Tightwad Tuesday: Bop Basics Faux Fur Trapper Hat on a Budget

My loves, to your left feast your eyes on Bop Basics’ fabulous Faux Fur Trapper Hat; on the right take a peek at Forever 21’s Faux Fur Hat.

While the Forever 21 marvel is a slightly lighter brown hue than the Bop Basics beauty, and sports dangling tassel pom-poms; for a mere $10.80, in comparison to the $98.00 needed to take the blissful Bop Basics piece home, it is just as capable of adding a smattering of stylish coziness to one’s look du jour, at a price that is oh-so right for the budget babe!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop and Forever 21 for the pictures.

What a fun hat! I'd def do the F21 one :) Great find~!

Ebony said...

I don't think I'd pay the Bob Basics price for a hat, but I actually prefer the coloring in it to the coloring of the Forever 21 version.

Since I wouldn't be wearing it all too often, sign me up for F21 :)

Rachel said...

These look so cozy! They'll definitely be perfect for keeping warm in the cold weather. I'm gonna go with the Forever 21 hat though. So much more affordable!

They pretty much look identical from where I'm sitting, though the Bop Basic might be a tad warmer. Not sure I could pull off this look, but I'd go for the F21 version!

Natasha H. said...

The Forever XXI hat is such a great deal. I would definitely go for that one. Hope you're having a great day.

Anaiz said...

What a cozy looking hat, love it!

Audrey Allure said...

Both look so cute & comfy - and I wish I had one today; it was so cold in NY!

janettaylor said...

So cozy!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love f21 hats! And now you are making me want to go to Sweden or someplace cold and show off my awesome hat!

Ruby Mines said...

Great match! Generally Im generally not into big fur hats I might buy this one and wear it when I go to starbucks because its always unapologetically frigid there. ;)

ellie said...

I guess it depends what you are gonna use it for. My Dad, a mail man who has to traipse through some harsh winters has something similar to this from L.L. Bean. And if he keeps it out for long, the cat likes to curl up in it.

But I'd go for the cheaper. Maybe buy more than one because get some giddy friends going, and they just might steal it. Yes, welcome to my world...of winter. Of course, we never really know when winter might set in. Last year, a bit before Christmas.

Forever 21 is always fun. Love their stuff.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love the trapper hats. Think I'll go with the one from Forever 21.

Ashleigh said...

Trapper hats are the bomb!! Such a great steal from F21!!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Love it! Yes please to the F21! I try to never spend money on hats because I always lose them somewhere.
Great crave or save!

Taj Acosta said...

The F21 is just fine with me! I just bought the custest faux fur stole-thingy there, can't describe it cuz it's kinda like a vest too but with no back. I know I make no sense. But it's soo cute! xoxo

Islandia Lane said...

totally choosing F21 and I love it!!

Tights Lover said...

I love the trapper hats! The $98 price tag for the Bop Basics doesn't sound too bad, either!

Sherin said...

London is freezing these days. I could do with one of these: they both look so warm and cosy. I definitely prefer the F21 one.

Anonymous said...

Love them both, but sorry to say that California is not usually cold enough to don one of these. But, they do look great! Love your site...thanks!

Love this! I have one from Wilsons Leather, I think I paid around $30 but its totally worth it to me!

Take care Erica!

OMG--I've totally been wanting one of those! I'll try to snag that XXI Forever one.

I don't like hats; and my girlfriend hates them more than I do...but this style I think is cute and would look great on her (especially during NYC winters! you remember those right, Erika?? :)

I love the Forever 21 hat! =)

OneCraftyFox said...

OMG I always laugh when I see people wearing these in warmer climates, but I do think they are great when you actually live somewhere really cold... like me growing up!

Clare said...

I have a hat JUST like this. Except mine takes awesome to a whole new level because it is camouflage! My dad bought it for me before I went to grad school. He thought I would be embarrassed by it. But I wear it all the time in the winter

Elle Sees said...

i think these hats are cute!

Emily said...

I have one that I wear all the time when it's cold! I'm having a tightwad moment with this one :)
