Not everyone has an extra $250 hanging around to drop on fuzzy sock-like loungewear, even if it’s created by Kim Kardashian West herself. But when creativity and craftiness meet, you can get the same tank, pant and robe look for only $25. YouTuber Kheumani Stevenson, who is known for money saving clothing hacks, created her own version of Kim Kardashian West’s newest Cozy Collection Skims release—with a plush Walmart blanket. The three-piece outfit retails on the Skims site for a whopping $268. Stevenson's hack, however, costs only $25.72.

Stevenson posted photos of the duped robe, pants and tank in a now-viral tweet, linking to an instructional video on how to create the Skims-inspired look.

“Word on the street is Kim K is charging $250-plus for this whole fit that we just made for $25,” Stevenson says in the video. And the results are quite similar. 

Amazingly, the $25.72 Walmart blanket used is big enough to provide fabric for all three pieces of Stevenson’s matching creation. Those who need to craft a larger size may need two blankets to complete the look, but even a $50 price tag is a fraction of the cost of Kim K’s luxe set. Using a sewing machine and basic sewing skills, Stevenson completes the dupe in about two hours. Now that's impressive.

Even if you aren’t crafty enough to make your own three-piece set, you have to admit this blanket looks mighty cozy. And since all the original Skims pieces are sold out, this may be the only way to get the look until a restock. Scoop up the exact blanket Stevenson used before the internet becomes savvy to this little secret.
