Get this team & reader favorite jacket before it’s gone – AGAIN! 🙌🏼

If you’ve been eyeing this team favorite quilted jacket, now’s the time to snag it as it’s finally on sale again!

Since the first time we posted about this jacket, several team members including Collin, have purchased it and fallen in love! I scooped one up over a year ago because I was so excited to find out this popular jacket is an exact lookalike to this high-end Free People Dolman Quilted Knit Jacket! The difference? Try over $159!?! 🤑


Can you tell which is worth $198??

Forever 21 Quilted Zip-Up Jacket (left) Only $45 (regularly $64.99)!

Although I think the Forever 21 version is even more fashionable in person, I wanted you to see the incredible resemblance for yourself! They both have a full zipper ✔️, funnel neck collar ✔️, and that super-trendy all-over quilted pattern ✔️! Plus, the dupe is actually available in more color options than the Free People one!

This is the only jacket you’ll need from now until winter!

It may seem like the temperatures are still warm, but between late-night walks on the beach, camping trips up north, and not to mention those unbearably cold offices 🥶, you know you’ll still want to be well-prepared with a jacket wherever you go.

The quilted pattern gives this jacket a very slight puff (like a real quilt) for cozy, blanket-like warmth, but is loose enough, with almost ‘oversized’ sleeves, that it’s still breathable so you’re not sweating. Plus, I found it to be super travel-friendly as it rolls/ folds up so nicely!

This jacket clearly gets the job done in the warmth department ✅ but what I love most about this jacket is how versatile it is! Everything about it- the shape, the cut, the color, the pattern is on trend and I have found it pairs with everything I wear from shorts to sundresses!

Style your jacket even more ways like this: When wearing dresses/ dressier outfits try draping the jacket over your shoulders for a classic ladylike look. I was also inspired by the stock images to roll the sleeves for that effortlessly posh casual look and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!

Collin was so impressed with this jacket, too!

This jacket exceeded my expectations! The quality is AMAZING. It’s not too thin, has just the right amount of weight, and looks so cute on. And you so CANNOT beat the price!


And check out these AWESOME reader reviews too…

Bought this jacket last year during the sale and I LOVE it. Super comfy and keeps me warm. My husband who said it “looked like a grandma’s quilt” even put it on and said it was extremely comfortable lol – Hip Reader, Desire


I’m a huge Free People fan. We ordered two of these jackets and the quality was surprisingly fantastic! – HIp Reader, Sarah


I bought 2 of these back when it was 1st posted and absolutely love them! – Hip Reader, Dgal

👋🏼 And let me be super transparent here for a sec, friends! When we first shared this post, I was not asked to purchase this jacket. I was actually the one who wrote up the original deal 😂 AND after seeing it recommended by a favorite influencer of mine weeks before (though it was OOS at the time!), I knew I had to scoop it up immediately while I was deal-writing for all of you 🤣🤣

In all honesty, I always catch myself eyeing Free People apparel, but oh the prices! 🤑 I could not believe I was able to score this incredible look-alike dupe for a much more wallet-friendly price.

    Love it! Got one for my daughter. Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! You’re welcome! Hope she loves it! ❤️💞

  2. Susan

    Since this is a store for juniors…how does their sizing run? I’m assuming small? I”ve never bought anything from Forever 21 so not sure.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Susan! This jacket is true to size and has an oversized, slouchy fit. Chelsey above is wearing an XS. She is 5’5″ and let me know it fit her perfectly. 💖 Hope that is helpful!

    • Dgal

      I bought 2 of these the last time they were on sale and my daughter also bought 1. I usually wear a large but ordered this in a medium and it’s still quite big. I’d order a small next time.

    • Melanie

      It’s very oversized! I bought a medium last year since that it what I wear in jackets and it’s huge! Bought a small this year and still super roomy for bulky sweaters underneath. Side note, I am 45 and a little curvy.

  3. Carrie

    I ordered 2 as Christmas gifts! I think my teen daughter & niece will really like this jacket. Thanks for posting.

  4. Dgal

    I bought 2 of these back when it was 1st posted and absolutely love them!

  5. Kaylee

    My daughter loves it!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO glad to hear that, Kaylee! Thanks for commenting! 🥰

  6. Lisa

    That’s it! I’m officially OLD. I can’t like this style, to me it looks shabby and sloppy. And Hey Dudes will always look like Nurse Ratched shoes to me. Enjoy your youth Hip2Savers – I’ll just sit over here in my rocking chair, grumbling. LOL

    • Manda

      😂🤣 I’m old too!

  7. Allison

    What is the difference between the jacket that is $45 and the one that is $33? Thank you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Allison! The option for $45 has a cotton / polyester blend for the shell and lining. It is also available in more color options as well as extended sizes. Hoping that is helpful! 🤗💞

      • Raelyn

        In the above pictures, what color is Collin wearing? Is that color not offered anymore?

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          I’ll double check on this for you, Raelyn! 💞

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hello again! That color option is not available now. Hoping they re-stock it soon! ❤️🤞

      • Allison

        Thank you for the clarification!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome!

  8. VickB

    Why is Collin so cute! I literally cannot with how cute she is, she models better than the f21 girls!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I agree VickB! SO cute! 😍 Thanks for the sweet comment.
