Out And About Jacket
not for me, but trendy
This jacket has awesome Lulu details and I do think it's likely worth the high price.
That being said, it did not flatter me. The front was too short (and I like the Throw Me Over Hoodie) for this type of piece. For example, I could not wear my Defines or Formes under this jacket if I wanted. (They looked odd sticking out.)
Moreover, the back bunched out too much, making me "look like a duck." (That was my husband's blunt assessment and he usually loves my Lulu clothes, though he doesn't appreciate how much I spend on them. :))
Even though I returned this jacket, it is a fun piece that will likely work well for someone else.

I feel lucky that I snagged this jacket up right away since its sold out in most stores. I have a size 2 in black, for reference, I am
5'2 115lbs. It's meant to fit short in length so if you don't like that, choose a different style.
The flare in the back definitely makes the jacket! Adorable, flirty but sporty. So many compliments when I wear this.

Stylish jacket on the go!
Lots of great features and very versatile. This will replace my leather jacket on rainy days or days where I am afraid to get my leather jacket dirty. Stylish and practical. Very cute on. It's a tad bit on the short end .... But not too much. I am 5'4" and it is its fine on my hips. Style is suppose to be like that. Cinched waist is flattering as well. Well worth the price for a daily commuting jacket that doesn't look like gym wear.

Cruelty-free cousin of motorcycle jacket
This jacket is the cruelty-free cousin of the leather motorcycle jacket. It's got a modern edge to it with a feminine flare.
First 2 hours worn I got a "that's a super cute jacket" compliment. I'm 5'6" and the fit is perfect. It's a fitted and high on the waist but that's the way it's supposed to fit. If you are looking for a rear-covering jacket keep looking.

Well worth the price
I took a chance and bought this jacket in a size 10, bleached coral (btw, my new favorite color!)...absolutely perfect fit!
Size 10 was a good fit for the girls, and the back cinch allowed me to adapt this to my body!
It's a dressier jacket, which makes it versatile...a trench coat fabric, darling details, and lots of them...vintage Lulu!
It is a short jacket, and the peplum in the back is GREAT for slim hips...wider hips, leave the reflective flap down, and you will have a fab fit too.
So glad I bought it!

Gorgeous Jacket - WAY Too Short
I'm only 5'4, and the waist band of the jacket hit my rib cage :( I usually wear a 6, so I even went up to an 8, and same problem, way too short. It's a shame. The details are awesome, and I love that its fitted - just way too short in the torso...and I'm not a tall person :(

flattering, feminine and versatile jacket!
I was shopping with some girlfriends, and of course we are at lululemon. 2 of my friends bought this jacket in black, which was the only color the store had in stock. I went home and immediately ordered it in dune. I can't say enough about it. All 3 of us have different figures and height ranging from 5'2-5'7, and it looks great on everyone! The cinching at the waist and the shorter length is what makes this so feminine and flattering. I took the hood off, and wore mine out last night over a dressy floral top, jeans and pumps. I got tons of compliments. A little pricey.....but if I bought a jacket like this at Nordstrom or bloomy's, I bet it would be over $200. Lots of detail on this jacket, so I think it's worth it!
Also, I find it to be true to size. I am a 4 in all define jackets, and I bought this in a 4 as well.

I was recently at a Lululemon store and wasn't crazy about this jacket but am looking for a spring jacket. I tried it on and LOVE it! It is so stylish, light weight but not flimsy like some spring jackets. I am usually a 10-12 in tops with lulu depending on the fit. I tried on a 10, but I have a large chest and it fit everywhere else I just couldn't comfortable wear the size 10. Why is the biggest size a 10 if majority of the products go up to a size 12?! Things haven't been as consistent with product lately, sizing and quality. It's a shame.

This jacket is adorable. I saw it in the Santa Monica store on sale and for some reason talked myself out of buying it because I already have a lulu raincoat in the same color. I am kicking myself now for not getting it. It's super cute for gym clothes or any casual street attire.

I was looking for a spring jacket that had a hood and pockets. I am 5'4" and have a hard time finding flattering coats, they usually are too long and look boxy. This fit perfectly!
It's cinched the waiste to a flattering look; it is adjustable for a personal fit. I also love that it zips all the way up to the neck for, colder days.
I bought a size 6, larger size than normal, but sweatshirts or layered shirts fit underneath. It will be perfect for boating season with cooler nighttime temps.
