Believe it or now, I was a band geek all through middle school and high school. That probably explains why I’m always drawn to military-inspired band jackets like these whenever I see them online or in stores. I copped this one at Zara last month, and I love how it adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise boring slacks and turtleneck combo.
About the Fit:
The fit is slightly boxy, but the jacket runs true-to-size and buttons comfortably over my chest. The sleeves work for me, but I can see them needing to be shortened if you’re on the petite side. The material is a substantial velvet that works well for crisp fall days when you’re not quite ready for a coat.
