Forever 21 is one of those retailers that we feel is worth digging through because you never know what you might find. Beyond the expected on-trend items, such as poplin dresses and mesh mules, you'd be surprised by the number of basics fashion girls acquire from this affordable store. This week, as we checked out the new arrivals section at Forever 21, the balance between those much-needed basics and of-the-moment finds was idyllic at best.
When you hit a sweet spot like that at a fast-fashion retailer, it's safe to assume that the best items won't be around for long. Fashion girls have a unique ability to search for and spot the best affordable product like its buried treasure, and if we had to take a guess, the roundup of summer-approved items ahead are sure to be seen on your favorite fashion bloggers and celebrities in no time.
