Amazon Prime Day: The Best of Fashion

October 13, 2020


Erin Schrader

If there’s one thing we can’t deny, it’s our love for Amazon Prime. There’s just something about that extremely fast [free] shipping, the insane amount of random and highly useful items you can find, and our most beloved two days of the year [well aside from Christmas, my birthday, you know – the good stuff], Amazon Prime Day! Add in the fact that you can now shop your entire wardrobe with a few clicks of a button and well, we’re sold. We got word that there is a whole lot [we’re talking a lot] of Amazon Fashion included in this year’s sale and we’re here for it. Whether you’re shopping all that Amazon Fashion has to offer or prefer to stick to their private owned brands [Goodthreads, Daily Ritual, and Amazon Essentials being a few of our personal faves] there’s truly something for everybody at prices that are *almost* too good to be true.

Before we dive into our top picks of items on sale today, be sure to join us over at LIY Amazon Finds & Fails Facebook Group where we’ll be showcasing all of the best deals over the next two days AND be sure to join us for a fun try-on session FB Live of the items you see below this morning around the 11 am EST hour on our Facebook Page! Oh and hey – we realize there’s a lot more to Amazon Prime Day than just fashion – we’ve got you covered with ALL of our top picks across all categories over hereNow, let’s get this runway show [ish] started 😉

Erin – Core 10 Lightweight Insulated Run Vest

Core 10 Lightweight Insulated Run Vest [true to size, wearing in small] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Cole Haan Sneakers [true to size]

Again with Core 10 — this vest doesn’t disappoint! Not only does it look sleek and stylish, but it’s also highly functional! It is lightweight which allows it to not be bulky. The quality is here and it’s perfect for layering all spring and fall long!

Levi’s Skinny Jeans

Levi’s Skinny Jeans [size up if in between, wearing in 27 in blue spice] // Pullover [true to size, wearing in small] // Cole Haan Sneakers [true to size]

In all of my years of wearing jeans, I haven’t worn many Levi’s. When I spotted these at this price, I knew I couldn’t resist! They are quite comfortable and I love the length for my 5’4 self! They also have some distressing but not too much which I like!

Core 10 Leggings with Pockets

Core 10 Leggings with Pockets [true to size, wearing in small] // Cole Haan Sneakers [true to size]

If you are buying one thing on Prime day, make it be Core 10 leggings! I recommend these to all of my friends and family as the quality is incredible, they stay in great shape wash after wash [note: I air dry] and they are so comfortable! I love this pair that has pockets on both sides which allows you to put your phone, keys, etc in there as needed!

Lark & Ro Bateau Long Sleeve Sweater    

Lark & Ro Bateau Long Sleeve Sweater [true to size, wearing in small] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Steve Madden Booties [true to size]

Whenever I spot a top that I can wear with my beloved Spanx leggings, I’m sold. This Lark & Ro sweater thankfully allows me to do just that. It’s a great weight and high quality and my favorite trait – legging friendly for me at 5’4!

Amazon Essentials Oversized Coat

Amazon Essentials Oversized Coat [size down one, wearing in XS] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Steve Madden Booties [true to size]

If you’ve never bought any Amazon Essentials items, I totally recommend for all of the best basics! This coat being one of them! It is definitely an oversized fit so I would recommend sizing down! I love the classic style of it and that it is a little dressier of a look for dinners out or events this winter!

Daily Ritual Ultra-Soft Crewneck Sweater 

Daily Ritual Ultra-Soft Crewneck Sweater [true to size, wearing in small] // Levi’s Jeans [size up if in between] // Steve Madden Booties [true to size]

Holy soft. They weren’t kidding when they named this sweater “ultra-soft”. It is what dreams are made of when it comes to fabrics. It’s also a great weight [not too heavy, not too thin]! This is a must!

Core 10 Build Your Own Onstride Leggings

Core 10 Build Your Own Onstride Leggings [true to size, wearing in small short] // Backcountry Jacket [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Similar New Balance sneakers [true to size]

It’s no surprise that these leggings were a top choice in our athletic legging comparison at the beginning of the year! I also deemed these one of my all-time favorite Amazon items. Like I mentioned with other Core 10 items, the quality is 100% and the wearability is even better! I love the breathable mesh fabric on the legs in these and the option to zip at the ankle!

ASTR Asymmetric Cutout Sweater

ASTR Asymmetric Cutout Sweater [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Spanx Faux Leather Leggings [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Steve Madden Booties [true to size]

Hello, date night. This cutout sweater has just the right amount of sex appeal written all over it. It’s a nice chunky sweater that can take you into winter and pairs perfectly with those faux leather leggings we all can’t get over.

JAG Carter Girlfriend Jeans

JAG Carter Girlfriend Jeans [size down if in between, wearing in 2] // Old Navy tank [size down if in between] // Converse Shoreline [true to size]

I first shared these this summer and so many of you jumped on the train and bought a pair while simultaneously falling in love with them. If you’ve never tried a pair of girlfriend jeans before, these could be a great place to start! Also, how fun is the cuff detail? Take me to a baseball game, I’m ready…

Cassidy – Alo Yoga Cropped Half Zip Sherpa + Core 10 High Waist Leggings 

Alo Yoga Cropped Half Zip Sherpa [size up if in between] Core 10 High Waist Leggings [TTS] Adidas Sneakers [size down if in between]

Athleisure, where would we be without you? I think we all know that Core 10 high waist leggings are a tried and true favorite of LIY–and what better time to buy them than Prime Day! If you are a fitness fanatic or an athleisure enthusiast, get your hands on these leggings, you won’t be disappointed! I paired them with this cropped half zip sherpa that I have come to love! Being a pear body shape, I hate when clothing hits right at my hips so I love trying out some “cropped” looks! This item is definitely a splurge item, hence why I waited from Prime Day to purchase! I love throwing it on with leggings or high waisted jeans!

Lauren – Amazon Essentials Women’s Oversized Open Front Knee Length Sweater Coat

Amazon Essentials Women’s Oversized Open Front Knee Length Sweater Coat [size down, wearing in small] // Lark & Ro Women’s Long Sleeve V-Neck Pull Over Tunic Top [TTS] // Levi’s Women’s 311 Shaping Skinny Jeans [TTS]

Casual Fridays, brunch with friends, or working from home, these pieces cover all your bases! I’m a sucker for a duster length cardigan, and this oversized sweater version will be great with joggers around the house, but also will be a great added layer while out and about! Layer it over stretchy Levi’s and a dressier top, and you’ll feel put together while still being comfortable!

Hannah – Levi’s 721 High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans

The Drop Square Neck Balloon Sleeve Top [Size up if in between, wearing in Small] // Levi’s 721 High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans [Size up if in between, wearing in Culture Corner color] // Sam Edelman Stillson Pumps [TTS]

Oh man do I love this outfit! The perfect denim paired with a not so basic top can take you to drinks with friends, date night, or running errands! There’s just something about a pair of Levi’s jeans and this pair is so good! And this top, can’t get enough of it! I love the square neckline, balloon sleeves, and the fit of this one!

Katy – Levi’s Wedgie Skinny Jeans

Levi’s Perfect T-Shirt [size up for more relaxed fit, wearing XS, Serif Logo Caviar Caviar] // Levi’s Wedgie Skinny Jeans [true to size, wearing 2, Pacific Waves] // Heeled Sandals [true to size, wearing 8]

Head to [almost] toe Levi’s! These are true blue, blue jeans, no stretch here, but I love the way they fit. Where logo tee meets graphic tee –  I thought this one added a chic, fun vibe to this look! These heels were a fun way to elevate this casual look. They aren’t super high which I like, but they are still formal enough to wear to a wedding or special event.

Steph – ASTR Chunky Cable Knit Sweater

ASTR Chunky Cable Knit Sweater [size up, wearing in L] / Good American Good Legs Jeans [TTS, wearing in 10] / Similar Booties

It’s Prime Day – I thought I should step outside of my normal a bit and try wearing some color. To be fair, this sweater hardly counts because there are very few things I love more than Fall and the flavors of it – so dressing in the color of Pumpkin is not too much of a stretch. HOWEVER, I don’t normally go for chunky sweaters, or shorter sweaters so I’m giving myself points there. Here’s what I can say about this sweater – I LOVE the sleeves and the cozy comfiness that I am thinking can only be found in a chunky sweater. I also feel like my chest is taking up more than its fair share of the space, so while I do love it – I would recommend it for ladies who aren’t supporting such large cargo up top if you know what I mean.

Becca – Corduroy Sherpa Jacket

Corduroy Sherpa Jacket [TTS, wearing Iced Coffee Warm in XS] // Mockneck Sweater [TTS, wearing Black in XS] // Black Jeans [Consider Sizing Down if in Between] // Booties [Similar Option 1 // Similar Option 2]

Has anyone else binge-watched Virgin River? It took me a few episodes and then I was hooked! Anyway, Mel is one classy lady and she wears a jacket a few times throughout the show that reminds me of this one! That along with the fact that it is giving me all sorts of nostalgic vibes from high school that I just had to add to cart! And I have to say, it is OH so warm! The sherpa lines the whole body of the coat and I cannot imagine being one single bit chilly when slipping on this jacket! Comes in a few different colors corduroy and several washes of denim, and allows you to take your denim jacket look right into fall and winter time without freezing to death! It’s a win-win!

Claire – V-Neck Sweater

Lark & Ro Long Sleeve V Neck Sweater [size up if in between, wearing medium in Olive] // High Waist Skinny Jeans [TTS] // Similar Mules 

I’m all about the classic closet staples that’ll work season after season. When it comes to the basics, I’m okay spending a little bit more for comfort and quality. But it’s your lucky day, you can score this one for a steal. 😉 While this one is wool, it’s super soft and cozy without being scratchy or too warm– trust me on that one, I run HOT. It’s a great everyday sweater for the season and comes in a ton of different colors. Size up if in between, wearing medium here!

Claire – Denim Trucker Jacket

Levi’s Women’s Original Trucker Jacket [size up if in between, wearing medium in Dirt on My Boots] // V-Neck Hoodie [TTS, wearing medium] //  High Waist Skinny Jeans [TTS] // Similar Sneaker

Ever since this cute little number arrived on my doorstep, it’s been getting worn on repeat. Seriously, every. single. outfit. If you too love a great denim jacket, black denim is a fun way to shake it up for fall. And as you probably already know, Levi’s can do no wrong. This one doesn’t have much stretch [in a good way, it holds its shape well], so just be sure to size up if in between!

share this with your best girlfriends:
