Given that the amount of time we’re spending indoors has greatly increased over the past month when it comes to our wardrobes, we have loungewear on the brain quite a lot right now. Last year at this time, my inbox was inundated with marketing emails about new spring dresses, vacation dressing, and the latest designer It bags and shoes. This year, emails about sweatpants, leggings, sneakers, pajamas, and slippers are dominating my inbox.
I’m sure that we can all agree that spending a lot of money on loungewear isn’t on our to-do lists right now, but finding the best affordable loungewear certainly might be. All knit loungewear is not created equal, and if you’re on the hunt for loungewear that looks and feels expensive but is far from it, your best bets are ribbed knit items. The textured fabric has some weight to it and falls nicely, as opposed to knit jersey fabric, which can be thin and clingy. For further proof, keep scrolling to shop some of my favorite low-cost but expensive-looking ribbed knits.
