When Shakespeare said, “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves” he actually meant to say, “wear stars“. Like, you know, on your shirt, collar and sweatshirt. Essentially it’s about wearing your destiny, and as an avid Shakespeare reader how could I not heed The Bard’s advice? Stars had a big moment back in 2008 (YSL, Chanel et al. got celestial). But that was then, this is now. And ‘now’ is all about a great crewneck. They’re easy. They’re classic. They also look great with anything, on anyone. So it’s pretty clear the basic crewneck should be a staple in every wardrobe. What’s more this Fall will be all about the crewneck sweatshirt. Only a print-heavy version. Let’s call it ‘the crewneck 2.0’.
Here’s the real point; thank god for Forever 21. Accessible and on-trend, their star print crewneck and short-sleeved shirt mean serious intergalactic fun. Paired together they become a force to be reckoned with. It goes without saying they will both be a huge part of my Fall essentials. It’s that simple. Beam me up Scotty.
