Feeling Fly in Forever 21: Must Have Wardrobe Staples
February 22, 2017
Forever 21 has always been one of my favorite stores. I grew up in Dubai, where I was first introduced to the brand and have shopped there ever since. Forever 21 is a store that is great for finding trendy pieces that are the perfect “staples” to add to your wardrobe. Their clothing is well priced, decent quality and there is something for everyone. If you are someone who likes to mix and match and change up your style every so often, then Forever 21 is the perfect store for you.
For those of you that are unsure of the term “staple”, let me fill you in; a staple is a “timeless piece of clothing that can be worn on a continuous basis, mixed and matched with other pieces to change up your look”. Staples are a wardrobe necessity.
I popped into Forever 21 whilst vacationing in Florida and much to my surprise, they were having a massive sale. Now, I don’t know about you but whenever I see a sale sign, I am there! I absolutely love a good bargain and growing up in Dubai, I learnt how to “bargain” pretty well (if I say so myself).
The first piece that I purchased was this hooded jacket in olive green… one of my all time favorite colors. This jacket is great for a casual lunch date or can be dressed up for an evening out on the town. You can wear it loose, zip it up or tie it in at the waist; defining your waistline and showing off that figure.
This pair of jeans is an absolute win! They were on sale for $5.99 but normally retail at only $7.99 (they sell for R150 in South Africa). Yes, they are “cheap” but they are perfect for a season and will give you a lot of wear. These are skinny, high waist jeans, perfect in length as they sit right above the ankles. They are super comfortable and can be worn with pretty much anything. Definitely a “must buy” and one of my favorite pairs of jeans in my wardrobe.
I am in LOVE with these boots! I have been looking for a pair like this for ages. The color is slightly darker than burnt sienna, they have zips on both sides and they fit like a dream. Boots this color go very nicely with darker jeans and can be warn in both winter and summer.
This black high neck vest is also one of my favorite staples. It’s high neck is very flattering on any body type and is super feminine. A choker also looks great with a top like this!
I’ve always believed that a good pair of jeans, a cute singlet, a casual jacket and some stylish ankle boots are great staples to have in your wardrobe! FYI, I bought all of this for under $25 which is R330… isn’t that crazy! Come shopping with me and I will find you the best bargains around!
