Stylish AlternativeMy teenage daughter wanted a longer down coat. This coat fit her unique sense of style and didn't look like a "mom" coat. She spotted this in the store and immediately fell in love. Be warned, it's not as warm as a North Face, but she layered it up and wore it all through the Polar Vortex winter. ,,,,As for the sizing, I totally disagree with other review that says it runs small. We found it to be true to size. We bought a small which was roomy on my daughter, who is a size 0, but I am a size 4 ~ I tried it on, and it fit me perfectly.

Runs smallI bought this jacket as a gift for mom. She wears XL. When it arrived, it seemed a bit small, so I decided to try it on ( I wear size M). It was a tiny bit large for me, but barely... Had to return it as it would never fit my mom....
