Lauren ConradLauren Conrad's second novel, "Sweet Little Lies," has been sitting atop the New York Times bestseller list for three weeks now -- and the 'Hills' heroine's fans have been flocking to see her at signings across the country.

Her book-circuit looks have been classically cute -- and lucky for shoppers who admire her style, Kohl's has quietly marked down LC's entire collection by 30%. And standard shipping is free on orders that exceed $75.

The true gems of the collection are the dresses -- they're ideal for capturing that Conrad's easy, lovely nights-in-L.A. vibe. And the price cuts mean there's plenty of budget left over to complete the look. Below, three party-perfect ensembles for under $100.
LOOK #1: A floral that's fresh, not fussy
This floral chiffon dress's gorgeous draping makes it well worth its original price of $60 -- and now, it's only $39.99. Keep the edge on the look with these wrapped peep-toe heels from Simply Vera Vera Wang ($39.99). And this sleek blue clutch ($17.99) echoes the flowers' hue. Total: $97.97.

LOOK #2: A pop of color in a classic shape
This frock ($39.99) could have come right out of Conrad's closet -- she's forever rocking belted, slightly billowing minidresses. So it makes sense to style it with the sort of no-clutter accessories she favors, like these straightforward pumps ($36.99) and a substantial bangle ($16.80). Total: $93.78.

LOOK #3: A showstopping LWD
Having an LWD -- little white dress -- is increasingly becoming as important as having the all-time-favorite LBD. And this one ($39.99) is guaranteed to turn heads. Forget 'if you spend 100 bucks' -- if you spend anything, put it towards this item. But if you can afford to accessorize, top it with these black-and-ivory snakeskin slingbacks ($26.99) and these mesh-pearl drop earrings ($11.20). You'll come in under budget -- but with a dress this shimmery, that's all you need. Total: $78.18.
