Oversized shearling/ aviator style jackets are going to continue being big news throughout the cold weather. So I thought it be only fair to share the best priced dupe out there.
If you aren’t aware of the hype surrounding this seasons must have Acne Studios Velocite jacket where have you been?! Costing £2000 and impossible to get hold of it has been the most coveted item of last year (well this and those furry Gucci loafers).
For me this isn’t even a wish list item, it’s something that’d go on my dream list and never actually be a reality. It’s an amazing jacket and you can definitely see the trend trickling through onto the highstreet. Oversized shearling/ aviator style jackets are going to continue being big news throughout the cold weather. So I thought it be only fair to share the best priced dupe out there.
This one from Forever 21 is the best Acne Studios dupe jacket out there in terms of pice tag and overall look. I’m going to be honest and say you ultimately get what you pay for. Personally I think it’s a steal at £50 (it has literally just been REDUCED IN THE SALE TO £33.99!!), although if I’m honest the quality isn’t fantastic and the fabric does feel synthetic, particularly the faux suede, but at least it’s not £2000 people!!
I purchased it in a size large as I wanted it oversized to mimic the Acne Studios version as much as possible. At the moment I’m loving it thrown over everything and anything. My favourite look is with a chunky knit sweater so it’s super warm and very cosy.
I can only find it available in black or teal on the Forever 21 website but if I’m honest I think it’s actually nicer in black than my camel shade. I would definitely grab it while you still can if you’re searching for a super duper jacket and lets be honest who isn’t during freezing February?
Missguided also have a pretty good one which comes in a camel shade but they seem to be continually sold out. Plus it’s a bit more money and doesn’t have the waist belt which is favourite detail.
