Forever 21 Ruffle Front Knit Top, in Real Life


I recently ordered a few J.Crew look-a-like items from Forever 21. First, the Ruffle front knit top in burgundy.


This is a pricier F21 tee but it's well made and the material is a soft cotton-spandex blend that didn't stretch out of shape after a day of wear. I'm wearing an XS. The style on this top is similar to J.Crew's Tissue ribbed ruffle henley. Personally, I like F21's version better. The ruffles are smaller and the covered buttons and pin tucks give this top a more refined look. Also, the neckline isn`t as low-cut as J.Crew's version.


Here's the top layered under F21's Ribbed Pin Cardigan, another keeper that from F21. The cardigan is sold out online now.

My next post is Forever 21's Leopard 3/4 length sleeve cardigan, an alternative to J.Crew's sold-out Merino Ocelot cardigan.
