I saw this image recently while perusing Banana Republic. I was instantly drawn to the feather sweater. I was not, however, drawn to the $198 price tag. I can’t understand why someone would pay close to $200 for a sweater with lots of fringe on it. Like, I need someone who has bought this to explain to me why/where you’d wear it/why/what are you doing when you wear it/why/who are you wearing it in front of/why. It does look chic, and I think it’d be perfect for work. But, that still doesn’t justify $200. You can probably grab it on sale this week, but if not I was able to find a cheaper look that is just as stylish as the original:
- Feather top // Dillard’s – Changing up the white top for a classy striped version with black feathers.
- Cardigan // LOFT – This cardigan hits right above the waist. Since the hemline is shorter than other cardigans, and because it has side slits, it won’t interfere with the feathers.
- Feather necklace // Shoptiques – I couldn’t help myself. This is a playful, yet sophisticated outfit–just like this necklace.
- Capris // Macy’s – Bringing in blue gives the outfit a bit more dimension. I realize it may be winter where you live (I wouldn’t understand that; I’m typing this up in Florida on December 26 at 10:30pm with the A/C on), so blue pants (on sale!) may work better for you.
- Shoes // Sole Society – The best, right? Stripes might as well be a neutral to me. They are also available in leopard, gingham, and silver (!).
Here are a few other feather/fringe tops. All five of the tops are under $40. The gray sweater is $70.
