LUX HALF ZIP JACKET
"Wouldn't it be great if we could turn a classic half zip into a jacket?" That was the design team question, and the answer, per usual, was "with the right fabric, yes!" To make the half zip jacket, we made the unique choice of Heavy Lux. Then we made the fit more relaxed, just slightly cropped, with enough room to wear layers underneath.
- heavy lux (polyester / spandex)
- relaxed silhouette
- half zip w/ contrast zipper
- reflective front zipper
- 24" body length (size small)
I impulse bought this during the winter sale and am so glad I did. I absolutely do not "need" more cozy clothes from Oiselle, but what does "need" mean these days anyway. I love the heavier lux in a top! I am constantly waffling between extra small and small, but went with small in this. I like the oversized fit and appreciate the arm length. I probably could have done an extra small but I have long arms and a couple other tops I ordered in extra small this year were too short in the sleeves.
Without these things, I don’t really think it’s worth the price. But it’s comfy, and I couldn’t resist the empire/snap combo. I love how fast the lux material dries. All of my Oiselle tops are size 4, so I purchased a small, but I think I would’ve preferred XS.
I can't say enough good things about this pullover/jacket. It is super soft and flattering. It is loose enough to put a layer underneath if you want to, but also perfectly fine on its own with a puffy coat on top. It is a great layering piece for a chilly run, but also cute with jeans. I have the black, which is a great staple and plan to get in the other colors too!
I have literally worn this shirt every day since coming home from the hospital with a newborn. It's warm and flattering-- comfortably loose but not baggy. Bonus: it's great for nursing, but will also translate perfectly into my normal wardrobe in a few months. Cannot recommend highly enough.
I wore this running this morning (I've had it for months), and then I ordered another one this afternoon. I just love this shirt. It's soft. It's heavy enough to keep the cold out but light enough to run in. The half-zip allows for heat/cold mediation. It has everything. I'm always a medium in Oiselle these days, and it fits perfectly. You can wear something underneath if you need to, but don't need to if one layer is enough. It's worth every penny and then some.
I have been eyeing this pullover since it was released, but found it hard to justify since I have so many others. I used my birthday code and got the empire/mauve and LOVE IT. I am 5'3, 128 lbs and ordered a medium because I wanted to be able to wear it over a bulkier t-shirt. The fit is great, and the shorter crop on this style is actually perfect. it's a heavier lux in the material, but it is incredibly soft. I am going to try not to buy another within the next 24 hours! This is great!
NEEDS A HOOD!!!
Needs kangaroo pouch pocket!!!
Then I’d love to love it!
Love the Lux! Love the heavyweight! Love the long sleeves, high neck and hip-length body. It fits so well over a cotton t-shirt (mostly from short, local races) and doesn't make the short sleeves bunch up. I haven't actually run in it, but it was a COVID teaching staple and has been a great summertime indoor top to keep me from freezing in the AC. I also love that the zipper on the empire/mauve goes perfect with my snap rogas!!
