CAMOUFLAGE STRETCH COTTON JACKET
THE Essential of the Season
This jacket is beyond epic. It's as comfy as a sweatshirt (only feels slightly stiffer, yet looks a billion x more flattering)! the drawstring on the inside is super important. i ordered a M even though I usually order S, because lately I've been feeling like Express items have been getting a bit more form-fitting, and I also wanted to be able to layer. I'm not really sure if a S would have been better, but what's awesome with the drawstring is you can basically make it into a PEPLUM CAMO JACKET! i have the threads pulled taught and looped on both sides so that my waist is accentuated, and on my torso this jacket falls just below the belt line of my super-low-cut-skinnies creating a gorgeous look that can be switched up in a second if i need to put a sweatshirt or something underneath. If you love to be in style/follow trends but also want pieces that WILL NOT go out of style when the trend does, this item is an absolute essential. So comfy, washer and dryer appropriate, this will look hot whether you're in the city or hanging out in the woods, and it's durable enough for any of the above and everything in between! I may be addicted to this jacket.
I should add, i LOVE the zippers at the wrists, so you can fold up sleeves easily or just let great jewelry or tattoos peek out. the one thing i noticed is that it's not easy to roll up the sleeves like they are on the model - it feel like i could damage the zipper, which is long, so when you do roll up the sleeves, unless you're ok with putting stress on the zipper, expect the cuffs to be longer in proportion than what you see on the model.

Such a cute jacket, and I love that the material stretches a bit. I ordered a medium because I wanted to be able to layer under it to wear it while it is still cold. I am usually an XS or S but with a 34DD chest and it fits just how I hoped! Will take me from winter into spring!
