When it comes to finding stylish and affordable activewear, I feel like Forever 21 gets a bashing from the top place. Let me tell you something, you are missing out if you aren’t having a nose at Forever 21’s activewear! The worldwide retailer for the latest trends matched with an low-cost price tag, have slayed the sportswear game this summer. I’m talking tropical pastels, flattering shorts, cute details and so much more that can help with fitness motivation. Looking to update your gymwear without breaking the bank? Here’s my Forever 21 activewear favourites.
Who else finds wearing shorts to the gym daunting? Throwback to P.E and cycling shorts (shudder). Moving forward, there’s absolutely no reason why we, of all shapes and sizes, shouldn’t be rocking shorts if we want to. Plus, showing off your legs is not only a massive confidence boost but you’ll catch a tan too. Winning! These grey, chalky shorts are a must when it comes to updating your summer activewear. What I love about these shorts is it’s minimalistic style. Simple yet effective, it’s tone can work with a vast colour palette so it’s up to you to build your own block colours or patterns. Get creative with it!
Active Stretch Set
I am obsessed with tropical pastels. Anything baby pink, green, cream or yellow I am having it. That’s why I had to catch my breath when I saw this gorgeous set from Forever 21. I fell in love with the colour straight away but was doubting the fit of the leggings. Wait for it… the judgmental devil on my shoulder was thankfully proven wrong because these leggings are beyond comfortable. Pair them with the bra and you’ve got yourself a summer vibe to your workouts.
£16.00 – Leggings £14.00 – Sports bra
Low Impact Sports bra
This sports bra screams beach, sand and holidays. The ribbed design isn’t something you see everywhere but looks exquisite on and adds a touch of style to your gym outfit. Forever21 is forever proving that you can look on trend whilst working out. It is low support so if you are after a bra for low impact workouts like walking, yoga, pilates, running errands, then this gem is optimal for you.
Can you tell that Forever21 are headlining the tropical pastels? This gorgeous fleece, featuring a drawstring hood, dropped shoulders, and long sleeves, is perfect for throwing on before or after your workout and evening strolls. The fleece comes in three shades, aligned with the spring-to-summer theme, and has a slightly cropped fit but not too noticeable. What I love is that if you prefer oversized jumpers you can wear this fleece in a bigger size and it will still look effortlessly chic. Oversized or not, couple this fleece with the matching active stretch leggings and you are ready to seize the day.
Simple pieces can help to create a statement look. This black woven athletic backpack is a great example. It’s mesh-paneled details and rectangle design makes it a stylish companion to any gym outfit. Fill it with your fitness necessities and you’ve got yourself a fashionable accessorise to keep you on track working towards your goals whilst looking fabulously fit.
