It's officially sweater weather. We've found an awesome piece that not only works for the drastically dropping temperatures, but also dramatically ups your style. The soft 'n' slouchy Imily Bela Women's Kimono Batwing Cable-Knitted Cardigan exudes effortless cool, and it's on sale at Amazon for $46, down from $60. That's a great price for something that shoppers swear you'll "wear every day."
More than 7,000 fans have given this cozy cardigan a perfect five-star rating, lauding its unique look, great quality and dreamy comfort — and some especially love how it covers the bum! With 18 gorgeous hues, it's harder than you might expect to pick a fave (which is why many shoppers don't stop at one). Read on for musings from pleased wearers about why this cardigan is so dear to them.
A flattering fit
Fans sizes small to extra-large are loving how they look in this boho-chic sweater.
"A wardrobe must-have," wrote a five-star reviewer. "As soon as I put it on, I didn't want to take it off. It's super cozy — perfect for lounging indoors on a cold day or to wear out over a cute and casual outfit! The fit is so flattering...Currently adding more colors to my cart!"
The forgiving drape of this piece "hides a myriad of flaws," said one happy customer, while the wide band at the bottom hugs your rear, adding a little structure and shape.
"Covers your butt, but also short in front to show off legs and y’all boots," wrote another enthusiastic shopper. "Awesome quality too."
Seriously, what can't you wear this with? Shoppers are pairing the Imily Bela cardigan with everything from dresses to leggings and shorts. And they're wearing it year-round.
"Love love love the kimono style," said a thrilled wearer. "Super cute with my cut-off jean shorts and boho blouse on a chilly summer morning in the midwest... AMAZING FIND!!!"
"You will wear it every day," promised another. "It isn’t just the cutest and coolest sweater on Amazon, it is also the warmest!...Looks adorable over a fall dress, vintage tee and jeans, with black leggings and a turtleneck, with pajamas..."
Another superfan suggests: "You could add a belt also, which I have, and it’s super cute with jeans."
Top comfort and quality
Shoppers are also happy with the feel of the garment. The soft acrylic-and-cotton sweater is machine washable (yay!). And it cuts the chill without being too bulky.
"It’s amazingly soft and fits beautifully," one shopper commented. "It almost makes me excited about cold weather! The quality is very good and the feel is just right (not too thin or too bulky)."
Other customers were equally taken aback by the caliber of this Amazon find.
One wrote: "It is oversized without being 'trash baggy" like so many other sweaters are. The knit is beautiful and is well made. It's not too light, which I like, but perfect over a long-sleeve tee. If you are looking for a stylish open cardigan, this is it! I've gotten so many compliments, and one person even said, 'you got that on Amazon?!?' Yes yes yes to this sweater!"
