My Forever 21 Activewear Picks for May

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. Forever 21 did not sponsor or compensate me for this post; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Since my posts on affordable workout clothes are some of my most popular, I decided to feature my picks each month. This month, I’ll show you two pieces from the Forever 21 activewear line that I just bought and love!

I have to be in the right mood to shop at Forever 21. I feel like their hangers are always so tightly squeezed together, it’s so hard to actually browse through clothes. I discovered their activewear line a few months ago and really liked the quality, especially for the low prices! Some of their stuff feels like the same type of material as a lululemon swiftly shirt…I actually wanted to buy one to show you for this post but they didn’t have my size :( This is one of the ones I’m talking about.

I found the last of this tank top I’m wearing in the photos below, and really comfortable spandex shorts. The shorts don’t ride up much, and are such a soft material. I love the wide waistband and waistband details as well! Check out my photoshoot and I’ll link to the items at the end :)

I love this last photo…my hair – what is it doing??

The pink run top is really soft and I think will be perfect for summer races. Unfortunately, I can’t find it online, but here is a similar option that says “See You At The Finish Line.”

Here are the colorblocked shorts in both gray (like I’m wearing) and black. The shorts are $12.90, and the top is also $12.90…can’t beat that!

Pin it!

On a budget? Try the Forever 21 Activewear line!

I think next month I’ll show my workout finds from T.J. Maxx or Marshall’s. Sometimes you can find great deals there as well.

Have you shopped at Forever 21 for workout clothes? Where is your favorite place to shop?

  10. Those shorts are super cute! And you look amazing in those photos :) I never go into Forever 21 as I also find it hard to see the clothes they’re all so packed tightly together… ain’t nobody got time for that!

    • Aw thank you! :) and yes, ain’t nobody got time for that indeed. That’s why I like the bigger stores so it’s at least a little more spread out.

  11. Such a great workout outift! Great price too! I don’t live near one so have never shopped there. I love geting gear from Skirt Sports, athleta and Lululemon.

    • lol I am always like, okay time to shop at more “grown up stores” but always end up at forever 21 mainly because it’s affordable. Yes, shirts will shrink or rip after a few wears but hey, at least it was only 10 bucks :)

  14. LOVE getting cheap/affordable workout clothes! Thanks for sharing :D
