It's a sad day for faux fur coats (opens in new tab)clustered charm necklaces (opens in new tab), and cutesy graphic tees (opens in new tab) everywhere: Wet Seal is closing all of its stores.

The beloved company delivered the blow to its employees last week in a letter, which stated that all stores would be shuttering and all employees would be losing their jobs, according to the Wall Street Journal (opens in new tab).

The closing process, which will be devastating on your wardrobe, has apparently been in the works since 2015, when the brand filed for bankruptcy and closed down over 300 stores, Business Insider (opens in new tab) reports.

It's unclear as of now whether the website will also be metaphorically closing its doors, but Seventeen.com has reached out to Wet Seal's reps to find out. This post will be updated when we hear back.
