You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
When we first reported on the Orolay puffer, it was still under $100 (and still mostly under the radar). Not long after, the coat went viral (quite viral), and demand drove the price up to $140, where it’s sat steadily since. Today, though, as part of Amazon Prime Day, the Orolay coat is on sale for up to 56 percent off, the cheapest it’s been all year.
A good deal, we think, especially considering the fact that our winter of outdoor socializing is fast approaching. This coat — whose 11,000 reviews tend to focus on how “cozy” and “warm” it is for its relatively reasonable price, and which has pockets aplenty for your masks and to-go bottles of hand sanitizer — sure beats a blanket. But move fast, because it’s a lightning deal, meaning it won’t be around for long. (And for more Prime Day fashion deals — cozy coats, included — here’s the rest of our coverage.)
