Banana Republic Feather Sweater Look for Less

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:

A wallet friendly feather sweater look inspired by Banana Republic.

  1. Feather top // Dillard’s – Changing up the white top for a classy striped version with black feathers.
  2. 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.
  3. Feather necklace // Shoptiques – I couldn’t help myself.  This is a playful, yet sophisticated outfit–just like this necklace.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
