High vs. Low: The Track Jacket

Velour track jackets have become a wardrobe staple of sorts—at least we see them everywhere, whether we actually wear them or not. It’s such a simple and casual item that it’s hard to believe that any of them come with a high-end price-tag, but, of course, they do. Here, well—you know the drill. One is within the realm of a sane purchase, the other is way more dough than a little piece of velour, however cute, should fetch. So which is which?

The pink version is our budget pick, on sale at Macy’s right now for a mere $9.80. The lavender number is Juicy Couture—94 bucks at eLuxury.
