Lookalike for Less: My Anthropologie Duvet Cover

My Anthro duvet has been a major favorite of mine for years – I loved it so much I bought it twice (in twin for my bed at home, and later in full for my new bed when I moved into my apartment). It’s long gone from Anthropologie but now PB Teen has a dead ringer, in both a duvet and a comforter:

I’ve always loved the duvet cover because it adds a great texture to the bed – though I have to admit I haven’t used the duvet in a while because it’s SO incredibly hot. Anyone else have issues with heavy duvets? Lately I’ve just been using my Serena and Lily blanket layered with a sherpa throw – nice and cozy!

    I’ve had issues with it getting too toasty in my studio sometimes too and had to pack away my heavy duvet soon after moving in. I bought one of the lightest duvets/”comforters” from IKEA so I could still have a pretty duvet cover and it’s been perfect. It’s remained on my bed for just over a year now through all the seasons. The PB Teen comforter seems like a good option to help you avoid overheating under a heavy duvet and still have the same look!

      Ah, perfect! I’m going to look up the Ikea duvet insert, because the one I have now is just way too hot. I think part of it though might be the Anthro cover itself – all those folds of fabric probably trap a lot of heat! But good to know there is a lightweight version out there.
