I Swapped My Expensive Workout Clothes for Forever 21 (and I'm a Fan)

Welcome back to another one of my Forever 21 style swapping sessions. A little over two years ago, I shared my outfits from when I swapped all my clothes for Forever 21 for a week, and since it was a hit, I figured I'd give it another go, only this time, I'd test out the fast-fashion brand's activewear selection. I'll admit it was a slight push to motivate myself to get back at the gym, but I've also had my eye on a few of the brand's workout sets, so it seemed like a win-win.

To motivate myself even further, I enlisted Bryan Clemons, an L.A.-based celeb trainer, to train me for the week while I tested out the five different Forever 21 looks. From the variety of sports bras and leggings I selected, I was pleasantly surprised by the fit of each item. For me, all the pieces fit true to size. Although I approved each outfit, there was one clear winner in my book: the lace-up set. I loved how it fit, especially the leggings, because the material held me in tight, and the design was super high-rise, which I always prefer. There's no doubt that I'll wear each piece again, and I'll keep my eye out for more matching sets from the fast-fashion brand now that I know how they look and fit IRL.
