I had my eye on this Mint Velvet jacket and now it's gone down in the sale:

I think it’ll be super useful. I’d go for it!

Dont like it - but i dont like anything a bit military or with fussy buttons (though i dont mind the colours).

I love it. It makes a change from all the biker jackets everywhere.

I think it would be cool if you don't have too many curves.

Don't like it- looks very dated plus the colour is draining

I like it closed but think it doesn't hang well open.

I don't like it.

It looks like a relic from the 90's that you'd find in a charity shop. Doesn't look fresh or stylish at all to me.

I like that it's dated. It has a sort of Sergeant Pepper vibe.

RJnomore1 Thu 26-Oct-17 20:35:15

Ooh I like that.

But I may be stuck in the 90s...

magicstar1 Thu 26-Oct-17 20:42:10

It's gorgeous

AliceBanned Thu 26-Oct-17 20:43:57

Oh, I really like it. Agree with ILostit, a great SP vibe!

I like it. Plus there's loads of 90s fashion around at the moment. 1990 was 27 years ago - 90s trends have gone through the dated and out the other side into retro -gavel-. And I'm another one who's bored by the ubiquitous biker jackets now.

It's a bit confused. The arm zips feel really out of place with the military style.

But I'm out because those buttons would do my head in. Would take me 10 minutes to take the bloody thing off

If you are, as your name suggests, a dancer, then you may be lean and lithe and it'll look great. Amy sort of bosom though and it'll look...not great.

It doesn't look good on the model. Have you tried it on? Think it could look good on the right person.

I had one exactly like that in the 1990s grin
