For many years, I had a deep and abiding infatuation with Chanel jackets. The real deal was exponentially out of my price range, even second-hand from ebay. So I was frequently on the lookout for what I referred to as “Chanel-esque” jackets from mid-priced lines, until I finally figured out that this often boxy style of jacket just doesn’t suit me. But I still can appreciate the look and the effort. And yes, I know that the materials, the construction, the fit will be a universe away from the original.
I happened to stop by our local Zara a few days ago, and it seemed that there were Chanel-esque jackets everywhere I turned.
They have several more options; you can see all jackets here.
J.Crew also has thrown their bouclé’d sleeve into the ring.
At a higher price point, I’d bet Lafayette 148 will deliver a bit more quality and fit:
This style of jacket is best suited to those with more boyish, or at least small-busted silhouettes. But if bouclé makes your heart beat faster, there are lots of options available right now at a range of price points.
