Get yourself a girl who can do both, and by both, I mean go from wearing the most epic revenge dress to a pair of sweats in 2.5 seconds. If you don’t already know what I’m referencing, then you’re clearly living under a rock and need to log onto #VPRTikTok immediately and reassess your priorities. Yes, I’m talking about Ariana Madix and every look she’s worn in public since the dawn of #Scandoval.

The Super Bowl Vanderpump Rules 3-part reunion airs starting Wednesday, May 24, at 9 p.m. on Bravo, and what better way to show your support for our number 1 queen than being comfy AF in the same sweats she dons on the regular (as if we needed another reason to wear sweats)? I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the fact that the pair of sweats she wore on her way to get ready for the epic reunion quite literally spoke for itself with a mantra that we should all hold near and dear to our hearts: “1-800-Boys-Lie.” But, that’s not the only set she’s worn in her revenge era. And since there are so many sweats, so little time, I found some of her best looks for you so you can stop stalking her IG and start prepping for the drama.


Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - March 23, 2023

When this image hit the internet, we all collectively RAN to buy this set, so naturally, it’s sold out. That said, the brand has a ton of equally amazing options that just hit the nail on the head.

Or if yellow is just really giving you that much-needed dose of serotonin during these dark AF, drama-filled episodes (which is all of us) here’s another great option. Just add an iced coffee and you’re set.

Shopping Is Her Cardio

Like a lot of people on a beautiful Saturday in SoHo, Ariana was caught doing what any normal girl does for a workout—going shopping. It’s like, really exhausting looking that good all the time. Lucky for you, you can snag the same look with a sweat set and the exact sneaks she was wearing.

Serving More Than Just Pumptinis

In a post just before she joined Andy Cohen for Watch What Happens Live, Ariana literally went from zero to 100 in no time. That said, her zero look was the hero of the night IMO… I mean, the idea of rolling up to a step-and-repeat in this is honestly iconic, and if I could do the same thing, I would. Plus, you’d have something to change back into on the ride home and we all know that’s literally a must.

These Joggers Are So Soft, They’re Hard To Take Off On Laundry Day

Joggers have been a staple in many people’s wardrobes, especially since WFH became a thing for a lot of us. They’re comfortable, versatile, and can be dressed up or down. But not all joggers are created equal, and it can be challenging to find the perfect pair. That’s where Vuori’s Performance Joggers come in—you know, the joggers that scored over 120 million views on TikTok.

First off, let’s talk about the material. The joggers are made of a soft, stretchy fabric that’s moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and breathable. This makes them perfect for working out or running errands. The material also has a subtle sheen, giving it a more elevated look than your average sweatpants.

But what sets these joggers apart from the rest is the fit. They have a tapered leg and a high-rise waistband that’s both flattering and comfortable. The waistband also has a drawstring, so you can adjust it to your liking. The joggers hit at the ankle, which is perfect for showing off your sneakers or slippers.

The joggers come in a variety of colors, from classic black and heather gray to more vibrant shades like teal and coral. They also come in different sizes, including petite and plus sizes, so there’s a pair for everyone. One thing to note is that the joggers do run a bit small, so consider sizing up if you prefer a looser fit. But once you find your size, you’ll never want to take them off. They’re so comfortable that you can wear them all day, whether you’re lounging at home or running errands.

Overall, the Vuori Performance Joggers are a must-have in your wardrobe. They’re comfortable, versatile, and stylish. No matter what’s on your schedule for the day, you’ll be all set once you slip into these. And, of course, they’re great for working out too. With a variety of colors and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect pair for you. Get yours for $94 at Nordstrom.

Loungewear Under $50 That Looks Expensive

I’m not sure how I missed the pre-quarantine memo informing everyone to get cute loungewear. On the contrary, I’ve been the idiot over here buying new spring clothes when I clearly should have been buying cute sweats, smh. Well, lesson learned for the next global pandemic. Anyway, it has now become impossible to get a lounge set anywhere because they’re all sold out. Pretty sure they were all bought up by the influencers considering they’ve all been flaunting new lounge looks every day. So since some of us didn’t get that initial memo and aren’t in the position to go spend $200 on a new sweatsuit, I’ve found some affordable loungewear options that still look expensive. Here are my must-have loungewear pieces from some of my favorite places to online shop.

1. Nasty Gal

nasty gal set

Nasty Gal You’ve Met Your Match Knitted Sweater And Pants, $38

Nasty Gal ‘A Hot Pocket of Conversation’ Knit Lounge Set, $45.60

One of my favorite sites to shop, Nasty Gal, has been killing it with necessary new lounge arrivals during this quarantine. Like,  they’re really testing my self control and ability to be responsible with that stimulus check. They have tons of cute loungewear pieces that look expensive, like these monochromatic matching sets that are about as chic as glorified pajamas can be.

2. Talentless

Talentless French Terry Embroidered Crop Tee, $38

Talentless Women’s Premium Modal Tank, $34

When it comes to loungewear, there’s one family we can wholeheartedly trust because they famously made loungewear cool (and basically invented athleisure). Yes, I’m referring to America’s royal family, the Kardashians. And Scott Disick, the unofficial Kardashian, has come through for us this quarantine with his own elevated, high-quality loungewear brand, Talentless. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, it’s important to know that, unlike Yeezy, Talentless actually is relatively affordable and their product is super high quality. I always knew Scott was my favorite for a reason!

3. Nordstrom

Topshop Peached Jersey Sweatshirt, $36

Free People FP Movement Sunny Skinny Sweatpants, $48

One of the primary secrets to making your loungewear look expensive is keeping your whole look in a neutral palette. For example, think about the worst-dressed person you know. That person probably wears a lot of contrasting colors and bold prints and looks tacky af. Then think about everything the Kardashians wear. So yeah, point proven, your clothes look more expensive when they’re plain and in a neutral color.


ASOS DESIGN Hourglass Basic Jogger, $29

ASOS DESIGN Lounge Boxy Sweatshirt, $29

Another way to make your loungewear look more expensive, besides sticking to neutral colors, is to go totally monochrome with your look. To really maximize the “richness” of your look, do a monochrome look in a cool neutral color, like these dusty rose joggers and similarly colored boxy sweatshirt. 

5. Shopbop

x karla The Crew Tee, $48

x karla The Sleeveless Crop Tee, $48

I know you’re all about to go crazy on me right now for putting this seemingly basic white tee and sleeveless crop on this list, but hear me out first. This T-shirt is designed by Karla Welch, a top celebrity stylist who clearly knows a thing or two about what you need from your everyday basics. And, let me be the first to tell you, she makes the PERFECT white tee. Her basics line is composed of everyday essentials in the most premium fits, so trust me, they’re worth it and you’ll definitely want to order a few.

6. Princess Polly

Girl Soldier Jumper, $36

Rise & Lounge Jumper Black, $39 & Rise & Lounge Shorts Black, $32

Princess Polly is a site that has become a recent obsession of mine. No really, like I check the site daily for new arrivals… I think I might have a problem. Princess Polly always has incredible fashion finds that are totally affordable, and their loungewear basics are no exception. But warning, their product definitely sells fast—so if you see something you like, don’t sleep on it!

7. Zara

Satin Effect Striped Top, $17.90 & Satin Effect Striped Shorts, $29.90

Soft Feel Pants, $35.90

This striped set from Zara is the epitome of what elevated loungewear looks like. It could legitimately be PJs or a full going out look, all depending on how you choose to style it. Of course, during these quarantine times I don’t expect you to put on your best heels with it, but rather, a chic pair of fluffy slippers and an oversized cardigan for a very casual, glam lounge look. They currently also have these cozy pants, which are available in several colors and will look extra high-end paired with a basic tee.

8. Missguided

Casual Loungewear Jumpsuit, $28

Gray Balloon Midaxi Cardigan, $28

When it comes to super cheap fast fashion you have to be extra careful with your selections to ensure that they don’t actually look cheap. Thankfully, you truly can’t go wrong with an all-black loungewear jumpsuit, which is ideal for chilling. Plus, you can even wear it casually with a pair of chunky dad sneakers whenever we’re actually allowed out of the house again. Another must-have is this long cardigan, which is an ideal piece to have in your quarantine arsenal for just throwing on over all of your lounge outfits.

As you can see, there are a few themes here when it comes to purchasing affordable loungewear if you want it to still at least look expensive. In summary, try to stick to neutrals and monochromatic or tonal looks. You’ll naturally feel better about yourself quarantining in one of these chic affordable looks rather than your current slob-kabob look of a 2012 sorority formal tee paired with your gross ex-boyfriend’s sweats.

The Comfiest Sweats You Need For Your Winter Hibernation

One of the worst parts of being an adult—aside from taxes, health insurance, and being expected to treat people with mutual respect (or so I am gently reminded from time to time)—is having to put on pants. It’s not enough that I left the comfort of my own bed, now I’m expected to walk around all day in a jail for my legs? Can I opt out of growing up? The reality is, we’re all just lazy people doing the bare minimum to try to appear as if we actually do things with our lives, other than what’s required to keep food on the table. Well now there’s a fashion line that’s just as lazy as we are. It’s called Athlazy and it’s by Onepiece, the makers of your favorite lounging attire. 

Before you ask, this is not athleisure. This is not putting on leggings with mesh cutouts, a workout tank that could easily double as a going-out top, and a full face of makeup to go to Whole Foods. Who has the time for a full-fledged contour just to go grocery shopping or in general? Nobody. And let’s be honest, nobody is fooled by the fools who run around in Lululemon leggings and a blowout. We know you didn’t just come from the gym! If you did, your blowout wouldn’t still be intact—the rules of haircare are simple and finite. We see you, athleisure extras. And we raise you, one Athlazy.

If athleisure is trying hard to make it look like you work out, athleisure is the opposite. It’s comfy af clothing that screams, “my arm workout today is lifting my Gatorade bottle to my face” (to be fair, those things are heavy). It’s matching sweatpants and sweatshirt sets, joggers and track sweaters, and of course, Onepiece’s signature onepieces. It goes without saying that they’re all super comfy, and they’re all unisex, meaning you can totally steal borrow your boyfriend’s for your next walk of shame. Check this shit out and try to tell me this isn’t literally your life.

Shopping is my cardio. I believe Kayla Itsines said that.

This is totally what I have in mind when some douchebag at the gym asks me “Do you even lift bro?” and I say yes. It’s a very rigorous workout routine. *wonders why my triceps have the firmness of mashed potatoes*

Check out OnePiece’s entire Athlazy collection. It’s perfect for Netflix and Chill, Snapchatting on the mats at the gym, fitness whole pizza in your mouth, and all other activities that make up your degenerate lifestyle. Thank god winter is on its way and we can all stop pretending to give a shit about how we look.
