When you work out as much as I do (a WCW prerequisite) your workout wardrobe begins to take on a life of it's own. There are many elements to consider when picking out your fitness fashion story- will I find myself in positions that could potentially display my vadge or be conducive to camel-toe? Will I be likely to sweat, not in a 'getting-my-cardio-on' chic way, but in a 'this-plank-is-making-me-drip-like-an-obese' way? Will I really be working out, or just actually want to be comfy and APPEAR to be heading to/from some fitness fun? This is when you have to make wise choices and pick: leggings versus shorts, a dark colored top versus light, or rock that neon legging/off the shoulder/caged sports bra/cute sneaker combo.
When it comes to my own personal collection, of course I've got my Lulu and Lorna staples. I live and die by my Speed Shorts and have been known to incorporate my Amy Tights into an office OOTD. I love Nike, Alo, and Zella all day every day.
But can I just take a sec and officially go on the record to say F21 has stepped up their activewear offerings like whoa??? They are blowing my mind these days with their selection, fashion, and price points (duh).
I can't even count how many times I get asked where my F21 workout top/bottoms are from. Church. I don't even feel shame when I proclaim "they're FOREVER 21!!!!" because a). I'm not that bougie and b). I secretly and selfishly hope the more chicks buy their activewear the more they'll make.
Here are some of my current faves, many of which I already own & luv:
Here's a real-life WCW's photo-op of me rocking option #3 (in black), and co-blogger rocking a green F21 pair at this year's Pride 5k:
I won that race BTW. Just kidding. I came in second. Tuyen... just had a nice time.
So go support your local mass-produced, style-stealing F21 this holiday season and remember to size up.
