to shop / forever 21 pick: essential zipped ankle pants

I recently placed a huge Forever 21 order. I’m too lazy to go to the store and I like the convenience of getting a cash refund when I mail back my return. I’d been scouring F21 for good black pants. I ordered a ton and these were the cheapest and my favorite! I had to share.

Images from Forever 21.

The Essential Zipped Ankle Pants don’t look or sound like much, but they are ponte legging pants. Ignore the “lightweight” in the description, because they are not lightweight. They cover flaws, are stretchy, aren’t see-through, suck you in, and are flattering. There is one zipper closure at the top of the bum and at the sides of the ankles. They are similar to J.Crew’s pixie pants, except the fabric for the pixie pants is a tad bit dressier and I think this zipper is less likely to slide down, but compare $14.80 to $98! And since I’m short, these are the perfect length for me!

This is why I love retailers who have feedback systems on their website. I wouldn’t have looked at these had they not been so highly reviewed.

If you’re looking for items to get you over the free shipping threshold, visit my Pinterest page for Forever 21. I also liked the Chanel-esque Clear Strap Colorblocked Sandals (haven’t been personally tested yet – need to reorder a size down to TTS) and some of the sunglasses. These Spiked Faux Leather Flats also intrigue me because they are the splitting image of the McQ for Alexander McQueen ballet flats I mentioned here. I typically am not into faux leather shoes…
