Details ahead!

First up is a pink crushed velvet bomber jacket, sold in sizes XS-L.

I got this jacket in size S, going up a size for a bit of a more oversized look. This piece features ribbed knit accents at the cuffs, neckline, and hem, front zipper closure, and two front pockets. The outside is a soft, luscious crushed velvet that glistens in the light, adding a luxurious touch to the piece. The inside is fully lined with a warm and comfortable material.

It was a bit difficult to capture the color accurately in the photos, but the actual jacket looks exactly as pictured on SheIn's site, made of a deep reddish-pink color. The style is simple yet fun; velvet gives off a very festive feeling, perfect for autumn.

My favorite thing about this jacket is how incredibly soft and comfortable it is. It's a great thickness for chillier autumn days, and the material has stretch to it as well! The pink/mauve color is a bit of a challenge to pair with various clothes, but it's definitely a trending tone of the season, and the jacket is very easy to wear.

The second of the five jackets that I got was a black floral embroidered satin bomber jacket, originally sold in sizes S-L but unfortunately sold out now.

This silky black jacket features colorful floral embroidery throughout, faux front pocket accents, and front zipper closure. The material is smooth and satin-y and the jacket is lined, though the fabric is pretty light, making this a lightweight, stylish piece for spring or early autumn.

The quality of this piece is great for the price, although I really wish the pockets were real. The jacquard floral design gives this piece an elegant, vintage vibe, and seeing how unique the embroidery was, I knew I had to try it! All in all a great piece to have for the style, though not the most practical jacket.

Up next is a navy blue silky satin bomber jacket with embroidery at the back, originally offered in one size.

This ultra-glossy piece is constructed from a lightweight and super-smooth satin, with front pockets as well as a zippered pocket on one sleeve. While the front is just a solid deep blue hue, the back features the words "Love Me Forever or Never" embroidered in a white typographical style.

This jacket is now sold out, but was quite affordably-priced, and the quality does not disappoint! The fabric is light, smooth, and comfortable, and the royal blue satin material adds to the simplistic elegance of this jacket. On the other hand, the embroidery could have been a bit better; some letters had threads connecting them that needed to be trimmed.

The one-size-only fit of this piece could fit sizes XS-L, depending how loose you'd prefer for it to fit. It's a bit too oversized for my personal preference, but nonetheless works as a very stylish, chic layering piece. Here, I wore it with a blue oriental silk bralette and skirt set from O-Mighty to contrast with the more boyish, boxy fit of this jacket, though the cut and style of this jacket make it a pretty versatile piece for any wardrobe.

Next is an army green bomber jacket with black lace-up accents, sold in sizes XS-L.

Army green edgy lace-up criss-cross tied longline bomber jacket from SheIn, worn with a black leatherette faux leather suspender skater dress.

I got this jacket in size XS and it fits true to size, with a longer cut and slimmer fit than most bomber jackets. The lighting in the pictures was a bit odd, but the actual color is a nice, deep army green, accurate to SheIn's photos.

This jacket has two zippered front pockets and is made of a smooth polyester, fully lined. The back is solid green, while the front has black criss-cross laced accents that give it a touch of edginess.

Overall, this jacket is super well made, and I love the fit! I like that it has that oversized, longline fit without being too bulky, and the thickness is great for this season. The zippered pockets make it both a functional and stylish jacket, and I honestly like it a lot more than I thought I would! Of all the jackets I got, this was one of the simpler designs, but definitely a piece I can see myself wearing a lot.

The fifth and final piece of outerwear that I got from SheIn as part of this jacket/coat haul was a light pink silky duster coat, originally offered in sizes XS-L.

Light pastel pink silky satin longline maxi duster coat from SheIn, worn with the pink Qianru oriental silk bralet and skirt from O-Mighty.

This dusty pink maxi coat is made of a thin, lightweight silky satin-feel fabric that sways with your every movement, giving it an incredibly elegant and glamorous-yet-understated style. It features a folded collar, two front pockets, and matching silky belt so that you can wear it open or closed.

The material does wrinkle a bit easily, but this duster coat is very comfortable, and the thickness of the fabric finds a wonderful balance between luxury and lightness. I'm so in love with this piece, but sadly it's quite long on me since I'm not very tall; I'd have to style it with heels so it doesn't drag on the ground, and even though I doubt I'll have the chance to wear this too often, it's a really gorgeous piece and I'm glad I chose to try it!

Overall

I've been choosing way too many jackets lately, but with all of SheIn's incredible new styles, it's hard not to! I had a lot of fun trying out all these different styles, including the sweet and casual velvet bomber jacket, the unique jacquard floral satin jacket, the ultra-chic silky blue jacket, the edgy lace-up army green bomber, and the elegant dusty pink longline coat. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'd say it's a tie between the green lace-up jacket and pink duster coat, since those two pieces fit me the best.

Thanks so much for reading; I hope you found this review informative and maybe discovered some new styles that caught your eye! Check out my previous SheIn fashion reviews here!

  2. Hi Michelle! I'm stuck on purchasing a bomber jacket online and I'd love your opinion. Do you typically size up? I do want a more loose fit, but I'm worried it'll look too baggy on me.

    1. Hi! I usually size up but it also depends on the jacket itself; if it looks pretty oversized already I'll just go with my regular size, otherwise I'll size up.
