Loft Corded Dobby Striped Trench

Hi Everyone!

I've been eyeing the Loft Corded Dobby Striped Trench since I received a coupon with a picture of the trench on the back.

Here is the image that initially sold me on the trench:


I plan to style the trench exactly like it's styled in the previous image.

Here are a few IRL pictures of the trench:

I sized down to a medium in this trench.  The large was too big in the arms/shoulders:





And, here is a view of the back of the trench:


So, I need your feedback.  What do you think of the Loft Corded Dobby Striped Trench on me?  I like it; however, I want to make sure that the stripes don't make me look bigger.

Check out this trench on the lovely Gigi HERE.  Has anyone else tried/reviewed this trench?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I just got this trench in the mail and LOVE it!!! I like it better buttoned up I think. It will definitely be a fall staple, for sure!

  5. I adore this trench, the stripe pattern is fabulous! But I do think it could be more fitted, I'm not so crazy about the shape of it :P HTH

  7. Thanks for the link love. I agree it will go great w/bright pencil skirts. Also agree w/Jenni that it asks to be buttoned. I don't think stripes add weight on you. You can cinch the waist and give it more shape that way. The model is striking a pose, so wearing the jacket open just isn't going to look the same irl ;)

    1. Gigi: You're very welcome! Thank you for the feedback and help! You and Jenni are definitely right, the trench looks much better buttoned. You're spot on about the model striking a pose.....a pose that I'd never try to emulate, LOL!!!

  8. I ordered mine a few days ago so I will let you know what I think soon. ;) I'm nervous now though and hope it's not too big; I ordered my regular size.

    1. Skylette: I'm sure that your regular size will fit you well! I should note that at times I need to size down up top in Loft jackets because of my shoulders. I know that you're going to rock this trench to perfection!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  9. I agree with some others that it needs to be belted or buttoned up, other than that it looks great! Keep it! Everything is 40 off today, so I think I might be getting this too! Sounds like we might be an army of striped trench coats:)

    1. biscuitsandnavy: You're spot on, this trench looks much better buttoned. I went into the store and did the return/repurchase thing to get the 40% off!!! I love it that we're going to be an army of striped trench coats!!!! How do you plan to style yours?

    2. I tried one in the store and found that if you take the belt, pull it tight a little around the back and then tie it in the back, it opens the jacket in the front while giving your figure a shape. Try that with yours! Oh the possibilities with this jacket, I can't wait. It looks really good with the mustard yellow jeans and my warm jade no 2. skirt. I had to order the petite size and go up a size (my size was out), so I hope it fits when it gets here!

    2. Anything bright would look fantastic with this skirt. I think it would like great with skinny jeans, trouser jeans, colored/black Minnies, No.2s... How cute would it be with a black turtleneck, colored skirt/pants/jeans and printed Vivs/Valentinas? LOVE!
