Review: J. Crew Lady Jacket in Double Serge WoolNovember 01, 2012
I picked up the Lady Jacket in Double-Serge Wool (in a bulk order I will eventually review in full) back in September for my mom as cropped jackets are flattering on her smaller-shouldered frame.
When I received it in the mail, I was struck by how eerily familiar the material was to me. A quick look in my closet revealed that the jacket was made in the same material as the No. 2 Pencil Skirt that I picked up last winter. For a second I wanted to keep the jacket for myself as I enjoy the idea of owning "sets" of things.
The jacket comes in three colors - the spicy gold reviewed here, heather carbon, and berry pink - of which I like the spicy gold most as I think the color is versatile and flattering on a variety of skin colors.
On me I think the jacket is not particularly flattering as I have proportionately wider shoulders and the style of the jacket accentuates that feature. I returned this jacket after snapping these pictures and ordered a size up for my mom (the sleeves were a bit too narrow for her arms).
