Save or Splurge?, Vol. 3: Field Jacket

Save or Splurge? is a post where I’ll show you an item from Target and its higher end version that probably inspired it.

Way less glam on this Save or Splurge post than our first two posts (pave bracelet- here, sequin skirt – here). Field jackets were big last spring and fall, and I have a feeling that they are going to be wore all over this spring too. The color of these jackets is a perfect neutral without being so black or tan boring. And on first look, these jackets are identical twins. On the right is the Target version (retails for $40) and on the left is the original field jacket from J. Crew (sells for $148).

I have a feeling I am going to be buying the Target version real soon. I’m trying to make an effort to stay away from black jackets and recently got a navy quilted jacket from Old Navy. This field jacket would be perfect for a light layer when I visit my younger brother in San Francisco or even on a early summer day here in Indiana.

Would you rock a field jacket? If not, what kind of jacket are you looking for this coming spring?
