The heat is on, which means a whole new fashion season is upon us once again. As always, even if cuts and silhouettes may change from one summer to another, you can be sure that relaxed and loose clothing, lots of whites, and of course the iconic denim will always be in style in the scorching months.
American brand Forever 21 gives The Manila Times today the season’s pegs for timeless summer essentials, featuring a photo shoot with international runway stars Cayley King, Courtney Eaton, Jonathan Bellini, and Marloes Horst as photographer by L.A.-based fashion photographer Zoey Grossman and styled by up-and-coming stylist and blogger Ashley Glorioso.
The brand’s latest collection is all about pairing basic staple pieces with statement denim and accessories. Enjoy denim in all forms – flared jeans, high-waist shorts inspired by the ‘70s, pencil skirts, and jackets all in denim. It’s a little sexy, a little preppy, a little grunge, with a spoonful retro.
Women’s fashion means doubling up, pairing basic pieces with statement colored denim in cream, blue, gold, khaki, olive, red, and tomato hues for an ever-so cool model “off-duty” look. The collection features fade wash denim shirts teamed up with high-rise dark blue jeans, on-trend denim A-line zip up skirts, micro-shorts, and jeans that pay tribute to denim eras from ‘70s flare to ‘90s mom.
For men, the ‘90s distressed and grungy denim has made a comeback and is celebrated as a piece to add an unexpected twist on an otherwise polished look. The collection features ripped, frayed, and patchwork shorts and jeans in an array of washes and styles including slim-fit, skinny, and drawstring joggers.
