I recently won a raffle for a $100 Forever 21 gift card. It’s exciting, but the problem is, Forever 21 has very trendy items and I’m more of a “classic” type (think Banana Republic, J. Crew, etc.) I work in an office and am always looking for more work clothes. Can you help me put together a look from Forever 21 that’s mature and classy?
Beth, I used to have the same thoughts about Forever 21, but I think this outfit for only $98.80 proves the versatility of their selection. And this is just the beginning; you'll be amazed at the classic and work appropriate styles they offer for the more mature.
