This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something lightweight and dressy to wear over a black dress. The fabric is thin - the weight of a blouse which is just what I wanted. Other reviewers apparently didn't like that and thought the quality was bad, but it's well made. This jacket fits me much better than most Limited clothing. Most Limited tops are way to narrow for me in the tummy area, but this fits perfectly, so I suppose it would be "boxy" on pencil-thin people. I wear a size medium or size large in Limited clothing, and this fits me well in size medium, so it probably does run a little big. It's a little short (doesn't look great with pants - I'm 5'7") but since I'll be wearing it with a dress and skirts, it's just right. I wish it was washable, but other than that, it's exactly what I was looking for. I have the green one.
I expected the same great quality and fit of last seasons jackets. However, this jacket was too large in the shoulders and chest and the material was flimsy. Definitely did not fit like anticipated from looking at the models picture.
I was a little disappointed in the overall fit and quality of this jacket. I realize this is a schoolboy style blazer but it was a little too boxy on me to be flattering. I take an XS in Limited jackets and even that was too large overall on me. I purchased the green and while the color was flattering. The material left much to be desired. I was a little worried it would snag and ultimately decided to return. Nice jacket, just not for me.
