What to Buy Fall 2007: Wet Seal

For many of us, Wet Seal is much like Forever 21—great in budget theory, but in practice? Pick your problem: too young, too trendy, sketchy quality.

Still, if you know what to look for, it can make sense to pick up a piece or two—just forget buying workwear or adding wardrobe staples here. Instead, think of grabbing The Color of the season, inexpensive layering pieces, or a fun weekend-worthy trend you just know will be gone by spring.

We’ve gone ahead and perused the offerings at Wet Seal, and picked our favorites to save you some time.


A layering piece in a modern silouette and bold fall hue. And only $8.50. Seriously.

Very sexy, very trendy quilted patent pumps. $26.50.
