I bought this jacket in early September and the wait to wear it has been KILLING ME. It’s from Sears, which I think has great deals on work wear. I like their Apostrophe line. I bought another Apostrophe jacket last winter and I’ve been pleased with it as well.
You Look Fab has a nice article on wearing trapeze jackets like this. All the styling tips I’ve read have advised a long, lean layer beneath the jacket to balance out the volume and short length. In my opinion, bottoms should also be slim, but I’ve seen boxy jackets styled with full skirts in Lucky (October or November issue). I suspect that only looks good on very thin bodies. If you wear the jacket as outerwear and add gloves, they should reach the sleeves. I thought I’d have a problem adding a neck scarf over the sweater and jacket collars, but a loose wrap was just right.
