It’s amazing how I’ve never come out of Forever 21 empty-handed! There’s always something in there for any conceivable occasion. I was on the lookout for some work wear and I’m not a fan of the old, boring shirt-and-trousers look – I believe work wear can be fun too. This season, I’m incorporating a lot of reds along with neutral colors and my current favorite, electric blue.
Loved the red checked trousers at first sight and simply had to pick them up! I teamed it with a lovely sand dune hued cropped jacket and a light cotton vest inside. I added a few dull gold long necklaces and topped off the look with crimson lips- They never fail to ‘dress up’ any look!
I’m in love with peplums and already have 4 dresses/ tops with these girly trimmings but this neon yellow peplum top instantly caught my eye. I matched it with a lovely electric blue tux blazer (long and single buttoned) and a black/ grey pencil skirt that simply had to be picked up. I loved the contrast and accessorized with a silver serpent- inspired bracelet and a long metallic necklace.
It might be better known for its casual and party wear but Forever 21 really surprised me with its amazing work-wear pieces… it all depends on how you put it together, I guess. Loving my new work closet!
