SheIn Fashion Review: Reversible Embroidered Bomber Jacket

I know my last SheIn review was just a little over a week ago, but since I just received my latest item from them (and I'm procrastinating from doing actual work right now), here's another fashion review! The item I'll be reviewing is a blue-and-white embroidered satin bomber jacket, a one-of-a-kind piece that boasts both style and substance. Details after the jump!

I know my last SheIn review was just a little over a week ago, but since I just received my latest item from them (and I'm procrastinating from doing actual work right now), here's another fashion review! The item I'll be reviewing is an Asian-inspired blue-and-white embroidered satin bomber jacket, a reversible one-of-a-kind piece that boasts both style and substance. Details after the jump!

I actually picked out this jacket in the same order as the romper and coat that I got last time (review here), but I chose it as an alternative when a pair of pants I wanted ended up being out of stock, so it shipped separately and arrived a little later, which is why I'm giving it its own review.

The jacket that I got was a blue-and-white embroidered bomber baseball jacket. This gorgeous item, currently on sale for $42.06 (originally $68), is offered in sizes S-L.

This embroidered jacket is made of a smooth, shiny, silky satin and is actually somewhat thick, providing more warmth than I'd expected. The hem, sleeve cuffs, and collar are embellished with striped ribbed cotton accents, while the front of the jacket is equipped with a full-length zipper and two pockets. What really caught my attention were the embroidered designs; there are two bird (peacock, I think?) designs on the front, along with a symmetrical, intricate design at the back.

I got the jacket in size S, which fits perfectly! The sleeves are a good length, though I wouldn't mind if they were a bit longer. The S fits loosely and comfortably on me, giving that oversized look without looking baggy or awkward.

I'm a big fan of form-fitting, figure-hugging clothes, but recently I've been pretty intrigued by oversized designs, not only because they can help hide my extra holiday weight, but also because they're a lot more comfortable and relaxed. This jacket is heavier than I expected, so it's actually pretty good for autumn or spring. The silk-like fabric is very smooth and feels super nice, and the zipper works well too!

I was honestly so impressed when I opened my package to find this jacket. It looks 100% exactly as pictured on SheIn's product page, and everything from the colors to the sizing to the embroidered details is spot on.

To make things even better, I found out that this jacket is reversible! This wasn't stated anywhere on SheIn's product page, so it was a complete surprise to me.

On the original side, the jacket is blue and white, with embroidered details; on the other side, the jacket is black and white, with no embroidery. Both sides are made of the same soft, smooth satin-y fabric, with two fully-functional slant pockets and a reversible zipper, and the two contrasting sides give you a lot of variety in terms of style, whether you prefer the unique and eye-catching blue embroidered side or the simple monochromatic black-and-white version.

Here are some pictures of the reverse side of the jacket:

Quality-wise, this jacket is absolutely amazing. If I really had to pick something to complain about, it'd be that the fabric is rather delicate, so you have to be careful not to scratch it. There were a few threads that had to be trimmed too, but otherwise it's perfect.

I love the casual yet intricate design of this jacket, white combines the baggy, boyish look of baseball or bomber jackets with the delicacy of silky fabrics and artistic embroidery. It's a pretty rare piece to come across and it's a lot different from most of SheIn's stuff, and I'm so happy that I got it!

Surprisingly, too, this jacket is quite easy to match with clothing! I was afraid that the unique fabric and interesting design would make it a beautiful yet difficult-to-wear statement piece, but it looks great over all sorts of outfits, whether you pair it with a flowy dress for that boyish vs. girly contrast, wear it with heels over a crop-top-and-skinny-jeans ensemble for a more dressed up look, or simply layer it over a baggy T-shirt and pants for an eye-catching yet casual outfit.

I've found that the blue-and-white side looks great with white, black, grays, or blues, though you could certainly try matching it with other bright colors for a more impactful and unusual look. The black-and-white side, of course, matches with pretty much every color!

Overall

I think it goes without saying that I'm in love with this embroidered blue-and-white bomber baseball jacket from SheIn. Whether it's based on quality, style, or sizing, this jacket went beyond my expectations, and I'd absolutely urge you to check it out if you like the style! I didn't expect for it to be both a useful and stylish piece, and it's certainly one of my favorites of all time from SheIn.
