We love both H&M and Forever 21 for offering affordable, stylish fashions to us budgetistas!
H&Ms are coming to malls across the country, moving in surprisingly right next to Forever 21s.
So which one offers the best deals and best finds?
H&M coat, $24.95; sweater, $34.95; skirt, $34.95
Work Clothes: H&M wins
H&M: Walk into H&M, and you'll find a huge selection of stylish professional business attire from cotton button-down shirts to cardigans to dresses to jackets from $24.95. You can find work outfits in no time!
F21: Forever 21 carries cardigans for $15.80--and sometimes half that price! It might take some time, though, to assemble an entire appropriate outfit for work. The skirts are a bit too short, the tops a bit too sexy.
Club Clothes: Both have awesome finds!
Sequins, animal prints, colorful skinnies, statement necklaces and bibs--both H&M and Forever 21 have unique, hot clothes for going out!
Best men's clothes: ? (which one gets your vote?) Our expert men's fashion blog The White List gives praise to H&M: "I'm a big fan of H&M because they have affordable and sometimes edgy pieces. It's definitely a place I go to for staples though (the edgy pieces are always an unexpected surprise)."
Best online shopping: Forever 21 (only F21 offers online shopping)
Best maternity clothes: H&M (only H&M carries maternity clothes)
Best plus sizes: Forever 21 (only F21 carries plus sizes)
Best kids' clothes: H&M (only H&M carries kids' clothes)
Best lingerie and sleepwear: ? (which one gets your vote?)
Best music: Forever 21 (The music is too loud at H&M. Ever try to call someone while you're in there? I found my favorite song at F21: "Free" by Natalia Kills Ft. Will.I.Am)
Best Overall: Forever 21 wins.
We still love Forever 21 for its low prices, basics, and unique finds.
But we're only too happy to have H&M around now to fill out our professional wardrobe and try out the latest, hot look from Europe!
