With spring finally making its debut I thought it would be the perfect time to review my Burberry jacket. Since it is a light jacket I find myself reaching for it a lot more during these brisk spring mornings.
I had this jacket on my wish list for a while and it wasn’t until I found it on sale and had gift cards that I finally made the purchase. It was literally like the trifecta of shopping and I just couldn’t not get it, however this jacket is a huge investment.
I chose this lighter canvas color because I thought it was a good neutral that would go with everything and I already had a black leather jacket. I love this color and I am pretty careful with it so I haven’t had any issues with it showing dirt or having any stains.
I stayed true to size with the medium and it does fit me well and I am able to button it all the way up with some room to spare. The only issue I have is the boxy fit of it. The material is pretty stiff so it keeps its boxy shape, which for me is not that flattering. The sleeves are also a little short on me. While I could unroll the sleeves I really like the pop of plaid that it has when cuffed so I leave it as is and just ignore the shorter length.
Like I said this jacket is defiantly an investment piece, so if you were like me and just had to have it, then I would say wait for one of Nordstrom’s big sales as I have seen it marked down during that time. I would also recommend trying on a lot of different styles (which I failed to do) to see what style fits you best. This jacket is not made for all seasons and can really only be worn in those warmer spring or fall days so it is not the most versatile, however it is a classic piece that I know I will have for years to come.
