QUILTED (MINUS THE) LEATHER FRONT SWEATSHIRT
I have never reviewed an item twice, but I couldn't get this unique and classic design off my mind. I went back to Express and decided to try the medium which ended up being a better length. Although the stiffness was still there, it looks more intentional in the larger size -- soft color, strong silhouette. I ended up loving how it looked with the black pants I was wearing and made the purchase (with a coupon, of course! Otherwise this sweatshirt is a bit overpriced.)

I could not wait to add this sweatshirt to my Express collection and again it was a winner. It has given me life!!!

Great idea, poor execution
I wanted to love this sweatshirt so badly because it truly is stunning, but the execution was a total miss.
I tried on my usual Express Small, but it was too short on my torso (just skimming the top of my regular rise jeans). Unfortunately, the poor execution didn't stop there -- the quilted pleather is incredibly stiff. When I was standing straight and totally still, it looked lovely. But as soon as I moved, it looked like I was wearing a box. Very unflattering.
This is a beautiful and versatile top otherwise, but Express definitely needs to use a more supple fabric. I ended up buying the Quilted Yoke Sweatshirt instead.

My Chanel look a like
The quilt look in cream leather makes this sweater look like you spent Chanel prices. I absolutely adore this top and HAD to have the moment I laid eyes on it.

Great quality, soft fabric. Sooo pretty! Can wear it with jeans, leggings, skirt. This sweatshirt makes the whole outfit.
