The days of staying inside all the time may be gone, but we can all agree (and rejoice!) that loungewear isn't going anywhere—and neither are loungewear trends.
We asked Marie Claire Fashion-Editor-at-Large + "E! News" fashion correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi and style guru Gretta Monahan to try trendy loungewear that's really similar—except for the prices. And Rach guessed which was the save outfit and which was the splurge. (Spoiler alert: She guessed wrong for the first time … maybe ever! Watch in the video above.)
Shop the loungewear looks below. (We found the pricier ones for you to shop, too, just in case you're in the mood to splurge!)
FYI: Some of Gretta and Zanna's picks are already sold out—or close to it (hurry!)—but we found some similar alternatives for you. (We told you these trends are popular!)
LOUNGEWEAR TREND NO. 1: Dip-Dyed (or Ombré)
SAVE: Zanna's brown ombré set is sold out, BUT you can snag the sweatshirt in black/white tie-dye and the sweatpants in pink/purple dip-dye or cream tie-dye. There are also solid colors available in both, making it easy to mix and match!
"It's so comfortable," Zanna says. "It's super lightweight, easy to throw in the wash. I kind of upsized a little bit. I think it's nice to make something feel really luxe by upsizing a little bit. I'm loving it."
Loving Zanna's chunky white sneakers, too? They're only $32! Shop them here.
SPEND: Gretta's The Upside Alena Ombre Crewneck Top and Pants ($170 each) are super popular and sold out in some sizes, but you can browse available options (it also comes in a super summer-y orange color) on Selfridges, Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter (see the sweatshirt here) and Revolve.
"I'm cool and comfortable," Gretta says. "I absolutely love it. [The Upside] are the leaders in luxury athleisure. Things that you're going to keep, wear a lot, wash a lot. They do handcrafted dips, so every garment's a little unique."
LOUNGEWEAR TREND NO. 2: Sherpa
"I feel incredibly cozy," Gretta says. "This really feels more like a sweater or a layering piece because the weight doesn't quite step into what [Zanna] is wearing — outerwear. But you still get the look, which I absolutely love."
SPEND: Zanna's Carbon38 Zip Up Teddy Jacket is unfortunately sold out, but we found another option for you that looks just as stylish and comfy. (Not to mention it's on sale!)
Plus, her white sneakers are here if you're interested and in the mood for a splurge!
