Splurge vs. Save: Tie-Dye Shorts

tie dye shorts

I love the faded adire pattern at J. Crew. I think this t-shirt especially is so cute for layering and casual lounging around. However, the problem I constantly face with J. Crew is that if you love something, chances are a million other people do too, and you're going to wind up matching everyone and their mother the minute you step out your door to go somewhere.

Tie-dye has been trending recently and I was wandering through Forever 21 the other day (guilty pleasure...) when I passed these shorts. I honestly think they're so funny and cute. Like, they're not something I would expect to pick out for myself, but they're cute, I think! I'm imagining them styled with Jack's and flowy tee's or tanks during the summer.

So... Splurge with the J. Crew pair, $60, or score a fabulous deal with these Forever 21 shorts, $12.


  1. Honestly I kind of like the forever 21 pattern better...just wish they were a tad longer

  2. I like the forever 21 one pair better for some reason. I feel like since it's a trendier piece in general, why splurge?

  3. What a great way to describe the j.crew dilemma - literally everyone has it. Great comparison post!

  4. I much prefer the forever 21 pair, so much cuter in my humble opinion :)

  5. I always love J. Crew, but when there are such cute alternatives for much cheaper, how can you say no?!
