SheFinds Guilty Pleasure: Forever 21

Remember when Forever 21 was a crappy clothing phenomenon exclusive to the suburban mall, like Gadzooks or Wet Seal? Well, I do. And that's why my newfound love for the store qualifies as a particularly embarassing guilty pleasure. But Forever 21 has changed since its years as a third-rate H&M for tweens. These days the clothing is still cheap, yes–which some (though not me) would consider a negative–but it's also become really quite stylish! On Friday I wore a Forever 21 garment to work (as a tunic over jeans) and then out on a date (without the pants, as a short dress). I got so many compliments–from my boss, my date, and my coworkers–that I've decided to shed my guilt and share my secret.

I love the woven silk pattern of this Armarie Lace Blouse ($24.80) in grey. Details like the decorative trim along the waist and matching waist tie (not seen) give this top an awfully chic look–and no one needs to see the pricetag.

The metallic embroidery on this Anna Floral Dress ($22.80) gives it a Mexican flair, as well as a flattering hint of shape beneath. Cinch it with a belt for a cleaner look, or let it flow free to embrace your inner flower child.

This edgy Wrap Tunic ($29) is indicative of Forever 21's changing image as a fashionable company. There's nothing cheap about the clean lines and soft wool of this tunic. The leather waistband buckle trim is faux–but at $29, do you really mind? The store is full of good-looking garments for both casual and semi-formal occasions. And with such absurdly low prices, a shopping spree at Forever 21 will fill your closet without breaking the bank.
