Safari shirt-jacket

Safari shirt-jacket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely cute, wearable and chic Bought this jacket in both colors. It reminds me of a French designer who was famous for his take on the Safari jacket in the late 1960s/70s. The cut of this jacket is very figure flattering for those of us who are a pear shaped. The cropped cut is just right. The inverted, flared pleat on the back is a nice detail and makes it more feminine. This jacket will be great to wear to work, and on a day off. I wore the camel color with other camel pieces and added a colorful scarf and wore the pool blue color with the cropped J.Crew Gazebo pant in white and added a red, white and blue scarf. Really nice go to jackets when you need a jacket but don't need lots of warmth from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, classic Love this safari jacket! The short sleeves make it interesting, albeit maybe a little harder to style. But so great for fall transitioning, when you want it to be cool and it's still kind of hot. Great sturdy material. Runs slightly big if you waver between sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chic Swing Jacket After reading the reviews, I called a store and asked what size they recommended, and they were quick to recommend going a size down. So I did, and I am glad I did. It's slightly tight across the top chest if you zip it up, but it doesn't show and is not overly bothersome. I am long-waisted and 5'7" with a small bust (usually a size XS but chose an XXS), so it is a little short on me, hitting at the top of the hip bone. It's structured but boxy and cropped, but that is the style. It swings out in the back, which feels chic and new. I feel that it looks good over fitted tops and higher waisted pants as a layering piece for casual wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too boxy and big This was just awful, I truly wanted to love this. I ordered my regular M size and it was just too boxy & large. I was hoping it would be fitted and sharp looking. Instead it was boxy and too much fabric, not flattering at all. Must return, what a bummer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly large Typically a size 12/large in J Crew tops/jackets. Absolutely my fault - so used to J Crew tops consistent sizing - pulled tags off when trying on. Then found this to run 1/2 size large. If you're on the low side of a size - size down. Should have bought a medium. Great jacket, fabric, and style!
