You want a piece you’ll have in your closet for years and years? One that will always work beautifully in a pinch, and seemingly never age? You don’t have to spend $800 on a pair of designer heels. Instead, snatch up a crisp white blouse. Or two. Or ten!
While I love a good trend, it’s no secret that the classic look is my ultimate go-to. And no matter the season or style, a structured white top always forms the perfect base. I bought my first white Ralph Lauren button down last fall, and have worn it in a million and one ways since. When I came across this gorgeous architectural piece from Forever 21 for $25… yes, $25… I knew I’d found another timeless staple!
My fun scrappy suede platforms helped round out a great transitional look, but I absolutely can’t wait to wear this top with riding boots in a month or so. Talk about timeless! And while the top has a lot of shape, it layers beautifully under winter outerwear, seen in this recent Insta. Obsessed.
I have to give one more shoutout to Forever 21‘s online return policy, since it used to deter me in the past! Unlike in-store purchases where returns are only given in-store credit, if you order online, you can get a full refund. So spend a few minutes browsing the site… I think you’ll be surprised at all the great pieces you find!
