When it comes to shoe shopping, I tend to be a little more practical when picking a style and color of a particular shoe I am looking for. Most people lean towards this same concept because let’s face it, shoes aren’t cheap! Especially if you are searching for something that will be able to provide durability and comfort that will last you a while, you’re going to be trying on a not-so-cheap shoe. You are also going to want to invest in something that’s going to be versatile with a classic look that you know won’t go out of style within the next few seasons and will already go with a lot of pieces you currently have in your wardrobe.
However, there comes a time when a particular trend is in style that you absolutely love and admire, but may be a little worried about pulling off or how much you would actually wear it. You may not want to splurge on something that you won’t get much use out of or may not be that comfortable. That’s when places like Forever 21 come in handy.
We all appreciate Forever 21 for their fashionable clothes that have generously cheap prices, but most of the time the quality isn’t the best. This is the perfect place to try out a trend that you may not be so sure about.
This Fashionista is actually wearing head to toe Forever 21 and didn’t spend more than $100 dollars on her entire look. All of her pieces are very unique and great examples of trends you don’t need to splurge on, but let’s focus on her shoes. Her silver metallic oxfords are a huge statement piece in her look. Oxfords in general can be worn as an everyday shoe because of their classic look, but because of this particular style, it may not go with a lot in somebody’s closet. This Fashionista styles her flashy kicks perfectly with a pair of striped pants and a button-down that says “Adiós” on the back. Her all-around black and white ensemble is complemented perfectly with the perfect pop of pink on her lips.
Long story short: You don’t need to splurge on a trendy item like shoes to get the look you’re aiming toward. Stores like Forever 21 make it possible to take a fashionable step out of your comfort zone without breaking the bank!
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t let prices or just the fear of trying out something new hold you back when it comes to new and bold trends! I definitely recommend splurging on basics that you know will never go out of style rather than splurging on trendy pieces that you might only get a couple uses out of. Check out stores like Forever 21 when it comes to buying trendy pieces, that way you won’t be too disappointed if those pieces go out of style quickly.”
