This past year I have been refining my wardrobe to create a capsule-like closet – no, it’s not your 30 piece capsule wardrobe but it features the pieces that are classic, will last years and that spark joy.
One fall ready piece I came across back in May was an Army Green Jacket or Military Style Jacket. Previously, I was not drawn to this style of jacket – it was always bulky looking and not flattering for petite figures.
Then I found the Burberry Whitworth Belted Jacket in army green (listed as moss green) and fell in love! I saw it in person in the store (Bloomingdale’s) and immediately thought, wow why didn’t I see this during my online shopping search?! Because the stock photo online doesn’t do it justice.
I briefly reviewed this Burberry Jacket on my Memorial Day Sale & Fit Reviews (more here with Salvatore Ferragamo items). Here is a summary of the jacket & why it sparked joy for me.
The Burberry Whitworth in Moss Green is a rich green color – a perfect military style color. I love the nylon feeling to the upper portion of the jacket – it would do well in the rain and the large pockets are great for holding your phone or hands to keep warm! I love the belted detailing – it really helps on petite-frames and will come in handy.
- For sizing, at first my store only had a Size 2 and I thought it fit well…I even had on a work blazer underneath without any problems. I did have to roll the sleeves once which was fine since the nice Burberry fabric design shows then. I found a Size 0 at another local store and it does fit a little better, but doesn’t have as much room for work blazers or thick sweaters underneath.
- I opted to keep the Size 2 for the best fit year-round!
Pricing wise, this is an investment piece. Originally listed at $795, I was able to pick it up during the Bloomingdale’s Sale in May & it’s currently on sale again. If you’re a Bloomingdale’s loyalist (join now for free via link!), you may also be able to add on extra coupons to the purchase price.
If you cannot afford this Burberry jacket – another option is this green jacket for <$100. I have tried it on in stores and it fits in petite XXSP and is just slightly large in size XSP.
For those asking, other affordable options that I have tried on and recommend are:
J. Crew or LOFT or click images below! The first jacket is a new edition to the J.Crew line and my pick as an alternative!
