Now that we’ve made it to September, we’ll soon be finding ourselves firmly in jacket weather. For those who prefer cooler temperatures, this time of year is a welcome relief from the heat of summer, and gives everyone a chance to break out their most fashionable outerwear pieces.
One top-rated style is currently included in the Nordstrom sale section for 40 per cent off, and boasts an impressive rating from more than 1,000 customer reviews.
If you’re on the hunt for a transitional jacket that’s also cruelty-free, let me introduce you to the BlankNYC Faux Leather Jacket.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $59 (originally $98)
This faux leather jacket is on sale for just $59 right now, and it’s already selling quickly. Constructed with a tailored, biker-inspired fit, this jacket features detailed seaming and loads of zipper accents to bring an edgy look.
Despite the tough biker style, it also has a feminine silhouette that hugs your curves, and a draped neckline that can be worn fully zipped up or loose for a more relaxed look.
What shoppers are saying
Despite the brand’s recommendation to size up since the jackets tend to run small, this jacket has still been winning over shoppers.
“This jacket is perfect to throw on and make any outfit so much more chic! It's very comfortable,” shared one reviewer. “I can actually move in it, some other jackets are so restricted in the arm area and this one is just awesome!”
“I love the color of this jacket, the quality as well. It is definitely worth the sales price and I can see this lasting me for years to come. The sleeves are a little tight so I definitely wouldn't wear it over a thick sweater and I would probably never wear it zipped up, but overall I would definitely recommend this jacket to a fellow fashionista,” wrote another.
To buy or not to buy?
While this jacket certainly has a wallet-friendly price tag now that it’s on sale, there are a couple of considerations to take into account before buying. As the brand notes on the website, it does run a little small, so you’ll want to make sure to order one size up, especially if you’re planning to layer this jacket over sweaters or bulky clothing.
Looks are also a bit deceiving in this case, because although the jacket features multiple zippers, they’re mostly just for show since it doesn’t actually have any pockets. If you don't mind these details and would still like to invest in an affordable and stylish jacket, this is certainly one to consider.
