Dennis Basso Faux Fur Leopard Tiered Coat with Hood
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 !!!
The fabric is beautiful but I didn't care for the overall construction of the garment. The lining felt as though it would burst at the seams if I moved to quickly and the side seam pockets were too far back. I also thought it would be slightly thicker. I loved it when I saw it and hate to have to return it.
cute but not very versatile
This coat is very charming. The fabric feels great. It is light and soft and cozy. The negative is that the style is not very flexible. It will look great with jeans or black slacks, but you cannot wear it with anything else. If you think of it as a sweater that needs to match your top and your slacks, you will put together a great look. If you think of it as a coat that can be worn with most of your clothing, I'm afraid you will be disappointed.
I tried to purchase the other tiered coat Dennis offered last year, but couldn't find the right fit. That coat was heavy and bulky looking on me. This version is lightweight, not bulky and fits true to size. I really love the hood- it sort of drapes and looks classy. The faux fur on this coat is very soft like a cuddly teddy bear. If you are in-between sizes, you may want to size up on this. I am a size 4-6 and the extra small fit me perfectly. This is very stylish and a coat you will get a lot of wear out of. This probably isn't a coat to wear in the super cold weather unless you layer your clothing and it is perfect for someone like me who is in and out of the car several times per day because it isn't bulky on the body.
