How to Shop Your Favorite Fast-Fashion Stores Like a Pro

Stores like H&M, Forever 21 and Topshop are about as easy to slip in and out of as a Louis Vuitton latex dress. Our top tips for making your shopping trip worthwhile.

Forever 21

Tip #1: Just for the 21-and-under set? Not even. F21 also offers inexpensive cotton basics and affordable trendy denim.

Tip #2: It's the extras that count. This store's costume jewelry is always on-trend and can easily be mistaken for designer gems.

Tip #3: When in doubt, buy it in black. With dark-colored pieces, imperfect stitching and non-couture cuts can be easily masked. Your purchases will look far more luxe than they are—and they'll seem less obviously trendy, too.
