Back in the day, when I first starting showing an interest in fashion, I turned to the place every other 7th grader did at the time: Wet Seal. In fact, my first purchase was such a big deal that I even coordinated the rubber bands on my braces to match my lavender skin-tight pants. Woopsies. Luckily, I’ve come quite a way since then, and after checking out Wet Seal’s website recently, I realized the store has made some impressive changes of its own.
Floral sheer Peasant Dress, $29.50. How fabulous would this bohemian-inspired dress look over some opaque tights and combat boots?
3 Row Chain Leather Necklace, $9.00. I love the different textures and lengths at work that would dress up a white t-shirt instantly.
Ruffle Cap Sleeve Top, $24.50. This smokey gray chiffon would be the perfectly complement to a pair of skinny jeans and heels.
Smocked Waist Poplin Skirt, $22.50. The wide waistband, tulle trim and subtle ruching pretty much check off all of my must-haves in a skirt.
Patent Trim Stretch Belt, $12.50. Since I’ve gotten so many questions regarding this belt I got at Express several years back, I figured I’d post this ridiculously similar version (for a third of the price).
Ruffle Plaid Mesh Bra Set, $14.50. I can’t help but imagine wearing this under layers of cozy knitwear and still feeling sexy.
Oversized Plaid Top, $22.50. This has all the appeal of a boyfriend’s shirt, but with a flattering boat neckline and an elastic banded waist so you still look like a girl.
Wood Bottom Ankle Bootie, $26.50. The wood bottom and rounded toe have such an organic feel, but the 4 1/2 inch heel keeps them from looking too conservative.
