I remember spotting this chevron asymmetrical top a few years ago at Forever 21 and debating if it would look good on. It was a very rare, extremely quick shopping trip where I had no time to try anything on which I literally almost never do…I’m all about trying things on! Some things looks not so great on the hanger and then great on you and vice versa. So trying on for me is a must!
I took a chance and purchased the top without trying it on in the store and am so happy I did because it’s very different, comfy, fun and one of my favorite pieces in my closet! Plus, the price point of 20 something dollars didn’t hurt either ;). I love the bold chevron print, the slits on the sides and the high-low cut. To add some shape I like styling it with a skinny belt under my chest on my upper waist to add some definition (otherwise it’s quite tunic-y) and pairing it with a leather jacket for a cool, edgier feel. With a long cardigan it also looks really cute and when it’s warm enough I don’t even have to wear anything over it!
My shopping advice: Always try things on when out shopping but if you really don’t have 5 minutes to spare then trust your gut when in doubt. Also, make sure the store has a good return policy and you’re golden!
