Sadly, the Forever 21 era has come to an end. Forever 21 is closing all its shopping stores in Japan and worldwide. The fashion brand has recently filed for bankruptcy and is expected to close all 14 stores in Japan by the end of October 2019. One of the most popular Forever 21 stores in Japan is located in Shibuya,Tokyo. Forever 21 Shibuya opened in 2010 and is also the biggest Forever 21 store in all of Asia.

According to Vox, one reason for the downfall of the brand could be the stronger social media strategies of its competitors, which rely heavily on influencer campaigns. Moreover, 2019 has been a rough year for Forever 21, as Ariana Grande has filed a lawsuit against Forever 21 for using a look-alike model for its campaigns without the singer’s consent. 

Since Forever 21 is closing down, I will definitely miss it, especially while shopping on a budget. 

As a tribute, here are my absolute favourite Forever 21 items: 

  • Black and Gold Sheer Shirt

This is a vintage Forever 21 piece that I absolutely adore! The shirt is semi-transparent, with a beautiful gold chain pattern. This item is extremely versatile. This Forever 21 shirt can be worn with a pair of jeans, for a casual look. It also goes well with a pair of black trousers, for a formal look. 

In the pictures below, I went for a casual relaxed look, where I combined the sheer shirt with a pair of high waisted mom jeans. The portrait credits go to Gabriel (check his work here).

  • High Neck Sheer Lace Top

This is also a vintage Forever 21 item that I love. Whenever I put it on, I feel sexy and confident. Whenever I wear this lace top, I go for a full, black outfit. The portrait credits go to Shun (check his work here).
