The material is soft and comfortable. The colors on both sides are deep and vibrant. There is not a lot of diffence between the 2 looks but it is defintely reversible which is nice. It has buttons down the front which is nice because sometimes cloaks tend to slide off. The attached scarf can be around your neck or just hang down giving it 2 different looks. It can be casual or dressy because of the rich colors. Love It !!!!!!!!
