Living in a seasonal climate good layers are important but all too often our outerwear creates bulk so we wanted to create a smart casual jacket that maintains a feminine silhouette. There is room for bust and hips but the jacket still defines the waist. Here it is; our flattering fit women's jacket inspired by 40s tailoring and classic vintage style.
We adore the large shawl collar that flatters a curvy shape.
Women with curves seeking a jacket to flatter their shape will love this jacket. Move the buttons to cinch an hourglass waist or provide a better fit for an apple shape. Our bodies change over time and this women's jacket has been designed with that in mind.
Our lovely warm cardigans are ever popular but we've been listening to our customer's feedback and you have told us you want other outerwear options that better meet a smart casual dress code. When a cardigan won't cut it you need a really fantastic jacket like this one with its flattering shape and more tailored look.
The double breasted style is designed to better define a small waist whilst accommodating bigger hips and ample bosom. However, two buttons are purely decorative, they can be moved for the most flattering placement or entirely removed to create a single breast style.
Really though, this jacket is all about the wide dramatic collar, place a brooch on it, give us a glimpse of that beautiful print or contrast colour you are wearing beneath? Even draw it up higher to draw upon the chic styles worn by movie stars in Old Hollywood.
Good quality fabrics ensure this jacket looks top notch and we have matching bottoms if you wish to create a stylish suit.

Cut for curves. This is a jacket that fits an ample bust and will flatter hourglass and pear shapes. It also enhances the idea of curves for those who do not have them.
We offer several single breast jackets but this double breast jacket has more versatility for different shapes by moving the buttons if necessary.
Size charts don't give you the full picture when it comes to best fit but they are a start if you cannot make it to our central London shop.
