Lounge Wear Reviews & Sales

Abercrombie petite athleisure try on

As many of you have requested loungewear posts during this time, I wanted to share a few casual looks from around the house lately, plus some try-ons that I loved / didn’t love from recent orders.

Asymmetrical snap top pullover xs (see xxs on me)
I have this in versatile black / grey from over a year ago (it was one of the top reader favorite items of 2019!) and got suckered in by their new neutral colors. This “blush pink” is actually more of a pretty pale mauve, though I had trouble deciding between this in the cream with grey. I sized up on this as I’ve gained a little weight since last year, however I’d stick with your usual size because I had to flip up the sleeves on the XS. I do love the marginally longer length though, which now fully covers my crotch for wearing with leggings. This is what I’ve been wearing most days for our occasional stroller walks with Nori to get some fresh air while social distancing!

Color block crewneck sweatshirt xxs
This was my favorite sweatshirt of the bunch from my order. I love the neutral colorblock, which adds a little interest but will still be easy to pair with denim. The cut is perfectly slouchy with a slightly cropped length good for petite ladies, however note the sleeves are full length, so as you go up in size, sleeve length increases as well. If you have shorter arms, check out the balloon sleeve sweatshirt below which has a similar cut but 3/4 length sleeves!

For higher quality petite jogger pants you can  wear outside of the house and for future travel, see below:

Athleta Recover Joggers (regular, petite, plus, tall)
The colors in this outfit are better depicted within this blog post. These joggers were still well-stocked in petites several days ago, but unfortunately went quickly with the sale. I was never able to find xxs petite over the past few months, so these are one size up. They’re a tad loose but I love how nice and thicker quality they are with zippered pockets and a nice length. Check out their other petite joggers, as I’ve generally heard good things about their activewear and loungewear.

Satin lace bodysuit xs , high rise jeans 25 short (hems cuffed), Gucci slim belt 70 cm (my review)

Satin Lace Bodysuit (several colors)
Not loungewear, but wanted to mention this one! I’ve always loved A&F lace camisoles, so the combo of this versatile new taupe color + the functional bodysuit feature (won’t come untucked easily) makes this bodysuit a win for me. I style my lace camis with so much ranging from pleated skirts, to high waisted trousers and basic denim. Per usual, I wear my Bristol 6 adhesive nippies with this.

Balloon sleeve sweatshirt xxs (unfortunately no longer included in the promo)
Sweatshirt elevated by stylish, slouchy balloon sleeves and a slightly cropped casual fit. This is great for petite ladies since most of their other sweatshirts have full length sleeves that get longer as you size up. This one is simple, but I’ve worn it with both leggings and jeans and like how it’s just a comfortable basic but with small special details.

Knit paperbag shorts xs
These were a definite keep for me – very comfortable, medium to thicker weight, has pockets and not too short. The grey is sold out but olive is still available!

abercrombie tie dye sweatshirt

Cinched hem hoodie (currently not included in the promo)
Very cute sweatshirt with a feature I love – generous kangaroo pockets (you can’t really see them in the photo). However I don’t wear many hoodies except for working out, so personally preferred the crewneck sweatshirts featured above for versatility.

High rise mom shorts (no longer included in their promo)
These were a return as I should’ve sized up one or two sizes for a true, looser “mom short” fit. I love the flattering higher rise, but a 24 was too snug on me (currently 5′ around 98lb) and I think I might prefer a slightly longer inseam length as well these days!

petite abercrombie try on and review

Sherpa sweatshirt xxs,  Everlane jeans 25, hems cut (my review), M.Gemi sneaker 35.5(JEAN60 for $60 off)

Sherpa crewneck sweatshirt
This was SO soft and cozy, however I wasn’t a big fan of the cut. The sleeves are relaxed and slightly balloon style like other sweatshirts in this try on, however the torso was a little more fitted, and I would’ve much preferred a consistently relaxed cut throughout.

    Hi Jean, Thank you for all your recommendations and the work you put into this site. I recently saw the A+F Pullover on you, and just had to have it. I also ended up purchasing their Linen-Blend Button-Up Cami and in hindsight, should have ordered the XXS as it’s a tad too boxy. Have you had any luck with a hopefully-more-stylish hack of a waist cincher (i.e. “Ruisita 8 Pieces Fashion Fit Dress Clips Stainless Steel Elastic Clip Garments Glove Clips” on Amazon)? You have so many hacks, I wanted to pick your brain. Thanks!

      Hi Liz, I’m afraid I haven’t tried anything similar to that one! Not sure if you or a friend/family member has a sewing machine but it should be a pretty easy straight stitch down both sides to slim the cami down, if that helps

      Thank you, Christina! (I removed the link as the seller is using photos of bloggers I know wearing the A&F fleece to sell the dupe)
