We love Janelle Monae for her sky-high hair and cool, fearless style. So when she stepped out on the red carpet at the Variety Breakthrough of the Year Awards in Las Vegas wearing this punky tartan bomber by Fausto Puglisi, we of course because green with envy. Sporting the jacket over an all-white ensemble, we loved how the look perfectly complemented her fiery red lip.
Even though this Fausto Puglisi jacket is from the fall collection, the sale price still places it out of our budget at more than $1,000. And with spring on the way, we’re not looking to spend a lot of money on something we’ll wear for a few months before retiring the piece until fall. But we found a similar jacket we love just as much for a fraction of the price.
This plaid bomber from Thread & Supply features a finely ribbed collar to keep your neck warm, snap buttons and secure zipper pockets. Available in red and navy, it will certainly be in style for years to come. For $58, that’s not a bad deal. Get it at Nordstrom.
