Elegantly Unkempt Bedding for Messy People

Shopper's Guide

Earlier this year, we took a break from the hospital-corner-aesthetic and dove into some elegantly unkempt bedrooms to mixed reviews. Although the look tends to drive neatniks crazy, some people just don't make the bed on a daily basis. For all you messy folks out there, here are 10 styles that will make it seem like you left the covers untucked on purpose.

  1. Matteo's Fil Coupe Duvet Cover (a luxury fabric that's garment dyed and washed) will set you back a whopping $995. Perfect for people who are so busy pulling in tons of money that they don't have time to make the bed.
  2. Les Indiennes is a high-end retailer that makes Indian block-print bedding. Call stores for pricing.
  3. A less expensive option is West Elm's Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet Cover for $79 - $119. The textured surface hides wrinkles and looks great rumpled.
  4. For a beach resort vibe with wrinkle-proof fabric, try Serena and Lily's Ruched Quilt, $230 at at Layla Grace.
  5. If you like the hippie chic look, check out John Robshaw's Indigo Turban Quilt. It's pricey at $325 - $435, but the tie-dyed pattern looks grooviest when it's left untucked.
  6. Pine Cone Hill's Utopia Sable Blanket ($109 - $185) is a lightweight, casual bedspread made from 45% bamboo and 55% cotton.
  7. The Tonal Waterfall Ruffle Duvet Cover at Urban Outfitters ($148) looks like a prom dress that's been nonchalantly tossed across the bed.
  8. DwellStudio's Draper Stripe Duvet Set ($280) is the bedding equivalent of a seersucker suit. It's cool, comfortable, and not too serious.
  9. Eileen Fisher's Washed Linen Bedding ($75 - $278 at Garnet Hill) comes pre-wrinkled and worry-free.
  10. Area's Louie Coverlet ($290 - $330 at Design Public) has a ribbed texture that looks best when it's slightly scrunched.
