We interrupt Shoe Week on AFD for an opinion poll.
I ordered this leather sleeve jacket from Zara:
Here it is on me:
Zara jackets and coats have always fit me kind of oddly. Sometimes I can wear an Extra Small, and sometimes I'm forced to wear an Small to accommodate my shoulders and back. For this jacket however, I had to go up to an Medium! The Small fit in the back of the shoulders, but across the front was much too tight when buttoned up all the way. This jacket above is a Medium and fits across the front. I love this jacket, but does it look too big? The sleeves are too long, but they have zips at the end, so they cannot be shortened. I can cinch at the waist for a more customized fit, but I think that it fails to camouflage how large the back is. At first, I was convinced that this jacket looked alright, but now that I look at these photos, I think it does look a bit large looking at the back and overall, just too long. But maybe it's OK? I'm a bit confused by the size because I've never worn a Medium in my life, and I'm afraid that I might blinded by the fact that I really want to keep it. So I need someone to be the voice of reason. What do you think? Do you like it? Is it too big? Please leave a comment below!
