Pre-Fall With Forever 21

all clothes from Forever 21: polka dot top, black skinny jeans, rust skirt, giraffe earrings and mustard cross-body

Forever 21 recently invited me to style some Pre-Fall looks and I was happy for the excuse to pop into the nearest shop to pick out a few pieces. I always found great separates there when I was in college and I'm still impressed by the versatile pieces and broad selection they offer. I was only supposed to style one outfit here, but I couldn't resist the idea of showing two different ways this great tank top works. Earlier this summer on the hunt for the perfect black jeans I found these skinnies at Forever 21 (see my earlier attempts at rollerskating) but it's the first time I dressed up them up a bit. The first outfit is breezy and comfortable, perfect for transitioning weather days. The second outfit is much more my usual style and the color of the skirt is so perfect for fall. You can see it with grey tights and cozy boots on autumn days, but right now it works with bare legs, a silky blouse and sandals--ideally I think I'd wear this with ballet flats and a high bun but alas my hair is currently too short and my ballet flats are temporarily missing. Anyway, here you go--three pieces and two distinct outfits perfect to get you in the mood for spiced lattes and longer nights.



  1. Hey! Do you have links to the polka dot top and the red skirt? Thanks!

  5. That tank top is great!!! It is very classic but also has a bit of a twist too. I can imagine using that tank top to make a bunch of outfit combinations. The color of the skirt makes me long for autumn.

  6. @All kitties flock to me, I found the skirt on the British F21 website, here:

  7. Forever 21 is great for on trend pieces that you aren't sure about, because they are so inexpensive - but like too many other fast fashion stores, all their garments need to be steamed or ironed before you wear them. More often than not the crinkly way something looks on a hanger dissuades me from purchasing it.

  8. I love that first look. That bag and top especially.

  9. i love that skirt!
