Black and White: Cutout Sweater & Lace Paneled Skirt

I wandered into Forever 21, several weeks ago, casually browsing for a cream skirt. I was interested in one that could complement and balance my petite frame when paired with some of my knits and longer tops. This one immediately caught my eyes mainly for its dainty lace pattern, unique lace panel, and frayed scallop hemline. To seal the deal, I found an XS (which F21 only carries in selected items)!
Sweater: Bisou Bisou
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Target
Purse: Forever 21
Sunglasses: gifted

I kept the outfit simple in black and white -one of the hottest trends for this summer! The bold details from each piece (cutout sweater, lace skirt, strappy heels, woven chain-link purse) combined to exude a chic feminine street style : ).


  1. What shoe size are you? I find it really difficult to find a pair of heels from Target that can fit me well.

    1. Hi Mel! My true shoes size is 5.5 (what I'm wearing in the pics), but can also fit 5 or 6 depending on the shoes type/manufacturer. What shoes size do you wear? I know that Target offers women size 5 (smallest size) online, but not sure if they do in store.

  2. pretty skirt! It looks super short on the model but I like it longer better :)

    I've always wondered about size XS at forever 21 because I rarely see them. I always just thought they sold out really quickly haha.

    1. Thanks Tiffany! Short skirts on models tend be a good indicator of "decent length fit" for us petite girls :). And I agree, F21 should offer a wider selection in XS!
