Watch your back, Forever 21: After opening more than 400 locations throughout the country, this budget-friendly women’s clothing ($10–$30) and accessories ($5–$32) chain has finally made its New York debut. Outfitted with touches of pink and gray, the 5,000-square-foot space boasts large fitting rooms and a well-lit runway in the center of the store where customers can strut their stuff. You’ll want to hit the catwalk modeling dolman-sleeve Aztec-print maxidresses ($24), knit ponchos ($22) and knee-high motorcycle-style boots ($28). We especially love that all styles come in plus-sizes (up to size 24).
