Fall previews can’t be complete without knowing what trends the budget-friendly fashion spot Forever 21 has up their sleeve, or down their swiss dot peep-toes. Oh yes, there were some adorable dots on platform peep-toes with chunky heels over yellow hosiery. Fall 2011 is going to be sassy!
The preview at Skylight West was broken up into four categories: Rustic Cabin, Vintage Darling, Boho and Midnight Angel. Each installation channeled a feeling of fresh style. Rustic Cabin was an eclectic mix of navajo prints, shorts layered over hosiery, paired with a sexy boots and an easy knit. They even went the extra style mile and topped these looks off with feather details – now who doesn’t love some rustic feathers?!
Chairs on their sides, mirrors and tea cups on a stark white background set the stage for excessive pearls, lace and frills. Enter Vintage Darling. As I passed by the sugary-sweet looks, I couldn’t help but notice the California-esque scene going on in the distance. I literally thought I had been transported to Coachella when natural wedges, hippie-like maxis and flared denim filled my boho vision. A stark contrast across the way came from the Midnight Angel scene where sharp stripes of black, white and bikes set the stage for a punk-infused collection. Leather, lace and bold boots gave this group a distinct edge. It will be interesting and I’m sure loads of fashionable fun to shop these collections under one roof and blur the lines of style like only a true F21 Fashionista can do!
