Every now and then I’ll stumble across an item of clothing that is a game changer. I can wear it lots of different ways, and no matter how I style it, I always feel fierce. These gold shorts from Forever 21 have been with me for years and I’ve worn them almost like a staple whenever I’m going for maximum impact with the least amount of effort. I’ve worn them to a Nylon magazine issue release party and to a gallery opening hosted by Jeremy Renner (yes he’s super cute in person), to name just two. They are really comfortable, and the high waist makes them more interesting and modern than if they sat even just a little lower. Here I’ve paired them with a basic black tank from A/X Armani Exchange, a military jacket and a caged ankle boot from Dolce Vita. Somehow they always just work. Or werq. Depending on who you ask. The sparkle? Well, that just speaks for itself.
