Fabulous Find of the Week: Forever 21 Chiffon Skirt

30 Comments

So I’m kind of obsessed with chiffon lately. It automatically makes any outfit look just a little bit more polished AND expensive – which is always a plus on a college girl’s budget!

Therefore, this week’s Fabulous Find is this amazing chiffon skirt from Forever 21. Although I chose this pretty teal version, it also comes in yellow, an orangey-red, a peachy nude, and a deep magenta – all gorgeous colors that would benefit any girl’s wardrobe! And last but not at least, at only $10, it’s a steal that just simply can’t be passed up.

Outfit Inspiration

To get your inspiration going, here are three cute ways to style this versatile skirt!

1. Earthy Casual

This outfit is a good example of how to accessorize a plain white tee shirt. By pairing the skirt with this white tee, a pair of interesting brown gladiators, and an armful of bangles (note the pretty teal one!) you instantly create a cool, eclectic outfit. Top it all off with a pair of rounded tortoiseshell sunglasses to play off the colors in the bracelets and the sandals, and you’re good to go!

2. Complementary Colors

This look represents a good lesson in matching colors in an outfit – while I’m sure pairing a teal skirt with (almost neon) coral accessories probably isn’t your first instinct, how amazing do the colors look together?! The coral accents really make the teal stand out, and create a bright, fun vibe. Black sandals finish off the outfit nicely without being too much – the colors do enough on their own!

3. Monochrome Madness

This may be one of my favorite dressy outfits I’ve done for the Fabulous Finds column to date – mostly because I love a good monochrome look! This time, the skirt is paired with a gorgeous, slightly sheer lace sleeveless top, to be tucked in. As for accessories, I chose this awesome pair of metallic (and most importantly, manageable!) heels, and an edgy geometric silver bib necklace. How perfect would this outfit be for a nice dinner out on a breezy summer night?

What do you think?

These are just three ways to style this skirt – but there are millions more! What would you guys wear this with? Would you prefer one of the other colors? Which look was your favorite? Be sure to let me know – I love hearing all the feedback!

    The shirt is cute but way too short! It looks like it barely covers the model’s butt. I like the color though. I’m not a huge fan of the third outfit- I think it’s too much of the same color. The first outfit is cute for a casual day.

    ohmygoodness, these outfits are absolutely A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!!!!!!!!
    wowsers, um, I can’t really decide which outfit is my favorite out of all of them…but..I think i would have to pick the second picture-the one with just the plain white shirt.

    Thanks!!!!

    The first ensemble is the simplest and most effective. I don’t like both of the other tops. The 2nd one is two complicated & the third too bland.

    I like the necklace looks like a semi tribal very nice. With the skirt it’s okay but I want different colors other than that but I find it good.

    Great post! Those tasseled earrings look like a fun DIY project, too…

    The “earthy casual” is my favorite! Gorgeous and comfortable. It looks like a potential first day of school outfit to me!

    I love the Complimentary Colors outfit. :) Very cute.
    I probably would get the skirt if it was a bit longer, I don’t want to give the rest of the world a show!

    I really like this skirt. It looks so flowy, feminine, an elegant. I love forever 21 there is always great stuff there you can find for a great price. My favorite is the first outfit! Very cute and casual. Great for everyday! Thanks so much for sharing :)!

    I hate to agree, but yeah — I think it is a little bit on the “too short” side, but knowing how to style a skirt like this is a nice post.

    Also rocking the boat – I love the third and second outfits the most. The first is cute, but to me tees and skirts really have to tie together — like in the second outfit — a plain white tee with a pretty skirt like that just isn’t my cup of tea.

    I *want* the top in the third outfit!

    I loved that skirt so I tried it on a few days ago, and it’s so short that it’s almost vulgar. For everyone secure enough to wear something that short, it’s great, but I doubt the majority of girls would be comfortable in it.

    I also tried this skirt on a few days ago. The greenish/teal color is amazing; but I agree that it’s pretty short. If you have any hips at all, it also flares out a LOT over them :/ Too bad!

    Love the skirt! It looks great..in theory. I find that sometimes skirts like these are too poofy….how do you get around that? Again, very nice post! Xx

    I saw this skirt yesterday (before I saw the post) and I wanted to get the green and the magenta. Today I go back to F21 and THEY’RE OUT OF GREEN. I was like >:( but I just picked up the magenta skirt.

    If you’re willing to spend (a lot) more money, there’s a skirt from UO that this reminds me of. It’s called Sparkle & Fade Pleated Chiffon Miniskirt and it’s here: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?itemdescription=&itemCount=&startValue=&selectedProductColor=&sortby=&id=19797422&parentid=&sortProperties=&navCount=15&navAction=&color=040&pushId=&popId=&prepushId=&tabStyle=Reviews

    It’s longer and a slightly different green, but I prefer it. (except for the price.)

    You would need to have REALLY skinny legs to pull that off!
