Cold days now have us reaching for a snuggly layer, and the mega-popular Merokeety sweater is just what the weather forecast ordered. And we can see why it's getting so much love: The soft and stretchy feel combined with the slouchy, relaxed look — with pockets! — makes it feel like a warm hug. The long style is great for layering over T-shirts and blouses. Plus, it comes in 32 colors in sizes small to XX-large, and it's on double discounts right now for Black Friday courtesy of an on-page coupon.
Why is this a good Black Friday deal?
This super-soft cardigan, which has garnered some 18,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, is just $32 (originally $50) with the on-page coupon. Aside from Prime Day, this is one of the best prices we've seen it marked down to, so take your pick of the many colors and even give one (or two!) as a gift — especially now that the holidays are just around the corner.
Why do I need this?
The bold colors (plum! orange!) are always fun choices, while basic shades of black, maroon and gray work with any outfit for long holiday weekends, Sunday brunch or days at the office. Dress one up with a skirt and heels or keep it casual with jeans and sneakers. And everyone wants to look good and feel good in their work wear, as they do in this sweater.
The Merokeety is good for right now as winter approaches (snuggled up with a cup of coffee) and later (breezy spring afternoons as the flowers make their return). Customers love how this long, lovely cardigan goes with virtually everything in their wardrobe, from leggings to jeans to dresses. But the best thing about this cozy piece might just be the way it lets you regulate the temperature in an instant, especially when the weather is in transition.
What reviewers say:
“So soft and cuddly," wrote one five-star fan. "I love this! ... I wear it for work, out and about or even just at home to feel snuggled up! Very happy with this purchase.”
Another five-star reviewer wrote: “Super comfy! So many compliments. Fits true to size and is washer/dryer-friendly. I wear this to the office once a week — just need to order another one.”
This happy customer noted: “Nice, oversized sherpa cardigan. Warm and has pockets! Works great for cool summer nights over a tank or in-between layers during fall and winter months.”
“It is the perfect weight and is very soft!" raved another shopper. "Will be good for fall, winter and spring ... Washed beautifully! Looks great! Glad I bought two!"
And one fashionista had a few tips on how to best wear your cardi. "I wear it out on casual days with jeans and boots. Or around the house on chilly days to cuddle in. I also hand wash mine in cold water, then lay it out to dry. When it’s about halfway dry, I’ll put it in the dryer. I don’t want to mess it up."
One thing to keep in mind? "[You] must wash before you wear," advised one reviewer. "I was wearing it over black, fluff everywhere! Besides that, great sweater."
Another chilly weather layering essential? A classic crewneck, and we love this one from Hanes (also on sale):
"A great sweatshirt," raved a reviewer. "Perfect weight for the spring and fall weather. Ordered a size up so I could wear with leggings, and it’s perfect so [I] ordered another color."
