I’ve written before about how much I love the Forever 21 as a “safe place” to try ridiculous trends–at most you’re out $20–but I also love Forever 21 for their great take on basics. Five-dollar white tee shirts, ten-dollar skinny jeans (that are seriously amazing), flip flops and nail polish and fairly decent underwear and, if you’re in a pinch, even work out gear. (Then there’s the rest of Forever 21, approximately 85% really bad club wear…)
If I’m browsing my favorite online shopping haunts and I come really close to pulling the trigger on something full-price, I always take a step back and see if I can’t find that same piece at Forever 21 first. For example: that insanely awesome ombréd maxi skirt there? Every bit as chic as this J.Crew skirt HERE, and at a fraction of the price! So there we have it. Basics, silly trends you’d never really actually try except they’re so cheap, and the occasional perfect knock off of the knock off of the knock off. Thanks for that, Forever 21. You’re all right!
After the jump, the best of what’s new in stock this week! Hope you enjoy!
