Feminine looks have always been correlated with sweetness, delicacy and even innocence. Rebellious yet classy were not exactly attributes that first come to mind when describing such looks but all this changes once we begin to take a look at the latest spring/summer 2012 Forever 21 lookbook which features gorgeous pink hair model Charlotte Free. A daring attitude paired with glamour prove to be the winning combo for the new season and the simple and edgy looks with a twist are here to stay, it seems.
Though we might associate the store with teenage focused attires, the newest lookbook doesn’t exclusively provide such outfits. In fact, one look beyond the daring attitude displayed, we begin to notice several versatile pieces which can become fashion staples this season. Colorful blazers, androgynous shirts or bold hued skirts are among the options that come to mind. Put together yet simple at their core, these outfits are fairly easy to recreate and adapt.
Stars, stripes, plaids and polka dots are only a few elements which add a distinctive vibe to the looks. Mixing prints does have its place in the lookbook, yet the focus is placed mostly on versatility and gorgeous pastels or subtle contrasts like fancy collars or thin belts. Sheen touches or knitted pieces are other subtle presences that are worth taking into account. They are the key to achieving a gorgeous new season look in the same perspective as the brand ultimately boils down to selecting your focal points carefully and making sure to accessorize right.
Though many looks impress without the use of too many accessories, in other cases statement cuffs and layered bracelets, gorgeous necklaces, sunglasses with a subtle retro vibe or fun belts which add proportion and contrasts prove a wonderful choice. Use some of the ideas from the collection to add a fun glam vibe to your new season outfits easily with versatile pieces and smart details to liven things up.
