Why is it a good deal?

Shoppers have catapulted the Anrabess brand to rock-star levels on Amazon — it's known for of-the-moment styles. The Anrabess Cardigan Jacket is a new addition, and quality long cardigan jackets are hard to come by at this low price. If you're looking for something cozy, this 44%-off deal is the way to go.

Why do I need this?

Many of us are looking to pad our outerwear collection to survive the rest of winter in style — and the Anrabess Cardigan Jacket provides warmth and coverage without bulking you up or weighing you down. Plus, thanks to its sleek silhouette, you'll avoid the dreaded "Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man" look that so many padded parkas bestow upon their wearers.

This cardi-jacket falls just below the knee, so you can wear it over a dress or skirt — it's even sophisticated enough to wear to a wedding. Made with viscose, polyester and nylon, it's soft and drapey for a comfortable fit. It comes in a ton of gorgeous, seasonally appropriate colors, including beige, brown, gray and more.

What reviewers say

Shoppers can't stop gushing about how stylish this sweater coat is. More than 2,000 rave reviewers have given it a perfect five-star rating, with many comparing it to J.Crew.

"I purchased this as an alternative to the expensive J.Crew coatigan and it did not disappoint," said a fan. "It’s thick without being bulky; great lines and shape. I loved it so much I ordered several more in different colors."

A fellow happy customer said the jacket is "higher quality than expected." They continued, "If you’re thinking about buying it, do it. It’s a heavier fabric than expected and luxe-looking. I spotted a similar one years ago at J.Crew that was more than double the price of this and I’m glad that I held out."

Consider this testimonial, too: "Got this for Christmas and the quality is exceptional. Nice weight and it washes well. My sister has an identical coatigan from J.Crew at 3x the price and we couldn’t tell the difference."

"I love these coat sweaters," a final buyer said. "They are heavier than a knit sweater and come in great colors. I would buy a size up next time so I could wrap it and use a belt to have the option to close it rather than wear it open."

Layer this jacket over a T-shirt and jeans to instantly elevate your look, or toss it over a dress for added warmth.
