Copycat JCrew Herringbone Vest

So, if you are an avid user of Pinterest or are part of the blogging community, then I’m sure you’re aware of the coveted herringbone vest from JCrew. I know you know which one I’m referring to.

Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to break the bank or be on a waiting list for months to get your hands on that vest. I found a close copycat to that ever popular vest at Wal-Mart. For $9.98.

No, this isn’t a joke.

 Vest: Wal-Mart (exact, currently sold out)

Black long-sleeve tee: Apt. 9, Kohl’s (exact)
Jeans: Old Navy (exact)
Ankle boots: Target (exact)
Sunnies: Coach Factory Outlet   

So, does the vest look exactly like the JCrew one? Absolutely not. Does it, however, fit comfortably and provide the same herringbone pattern effect? Absolutely. I’m all about saving money and finding a cheaper alternative to more expensive brands, and I think Wal-Mart hit this one right on the head. It currently is sold out online, but keep an eye out in stores and check the website often – they seem to be restocking that pattern frequently due to it’s popularity.
Also, I need to quickly discuss these ankle boots. Target just gets me. I had a very specific vision of the ankle boots that I wanted, and they delivered them to me. They are ridiculously comfortable, and they go with any outfit. I’m still figuring out the whole tucking jeans in/keeping them out/cuffing them situation, but I’m sure that will come with time and experience. In the meantime, I pretty much wear these booties any chance I get.
