Say hello to your new at-home (or outside — we’re not judging) winter wardrobe because this week, Kmart dropped another version of its Oodie dupe.
If you’re not familiar with what an Oodie is, it’s essentially a wearable blanket. And while an official Oodie retails for about $79 and is by the brand with the same name, started by two Australian brothers, there are countless copycat versions — one of them being Kmart’s.
Last year, the discount retailer had released another version of it with a price tag of $29, but, unsurprisingly, the wearable blanket quickly sold out. Then this week, Kmart quietly restocked, just in time for the temperatures dropping.
Called the Pull Over Gown, the blanket comes in three styles, dark blue (Midnight), a print of sloths hanging from trees (Sloth) and flowers (Floral), with two sizes, S/M and L/XL.
While it’s no doubt less soft against your skin and a bit thinner than the original Oodie – which you’d expect, given it’s a fraction of the price – it still does the trick of keeping you warm your top-half warm and toasty.
It’s knee length, comes with long sleeves with ribbed cuffs and has a handy pocket at the front so you can store your phone or, you know, snacks.
As of right now, the wearable does seem to be available in-stores — you can check stock on the Kmart website — but you’ll want to act fast because if last time is anything to go by, it’s likely to sell out.
If you do miss out, though, might I suggest you consider investing in the real thing, an official Oodie? If you calculate cost per wear, honestly, it’s still a bargain. Here are three of our favourites.
Avocado Oodie, $79
An ode to our favourite breakfast meal, the Avocado Oodie is one of our top pattern choices. The avocado and toast just look so happy together!
I Love Plants Oodie, $84
Our house plants may be suffering from receiving too much love right now, but the I Love Plants Oodie ($79) is the ideal way to pay homage to our plant babies (without overdoing it with the TLC).
Koala Oodie, $69 – $84
