Hey, we're not going to judge you for being 30-something and still shopping at Forever 21 (hence the name, right?), but every gal has to grow her wardrobe beyond $7 tanks at some point. If you need a little inspiration to dress your age (stylishly!) while keeping your bank account in check, then you have to make a trip to Chicago's new LOFT store on the Mag Mile.
The gorgeous, two-story space (including an entire floor dedicated to petites) is currently stocked with everything you need to curate the perfect summer wardrobe: tank dresses, rompers (like this Cheap Thrill!), pleated shorts, evening jumpsuits, and accessories to complete your look. And yes, you can still pull off bold pops of color, tribal prints, and sequined stripes like the youngsters.
Need proof that you can still look like a hot babe while being age appropriate? LOFT recently named some of the city's most fashionable Chicagoans as its brand ambassadors, including DJ Megan Taylor, Sam Saifer-Berngard from SPLASH, Cheeky Chicago gals Erica Bethe Levin and Jessica Zweig, and Cat De Orio. Also on the list, Liz Schneider, the stylish gal behind the blog Sequins and Stripes (and R29 guest blogger!). Schneider created a LOFT GIRL's Guide to Chicago on the brand's Pinterest board. Check it out here and click through to peep snaps of the new store!
LOFT, 664 North Michigan Avenue (between Huron and Erie streets); 312-915-0410.
