Punk Rave Harriet Cropped JacketStriking cropped jacket from Punk Rave! The gorgeous Harriet jacket features a detachable faux fur collar, crescent moon adornment on the asymmetric zip, and subtle bell sleeves. A great extra layer for any look, this versatile jacket is fitted and made of thick fleece.
Great quality item. Materials are thick and everything appears well made, including the zip. I think Punk Rave are the best quality brand on the alternative market at the moment, noticeably better than other brands by a long shot. I have confidence that an item I buy from them will last years to come, so they tend to be worth the higher price tag (...Unlike say Killstar where items are cheaply made and fall apart within a few months!). The only reason I didn't keep this jacket is that there is no stretch in the material so it pulls tight when I lift my arms forward/above my head. I'm picky about that, comfort and freedom of movement are very important to me in a garment, especially something I would wear a lot like a jacket. That aside, I usually wear an 8 on my top half and I could get away with the 10 as it's cropped (so isn't going to make my waist look bigger than it is), but I feel a size down might be more flattering. I'm possibly a bit broader shouldered and bigger busted than average (being an hourglass rather than a pear who often have narrow shoulders and smaller busts) and so often find things can be too tight under the arm pits. I'm happy to say that is not the case with this jacket, even if it does pull tight when lifting your arms up - just wanted to clarify that! It's cropped very short, coming just below the bust on me rather than cutting off at the waist. A beautiful, good quality piece that I would recommend for anyone not fussy about lifting their arms up haha!
