This fan-favorite knit jacket is better than 'J.Crew cardigans' and nearly 40% off at Amazon

It's the time of year when you have parties and gatherings that require you to get a little bit more dressed up than usual, which is quite nice, we think, except for when we feel like we have absolutely nothing to wear. That's why we're big fans of this Anrabess Cardigan Jacket, because it can dress up just about anything you already have in your closet, and is a great fit for so many body types and sizes. It's a great additional layer for indoors or outdoors and a bonus we all love: it has pockets!

Falling temps = time to up your style game. Choose from 21 different shades.

Why is it a good deal?

Shoppers have catapulted the brand Anrabess to rock star levels on Amazon — it's known for fun styles. The Anrabess Cardigan Jacket is a new addition, and long cardigan jackets are hard to come by at $43. If you're looking for something to cozy up in this winter, it's gone on sale a few times this, but with the temps staying low for the next few months, we expect the price to go up.

Why do I need this?

The Anrabess Cardigan Jacket falls just below the knee, so you can wear it over a dress or skirt — it's even dressy enough to wear to a wedding. Made with viscose, polyester and nylon, it's soft and drapey for a comfortable fit. Under a coat or by itself inside, it's just right for extra warmth and extra style.

What reviewers say

Shoppers can't stop gushing about how stylish this sweater coat is. Nearly 2,000 rave reviewers have given it a perfect five-star rating.

"It is gorgeous! Not too heavy, which is great for those of us who like to dress in layers," wrote a five-star fan. "I plan to buy in another color. Oh...and Pockets!! One of my favorite clothing buys from Amazon!"

"Love this sweater even more than I expected to," admitted a pleasantly surprised reviewer. "The knit is heavyweight and so soft. I think this is going to be a major staple for me this year. Might even order in another color. It honestly feels like a very expensive piece, but was so much more affordable."

"Love the trenchie style and pockets," raved another happy shopper. "What surprised me most was how incredibly comfortable and soft it is."

Testified one new fan: "This literally holds up better than my J.Crew cardigans. Will be repurchasing and buying additional colors."

"Beautiful sweater coat!" said this cheeky consumer. "Fits and looks exactly as I wanted, a little slouchy but not sloppy. After trying it on, I immediately ordered another one in grey. Can be dressed up or down. Perfect weight for Florida winters, or San Francisco summers (when I go home to visit my family)!"

"I like this sweater jacket," opined a discriminating wearer. "The only thing is that the seam runs down the middle of the back. Not a huge issue. I really like how it fits and it looks very nice with leggings, dress pants or jeans! I paired it with a pink pashmina. Very sharp."

Choose from 21 different colors in sizes XS to 2XL.
