Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Lace Print Jacket with Seaming Detail
I just received this yesterday in the blue/black color. I usually order an XS in this line of clothing, but read the sizing info and ordered the small instead. It fits strangely, at least on me. The shoulders fit well, but the waist fell almost to my hips. This will be the one of the first items of Louis' that I've returned over the years - and I have many of his outfits. Really wanted to like it, but it looks horrible on me.
Got the olive and black in my regular (not lined) size Large and I love it!!! Feels like a sweatshirt, but elegant enough for work with black pants or out with a black leather skirt!!! Fabric is comfy and hefty, but not hot, just the right weight. Looks good zipped but I would be too warm with it that way so will wear it open over the tank or a black WK anything :-)
Perfect for travel with a pair of Louis' new black active pants and flats, just roll it up and off you go! Had been looking at this, so glad it was a lunchtime special!! Picked it and the tank up!!!
Wow, very impressive jacket
Wasn't sure I would like this but I love it. Ordered the black/olive and fit is perfect and the olive color matches my Linea whisper knit skirt in olive perfectly. After receiving it I immediately ordered the blue/black to go with my Linea skirt in black and also the 2 colors in the matching tank. Jacket is very flattering on and has such a nice cut to it and I love, love the shoulder pads. Linea quality is superior, thanks Louis.
I cannot say enough about this jacket, the style, fit and fabric is fantastic. Very high quality. I wish I could get it in more colors. Would definitely recommend this jacket.
I Love This!
This jacket is better than I thought it would be. It fits true to QVC sizing- I'm a M in D&C, I ordered a M in this- fits perfectly! It is soft, can be casual, with jeans, professional looking with skirt or dark pants for work. I will order the matching tank next. Thank you, Vincent!
It's a good thing
I passed on this the first time around but it caught my eye when I was browsing. It came today and since I was going out to eat with friends I threw it on over my olive WK turtleneck. What a great fit. I got a medium since it was fitted and it looks like it was tailor made for me. It looks good from all angles. The fabric will be great in warmer weather. I couldn't be more pleased.
Purchased last year in the black/olive and love it! Have worn with black casual slacks as well as LDO black pin stripe pants and it looks perfect and comfortable. Today I ordered the black/blue top.as well. Since it is slightly fitted I would size up as I did to an XL if you prefer wearing something underneath. Fabric also wears well and does not pill.
The cut on this jacket is slenderizing and flattering. It runs true to size, except the arms, which are much too long. It lays perfectly, feels good against the skin and I like the softly shaped shoulder pads. I was unsure about the print looking a little matronly but I tried it on with the matching tank, black slim leg pants and the right shoes and I think it will work when I need a conservative blazer, which is what I was looking for.
Cute & Casual
That can be dressed up for the office. Subtle lace print that is so surprising to see in Olive - so unexpected, but that's LDO's appeal in my liking of his Classic American Sportwear. Fabric does not have a whole lot of stretch, but ordered true to size in my Medium that allows for light layering (37C bust & broad shoulders). Love wearing layered with matching tank and the Linea Wing Collar shirt from this Linea Fall Season. Looks great with a pencil skirt or a pair of loden cargo jeggings for weekend styling & comfort. Agree, another great soft suiting for travel.
Packs Beautifully for Business Travel
I bought this jacket and its matching sleeveless top for business casual days to pair with black trousers or a pencil skit. It packs without wrinkling when I travel which is great. Liked so much I bought the olive version.
Love it. I love LDO's knits. I love the zipper and the fit.
Love this jacket!
Bought with the matching tank for a job interview. Lightweight yet substantial. Packed and traveled well. Feels more sporty than my other jackets but works in the casual office environment. Only wish - that it had pockets. Normally wear an XL and size fit me perfectly. Would recommend to everyone -- this is a winner!
