I went on a leather jacket try-on spree this winter, looking for “the one”. I imagined it would be flattering and smooshy, and over time, would break in to the perfect “oh, this old thing?” soft rumple. Leather is something I avoid altering, so finding good fit off the rack was not looking promising, with my narrow shoulders being my worst enemy on this quest. After trying a slew of beautiful, smooshy leather jackets from such brands as Mackage and All Saints, everything left me feeling “meh”.
Then, on a jaunt through Zara, I found this TRF leather jacket and lo and behold, it fit incredibly well off the rack. It’s not as smooshy or detailed as some of the better brands I tried, but the fit can’t be beat, and I think looks more expensive on me than those pricier versions for that very reason. Fit trumps price.
Here’s hoping after some good wear, it’ll soften up to rumply perfection. ;)
FYI…fellow petite Crystalin can be seen wearing the same leather jacket here.
