Our 20 Favorite Lauren Conrad Outfits to Date, In Honor of Laguna Beach and The Hills' Summer Return

MTV has just announced plans to re-air every single episode of The Hills, plus the first two seasons of Laguna Beach, on weekday mornings throughout this summer. Dubbed "Retro Mania," the reality programming schedule is sure to make us all nostalgic for the early days of one Lauren "L.C." Conrad, now 26, and the auhor of a slew of books and the designer of several successful fashion lines.

To celebrate the revival of two of our all-time favorite MTV series, we decided to take a look back at some of Lauren's best looks. Considering the beachy blonde once introduced an entire generation to "headband braids," jersey maxidresses and Chanel 2.55 bags, there were a lot of ensembles up for consideration—but we think we managed to narrow them down to the very best.

Click through the gallery to see them all—and prepare for Lauren Conrad and the whole Laguna gang to take over your TV screen (again) starting June 25.

She picked an unusually colorful number for a 2007 Us Weekly event. Loving the green beadwork.
