Need a light jacket this spring? You won’t want to take this Forever 21 quilted jacket off (and it totally looks like something from Free People!)

There’s nothing worse than chilly spring mornings that turn into sweltering afternoons, but sometimes I’d much rather bear the cold before I put on a… JACKET! 😖

That is until I scooped up this Quilted Zip-Up Jacket from Forever 21 about 4 months ago because, in addition to just screaming trendy, I was excited to find out this popular jacket is an exact dupe to this high-end Free People Dolman Quilted Knit Jacket! The difference? Try over $148!?! 😱

Even better, this popular quilted jacket is currently priced at $49.99! PLUS, you can use our exclusive code AFFEXTRA17 to save even more!

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!

Can you tell which is worth $198??

👋🏼 And let me be super transparent here for a sec, friends! Back in January when we first shared this dupe, 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 🤣🤣

Better yet, I am so pleased to say this jacket has exceeded my expectations in trendiness, functionality, & comfort! And might I add, it’s the PERFECT midweight jacket for spring! 🙌🏼


Here’s how to save BIG on this popular jacket dupe…

Women’s Quilted Zip-Up Jacket $49.99 – 11 color options!
Use promo code AFFEXTRA17
Final cost $41.49!

That’s a whopping $156.54 LESS than the Free People version!

I grabbed this jacket in the color brown and have found it pairs perfectly with all of my outfits, but I am also heavily eyeing that pink color (& the model’s cute floral pants)😍 so I can have a backup version of my beloved jacket for laundry days.

Keep in mind that shipping IS free on orders just $50 or more so you might just want to snag two as well and either have a backup like me or treat your best girlfriend to one! *cough, cough, Mother’s Day is also TWO WEEKS away!

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

It may seem like the temperatures are rising, 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 through spring/ summer. 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!

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.

    I have a quilted jacket from Ralph Lauren that I’ve been trying to sell on poshmark for a year and nothing, no interest. It’s so cute but I’m downsizing and I had mo idea this is a trend so I guess I should keep trying?
