Recessionista: Coco Lite
Chanel is a one of a kind label; made so well and can't be copied the same way...but...retail chain Zara managed to replicate the luxe label's staple jacket so lovingly in cream. With a price point of $149, the coat might be hard to snag, but if you're lucky, someone either returned one to Zara or they had a random jacket sitting around the store in your size.
The lining is chiffon - so delicate and lovely! You can wear with a layered long tank top and jeans or for a date with a nice top. The knit sleeves are roomy but also very tapered to the arm. Great fit, excellent evergreen piece and worth slapping down another shopper if need be to own it! To find a Zara store near you, click here.
