The Novella jacket is as stylish as it is functional. This cosy bomber jacket is hand knitted from a plush faux fur and has a loose fit defined by a ribbed hem and sleeve cuff which flatters the lushness. Complete with a smooth lightweight lining for easy layering.

The most common question we get is what is the fit like? Well the answer is our Novella bomber jacket has quite a flexible fit. Being that it is a knitted faux fur outer, and lightweight lining on the inner. It’s a true to size fit and still allows a bit of room for layering over lightweight knits and blouses. If you're between two sizes you may prefer the look of the smaller one, just keep in mind you may not be able to layer it over thick knits and if you are fuller in the stomach and wearing the jacket with the zip done up you may find the ribbed hem to be on the tighter side as the ribbing is sturdy.

Love at first sight!

Such a beautiful jacket! Amazing quality, looks great dressed up for a night out or worn casually with a pair of your favourite sneakers. Measurements and description on the website made choosing my size a breeze.

A little Snug!

I am a standard 8, but found this jacket a little too small. I am also 175cm and so often struggle with things being too short and this was no exception. Not quite the ‘roomy fit’ the description implied.

I also find the returns process less than satisfactory. If there is no ‘physical store’ to try things on, the online returns process needs to be more flexible. This turns me off buying things in the future. More than $20 discount and you can’t return it? This is almost impossible given the numerous promotions you offer VIP customers. Please be more flexible with your online returns. Your clothing is beautiful, but I can’t risk it when I’m not 100% sure it will be suitable and should always have the option to return it if it’s not quite right. Sure, a 14 day return period is appropriate, and ‘final sale’ items can be exempt, but an arbitrary $20 discount? That’s not fair.

We can also see that you are Melbourne based & would love to see you at one of our styling days where we invite our customers to try on, receive fit & styling advice & purchase direct from our website. In addition, we have over 100 stockists nationwide & would be more than happy to locate your nearest stockists who order items you are interested in trying on. Our main aim is to ensure that our customers love their OnceWas purchases & as you don’t seem to be 100% happy with the fit of your bomber, we will be in touch via email today to see how we can assist.

My new favourite jacket!

As a self confessed jacket addict, this gorgeous piece is my new winter favourite. Looks great paired with jeans and sneakers for casual weekend wear or throw over a dress for glam evening. Plus it is super warm.
