This jacket is chic! Looks great with an elegant dressy black dress or skirt, or dress it down with a pair of black pants and boots or even a pair of jeans. This one does it for me because I can wear it to work without being frumpy or under dressed. I can wear it to a dress up affair or wear it for a chic look with jeans and high boots. I read the reviews and opted for one size up and it fits perfect. I don't find it boxy at all; especially when I pull the belt snug but not constraining. I have freedom to move and the jacket doesn't weigh me down. It is a light jacket as far as weight goes, but it is warm none the less. I would wear it with a nice knitted turtle or cowl neck sweater if I want warmth in the upper NYS. Love this jacket. Bekka

I don't think this jacket can really be described as "faux fur" - except in the sense of that scratchy, neon-colored stuff pioneered as fake fur in the 70s. This material is much the same - scratchy and woolly, with a long nap. I think a better description would be "faux mohair". Moreover, the "faux leather" trim and belt are so obviously vinyl that I wonder why anyone used the word "leather" in connection with it; calling it a vinyl belt would've been, again, a better description.
So I bought this faux mohair jacket with vinyl belt thinking to replace the belt with actual leather, and with the idea in mind that it could be a fun jacket, in a campy, over the top kind of way. And it does have that potential - the wild print of the material has a lot of textural interest. But the cut was so boxy and unflattering that I simply couldn't get it to work - not at all like the nipped-waist appearance it has in the photo.
