Such a lovely blazer!! Perfect to wear over a simple solid dress. For reference, I'm 5'5", 100lbs and 25 in jeans and tried on a 0. I found it fit well in the shoulders and was not overwhelming. This means it may run small on most ladies! There are so many colors in this jacket that it shouldn't be hard to pair with tops in your closet!
The only small con is the material is a bit stiff and it sometimes does not fall the way you'd like it to. I ended up flattening some bulges, especially the pockets since they're bunched up, to create a cleaner look. This is a cropped jacket which will dress up any simple basic tee!

First time I tried this on in my usual size, 0 or 2. It was way too restricting so I moved on. I later saw it in the store again and wanted to try it in a larger size. I tried a 6 and love it. I like that I can bend my arms and move around, it doesn't feel so tight. Getting a larger size makes the waist seam lie above my hips, which I like. The puffy bottom is then puffed out lower instead of at the waist. People mention not liking the bunching at the pockets but I'm pretty sure that's the way it was meant to be designed. Happy with this blazer, it can be dressed up or down. Perfect with jeans on casual Fridays!

I love it when blazers are made of a material that has stretch...and this one is. For me, it means I can wear it fitted but still move my arms.
I ordered a size 4, my usual, and I would say it fits true to size (I am 125 lbs, 5'6, average build).
The pattern is really nice and because of the wide range of colours, I can pair this with a lot.
I will agree with the past review that it is cropped, and that there is some bunching around the pockets.
The only thing I think that is not accurate from the photos, is that the arms are quite big and wide. They are not as fitted as on the model or as much as I would like them to be. I have average sized arms, so I don't think it is me.
The button is also coming off already, so I did not give the blazer 5 stars. Not a huge deal though, and overall I am happy with this.
