I bought jeans from F21 online site. I washed the jeans just once, and the jeans gone hard like rocks!!! I wasn't even able to wear it at all because it's the jeans scratches my legs when I put them on and it's not wearable. And yes, it shrinks after I washed it. I didn't use hot water, just room temperature water cuz I was concerned it would shrinks. And, unfortunately, it shrinks even with room temperature water. I will never buy jeans from F21 anymore.
I have been shopping at Forever 21 (F21) since the beginning of highschool, so I'm a long time customer of the brand. The clothes and accessories sold at F21 are trendy and seasonal (you probably won't find the same item in store the next month!). However, it's not my favourite store for quality pieces.
F21 clothes have the tendency to be plastic and well, cheap. You get what you pay for! I found this to be reasonable 4 years ago, but now, the prices at F21 are rising and for the quality that you're getting, I cannot justify spending my money there anymore (unless there's a GREAT deal)!
If you're looking for accessories, beware. The paint of the jewellery begins to peel, fade, and turn colour after a few wears. The hats are trendy, but uncomfortable to wear (the knits are scratchy and the caps are hard plastic). If you're looking for makeup...stay away! The eyeshadows stained my eyelids and the lipstick came off in less than an hour. Not pleased! The nail polish isn't bad, but you could get better ones for the same price at the drugstore.
I probably sound terribly disappointed, and I truly am! 4 years ago, the quality was not that bad, and I still have pieces that have not fallen apart since then. However, pieces that I bough in DECEMBER have seams already torn and threads are spewing out everywhere!
Overall, although F21 is a "budget-friendly" store (honestly, it's getting kind of expensive), the price is too high to justify what you're getting. Sadly, I will only be shopping here if a major deal arises.
I dont have a forever 21 in the area BUT whenever I go to thrift shops this is one of the first brands I look for. I always find so much clothes from forever 21 in frenchys, these clothes are well made and I find dont fall apart, They're different patterns and colors than you'd find in average stores, sweet and unique clothes
J'aime beaucoup les boutiques Forever 21. Ils possèdent beaucoup de vêtements de différente couleur, grandeur et modèle. Difficile de ne pas trouver ce que vous chercher dans cette boutique. De plus, il y a même plusieurs accessoires que l'on peut ce procurer.
Love their stores !
So much merchandise in so many colors, sizes and styles
You can find a variety of items of all different monetary value
only downside is that the fitting rooms are ALWAYS full :(
I am always blown away by the amount of merchanise they have in store and have found myself slightly overwhelmed at times. Yes a great selection but its hard to find what you're looking for with so many racks of clothes. I enjoy my online experience much more.
I was so excited when my local Forever 21 store opened because I had purchased some great pieces at amazing prices at stores in other cities. I was surprised at how large the store was and am happy that there is so much selection!
On the other side, sometimes the large amount of clothing can be overwhelming - especially if you don't have a lot of time to find what you are looking for. I also find it can be extremly disorganized at times and the staff at my local store are not very friendly.
As for the quality of the clothing, it's super hit and miss. I have purchased denim that's lasted 2 years, while other items fall apart after only a few wears. You get what you pay for.
I have only been in an actual Forever 21 store once, it wasn't memorable. I use the online site often though. The products are always adorable and pretty decent in quality. The only thing is that I've noticed is that the prices have gone up by A LOT in the past year.
Je trouve souvent de beaux petits morceaux dans cette boutique. La marchandise est à petit prix en plus. Les vêtements sont de moyenne qualité,mais sa fonctionne bien.
I love Forever 21!! there are so many deals at this store. I unfortunately do not live close to one, but I shop online all the time- and they offer free shipping if you spend over a certain amount (which isn't hard to add up!)
