Whether or not you went “back to school” this fall, preppy fall fashion with a hint of “off to hit the books” appeal will always hold a place in this industry’s hearts. Maybe it’s an easy way to relive the scholastic days without actually having to deal with the stress of pop quizzes and report cards, or maybe looking smart just never gets old. Either way, the Mango Pre-Fall 2011 lookbook leaves models Kasia Struss & Emma Xie all set to step on campus with medium-wash cropped jean trousers, cable knit, plaids, khakis, and noninvasive floral prints. We love the ruffle-sleeve denim one peice and cuffed shorts. These are easy answers to the classic question: What do I wear today so that cute guy in lecture will look at me?

Divine Rights of Denim for Forever 21 was sent to us from heaven to earth. The LA-based women’s contemporary line has joined forces (exclusively) with Forever 21 to provide its customers with premium product at affordable prices just in time for the holiday shopping season. Divine Rights of Denim’s entrance into Forever 21 marks the first time a branded line will be sold at the retailer.
Divine Rights of Denim’s initial collection features trend-driven styles in an array of colors and washes available in three fits – skinny, straight and the increasingly popular ‘jegging’. However, within the next few months they will be adding denim dresses, vests, and floral prints- you just have to hurry up and get it. If you’re lucky enough you will score yourself an affordable and amazing denim outfit for New Years Eve. Items that previously ranged in retail for $70-$100, will now all be under $30- Thank God!
The collection is available at most of their retail locations or online at www.forever21.com
