Forever 21 Activewear

This past weekend I was shopping in Forever 21 when I saw these shorts:

I thought, “Oh these are actually cute, and feel comfortable…and only 15 bucks!” In the past, I have looked through their workout clothes but not really been impressed. I left the store and thought nothing of it.

Then, the next day my sister and I went back to another mall, and were in Forever 21 again. I was curious about their activewear so I went to that section. I found a ton of items that I loved and all were in the $10-$20 range! A lot of you liked my T.J. Maxx Activewear post, so I figured why not cover my Forever 21 finds too? If I didn’t know Forever 21 had gym clothes, then others might not…plus who doesn’t love a good bargain?

So after doing a little online shopping, here are my favorite finds.

*This post has been edited since the original. Some of the items have sold out so I went and tried to find similar items. 


Seamless Performance Leggings – $10.80


Side Pocket Skinny Workout Shorts – $12.80

They had these in the store, and I can attest to the fact that they are pretty soft!I loved the wide waistband, but really loved the side pocket. I have a pair of lululemon leggings I wear to the gym all the time because it’s the only pair with a pocket for my phone. I like to listen to my phone while I workout, so this is perfect!


Moisture Management Workout Tee – $12.80


Color Pop Workout Tank – $17.80

I love the back of this tank top! May have to order this one…


Tribal Print Workout Leggings – $19.80

Because who doesn’t like colorful leggings for running? Or the gym?

yoga shorts

Heathered Colorblocked Yoga Shorts – $12.80

I have been loving spandex shorts lately as opposed to normal running shorts. If I can find a pair that is just as comfortable as my lululemon ones, then that is a win! I love the color and pattern on these.

I’m all about find cute gym outfits to wear. I feel better when I am wearing something I like, than when I’m wearing a random, frumpy t-shirt and shorts (because I forgot to do laundry). The quality on the clothes I saw in the Forever 21 store was pretty good, though I haven’t worn any of their stuff yet, so I can’t say for sure how they will feel when you’re actually working out or running. I will get back to you on that!

Which of these is your favorite?

Have you shopped at Forever 21 for workout clothes? Where else do you find your workout gear?

  1. Okay, so I am a huge fan of Forever21. It is my favorite place to shop!! I just recently ordered even more of their activewear clothes, just received them, LOVE them, and get so many nice compliments at the gym!! LOVE this post!!

  2. I love the look of the tribal leggings, but don’t think I’d have the nerve to wear them! I have really muscular legs and can only imagine how much larger the triangles on my thighs would be than the ones at my knees. ;-)

    Would be curious about the quality of these.

  3. I think I love the color pop workout top best! The back of it with the multiple straps is just too cute. I wish we had a store in Australia :)

    I now want to go out and buy new workout gear..of course!

  4. I had no idea Forever 21 had workout gear! Love the prices and LOVE that they have shorts with a pocket. That’s so hard to find.

    Did you see the color pop workout tank in the store? Does it have a sports bra built in? The description on their website doesn’t say. It would look weird to have to wear a sports bra underneath. Thanks!

    • I didn’t see it in the stores, and I also love it! I would assume it would have a built in bra bc you’re right, it’d be weird if you had to wear your own sports bra under…hmmm
