I’ve worn sweats more in the last 12 months than I ever have in my life. With so much wear, I thought a quick update to my selection was in order. When it comes to loungewear or sweats, I have a couple of particulars. First, I want it to be something that, though extra comfortable and cozy, doesn’t look too much like pajamas. Loungewear should make me feel put together, not like I’m headed to bed. Second, I really prefer a cropped length on my sweatpants. I’m not very tall and I find that the “cropped” styles actually look full length on me, making it easier to wear with any shoe.
I’m happy to report that this set from The Great checks both of those boxes. This set includes the brand’s wide leg cropped sweatpants (which has the most perfect crop-flare tailoring) and the shrunken sweatshirt. What I like about their knits is that their tailored (read: not oversized and baggy) and much more lightweight than any other sweats I have, making them ideal for warm weather wear.
Bottom line: I love a matching set. (It requires minimal effort, but still makes you look put together.) The Great has mastered this. They have an entire section dedicated to their different sweat styles (love the slouch sweatshirt) and – best part – each item comes in a multitude of color options (the pink!) which makes mixing and matching so easy. Once you’ve figured out your favorite styles, you can get a quick refresh in with new hues.
