Love 21: The Mature Side of Forever 21!

This week I was in a bright & gorgeous Forever 21 (what else is new!) and was drawn to the candy-colored sheer and lace section.

Every gal loves Forever. I can’t think of ONE girl that doesn’t own something from this fantastic store. Sometimes, it’s a hit or miss. But I think I’ll be experiencing way more hits now that I have a new obsession: the Love 21 collection.

They call it Love 21 Contemporary, which has been around for a few years, but I remember hating it; too many prints and WAY too big. But with this early-Fall collection, I think F21 mixed the perfect combination of sweet and sexy that everyone can rock a piece of. There are adorable silky, fluttery blouses and boho skirts. I love the chiffon–awesome for work with tailored pants, and cute for late nights with high-waisted shorts & wedges! It seems a little more expensive than Forever 21’s other stuff, but it’s way more grown-up and trendy! It’s cheap considering the quality is a little better. Perfect for the working hard/playing hard college girl.

Here are some of my favorite stuff from Love 21 Contemporary’s newest clothes!

Poetic Embroidered Shirt, $27.90

And I rocked this ADORABLE top from the Love 21 collection:

I bought this in store, and I can’t seem to find the exact match online. The closest I could find was the Cutout Tie Neck Top! In the picture, it looks aqua, but it’s actually more of a lavender-blue! I wore it to a work meeting, then threw on some high waisted shorts, tucked it in, and went bowling!

  1. I haven’t browsed the Love 21 collection very much yet, but due to your post, I’ll definitely do so! Forever 21 is definitely a very hit or miss store so that I have to agree with you on. I really like the Life In Progress Embroidered Denim Jacket, that’s definitely something I would wear. Really nice post. Also, if you don’t mind, I’d love it if you’d take a peek at my blog!
