Clothes from Forever 21 Activewear

It is no secret that a sassy workout wardrobe encourages us to get moving.
With this in mind I was so thrilled when Forever 21 asked me to share their new Activewear range with you guys.
Like so many others this January, I committed myself to starting the year afresh, and beginning healthy regimes, which naturally meant investing in a new workout wardrobe for encouragement. I L-O-V-E the feeling of new workout clothes – they totally have inbuilt oomph!
And so I browsed the vast (and I mean vast) selection of Forever 21 Activewear pieces in store – all of which can be accessed online too – and was bowled over by just how good the range is. Having run, and taken classes in my Forever 21 pieces over the past week I can confirm that they live up to standards, and the price point is a great entry level which makes adding to your workout wardrobe pain free.
A Note On Styling: when interviewing Khloe Kardashian late last year one of my fellow bloggers asked her about her gym routine and how she managed to look so stylish when being papped on exiting the gym. Her reply? “wear all black” and hey I’ve got to hand it to Khloe K – I gave the all black ensemble a whirl and yes it feels pro. Colour being my natural predisposition however I couldn’t commit to a total monotone look and so broke things up with this awesome hoodie (similar in their range here), grey trainers and a neon beanie. When it comes to the gym vs outside running I like them both pretty evenly but for different reasons.

I love running in the fresh air and find it way more interesting to explore areas on foot that pounding away on the treadmill, but being visible is so so important and so wearing flashes of neon like this hat is vital. Whilst the days are still short it is easy to become invisible in dark clothing so be safe peeps! I love these tops with a reflective running trim from Forever 21 for an easy way to stand out. For the gym I like a streamlined silhouette and this tank is ace.
On days when I just can’t make time or find the pizazz to leave the house I love following online workouts. I use YouTube as my motivator and get my sweat on in the comfort of my living room. Remember when I said that Forever 21 have a vast Activewear collection? I tell no lies – I nabbed myself an all black getup and a second set of workout clothes in a grey and turquoise palette. The aqua colours are calming – perfect for when I am doing yoga or stretching. Additionally on low impact days I find that a simple soft bralet is most comfortable – I love the print of these. In fact following this shoot with Lea I was so darn comfy I may or may not have kept on my workout gear all day – although in my defence I was doing some pretty hard core house work – and seriously that’s a workout in itself!
With the weekend upon us it is a GREAT time to head outdoors, be kind to yourself and keep up – or start – your healthy habits. Head to Forever 21 here or in store and treat yourself to a new workout wardrobe – trust me – it’ll be one of the best investments you ever make.
Let me know how you get on guys and have a great weekend!
