I ordered this Forever 21 dress thinking it would be a cheaper alternative to my beloved James Perse dress. As it turns out (with most things at Forever 21 these days) it was way to short for my comfort. Rather than sending it back, I styled it as a ruched top with my favorite wide-leg pants.
I love the look of the tighter top with the wide pant to balance the look, coupled with my newly rediscovered favorite wedges. The outfit feels slightly seductive yet fully covered.
