As a lover of all things retro glam (give me all the cat eyes and pearls!), I get just a little excited it when looks from the past circulate their way back into style. Faux fur jackets are having a big moment again, and I’m especially liking all the leopard-print options that are on-trend but also timeless in a way. I tried on several long coat options that were a bit overwhelming on my frame, but this shorter jacket from Lord & Taylor is perfect for those who want to dabble in the style. They are having an amazing sale right now with lots of markdowns and extra 20% off certain items using code GIFT. They also have free next-day shipping right now (ending soon) on orders over $99, so you can get those last-minute gifts in time by 12/24!
This jacket is in juniors sizing, which helps make it a little more petite-friendly. I’m wearing xs and the fit throughout is very good, with the sleeves being just a little long on me. I paired it with a faux suede midi skirt (fit of xxs on me is snug, bodycon-like) and quilted leather gloves for subtle added textures.
Lord & Taylor makes some of my favorite fitted leather gloves – I’ve collected three pairs now over several years! The finger length is still a little long on me (was “blessed” with stubby little fingers that could never quite reach an octave, to the dismay of my piano teacher ; ) but the fit is narrow and better than the majority of gloves I try on. I have one pair each of their classic silk-lined leather gloves and cashmere-lined leather gloves (sz 6 fits pretty small / narrow). These quilted ones fit a little bigger since sizing is “S/M” instead of numerical, however I love the look and functionality! They’re made of quilted leather on the back of the hand, stretchy black fabric on the palm half, and work like a charm on touchscreen phones!
Thank you to Lord & Taylor and Shopstyle for partnering on this post.
