Every season, Amazon manages to take the fashion world by storm with a trendy, budget-friendly item that ends up all over Instagram.
In early 2018, it was the coat New York Magazine said had “taken over the Upper East Side” (you know the one). The (now $140) winter parka could be spotted on sidewalks across Manhattan and earned internet fame for its thousands of reviews.
In the summer of 2018, it was the tassel-trimmed high-waist bikini that made it into beach bags from the East to West coast.
And last fall we predicted it would be this $36 Amazon teddy coat, which has racked up about four times the number of reviews since we first spotted this comfortable-and-cozy coat last September. And for good reason.
Coats are always a major part of your fall and winter wardrobe, but in the time of COVID-19, a cozy coat is practically necessary. In fact, teddy coats are at the top of our cozy fall fashion essentials for 2020, right up there with tie-dye loungewear sets and cozy slippers for lounging.
This PrettyGarden Faux Shearling Coat is one of the most affordable we’ve seen. It’s an Amazon best-seller with a 4.1-star rating and nearly 6,500 reviews — more than quadruple the number of reviews when we first spotted this coat in early September 2019.
It comes in two notable styles — a two-button lapel coat, or a zip-jacket style —in a combination of 31 autumnal colors and styles. It’s available in sizes S to 3X and is sold for just $36 full price.
The dressier option includes an oversized collar and lapels with double-breasted buttons and side pockets that make it easy to pull any jeans-and-sweater combo into a more polished look.
The more casual zip-up style is perfect if you want something for quick coffee-runs or more laid-back streetwear. Either way, we’re predicting you’ll see more of this coat before the winter is through.
