LOFT Ruched Collar Casual Jacket

Ann Taylor LOFT had an extra 30% off sale items recently and I ordered a couple jackets that were still available in XXSP (I can't resist sales!).  I wasn't expecting too much because their jackets are usually small enough that I always want to try on, but only to find that they run slightly too big and hence, shapeless and not flattering.

One of the items I got was this Ruched Collar Casual Jacket in XXSP:


It looked promising because of the waist ruching, which I hoped would make it fit better.... and I think it did! The khaki color wasn't available anymore, so I got it in the coastal fog, which is a darkish grey:


The ruched collar can be worn up or down:


The amount of waist-ruching is adjustable by re-tying the knots in front, which solves my biggest problems with too-large jackets... the barrel side-view and gaping back-flap.


All in all, not too shabby for a $30 casual jacket?  Unfortunately it's out of stock online, but LOFT is having 50% off sale items in-store right now so you can probably get it for even cheaper!

  1. The ruched waist made all the difference! That jacket looks so much better than any LOFT or AT jacket I've ever tried on. Good find! I like the gray way better than the khaki too.
