As seen on our fall runway: The reversible Charla Jacket is a luxurious statement layer — and two styles in one. It can be worn with either the soft shearling or smooth leather on the outside. The simple cropped silhouette has a swingy, vintage-chic shape and three-quarter sleeves. Elegant and effortless, it’s a timeless investment piece.

This reversible jacket is a luxurious cover-up for a number of looks:. Wear it on the leather side to lend outfits a touch of tomboy-chic or on the plush shearling side to add instant femininity. Finish with a fur snood to heighten the effect — or to keep extra-warm on blustery days.

I was concerned that the wide band of extra-plush shearling bordering the hemline and sleeves might be unflattering in a Santa-meets-runway kind of way -- but it's not! It's extremely flattering and the quality is superb -- the shearling is ultra plush and lightweight on the body, providing warmth without weighing you down. The color is a deep, rich midnight blue. The combination of textures is gorgeous, and the jacket is versatile -- wear it with denim or with trousers or a skirt. I ordered both a M and L and I ended up keeping the L so I can layer heavier sweaters while still keeping the loose fit.
