We've already discussed how shopping at Forever21 is radically different in your 30s versus your teens and early 20s -- the music is so loud, the jewelry is falling apart on the shelves and the clothes, well, they look cheap. But that is no reason to boycott the store altogether -- after all, the fast-fashion retailer has a few gems, if you're willing to really spend the time looking. And if you're not, we're here to do it for you. (Or rather, a few stylish Instagrammers have done it for you).
We trolled Instagram to find fashionable ladies who are making Forever21 look anything but cheap. These women have styled these Forever21 pieces to perfection and have us running out to our nearest store to pick up these trendy pieces. Behold, eight times Forever21 looked expensive as hell.
