Hello there 🙂
Last month, on a whim, I ordered three Amazon basics, took photos and wrote mini-reviews. I thought it was fun so let's do it again! This time I felt drawn to cozy pieces, just in time for the first big cold snap of the year (last night it was 23 degrees where I live). I came across three new foundations of Amazon Fashion's own brands again and I have to say I'm pretty happy with my choices.
Today, for most of us, it is the top priority when it comes to clothing. In my book, cosiness means that both comfort and warmth are present and taken into account. The cozy fashion offers from Amazon are extensiveto say the least, but I didn't have a hard time deciding on a wrap buffer (yes, wrap), fun rib knit top, and light turtleneck sweater. All of them were cozy, indeed, and some looked cuter than others. (I told you it was unfiltered, didn't I?) So let's get started.
Scroll to buy my cozy pics as well as a few more competitors that caught my eye.
My review: The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped this ribbed knit top was that it was surprisingly thick and warm. I was happy about it because I don't like fitted tops that are too thin and clingy. With its balloon sleeves and square neck, this definitely falls under the trendy basics category, which I'm never against. I ordered a small size above which is my usual size and I was happy with the fit. If you want a little more fit, definitely go down a size, but it was the perfect amount of fit for me and it fitted in nicely. (Please excuse the dramatic posing below, I just wanted to show off the fun sleeves.)
My review: I love a good buffer and that's where I found one fancy Buffer. At first, I was very impressed with how expensive the jacket looked, especially at $ 85. The material is nice and smooth and matte and it doesn't crease at all. I haven't worn it in the cold air yet, but I could tell it will keep you warm, but maybe not on the coldest cold days. The tie around the waist was definitely a nice touch, especially if you think puffers are usually not particularly flattering. (I experimented with tying it in the front and back, but ended up preferring the front.) Although I wanted the black jacket, it was sold out when I ordered the small size, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the navy, as i found it looks better in person than it does on the website.
My review: Of the three, this was probably my least favorite product, but I don't necessarily think it was the sweater's fault. I liked that it was thin yet warm and the turtleneck sweater is chic, but the longer length made it look strangely pulled down (since it's not oversized) and there was a little too much material to tuck into. That means, I think if I had ordered the x-small as opposed to the small, it would have been more suitable and I would have just put it in everything. So the verdict is, if you want a good, replica turtleneck, just downsize it and plan on dragging it in or wearing it with leggings.
Next up are the $ 44 Amazon leggings that I've worn for almost three years in a row.
