Rated 3 out of 5 by Capid loose jacket
This jacket will be fine to carry along to a restaurant where the AC is blasting in the summer time. It is very loose fitting and does not fasten, but it is the type of summer jacket I need to buy every couple of years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by soprofess Too big, too boxy
I really wanted to like this light jacket and I think it looks great in the picture. But it was very unflattering on me, with a boxy and bulky shape. It looked balloon-ish, not drapey. I am sorry to have to return this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheryl915 GREAT JACKET!
I bought two of these jackets, one black and one white - the oversize relaxed look is great. Love how it fits, especially the length. I also love the quality of the linen - substantial yet drapey enough. Will wear with the long linen J Jill dresses I bought a couple of seasons ago, plus with the J Jill linen pants. Love J Jill linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloria409 Very Useful Summer Jacket
Even in summer you might need a jacket, especially if it is of a good weight, worn open and breezy but giving you that extra layer for an air-conditioned office or after the sun sets on a patio. I love linen and this jacket is made of a fine quality linen. Linen breathes in the warm weather so it doesn't trap the heat. This jacket is open in the front to assist in movement of the air and I found it fits loosely and flows over my body in a flattering way. It goes perfectly with white linen pants if I want a formal look, and I can use it in so many places, whether at work or over jeans or out in the evening. And linen is a workhorse of fabrics. It can bounce back from most things including spills, and look as good as new. I am really pleased with the linen in this jacket and the style is timeless. It doesn't require constant ironing in my opinion. It's part of the charm that linen wrinkles but this jacket is soft and the wrinkles are soft. It falls to a good length to flatter my curves. I know it is going to be in my summer wardrobe for years. It feels good, it looks good, it matches everything. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanJill427 A great addition to my warm weather wardrobe
Looks good when worn over a tank, and as a topper over slacks, or a dress or skirt.. Bought it in black, which makes it great for my city work wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mysticcowgirl Perfect for petites
This jacket is so comfortable and the petite size it a perfect fit for a short waisted woman. The lapel area stays put even on my large bosom. It even has pockets!!!! It looks dressy with the linen dresses from JJill and with is also perfect with jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pfc131 Not flattering for petites
This jacket is cut too long and just isn't flattering for short women--at least for me. I'm much shorter than even the average petite (4'11") so maybe it would work for someone a little taller, but it was overwhelming for me.
