FOREVER 21 picks

As much as I love a luxury item (as of late, my Jenni Kayne d'Orsay flats and Karen Walker Worship Sunnies), I have no problem saving some bucks on seasonal things - especially when it comes to t-shirts or trendy items. Forever21 is one of my favorite shops to scoop up some great pieces without spending too much - in fact, most items are $30 and under! With fall right around the corner (insert 100 smiley face emojis here), I selected some of my favorite pieces that look far pricier than they actually are, and will take you right into colder weather with ease (and money still left in your wallet).

High-Slit Longline Top ($15.90) - a super versatile shirtdress that is perfect for layering. I love both neutral color options too. 

Striped T-Shirt Dress ($12.90) - classic stripes that you can wear as a dress or as a tunic with skinny jeans and a leather jacket. 

Side-Slit Turtleneck Top ($24.90) - for some reason, I love sleeveless turtleneck tops, but can't stand them with sleeves. This is a great version of what I love - charcoal grey, ribbed, long, perfect. 

Dolman Shift Dress ($22.90) - the grey/blue hue of this shirt is really nice, and it's perfect for dressing up for work, or down for drinks. 

Longline Space Dye Top ($15.90) - another perfect piece for layering. The neutral grey shade allows it to be paired with pretty much anything. 

Longline Plaid-Patterned Shirt ($15.99 on sale!) - I love the length of this top. It will be perfect to wear with a cropped sweater or leather jacket over it. 

Plaid Flannel Shirt ($22.90) - the bright red of this flannel is awesome - and I love the slightly boxy style of this top. It will be a great item to wear when I need something comfy and casual. 

Two-Tone Boucle Coat ($55.90) - the priciest of my picks, but by far the coolest. I love tweed blazer-style coats - especially with cropped sleeves - and this one fits the bill perfectly

Cutout Mesh Bralette ($7.90) - super pretty and super cheap. I bought two. 

Brushed Twill Utility Jumpsuit ($34.90) - I love a good jumpsuit, and I could definitely see me wearing this with rolled up ankles, cognac-colored booties, and a leather clutch.

Marled Colorblock Bomber Jacket ($16.00 on sale!) - a classic jacket style in classic colors. A perfect addition to everyone's closet. 

Shirred Dot Print Dress ($27.90) - I love the flow of this dress and how easily it could be layered or worn alone.
