It's quickly shaping up to be the year of positive change, because the fashion industry has already made another stride towards body positivity and size inclusivity. Forever 21 launched a plus size activewear line, and the stylish clothes are so pretty, you'll be counting down the minutes until your next gym session.
The fast fashion retailer has long been known for offering extended sizes, so it only makes sense they would expand that into athletic wear. The stylish new line aims to cater to all types of activity including yoga, running, and cycling. A wide variety of pieces are available such as varsity style mesh tops, marbled sports bras, sheer-paneled leggings, strappy tanks, and zip-up hoodies.
The collection is aligned with the booming athleisure trend, which means you can totally rock this activewear like streetwear. Complete with a curve-hugging fit, anti-odor technology, and super affordable prices, and you've got a winning collection that epitomizes comfort-meets-style.
As if the cool clothes weren't exciting enough, Forever 21 tapped supermodel Ashley Graham to front the campaign, which makes me an even bigger fan. The plus-size model is notorious for her body positive attitude and radiant confidence, so she is clearly the perfect fit as the face of the line.
