What to Buy Fall 2008: Wet Seal

Wet Seal—can’t we do something about that name? Okay, at least it tells us one thing—we don’t need to take the fashion we find here too seriously. It’s trendy, yes, but that’s the fun of it—pick up trend-of-the-minute pieces (this season, that means sweater dresses, shiny tops, and plaid and houndstooth) on the cheap, meaning a guilt-free fashion indulgence. Our picks for this fall:




Plaid Mary Jane Low Heel, $22.50
3/4 Sleeve Pencil Dress, $25.50
Cap Sleeve Knit Dress, $19.50
Houndstooth Pencil Skirt, $24.50
Satin Waist Belt Top, $18.50
Distressed Bomber Jacket, $39.50
