MILITARY PEPLUM JACKET
Runs really really small. I'm 5'4 120 32 D and usually an XS...the small in this was pushing it. Also the pockets aren't real...kind of a letdown. Other than that gorgeous. I wish they'd make more of the red.

Feminine yet on-trend coat!
I love this jacket. I fell in love with it over a month ago and finally bought it and I'm happy. I always search for classic pieces that I will be able to wear for a few seasons, and this is one of those pieces that is trendy with the military inspired look, but I can see it being timeless too. My favorite part is that is mixes military style with girly peplum, making it look feminine! I have a very feminine style so this is perfect. The jacket stands on its own and looks great even when zipped up. The only thing I don't like is that my hands can't sit in the pockets because they're at the waist, but that doesn't bother me too much. The only downside to Express is their sizing: I am always between a medium and a large. Mediums always fit everywhere but are too tight in the chest, so I have to size up to a Large for things that don't stretch. So that was the case for this jacket: I got a Large, which is a little baggy in the shoulders and arms but it works out because I need the extra room for layering. (My measurements are 39-30-40)

Looks best when fitted.
Like the fit and flare trench coat, the fit is also strange on me. The medium was way too big -- about 2-3 inches of excess material. The sleeves were also loose and it just looked entirely unflattering. I went to the store and tried on a small. While there is not much room to wear anything thick, it looks tons better due to the peplum style of the coat. It just looks better fitted.
