This is J.Crew's Faille Maisy Jacket (item #11977), which originally retailed for $148, with select colors on sale now for $89.99. This jacket comes in a navy, natural, and dusty pink color. J.Crew describes the jacket as such:
Simple, sweet and detailed with pleats. Our designers gave it a classic fit with pleating at the waist seam for a flattering feminine shape and inverted pleats at the back. Cotton/poly/nylon. Rounded collar. Long sleeves. Vertical hidden pockets. Sleeves are lined. Hits at hip. Import. Dry clean.I just sort of stumbled upon this jacket in-store, and I tried it on in the natural color. Here is the online picture of the natural color for reference.
The jacket fits true-to-size with a little wiggle room, I think. I think it looks a little shapeless from the front. The fabric is nice and moveable, and a little more durable than a regular cotton jacket.
From the side I think it's pretty cute. The bit of flare at the natural waist is cute. I also like the contrasting lining that you can see when you roll up the sleeves (navy, in my case).
I am not typically a fan of pleats - I don't own any pleated pants. But I thought the inverted pleats on the back were kind of cute, and made this jacket more interesting beyond being another neutral colored jacket.
The Boyfriend loved this coat on me - he thought it was really cute, so he ended up buying it for me! After I steam this jacket, I'll be definitely be wearing it around!
What do you think? Do you like this jacket? Do you already own it? Do you like the pleats?
