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. 

leggings

Seamless Performance Leggings – $10.80

shorts

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!

shirt

Moisture Management Workout Tee – $12.80

tanktop

Color Pop Workout Tank – $17.80

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

leggingstribal

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?

T.J. Maxx Activewear

We all want cute workout clothes right? Good quality…but also makes you feel and look good while exercising. Well, T.J. Maxx has a huge variety of activewear; and the prices make it even better!

I outlined a few places you can buy gym clothes without breaking the bank, but T.J. Maxx has a great selection in and of itself. Plus, you can order right online if there isn’t one near you.

I went on their website to do some online shopping for you all, and found a lot of great items. I’m not familiar with all of the brands they carry, so I’m only listing the ones I have tried and love: MPG, 90 Degree and RBX. They really are great quality, and as I mentioned in this video the materials used are pretty close to brands like lululemon.

If you don’t feel like splurging on workout clothes, check out these items on the T.J. Maxx website!

Shorts

New Balance Boylston Mini Shorts – $14.99

I didn’t mention these above, but we know New Balance is a good brand, and I love anything in coral!

90 Degree Ruched Side Stretch Shorts – $12.99

I have similar shorts from 90 Degree and they really are pretty comparable to the lululemon spandex shorts.

MPG Electrolyte Compression Shorts – $16.99

Pants

RBX Stretch Yoga Capri Pants – $14.99

90 Degree Athletic Capri Pants – $14.99

No really, I love coral-I need these!

Tops

90 Degree Ruched Sleeves Zip Yoga Jacket – $24.99

Love the thumbholes-looks perfect for spring running. I actually got a similar jacket from Old Navy too!

RBX Heather Long Sleeve Top – $12.99

I have this top as well, and let me tell you, it is so soft! You can wear it to the gym or for running, but you can also wear it as an everyday casual top.

90 Degree Ruched Racerback Tank – $9.99 (!)

MPG Adora Bra Tank Top – $16.99

I really like the back of this top as well.

So there you have it folks. A bunch of great and cute stuff at T.J. Maxx. I also find these brands at Marshall’s, which is similar (and I believed owned by the same people) as T.J. Maxx. You can find a lot of things that look like higher-end stuff, and I’m all about that!

Do you shop at T.J. Maxx?

What are your favorite places to get workout clothes?
