Check out these Barefoot Dreams alternatives and lookalikes we’re lovin’!

Oh, how we love saving money with these Barefoot Dreams inspired alternatives!

From plush throws and baby blankets to cozy cardigans and robes, Barefoot Dreams has set the bar for creating some of the softest products and we’ve fallen in love with them over the years.

However, along with their superior quality comes a hefty $100-ish price tag that’s quite a bit more than the typical blanket enthusiast and sweater lover is used to. I mean, with that budget, you could take home 3 or 4 items from a cheaper competitor brand!

Enter the Barefoot Dreams alternatives that are much kinder to your wallet and are rumored to be just as nice as the name brand.

Here are 4 Barefoot Dreams inspired looks that won’t break the bank:

1. Pottery Barn Cozy Pom Pom Sherpa Throw

Pottery Barn Cozy Pom Pom Sherpa Throw $24.99 $49 on clearance (regularly $49)

While the name-brand blanket has a whopping $150+ price tag, the Barefoot Dreams inspired blanket from Pottery Barn costs just $24.99 on sale. It regularly retails for $49 and frequently goes on sale for less.

The blankets are rumored to feel exactly the same as they’re both 100% polyester, but the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw is just a few inches longer. For less than half the price and with the addition of the adorable pom-poms on the trim, the clear winner here is the budget-friendly alternative!

2. Stars Above Cozy Robe

If I’m spending $99 on a robe, it had better come with magical fairy wings or something. On the contrary, the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Unisex Robe is pretty basic and isn’t much different than the $30 Target version.

The robes are almost identical in length, but the budget-friendly Target robe is a bit shorter than the CozyChic robe. I honestly like the shorter length better! Aside from that, they’re both 100% polyester, have the same side pocket detailing, and even come in the same gray and white colors.

Stars Above Cozy Chenille Robe is another great lookalike and is longer in length, but this one sells out fast so if you see it in stock, you better grab it quick!

3. Cozy-Knit Open-Front Cardigan Sweater

It really is an essential sweater that every gal needs in her closet but is the $34-$54 Old Navy version just as nice as its pricier competitor? I’d say so, and according to the reviews, those who have bought it are loving their cozy warm sweater.

The materials of the two sweaters are not exactly the same as Old Navy’s Cozy-Knit Open-Front Cardigan is made of 60% Acrylic, 38% Nylon, & 2% Spandex while the $119 Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan is made of 75% Nylon & 25% Rayon.

With such a reasonable price tag, you can even get a couple of different colors when you opt for the Old Navy version of this cozy sweater!

As another option, this Max & Mia The Essential Travel Cardigan is a really awesome alternative to the Barefoot Dreams cardigan. However, this one goes out of stock a lot, so definitely keep checking back to see if your size/color is available.

4. Urban Outfitters Stargazer Knit Throw

Urban Outfitters Stargazer Knit Throw $49
Automatic 50% off at checkout!
Final cost just $24.50

The Stargazer throw is yet another super affordable lookalike for the Barefoot Dream’s CozyChic Throw and resembles the original even more than the Pottery Barn blanket. Our team loves the affordable Urban Outfitters copycat, too!

Each throw is 100% polyester and machine washable, but the CozyChic throw is a bit larger measuring 54″ x 72″, while the blanket from Urban Outfitters, measures 50″ x 60″—not a huge difference and well worth the substantially lower price of $49 vs. $147.

After being gifted a Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket, I learned that Urban Outfitters makes one that looks very similar and at a fraction of the cost of the popular brand. Whaaat?! Best. News. Ever.

I couldn’t believe how much cheaper the Urban Outfitters blanket was compared to the original version, so I even did some digging and read up on the materials of each one, and I was shocked to learn that they really are almost exactly the same! – Collin

Quality doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Why spend double or triple the money on name-brand items when you can get the same look and level of quality with a less popular brand? Next time you’re about to make a big brand purchase, check for a highly-rated lookalike that could save you some cash! You might get lucky and find a less expensive version as good as a Barefoot Dreams original!

    The Urban Outfitters version of the dupe is 50% off today and free shipping. I told myself no no no more blankies just for me. So I’m saying it’s for my cats. (But it’s not!) Thanks Hip2Save!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! LOL! You’re welcome, Sharon! My cats love a good cozy blanket too! Thanks for the heads up on that sale!

    • Shawna

      and you can still get 50 dollars for a future purchase if you spend 100

    • Sheila

      I have two of the barefoot dreams cozy chick throws and 4 of the urban outfitters. I much prefer the urban outfitters stargazer over the Barefoot dreams.

  2. Candice

    The Urban Outfitters Stargazer knit throw is 50% off now.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Candice!

  3. Materof6

    I’m being induced next Tuesday with baby#8….just treated myself to a new robe! 😊…I also picked up the Urban Outfitters throw this week for a “momma treat”! Lol! Thanks for posting! I’m excited to try these out!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, You’re so welcome! Congratulations! SO exciting! 💖🥰🤗

    I got the Stargazer throw and it’s very nice, but I wouldn’t compare it to a BD blanket. I have several BD cardigans that I got off of Poshmark. They are much more tightly woven than the Stargazer throw. The throw is almost exactly like the cloud wrap cardigan I got from an Alltrue box a while ago. It’s still super soft and worth it, but just not the same. I hear that the dupe actually washes much better. One thing about the throw, I found it to be super small, but I typically only buy oversized throws, so take that for what it’s worth!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your review, Sarah! Good to know what you’ve thought of it!

  5. AvB

    Does anyone know how the Sam’s club blanket dupe for BD is?

    • Tmoha

      My sister in law loves it & says by far best dupe, also has a matching robe!

      • AvB

        Thank you!

  6. Mona

    Am I the only one, that was completely disappointed with the UO blanket? I waited and waited, got it for $29 on sale and, it’s definitely not worth the full price. I would hope that BD, for the price they sell, it’s a much nicer one.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Sorry to hear that, Mona. Thanks for your honest feedback.

    I found a better homes and gardens dupe at Walmart. I found it shockingly nice!
