appreciate about clothing is just its ability to help you take up space. When you put on a bold color, you can’t help but fill up a room.”

Some of her favorite looks recently include the Fear of God sweats and Libertine sparkly shirt combination she wore to the 2017 Teen Choice Awards (“It’s so unabashedly me”); the purple belted Elie Saab flouncy dress she wore to Black Girls Rock (“Purple has always been my favorite color”); and the high-neck Chanel blouse and wide-leg jeans combination she chose for a Chanel event (“What’s fun is figuring out the small details that make an outfit different and the neckline is one of them”).

“I think this speaks to the idea that I just want to have fun,” she says of her red carpet choices. “It’s always a reflection of who I am in that moment.”

Lately, she’s also applied her playful attitude for fashion to accessories, specifically when it comes to earrings. “I don’t know if many people picked up on the fact that there have been multiple events in the past couple months where I’ve worn mismatched earrings,” she says (like for her second look at the VMAs, shown above).

“But it depends on my hair, too,” she says. “Sometimes it’s huge and takes over. Sometimes it’s braided. Sometimes it’s doing certain things. But it really comes down to the look—sometimes accessories make it and sometimes I’m going to let this outfit speak for itself.”

Another accessory she loves? A good watch, which makes sense since she’s now the face of Fossil. “I’m somebody who collected watches when I was little, and I have always enjoyed the importance of time,” says the star, who now uses the Fossil Q Venture, a digital smartwatch that tracks your activities and syncs to your smartphone. “I wear one a lot when I travel, it’s a way to keep myself grounded.”

Ultimately, when it comes to fashion, she says she’s still figuring it all out.

“Just looking at the past couple years being on Black-ish, my style has evolved,” she says. “It really comes from taking small risks and figuring out what works and what doesn’t. For me, the colors that I’ve worn have changed and the cuts of shirt that I wear have changed—but I have never sacrificed comfort.”
