Hi friends, I wanted to share this jacket that I’ve seen EVERYWHERE recently. My Instagram feed has been filled with multi colors (5 to be exact) of this adorable knit quilted lightweight jacket from Free People that is to die for. It’s no question Free People has a reputation for creating beautiful high quality clothes, but they’re also known for having a spendy price tag.
Which leads me to this amazing quilted zip-up dupe I found recently at Forever 21! It’s almost 1/4 the price and equally as cute! Both are on trend this season and will transition well between seasons! Main differences : zipper detailing on FP is gold, F21 is silver. FP jacket is distressed. F21 jacket has a hood. Pocket placement on each jacket is slightly different. Do you prefer the splurge or save option!?
*UPDATE – I found a 2nd option for a dupe that I like EVEN MORE than the Forever 21 Version & it’s from Target! Only $40 & such great quality. It is VERY similar to the Forever 21 jacket, both have hoods, diamond style quilting and pockets on the outside. However, the Target jacket has an elastic wrist detail & more distressing like the Free People version that gives it the vintage lived in feel. Target also has a lot more color options (8) & they have frequent restocks.
