Maybe there was a topic already on this but just want to know.
what do you love about F21? What do you hate about it?
Any tips, suggestions, etc when shopping there?
I’d like to hear some people’s opinions about that store.
thanksss :))

forever 21 is great or cheap fashion finds. A good example would be if you wanted to buy a military jacket, but not full price, there you go.
Yes the quality is pretty bad, but it’s not like they’re making you pay a lot.
For tips I would not buy anything over $25 or even less. If you know it’s going to fall apart, don’t pay a lot for it!

most things are very cheap, yet pretty. i just think that some items are usually too showy. i buy a lot of their accessories, and the XS or S sizes, if not, too much chest shows.

I love how it’s affordable and generally fits well.

The thing I don’t like about F21 is the quality. Certain clothes I’m scared to wash because I think they’ll fall apart.

Isn’t it like the American Primark? I’ve found some adorable things on the website, but I wish they had a shop in the UK, they were some gorgeous grey pumps on there about a month ago.

They have (what feels like) a million different vibes, from girly to punky. They pick up on trends pretty quickly which is nice for college kids like me who can’t afford the real deal just yet. You can get 2 full outfits at F21 for $100 or less, easily. The merch doesn’t always last but by the time it breaks I’m ready for something new, anyway!

The stores are overwhelming, however. A good trip takes around 3 hours. The organization is very scattered, and it’s tough to go in looking for something specific.

i feel as if forever 21 isn’t as cheap as it used to be. just because a lot of their stuff isn’t on sale anymore, or the stuff that is on sale is from centuries ago. so while you’re paying 25 dollars for a really cute and trendy dress, you could find one on sale at urban outfitters for 15-20 and if you’re lucky, $10. idk, that’s just how i feel.

I felt horribly out of place when I went there. Since I was a little disheveled and having a bad hair static day, other shoppers were looking at me disapprovingly and the employee who gave me a dressing room was looking at me strangely and with a forced smile. The clothes were cute, but I don’t think I can stomach that again.

Well, i love it because it’s cheap. I hate the cheap quality that some of their clothes have. & their jeans are quite unflattering. They tend to make your legs bigger and shorter.
What you pay for is what you get.

Ohhh the forever 21! Such a great yet dangerous place to work! The plus about working there though, is i know what is good quality and what isnt. Just a little tip to you shoppers who go to your store and there is none of your size, or the store does not have any more of this or that left. We do not have anything in back stock. Once boxes come, they are put out on the floor, and thats that when it sells out. There are some items that we get twice, or often(leggings, basics ect). Its hard on the employees who sit there and get yelled at because someone wants THIS dress and were all out and there convinced we have some more somewhere else. AhhhhH! hahaha.

To the girl talking about the jeans. My experience with them, any of our denim that ends in .50 (which is a promo item) does not look flattering on me. All other full priced denim i am in LOVE with! Our Love 21 and Heritage denim is great. I would recommend!

I work in a 40,000 sq ft store, and just so you all know, it is SO hard to keep that organized with the way customers shop! SO just think about that the next time you shop there, we all try our VERY best to keep it clean!

Another thing to suggest, our $4.50 leggings are a steal! They are so comfortable and work with anything! As well as our solid color cotton pencil skirts that are $5.50 $6.50 or $7.50 !!! Both of those we get in stores often and they are something EVERYONE should own!!!

Another tip – Read the label about what it is made out of and how to wash it before you toss it in the washer!!! trust me

in regards to lancagregi- We have different positions, and cashiers is one of them. Often times someone who IS NOT a cashier is behind the register. Not everyone is trained on the register, and we do have things behind the register to get even though were not cashiers. but come to my store! we are all friendly and love to help :)

Another tip – For a peaceful forever 21 experience, come during the week days, the weekends ARE crazy. Trust me, coming from a girl who was in the fitting room sorting clothes by room for 2 years.

Also- If you want to know if we have a certain item you saw online, write down the Product Code online and come into the store or call with the code!

Now that your all super educated on forever 21…… anyone have questions??? hahahha.

Favorite storeeee!!

LOVE F21 I work at Heritage 1981 and love bothhh!
Instead of buying a shirt from UO for $50 bucks you can get an exact look a like for half that!!! Such a great store especially for a broke college student like me.

I freak out whenever I visit the website, so many cute and cheap things! But when I go to an actual store, it’s always so overpicked and I always seem to leave disappointed haha

Yes affordable, but their sizes are out by a long shot. A size 12 that most normal people are is in the plus size and dare your chest size be too big youre even further into the plus size. Size 12 is not fat.

It is destroying our earth by making cheap clothes that don’t last. Not to mention that they often knock off designers. You can go to Goodwill and find amazing items and better quality vintage items that are unique and different…. it is also way better for the environment!
