A twill jacket without frills strikes that dressy-casual balance. The fit is cute and clean — a shaped body, shorter length, three-quarter sleeves — and ready to throw over everything from skinny jeans to a simple sundress. In other words, a sure closet essential. Single button closure. Patch pockets. High-hip length. Cotton twill. Imported.
this little jacket is better than I expected. It's so cute on and the sky blue color is gorgeous. I'm 5'6 and weigh 140 lbs. I usually wear a size 6, which I ordered. But it's a little tight on the upper arms and I can't button it. I'm a size 32b in the chest. So I'm sending it back for a 8. It looks short on the model but remember she has on low waist pants.
I usually wear a size 12, however, I had to return for a size 14 - much better. The 12 I could not button. I expect I'll wear this often. It has a nice weight to the fabric, like a denim jacket.
Review 4 for Essential Cotton Jacket
Date:April 11, 2014
I got this in the pink...it is a little bulky when you sit down and seems to be a little stiff, but overall, I like it and will keep it...I am usually a 0 or 2 and I decided to try a 2 in this and it fit perfectly....
I bought the powder blue jacket to dress up jeans. The color is really pretty but it could be tailored a little more and a little more pop could have been added with some fun buttons. There is no lining which is okay for the price. I noticed that in photographs, because the jacket is a heavy cotton, I look very bulky and it makes me look heavy, even though I am not. This doesn't seem to be too much of a problem when I'm standing up. I wish I could return it for a smaller size but I spilled juice on it and washed it. It came out clean but I doubt the store would take it back. Overall, if you are looking for something to keep you a little warm and dress up jeans for a concert in the park in the summer, it's a good buy. It would have been better if it had been on sale.
