Every woman, no matter what her size or height is, needs a maxi dress in her closet. Most, like this Braided Strap Maxi Dress, have an empire waist or a similar effect. So, if you’ve got a little tummy, it will disappear under the dress. Even if you’re short, there’s no reason not to wear one: The all-over color creates a continuous line from shoulders to ankles, which will make you look taller. Plus, the maxi dress perfectly transitions from spring to summer because it’s a great foundation for layering. Oh, and did we mention this one shows off your back, shoulders, and collarbone, so you’ll look sexy, too?
Forever 21 is already taking over with their affordable fashion and forays into beauty and home design, but now they’ve decided it’s time to bring a bit of designer experience into their stores. In an effort to match their fellow fast fashion brands like H&M and Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 signed a deal with designer Brian Lichtenberg to create graphic T-shirts. Now, we’ll reserve our comments about graphic T-shirts as a whole (ahem, Ed Hardy) until we see them, because Brian does in fact have celeb credibility. Interestingly enough, the brand decided to give Brian creative control over the same clothing item as the celebrities who design t-shirts for Forever 21. Now, will we see designers like Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano sign up to create their own F21 collabs? [WWD] Keep reading »
Sometimes you just need a little fashion pick-me-up. This is all good, just as long as you don’t let your “treat” turn into an oops-I-accidentally-blew-my-rent-on-a-pair-of-shoes. This Forever 21 t-shirt is the perfect option. A basic with a fun bow detail, it’s just enough to add a bit of newness to your wardrobe this week. (We’d pair it with a blazer and some smart bottoms at the office.) Oh, and it will cost you less than lunch. Wins all around.
For so long the skinny jean has either been uber-hipster or uber-sexy. Now it’s found some middle ground by becoming just a bit boyish, thanks to Forever 21′s construction pocket cut which has been adapted for a tight leg. The flattering back pockets add a little something different too, so maybe, for the first time, you won’t be wearing the same jeans as every other girl in the room.

This two-tone cardigan from Forever 21′s Twelve by Twelve line proves our point that black and brown can be worn together. Notice how the taupe-y brown softens the basic black so the complete look has a classic Chanel feel, but the zipper flower pin adds a bit of kitsch. Pair this cardigan with blue or black jeans or a black pencil skirt for a sophisticated, fun outfit. [$29, Forever 21] Keep reading »
Forever 21 has unveiled the new arrivals to the Twelve by Twelve line, and we’re totally smitten. Maybe it’s the styling. Maybe it’s the fact that model Georgie Badiel is the epitome of Parisian chic, despite hailing from Burkina Faso. Or maybe it’s simply the clothes. One thing’s for sure, we’ve got some spending to do. Check out more photos of the line after the jump. [Forever 21] Keep reading »
Forever 21 goes avant-garde with their new skirt offering, which gives a new meaning to the phrase “hands-on attention.” We’re not really sure how we feel about it though. [Forever 21] Keep reading »
Please, Forever 21, at least try to make it look like you’re not totally ripping off the street artist Banksy with this $22 cotton hoodie. Admittedly, he probably doesn’t care that he’s being ripped off by a mall chain store: Banksy is so “arty” that he doesn’t sell doodads with his designs on them; instead he posts JPEGs of all his artwork online for his admirers to take for free.
But still. It’s the principle of the thing, Forever 21: think up your own designs! [Forever 21, Banksy] Keep reading »
It might have taken a while for the military jacket trend to trickle down to the affordable mass retailers, but we’ve finally found a version we love. (Of course, when you spend time seeking out the perfect alternative to the luxury model, the second you find something, no one’s really talking about it anymore. Which is just as well.) This Forever 21 soldier jacket plays up the style well with its epaulets and antique-inspired buttons, but stays far away from camp with a neutral color. [$27.80, Forever 21] Keep reading »
Continuing their obvious bid for complete and total retail domination, Forever 21 has expanded into beauty, because clearly they’re not satisfied simply sticking to fast fashion. The new collection, Love & Beauty, will launch on Nov. 8 and include lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. While the products surely won’t be Sephora-style quality, it’ll most likely be the cheapest and easiest way to try new beauty trends — a similar approach for many to their trendy clothing. If you spend $75 today, you’ll receive a free lip gloss to try … and hopefully you’ll love it enough to become a fan of the line. This is just the beginning of their expansion though, as the brand is planning on moving into the home goods sector as well. Like we said, total domination. [Forever 21] Keep reading »
