All the features I love about the Acne version are also in this purse friendly dupe.


Winter is beginning to slowly creep in.  There is a crispness in the air and although we’re not quite at coat weather yet, we’re definitely headed there.  Despite it not quite being cold enough I wanted to chat about this AMAZING snuggly jacket that I recently bought from ZARA because I know it’s going to be a sell out and I don’t want you to miss out on it!

ZARA Acne Jacket Coat

Last winter I spoke about the Acne Studios Velocite jacket and how much I love it but the crazy price tag means I will sadly never own it.  I thought I had found the perfect dupe from Forever 21 (which you can see HERE) but this jacket just blew that one out the water.

All the features I love about the Acne version are also in this purse friendly dupe.  In case you’re wondering just how price friendly it is, it’s £89.99.  It’s perfectly oversized, so incredibly warm and looks super cool on.  I’m obsessed!  I know ZARA quality can be a bit hit and miss but this is definitely on the better end.  The faux fur does feel slightly synthetic but the incredible weight and sturdiness of this jacket more than makes up for it.  It definitely has the weight of a real shearling jacket.  Is it terrible I’m wishing for cold weather so I can finally wear it out?!

In case you’re wondering about sizing I’m wearing an XS.  This is a bulky jacket and it will make you look much broader, so if you’re between sizes definitely size down.

I have not taken these amazing shoes off my feet since I bought them.  They are so comfortable and I’m so in love with them.  I got them from Net-a-Porter where they’ve pretty much sold out in this colour but they do have a gorgeous pink still in stock (which I also bought and love).  I just know I’ll be wearing these with everything from jeans to winter dresses.  Keep an eye out for a post featuring the pink ones soon.
