Hi guys! if you’re here, it means you watched my short video on Reels. For those of you who are not familiar with Reels, it is a new video sharing platform on Instagram. You can record and edit 15 seconds multi-clip videos with audios from some of your favorite artists. I am not a huge fan of TikTok simply because I thought it was a lot of work to be on too many social media platforms. But I am super excited about Reels and I have been cooking up different ways to create new video content on the new platform.
If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of the Forever 21 clothing brand. So, I put together some of my favorite skirts from the brand and I am going to be sharing with you how I styled them today. The video on these skirts is on Instagram. So, follow me on that platform if you would like to view it.
First up is the Rhinestone 0-Buckle Mini Skirt. I love the black-red color and mini heart patterns. The price is currently $13.99. It is such a great find y’all. I paired with a Ruffled Mock-Neck Sage Top, also from Forever 21. the price is currently $16.09. It looks exactly like the picture and the material feels amazing.
I adore this Floral Mini Skirt that I bought on sale for about $6.00. I am obsessed with the white, black, and red flower patterns. It also details mini white buttons in the front, full lining, and a flounce hem. Did I mention the material is chiffon? so good right? When I posted this outfit on Instagram, someone in the comment section asked me where I purchased the top from. Well, what do you know, it is also from Forever 21. It is a Ribbed Smocked Crop Top that is currently $9.90. I feel the need to add that the top did not come this way, I had to do a bit of styling to the get the exact look I wanted. the elastic on the top came in handy. Unfortunately, it is no longer available.
For only $23.99, you could have brought home this Faux Leather Wrap Mini Skirt. Unfortunately, this item is no longer available. But you can tell from the picture that the color is catchy and the faux material is durable. The one problem I had with this skirt was that the button at the top that was supposed to hold the wrap portion of the skirt together fell off almost immediately. It makes it difficult for the skirt to stay in place without the button. But that’s okay, it is still lovely. The blue Faux Suede Slingback Heels were $22.99. The gorgeous Faux Pearl Embellished Mesh Top was $24.90, and the Faux Pearl Drop Earrings were $6.32. Needless to say, the whole fit was from Forever 21.
This Satin Ruched Mini Skirt though! this skirt has told no lies since the beginning of time. For only $22.00 the copper color makes the skirt look so expensive and sultry. Paired with any blouse, shirt, or top, it’ll bring any outfit to life! The Tan Braided Thong Sandals are also from Forever 21. These sandals are my go-to footwear for the summer. For only $9.99, it is durable, the color goes with everything, and it never hurts my feet.
This Faux Leather skirt is no longer available on Forever 21. I feel especially lucky because I bought it way before it sold out. At the time, it was $17.90. I paired it with a black turtle neck I bought at a thrift store. And a pair of Tiered Tassel Drop Earrings also from Forever 21. The earrings are fun and light. They also have gold detailing, so be mindful of that when pairing it with any outfit, should you choose to purchase yourself a pair. It is currently $6.90.
I felt sexy and flirty in this Faux-Fur-Trim Mini Skirt. Unfortunately, I have only worn it twice and this picture was taken back in 2018. So, pardon the quality. It is also no longer available, but at the time, the price was $18.32. Which I thought was expensive but it ended up being a great investment. It is a skirt I can pair with any outfit for a flirty feel. The red purse is also from Forever 21, the price was $12.53. The Floral Print Glen Plaid Shirt is one of my favorite shirts ever from the Forever 21 brand. The black and cream color makes me feel confident and the low neck makes me feel daring. It is also no longer available but the price was $17.90. A little fun fact, the turtle neck above was what I used to tie my hair. Versatility is key when it comes to fashion.
