How to dress for court: The many conservative styles of Lindsay Lohan

We could all learn a thing or two from LiLo about playing the part of the not-guilty defendant

If you strip away the bad overhead lighting, the drab interiors, and the potential to be whisked away to jail, the courtroom is really just another place for celebrity defendants to perform, right? After all, court is a place where you're trying to convey your law-abiding persona to the 12 jurors and judge who hold your fate in their hands. And when you've got a headline-grabbing reputation as a hard-partying lawbreaker, dressing for court becomes absolutely critical to shaping juror perception — really, it's something of an art form. Consider the courtroom style book of Lindsay Lohan, who peppers her tucked-in taste with a bit of flair that says, "I may be in the wrong, but these giant sunglasses make me look oh so right." Notepads ready? Let's begin:
