Unforgettable in Every Way

The site description suggests that you “be unforgettable” in this sweater. Which, yes, unforgettable is a pretty accurate descriptor.

Because if you wore this, and someone were asked to describe you later, they probably wouldn’t be able to remember what you looked like, but they’d sure as hell remember the giant ruffle running down the middle of your shirt, topped with a big bow. It’s like a little fabric spine on your chest.

It’s too bad, really. The banding with the red and white is kind of cute. If you took the extra fabric off, you would be left with a pretty cute tunic sweater. It might have been a little more forgettable than this number, but it’d be far more wearable.

Forever 21 Color Block Sweater - $26


  1. I think the part that bothers me is that the ruffle is like a little runway, leading either directly to or directly away from your crotch.

    It just...draws the eye.

  2. That hadn't even occurred to me, but now all I can see is a tiny plane taxiing down the runway.
