Welcome to Hook’d, Yahoo’s new shopping show! Every Wednesday, we share the most exclusive steals and deals in fashion, tech, home and more. Our hosts this week are shopping mavens themselves: Yahoo’s TV style correspondent, Chassie Post, on-air personality and Youtuber Kennedy Johnson and TV host and beauty expert Sandra Vergara.
This week, actress and designer Cara Santana sat down with our stylish hosts and shared the inside scoop behind her fashion line with Kohl’s. The collection, which dropped on October 7, is made to be inclusive of all bodies and budgets, with sizes ranging from 00 to 22, with select pieces going up to size 34. The best part? No piece is over $100!
“We all have to get dressed,” Cara shared. “We all deserve luxury and accessibility and why can’t clothes be fashionable and affordable?”
Cheers to that!
The collection is so special to the Santa Clarita Diet actress because Kohl’s was one of the first places she shopped with her mom.
“The first place I shopped growing up was Kohl’s,” Cara revealed. “That’s where my mom taught me about fashion and smart shopping.”
The collection itself is a mix of brights and neutrals, so there’s something for everyone. Cara herself wore a pair of faux-leather cargo pants ($42.49 with code SAVENOW, originally $68) which she styled with a figure-hugging black bodysuit ($21.24 with code SAVENOW, originally $36) and a playful blazer ($72).
How to go from day to night
Love the faux-leather pants, but not sure how you’d style a pair yourself? Cara suggests pairing the edgy style with a chunky sweater for a day-to-night look, and throwing on a pair of sneakers.
“It’s very fashionable, very New York,” she noted.
Going to a meeting, or grabbing a drink with a few friends? She suggests teaming the pants with a pop of color— a chunky cropped bright pink knit ($38.24 with code SAVENOW, originally $60)—and finishing it off with a strappy heel or a black pump. Consider your next desk-to-drinks look sorted!
How to dress up neon
Don’t fear dayglow colors! Cara loves wearing brights when she knows she has to look good, whether she’s running errands, going out, or getting chased by the paparazzi.
Cara paired a neon overcoat ($59.49 with code SAVENOW, was $98) with her favorite bodysuit ($21.24 with code SAVENOW, originally $36) in the same shade. She toned down the bright color with a pair of super-soft gray joggers ($31.44 with code SAVENOW, was $50). So chic, and more important, comfortable.
