This week: Lately I have been searching for a Chanel-style cropped boucle jacket. I am pretty open when it comes to color, but I want it to have that smart look that a Chanel jacket has. Also, I don’t have a lot of loot, so something under $200 would be perfect. – Renee
Hi Renee. We love Chanel jackets, but it is no secret that they don’t meet the requirements of a lot of budgets. Luckily, there are plenty of great options for you. For instance, Zara’s Structured Blazer ($90) and Zara’s Zips Blazer ($70) are both great options at a great price. Newport News’s Boxy Tweed Jacket ($69) is really chic, as is Vero Moda’s Boucle Tweed Jacket ($104). Finally, ASOS’s Boucle Jacket ($107) is perfect if you want color. Good luck!
