A few months ago I wrote a post about how I thought I was too old to shop at Forever 21, but I was wrong. I know it’s hard to admit when you’re wrong (my mom would know). However, Forever 21 has changed my mind with their newest fall collection and their active wear assortment. I know I am late to the game on understanding how cute their active wear is, but don’t worry. Now I understand completely, and I have started a list of everything I want to buy!
On that note, let’s talk about their active wear. It’s sleek, the different leggings with cool cutouts and sports bras with all kinds of fun straps. It makes you look like you are serious about working out (even if you’re not).
The quality is shockingly nice. I, like everyone, am weary of Forever 21’s quality standard. The active wear breaks that stereotype. It feels thick and stable with no worry of seeing your bum while doing squats. The sports bras even have a small bra cup/pad. This is to make sure there is no worry of unwanted nipple showing through along with more support.
When looking around the a few Forever 21 stores I noticed that all the bras I saw were low impact. Online they sell a good selection of high impact bras there, but there is twice the amount of medium and low impact bras. I personally need high impact sports bras keep my boobs contained when I run. That will be the true test for this active wear line. I haven’t tried the rest of the line, but honestly I am really excited to try it!
The Fall Line
Now we can move on to the stuff that really inspired this post. Forever 21’s fall pieces that has been coming out in recent weeks. Fall in my favorite season. I love when the leaves change, I love fall colors, and I love all the fall trends I am seeing.
Forever 21 has its pulse on what the trends are going to be for the next season and make sure the consumer has as many variations of that trend. For example, florals are still going to be an important trend for fall. When visiting three different Forever 21 stores, there was an excess of floral pieces based on that trend. I am not just talking tops, but bottoms, dresses, rompers, etc. Forever 21 is definitely getting it right with all the trends this fall.
