The winter is coming, so it is about time to dust our winter gear or get a new one. And while I am not kind of a gal to ditch outerwear after one season only, I am most definitely the one to get some new one each year. Not to build more tension, though, cos probably you took a sneak peek at the pictures, let me introduce my new winter jacket a sheepskin biker from Zaful. (the fanfare sound is hidden HERE)
Preparing to give an honest review of it, I wore it for a few days in a row. After all how it looks is important, but for me crucial is how it wears. This is a WINTER JACKET, so I have focused on its wearability during the cold days. As the temperatures were between 5 and 15 degrees here, I wore it each day with T-shirt only.
Oh, that was a parade of T-shirts this week! Good that I thrifted a few new ones for this fall winter season.
Sizing is a standard European sizing. My jacket is size M. I went for a size up, simply cos I was thinking of wearing under jumpers, hoodies and so on.
Quality is outstanding. It is a faux leather/fur kind of a jacket, but there is no fabric alike feel to the kinda suede part of it. It is very structured and heavy (what for me is a plus).
Talking of a structure, it is important to add that the design looks exaclty as I expected. The jacket wears well, does not deshape or crease. it looks exactly as I want it to look. Fabulous.
THE WEARABILITY TEST
I am so happy and thrilled to say that IT IS WARM! I did not feel cold (Apart from hands, but that was my abd not to take gloves for a cold October night out). I gave it additional 50 points to usefulness when I learned that it does not let the wind through. Honestly we had some crazy wind here last week and none of it went through to my kidneys.
And now the last, but not least it looks so cool!!!! Okey, I know that taste is not a thing to discuss, but damn, it looks cool!
As boring as I could get apart from the Tshirt (which each time was different, by the way), I wore it also with skinnies for a whole week. That was totally not on purpose, but I am going through some skinnies phase this days, and can’t imagine wearing a different kind of pants.
And this is how we got here, to the point, when I am totally in love with it. Now I can share my ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’ about it, but instead of doing so, let me just look at it.
The only thing that I did not know, if I should mention is that jacket I got has a ZARA WOMAN label…
Let me know what you think of it and stay awesome,
