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.

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?
