Dennis Basso Faux Fur Leopard Tiered Coat with Hood
After reading reviews that said to size up I did order the medium which was way too big. I am usually a size 8 and have about 15 Dennis Basso coats and love them all never having a size problem. Love the coat but needs to go back. Sorry I will not be able to get a smaller size - no longer available. Loved the style.
This is my 2nd Dennis Basso coat and I love it. The arms seem a little short to me but not enough to return it. I also wouldn't advise sizing up to accommodate sweaters; I did so and I'm worried it's too large. Very feminine and soft. As far as other reviewers stating the closures were bad, I think it's important to note this has more of a "hook and snap" style which is different than my other Dennis Basso coat but not a problem and super easy if you know what you're dealing with.
Dennis Basso isn't playing around!
This is a beautiful coat. It is very soft and drapes beautifully. I like the pockets on the inside and the furrier hooks are a sweet touch. You definitely will not see yourself coming and going in this one. I would suggest going with a warm sweater underneath if you plan on wearing it in temps of the 40s or 50s. Keep up the wonderful work Dennis!
Adorable Coat but
I have admired this coat for some time. I originally saw it on the fall fashion preview from New York that Lisa does every year. I received this coat after being on waitlist and was able to purchase at the sale price on 5 EZ payment. It is absolutely chic and adorable. I purchased in my normal Dennis Basso size. My only issue is that I live in Chicago and it will not be warm enough for a winter coat. I am able, though, to wear heavy sweaters under the coat. I am on the fence whether I keep it or send it back due to limited wearability in Chicago.
It is soooo soft and pretty. Very feminine. This is not a heavy coat. It's for a milder day which makes it nice that you can have that fur look when it's not so cold out. Most faux fur coats are heavier and can only be worn on cold winter days. This can go through April in the northeast my opinion. I am very happy with it. Runs true to size for me.
Like a banky
I was so excited to get this coat. It is so soft and warm. The only reason I gave it four stars is because it totally reminds me of a robe or blanket not a coat. I love it though and will wear it like a coat. I must tell you that the coat comes with a nice hanger and a zipped garment bag. Very professional and worth the money.
Wanted to Love it...
I am not a small but in my mind I am. This shattered my faux image of myself when I looked in the mirror. I sized up because I wanted extra room for sweaters. BIG mistake. But this coat is so soft and cute I will order a size smaller. Hope that works better with my mental image.
Misses the mark!
I had high hopes for this coat based on the prior reviews, however was very disappointed when I opened the package. First of all the color is blah, the browns and blacks blend together and it's difficult to decipher a leopard pattern. The fit is off, ordered a size medium, the arms are too long and the structure of the seam (which mimics an elastic band) would make it challenging to fix. In addition to the funky sleeves the bust area was huge (and I'm not small busted) and the hip area was too tight. The closures are difficult to open and close to the point of being defective. The fur is soft and looks cheap. All in all very disappointed in this coat...once again wasted shipping fees!
Love Love This Coat
I have been waiting to buy a tiered faux fur coat from Dennis Basso. This coat is gorgeous on. It's light weight to wear in the fall and mild winter days. The only negative part of the coat is the pockets are placed far back past your hips but still love this jacket. I wish this coat came in more colors so I can buy another one.
Cute but not for me.
I found this coat to be light weight yet very soft and warm. The faux fur print was also beautiful. I wanted very much to love this coat but I found the fit of it to be a bit awkward. I didn't care for the closures and I found the side seams, where the pockets are located, to be way too far back. When I tried to put my hands in the them, I had to pull the pockets forward to be in a more natural position... which made the back of the coat a little tight across my rump. Without using the pockets the back is very cute and flattering... the front, however, looked frumpy on me. Regrettably, I sent it back.
Best Fur Coat Ever
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COAT! This is the cutest faux fur coat, I have ever seen. Soooo much cuter when u get it home, than on TV. I am only 5'2 and stocky. Most fur coats make me look huge and are so uncomfortable and bulky!
Not this one...it's perfect. I get so many compliments whenever I wear it! Very soft, it is hard to stop touching it, and warm, I live in Minnesota and its winter...I am just toasty warm in this coat!
LEGGINS BEST FRIEND
Dig out your old black leggins and black turrtle neck and top it with this beauty...head out the door for an entire day of comfort while holding your coffee and packages. I feel just like Lisa Roberts wearing this...cute and perky !!!
