Fall is taking over, just a few warm days left before a cute light-weight jacket becomes an absolute necessity. Here in LA you really can’t survive without it any time of year since even summer nights can be pretty chilly. I never leave the house without a jacket, particularly a jean jacket since I find it the easiest, most convenient option and the Paige Brooklyn Jacket in Undercurrent is definitely one of the best choices.
Undercurrent is a deep black wash with a fairly light all-over coating accentuated on the seams, cuffs and collar. The semi-shiny finish on a rich dark color has a distinct leather-like look giving it that edgy vibe that you want from a moto jacket. Matte aged hardware from zipper to buttons goes well with the style and creates an absolutely unique “one-of-a-kind” feel. Cool details like pairs of small studs on the front of the waistband add visual interest and originality.
Paige’s Design Team really “nailed” the fit of this jacket. Although relaxed it is not too boxy or baggy while at the same time it is pretty fitted but not too tight. You can easily put it over a thin knit as well as a light sweater and still have some room to be comfortable. The length of the jacket is on the shorter side making it perfect to wear with both dresses and separates like skirts and pants. I also like that this garment looks great both zipped and unzipped which is a rare case with moto styles. Unlike other moto’s, the front panels don’t collapse even when jacket is unzipped thanks to the smart construction and structured fabric which keeps the look chic and clean.
Though the Brooklyn’s denim has to be pretty substantial to keep its shape and to be somewhat warm it is very soft and has a nice, pleasant hand feel. The medium-weight fabric (11.5 oz) has a bit of stretch (1% elastane) in the content to accommodate individual features of your body and to provide comfort.
I went with my usual XS and it fits perfectly from the width of the shoulders to the length of the sleeves. However if you have bigger chest you might need to go one size up.
By the way, the leggings in my outfit are also by Paige Denim and they are absolutely fantastic! Besides a great fit, this Fall/Winter’14 “must-have” piece is made with one of the best looking vegan leathers around – it looks and feels just like the real deal 🙂
I give two thumbs up to the Paige Brooklyn Jacket in Undercurrent – it really is great! Easy to outfit, versatile and super stylish it will stay in fashion and serve its girl well for many seasons.
The Paige Brooklyn Jacket in Undercurrent is available online and at Paige Retail Stores.
