The odds are that you will be able to find several styles you like, with all the styles being available in both patterns and solids.
Perhaps one reason people tend to wonder about the esthetics of energy saving drapes is they have a vision of the foam-lined draperies that were popular in the middle twentieth century.

Various fabric blends and even the dyes used in the drapery fabric help to perform the same function today, without the need for your window dressing to look heavy.
