What YOU Should Be Buying at Forever 21 RIGHT NOW

The thing about Forever 21 is that Forever 21 is amazing. Fully. Except you have to dig, and sometimes after looking at rack upon rack of truly horrendous crap, your eyes start to glaze over and you completely miss the hidden gems.

But fear not, good shopper! For I am here to guide you. Consider me your personal Forever 21 sherpa. I know all the best tips.

Shall we then?

  • Tribal Pattern Bomber Jacket 1 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.52-PM1

    I've been seeing a lot of bomber jackets so far, as well as its cousin, the Member's Only jacket. I like a bomber with a bit of a twist, which usually come by way of leather sleeves, but this one's fun too.

  • Favorite Scoop Neck Tank 2 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.58-PM1

    As far as basics go, you really can't go wrong at Forever 21. This basic tank is really lovely, a great oversized drape, straps are just the right width, and not to mention that those jeans are particularly amazing.

  • Must Have Wool Boater 5 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.44-PM1

    Number one, wool hats are IT this time of year. Number two, boater hats are the new fedora. You just wait. And I for one am relieved, because I am so sick of fedoras.

  • Forever Cool Bomber Jacket 6 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.21-PM1

    Forever 21 nails the moto jacket look time and time again, and a bonus for us small-boned types, their small sizes will actually fit us!

  • Cozy Cat Knit Beanie 7 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.49-PM1

    Wear it to Fashion Week, get your photo taken. I kid. But also, it's true.

  • Sleek Faux Suede Booties 8 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.33-PM2

    These are a literal and exact replica of a very sexy pair of booties sold at Rag & Bone right now. Now, Rag & Bone happens to be my personal favorite, but who has $500 to shell out for booties? Heartbreakingly, I sure don't. But, I mean, these aren't even forty bucks, so . . .

  • Cool Cat Flats 9 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.33-PM1

    Ironic cat loving in fashion isn't going anywhere. Neither are slip-ons that most resemble house slippers. These are so understated, too. Really, really well done.

  • Moto Babe Faux Leather Jacket 10 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.38-PM1

  • All Day Chelsea Wedge Boots 11 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.28-PM1

    This is one of those finds that is going to haunt you the rest of your life if you don't snatch them up. They are so forward thinking, so minimal, such great lines, THE perfect color . . . Literally, I can't believe I am seeing these shoes with my own two eyes they are that amazing.

  • Striped Chevron Cardigan 12 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.27-PM1

    I like my cardigans on the HUGE side. I also like to wear them in the mornings over my PJs when I'm puttering around making breakfast, and then later when I'm out running errands. Just swap ya leggings out for pants. Or not! This is America!

  • Standout Buckle Booties 13 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.40-PM1

    Can we just talk about these? Because hoooooolyyyyy heeellllll.

  • Favorite Boyfriend Cardigan 14 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.16.45-PM1

    Slouchy oversized cardigans are key for this fall. Wear them loose and baggy and hideously oversized, with a good crop of bed head, and of course Birkenstocks. I know, aren't these trends right now sort of hysterical? And WONDERFUL? This will be the comfiest you've ever been while dressing right on the money.

  • Tribal Knit Sweatpants 15 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.17.55-PM1

    I don't know which is better, the rad print? Or the fact that they're sweatpants?

  • Fuzzy Marled Sweater 16 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.00-PM1

    Fuzzy sweaters are enjoying their comeback right now and, for reals, can you think of anything more insanely comfortable?

  • White Noise Baseball Hat 17 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.12-PM1

    The way to wear baseball caps right now is exactly like this. Grown up, team free, color-blocked, and textured.

  • Worldly Beaded Sweatshirt 18 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.06-PM1

    This is the kind of thing I would expect to pay eighty bucks for at Zara.

  • Street Chic Moto Vest 19 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.23-PM1

    I'm still kicking around my feelings on vests for this season (short girl problems, you understand), but I do know that if you've already come around to a testimony of the vest this seasons, then this one is daaaaang good.

  • Street Chic Moto Jacket 20 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.17-PM1

    This one comes in a lot of really great colors, and if you have a hard time deciding, don't worry! It's twenty-five bucks!

  • Essential Chambray Shirt 21 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.28-PM1

    Kind of the marriage of an oxford and a chambray. The pockets! Divine.

  • Standout Arrow Pullover 22 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.40-PM1

    I like the graphic nature of this sweater, especially that it doesn't seem to be about anything. If your sweater is going to have something on it, please don't let it be any variation of "Love, Laugh, Eat Cheese," or however that saying goes.

  • Distressed Acid Washed Denim Jacket 23 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.34-PM1

    I just want to point out that wearing this a size too large is the point, and also Kelly Kapowski would do it, and thus so should you. (I am really, REALLY enjoying this early-nineties resurgence. Like, paging Party of Five!)

  • Desert Cool Parka 24 of 24
    Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-3.18.46-PM1

    This parka isn't messing around. And if you're wondering when is the appropriate time to wear this 3/4 sleeve jacket, it's NOW. Add a long sleeve tee when it's chillier. Put it away in December. Okay then.
