Jackets from UK's New Look Turn Up at Target

A savvy BB reader by the name of Rachel recently wrote in to me to let us know that she spotted a stylish faux leather jacket in a rich camel color for $29.99 bearing an unfamiliar brand name on the label called New Look. Rachel wonders if this jacket might be from the UK fast-fashion chain by the same name (see

"The brand is New Look (with a funny looking w) and when I googled it I found this really chic and inexpensive UK (that explained the sizing running small) website. So apparently this isn't even a Target brand. It feels like a much more expensive jacket and quite a steal so I thought I'd share it with you in case they might be putting these in several Targets. I found it in the women's section, not the juniors and they had camel, black and possibly another color. They still had plenty black ones left, and there were some other designed jackets in the same grouping I think might have been from New Look also. Not sure." —Rachel

I haven't been able to find out anything from Target about a collab with New Look but this could be a cool move if it's true. Has anyone else spotted New Look clothing at their Target? Let me know if you do!

I loved New Look when I lived in England. Great things that were very inexpensive, even with the sky high exchange rate.

I hope New Look is collabing with Target. They have great shoes, so fingers crossed for a shoe collection as well!

I saw these at Target as well. I had on a floral summer dress at the time and the brown one that I tried on looked really good with it. It fit really nice and was feminine and not bulky. The jackets look like they would be really versatile. I really wish I could get one.

Hey BB, New Look is one of my UK favs. I love their Gold by Giles collection (Giles Deacon.)
No need for them to collaborate with Tar-jay.
Just shop their website sometime, they ship to the US! :-) I buy great stuff there, prices are at least 50% off TopShop.

I feature them regularly on The Recessionista. I need to take you shopping in the London! :-)

I used to love New Look when we lived in London! Great prices for trendy stuff. Fingers crossed they are coming State side!

I have not been in Target for a minute, but thanks for the heads up. I will have my looking out for these, though I doubt they will show in the southeast outside of Atlanta and Miami.

hey I'm the reader who sent this in and I found it in birmingham, alabama! So they are definitely popping up in the southeast. We never have anything good in our Targets, so I was so suprised to find this.

I am not sure if I am a big fan of these jackets, but it is a good look for women to wear!
