Between remote working, online schooling and virtual hangouts, who could have predicted we’d be spending so much time at home this year? Collectively, we’ve figured out how to adapt, and that includes adjusting the way we dress.

‘Chic comfort’ has been the theme of 2020, and some hot trends are now taking hold. For instance, coatigans — cardigans that double as coats — have been one of the MVPs of the WFH life. Searches for coatigans spiked this year by more than 50 percent, according to a new trend report by ShopStyle.

It’s no secret why the coatigan craze is sweeping the country. These blanket-like sweaters are extra long, extra warm and they’re the perfect thing to throw on for a quick trip to the store. They also make you look a little dressed up at home when you’re tempted to just stay in your pajamas all day.

We found five coatigans Amazon customers can hardly live without — and they’re all on sale, starting at $19! Get wrapped up in these toasty top layers stat.

Love the teddy bear fleece trend? This plush coatigan comes close with its signature furry look. One of almost 1,400 five-star Amazon reviewers called it “the softest cardigan you’ll own,” while another fan said, “OMG!! This sweater is luscious, soft, cozy, warm.....it is simply AMAZING!...I was in love the minute I opened it! I'm definitely going to order a few more in other colors!”

The affordable, knee-length QIXING coatigan comes in 17 colors, in fact, from neutral khaki or black to more spicy hues like wine red or royal blue. It’s also 24 percent off in most cases. This creature comfort will be in heavy rotation practically all year.

It’s not every day that you find a top layer that dazzles yet also feels like you’re wrapped up in a blanket. This coatigan accomplishes both — and it’s $3 with the on-page coupon. We love it in lumberjack plaid — another of the year’s biggest trends — but it also comes in leopard prints and solids. This one arrives before Christmas, so if you really want to dial up your holiday outfit, pick it up in red-and-white reindeer print!

“This is a super cute, trendy and fun sweater,” wrote one of more than 4,300 five-star Amazon reviewers. “It’s oversized but not sloppy, and the material is very soft. It’s a great, inexpensive way to try the leopard trend.”

The Zesica coatigan is up to 25 percent off in certain colors and patterns. With others, you can apply a $3 on-page coupon.

This incredibly plush fleece hoodie is cozy enough to cocoon yourself in for months but chic enough to leave the house in — and you don’t need a hat, either! It’s like a Snuggie you can wear outside, and Amazon shoppers seriously don’t want to take it off.

Look no further,” wrote another, who added that it’s perfect for “any...situation where you want to look cute as heck and still be warm and comfortable.”
