Fashion without the Fortune’s Guide to

November 3, 2015

Forever 21 is one of those stores that has a bad rap. I often hear that people say that they think the quality isn’t there, the clothes are too young, or that shopping the store is overwhelming.

And on one hand I can agree, shopping in a Forever 21 store can be overwhelming! I personally am not a huge fan of going into the store-I never seem to find much. But to be honest Forever 21 online is probably my favorite place to shop online. Yes, you read that right FAVORITE!


While I can stumble into a Forever 21 store and find nothing, I can peruse their website and load my cart up with 50 different pieces. There are so many different things to look at that I can sit there for farrrr too long going through all the different categories, accessories, sale items, etc.

Here are a few of my tips for shopping at Forever 21 online and a few of the pieces I currently have sitting in my cart anddd that I probably will end up buying after I post this.

  1. Sign up for email

I know signing up for email notifications can be really annoying. I have a separate Gmail account for all of the store and brand related emails I get so they don’t crowd up my regular email. But for Forever 21 I highly suggest it! They regularly send coupon codes, early sale alerts, and free shipping which are all helpful when trying to save money.

  1. Read reviews

I am a huge proponent for reading reviews when I order online from anyyy store, but I am even more for it when it comes to Forever 21. The reviews are super helpful when concerned about fit or material, and give you a better picture of what to expect when the piece comes in the mail. I mean obviously you need to take reviews with a grain of salt, but they can be very helpful! I have been there when an item has no reviews and  you have to make the decision to take the plunge and buy it or wait. You can return items to a store and receive store credit or send them back for a refund!

  1. If you really want it BUY IT!

Forever 21 is definitely the store where popular items sell out quickly. They are pretty good about restocking and notifying you when an item has been restocked, but if you really love a piece buy it now! Because before you know it will be gone and you will be sad. Trust me, I’ve been there.

As the holidays are quickly approaching, here are some of my picks!

I really feel like Forever 21 has stepped their game up when it comes to quality and you don’t have to pay a lot for it. Their extra 50% off sale item events can be a STEAL too. So if you are not a huge fan of the store, give their website a try and let us know what you think!

WARNING: Do not go on there when you have important things you shouldddd be doing- it will suck you in!
