I wasn't too sure what to expected it to look like in person but it is very unique and funky. The fabric itself is not shiny per se however it does reflect the light. I've uploaded a photo of the material underneath fluorescent lighting which hopefully shows what I mean. It does fit a little on the large side however I prefer that fit personally so I will be keeping it. I have a feeling it will look really cool with a pair of faux leather leggings that I have from Reitmans.
