There was always room for another trench.
You knew it, I knew it. I’m pretty certain Forever 21 knew it.
And when they invited me to choose some favourite pieces from their new Spring collection, a sort of pastel-hued haze of excitement came over me. Quickly followed by an internet scour of their website.
The way I see it, high-street fast fashion should only be attempted online or early morning. So with two hours and a triple threat skinny cap under my belt, I made like Alice and
tumbled took the lift down the flagship rabbit hole.
And I was right, early birding the rails I had my pick of the finest summer threads. Freshly folded denims next to thankfully colour coded cottons, a nice touch when you’re in the depths of a coffee coma I thought.
Consider the facts:
Super swishy trench, a key player. She’ll be spring/summer striker in my sartorial line-up. Light and silky enough to roll away midday, an evening sheath when the sun sets.
The perfect suede short, clearly a nod to the Chloe runway and a skilful starter for the transitionally challenged.
Then paired together with THE classic staple, a clean white top with billowy appeal. The sandals, simple, and oh-so-tan-hued enough for just about any stage of my working panetone complexion.
If Oxford Street’s the player, Forever 21’s the coach.
stay tuned for my next F21 instalment.. I’m going out… out.
