Forever 21 has dedicated a portion of its website to a new mini-line of athletic-inspired basics called 8 TEE 4. As I flipped through the 8TEE4 lookbook, I couldn't help but wonder if this line of cotton and spandex basics—such as tees, mini-skirts and burn-out tanks—modeled in a mildly provocative way might be Forever 21's response to the growing popularity of retailers like American Apparel. It could just signal the fact that the young fashion crowd loves their basics—they're cheap, comfy, cute and can be styled in an infinite number of ways. Hotpants, oversized sweatshirts and neon brights also tie in well with all the retro-love going on in fashion right now.
At any rate, those are just some of my casual observations, check out the complete 8TEE4 collection for yourself here.
