Received lots of compliments and fit great - enough pizazz without being too much
This fir perfectly - I wore it over a black dress with black boots. I received many compliments and the pewter color really complimented my pale skin and red hair. It was fun without being too flashy!

Power Blazer
This blazer has amazing, intricate detail. It's subtle, yet striking. The photo does not do it justice. It easily pairs with a dress, or can be dressed casually with black skinnies. It's one of those clothing pieces that just makes you feel strong when you wear it.

Very shiny!
Wore this to a girls wine night - friends loved it! Fit was an issue as I am petite had to double cuff the sleeves but I thought it looked ok. Fit well around the body but felt snug in the arms maybe should have gone up a size but I have kind of bigger muscular arms. Very fun and a bit of a purple cast needs something simple underneath

fine jacket. A little too old for me once I saw it in person.

Adds some flare to an LBD
This blazer worked perfectly for me to wear to my husband's holiday party. I wore it over top of a black Herver Leger dress. I have a very straight figure, so it flared out a little at my hips, but was not too much of an issue as it gave a little shape to the outfit. Like other reviewers said, it does have a little more of a purple sheen to it than is shown in the RTR pictures, but I still thought the metallic look was very festive. I received many compliments, and enjoyed wearing it! My only complaint was that the lining of the sleeves kept slipping down a little so it showed beyond the cuff. I wouldn't count on rolling the sleeves up, FYI.

Metallic brocade, sophisticated and fun.
More purple in person than in the picture. Cute with black pants for a night out.

Out of the ordinary look for a keynote speech
I wore this for a keynote speech. I wore a plain black dress underneath and had a similar look to the model. It was comfortable, really cool color, and is great if you'd like to stand out in a sea of black, grey, and tan Blazers. I received lots of compliments.

Odd Color, Odd Fabric, Good Fit
I could see wearing this with leather leggings in the fall or winter, but it's a really difficult match for summer or spring. The fabric is much more purple/plum, with a metallic tapestry thing going on. The fit was good, but I didn't like the look, so just returned it to RTR without wearing it.

Date night jacket, probably not for work
I was going to wear this to work, however it is much shinier and more purple than the photo. Other commenters said it was bronze. Perhaps there is variation between jackets as mine was definitely purple. It didn't really work for the office but would be great over a black dress or black leather pants for night time. The 0 was nice and tight on me (I like snug, fitted jackets as they look more feminine) and the length was a little longer than a normal jacket but nice.

Standout piece at a seminar
The blazer really makes an outfit on its own. It is more brown bronze than it looked to me in picture. I wore it to a seminar at a country club with heavy air conditioning so kept jacket on. Got comments on its unusual appearance. Great piece to rent as wouldn't want to wear too often.

I am broad shoulder so I did not end being able to wear this jacket. But it was very pretty! More purple than I thought it was going to be.

Perfect for a Valentine's Day date <3
I wore this for Valentine's Day, and my hubby loved! I got a lot of compliments, and would definitely rent again. As expected the sleeves were too long for me (but this always happens with every jacket).

Couldn't figure out where to wear this!
Got this in an Unlimited shipment. The fabric is heavy, shiny purple brocade, which I loved. But, it was too much for work or date night. Really wanted to wear this but couldn't figure out an occasion, so I sent it back to get a new Unlimited choice. Maybe good for a business cocktail party, but I didn't have one of those coming up soon.

Compliments Galore
This is much prettier in person. The fabric looks like shiny leather. It's not too heavy so can be worn year round. It can be worn casually as I did or it can be dressed up. I'm trying to upload more than 1 photo to show the back.

The color is more bronze than silver. It's cute, but it doesn't look like the picture.

Felt great in this jacket.
Ran a bit small for me - usually wear a size 8. Was very fitted and looked great with plain black dress.

Cute but not quite my style.
I like the metallic, but the fabric was a bit too stiff for me, and not causal enough for my work place.

Boxy
I wanted so much to love this blazer, but upon trying it on, it was HUGE on me. The cut of the blazer seems more of a man cut than a women's, so if you wanted to pair this with a tighter dress, I would recommend sizing down below your normal size to try and get some sort of a silhouette with it. In addition, the color was more of a purple-ish metallic, as opposed to a pewter, which wasn't what I was looking for. The pattern is great, and the blazer is high quality, but the fit just didn't work out.

Runs big.. Listen to the reviews
I was trying to decide between 6 and 8.. I ended up ordering the 6 b/c the reviews say it runs big.. The 6 is way to big on me too. Should've ordered the 4! The 6 I couldn't wear w/o looking messy. Pretty blazer though. Looks darker, like black behind the bronze detail. Beautiful!

Classy and elegant. Jazzy enough to stand alone with jeans or to dress up over a plain dress.
Fits wonderful. Warm. Not good for summer nights.

Made a simple black dress stand out!
I paired this with the rent the runway donna karen piano key dress for a work event. The look was professional, polished and looked expensive! I have a longer torso and this blazer hit perfectly by my hip bone.

Color is different from the picture!
This jacket is quite bulky and is not the same color as the picture. It is a bronze/brown type of color. It is definitely unique and pretty, but not like what is pictured. I would not order again.

Runs large, but very pretty!
I usually wear a size 0 in Victoria's secret blazers and a small or 2 in others. This one was huge on me, the sleeves were pretty long and the waist and sholders seemed larger than usual. I wish I had gotten the 0!
