Last spring, the Rebecca Minkoff “Becky Jacket” ($368) was one of the season’s hottest items for regular gals and celebrities alike–we’d be lying if we said we didn’t own one, and celebrities such as Sophia Bush, Beyonce, and Christina Applegate stepped out in various shades of the fun blazer. With a fun asymmetrical hem, a shawl collar, and availability in every color and pattern under the sun, there was plenty to love in this versatile, (relatively) affordable piece.
This spring, Jessica Simpson has made her own version of the blazer. The Jessica Simpson “Dalton Jacket” retails for $79 and other than some discrepancies in quality (the Rebecca Minkoff version is 100% silk, Simpson’s is rayon), the cut and style seems identical.
What do you think–at less than a quarter the price, would you wear Simpson’s version?
