Sahara Short-Sleeve Jacket

Sahara Short-Sleeve Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite jacket! This jacket has been a hit! I was conflicted about whether to call it true to size or a little large. It is roomier than I was expecting, but I think that's the intended fit & style. I've paired it with a few dresses, jeans & tee, and a romper. It's become a new staple along with my jean jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, but oversized I'm usually a small in Madewell, but sized down to XS in this jacket. It's still pretty loose all around. The arms are a little too big and they don't lay flat so it looks like I have wings so I'll probably go to a tailor to make them smaller. Otherwise, the jacket is really cute. It's lightweight and the color is a great army green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Transitional Piece This jacket is very well made, versatile, and gives my "classic" style a bit of edge. I have already worn it casually with a white tee shirt, blue and white cotton skirt, and Hasbeens and received many compliments. I plan on wearing it for work with a long-sleeve striped tee and pencil skirt. The army green color acts as a neutral and pairs up well with most colors in my wardrobe. I think it will be a great layering piece for the fall. It does run big, but this oversized quality gives it the cool factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy throw on I saw this piece on instagram and ran into the store to try it on. I usually wear a Large, but it was so oversized I ended up with the Small! It is the perfect piece to throw on over anything from jeans to a dress. This piece will definitely take me from summer straight into fall/winter, I cannot wait to layer it over everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Summer Jacket This is a great three-season jacket -- it is lightweight enough to keep you cool during the spring and summer, but the fabric is substantial enough to keep you warm with other layers during fall. It fits oversized, especially in the arms, and looks best layered. I received it as a gift and am very pleased with it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should Have Sized Down I have been in LOVE with this jacket since I saw it. I kept considering buying it but once I saw it was on final sale with 40% off I couldn't pass it up. I am 5'2" and though this jacket is supposed to be kind of boxy, I can typically fluctuate easily between an XS and S in Madewell, and previously my XS jackets have been just a hair tighter than I'd like when it comes to layering. Well, I will have no problem layering in this and wish so badly I had stuck to an XS. If I could exchange it for an XS I would. It's so cute and I have no choice but to keep it, but the sleeves are mostly the problem. The jacket looks like the model in terms of size and framing, but the sleeves are just huge! I suppose it will be great for layering come fall, I just hope I didn't waste my money on something I'll never wear because of the size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bulky arms First of all, size down. i was drowning in a size small (i'm 5'4, 34b). Second of all, might have to tailor in the sleeves. they are quite boxy, in an unflattering way. poofs out and up. otherwise, great quality cotton that i see see transition well from chilly beachy nights to perfect fall weekends.
