Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks This $895 Hoodie Blazer Is A Good Idea...

Of course she does. Because she is Gwyneth Paltrow, queen of all things absurd and out of touch. Need we remind you about her holiday gift guide which featured a $3,800 handbag and a $1,000 iPhone Horn Amplifier (WTF is that anyway?).

Okay, let’s back up. Gwyneth just debuted a new collab collection on GOOP with Veronica Beard and in addition to a pair of cropped leggings ($495) and peasant dress ($695), the line features a blazer with a hoodie built in. Now we could see how that might be cute, but what isn’t cute is the price. The exclusive Veronica Beard navy blazer with french terry hood costs $895.

The main selling point of the blazer is that the hoodie is detachable. According to the description, “The key to this navy blazer is in the grey french terry hood, which can be left in or zipped out depending on the occasion. Wear with the warm hoodie over jeans for your casual day-to-day and take out when things get a little more formal. ” Clever? Yes, we’ll give Gwyneth and Veronica that. But worth $895. We think not.

What about you? Would you spend $895 on this hoodie blazer which you could actually just recreate with a blazer and hoodie you already own? Let us know in the comments.

Something GOOP-approved that we can get behind? These Rag & Bone jeans and her Alice + Olivia handbag.
