Miss Wu Belted Cotton Trench Coat (Nordstrom Exclusive)
I absolutely adore this coat! The color is classic and the bow gives it a subtle, yet striking, feminine touch. After reading other reviews on Miss Wu products that the clothes ran small I decided to order a size four instead of my normal size two in outerwear. However, after trying on the bigger size I found it to be too large and went with my normal size.
I was so excited to get this trench! It is beautifully made! I will disagree with the first review, as I found the arm holes a bit snug with even a light sweater underneath.
I am 5'3" and 135 lbs. I have an athletic build with broad shoulders and full chest (36C). I would recommend sizing up,...not down.
Have received dozens of compliments on this trench
I just received this a week ago and have been wearing it non stop. People stop me in the store and tell me how much they love this coat. It has wonderful details from the buttons to the grosgrain ribbon belt.
I'm often put off by the designer clothes because the armholes are too small (I find that in Kate Spade coats, for example) But this jacket feels comfortable with even a sweater on. The princess seaming on the coat makes it fitted in the bodice and waist.
The flare of the coat is not too dramatic but so much more flattering than a straight, boxy trench.
Finally, the fabric is so soft for a trench. The weave is wonderful. It doesn't have the crisp feel of a trench cotton, but rather a soft, malleable cotton. It rained today and it dried quickly. Wore it with my black Hunter rainboots and a cross body Marc Jacobs bag.
For the record, I am 5' 6" and 140 lbs. I bought a 8 primarily for the width in the shoulders. It's a little big in the waist but I'm okay with that because I have wider shoulders.
