Even though I’m now well into my twenties, I somehow still find myself going back to (budget fashion heaven) Forever 21. I don’t think they actually stipulate an age limit, do they? But, oh to be 21 again. Amiright?! In any case F21’s contemporary range is aimed at twenty to thirtysomething women, apparently. And I’m quite a fan I have to say! I understand, as someone in their mid-20s, that it can be difficult to navigate F21 at times – knowing what to buy and what to definitely avoid. But more often than not, I somehow manage to find really cute on-trend pieces which I can probably just about pull off. I say that because I often tend to buy things that would also meet the approval of both my sisters – who are 21 and 15.
The contemporary range really is the way forward for those who want to avoid outlandish styles (not a slogan T in sight); the collection is more sophisticated with individual items in neutral tones, but still remaining trendy and still at a low cost. That’s the beauty of fast fashion – whatever the current trends you can be sure that F21 has something on offer. I love the current Forever 21 collection at the moment. Every time I happen to stop by their online store I find a new ‘must-have’ item which ticks off one of the key trends for this season. This isn’t boding too well for my bank balance, despite the whole collection being very purse friendly. I recently made a small on-line purchase which included a super cute button down denim skirt for just £14 – a fraction of the price the one I was deliberating about buying from Topshop. When I saw the skirt pop up on the ‘new in’ page I just knew I had to have it, and the price certainly sealed the deal. Other items I purchased included; basic t-shirts for easy layering, a denim pinafore, and a slogan T which I promise is more retro than it is trashy. I think that if you’re after a few key items to tie in this seasons’ trends without breaking the bank, hit up Forever 21 and let me know what you find.
^ here are the items I purchased – mainly denim – which I have already styled up, so watch out for outfit posts to follow!
Sidenote: Forever 21 now offers free delivery to a store – which I opted for.
I love you, Forever 21.
