This jacket isn't actually made of real denim/chambray, but a luxuriously soft, thicker-weight cotton. It's beautifully dyed so that it's not quite uniform blue, but almost like watercolor blue. Hard to describe. It's honestly the perfect weight for Spring (60*F SF in Bay Area).
My only caveat is the fit. I'm 5-5.5" tall, 128 lbs, 34C, 28" waist, 35.75" hips, with broad shoulders, and bought an XS in this. If my hips were any wider than they are- the bottom hem would be too tight when zipped up. So pear-shaped ladies, and especially busty ladies, will definitely need to size-up in this.
It zips over my 34 C bust but with zero extra room. I took home the XS b/c I like a fitted look, and the S seemed baggy/longer when worn unzipped. Even in this XS, I had to cinch in the waist quite a bit. Since it's 100% cotton, I plan to have it dry-cleaned. No margin for shrinkage!
I thought my army-green anorak was the only jacket I would ever need as an effortless layer that matches everything, but I was wrong. This is my new go-to.

Perfect Spring-Fall layer in California!
If I lived in this south, this would be way too hot for spring and summer. It's lined, and not with a light polyester layer, with a soft cottony layer that makes it a little thicker. It's the perfect layer for cooler Spring weather in the Bay Area. I see this getting lots of use year-round. I like the contrast fabric on the inside. The chambray color has a striped beige and white fabric on the inside bodice and sleeves. I love this jacket so much I bought it full-priced. A few things about it that bother me a little, but didn't prevent me from buying it: 1) When you roll up the sleeves like in the photo, it is a little bulky and awkward and 2) The collar is floppy and doesn't stand up well. I don't really like jean on jean, either, but this is different. This is a jean jacket for people who don't like jean jackets, but need a layer like a jean jacket over dresses, tops, etc., and want something casually stylish!

I am in love with this jacket and am so glad I bought it! I actually bought the green color, which is exactly as pictured - a very light green with no fading like the blue version. The jacket does come with a disclaimer that the color of the jacket may fade and change after the first few washes but I love it so much that I won't care. For me, this jacket ran a little big as I ended up with an XS as opposed to my standard S. The S did fit but when left unzipped, it lacked structure and looked too large. The XS alleviated that and I am still able to wear it zipped comfortably. It is ridiculously soft and is nicely lined. It gives lightweight coverage and doesn't seem to be super wind resistant. I wore it out and about on a 60 degree, slightly windy day and was perfectly fine save for large wind gusts, which were a bit chilly. I didn't mine it one bit though!
I went to my local store to purchase the Maeve picnic days tee in the watermelon print. While I was there, I decided to look around and found this jacket. It first caught my attention because the fabric is VERY soft and the mint color is very pretty and different from what I typically wear. I don't usually like to pay full-price for things like this, but the mint color coordinated so well with the watermelon print tee that I tried them on together...and they look fabulous! I leave the tee untucked, and since the jacket is a bit cropped, the print really stands out underneath the jacket. The fit is also very good. It looked small on the hanger, so I originally tried on the medium, but it was too big, I purchased the small, which fits great (although the sleeves are much longer on me than the model in the picture). I actually have to cuff the sleeves just slightly to get them to hit at my wrist. Overall, I am thrilled with the purchase and think these two pieces make a great outfit. For reference, I am 5'5", 135-140 lbs, and 34C bust.

I have been looking for this type of blazer for a while and am glad that Anthro finally has one to offer.
I am a true petite (5' 1" and 103 lbs) and tried both XS and XSP. The XSP fit better - it is fitted in the body and the sleeves are just right - ends at the wrist. The XS felt "big" - loose in the body and longer in the sleeves. So, ultimately iit's your preference.
I've been getting more and more comfortable wearing fitted items - so, I went with the XSP.

Adorable blazer, very soft and comfortable. I found it to run tts. My usual size small fit perfectly. It has a nice fitted shape, not boxy. Only complaint is that the sleeves are a little long on me but otherwise perfect. I did not purchase the petite as I liked the length of the jacket. I purchased in gray and will probably also purchase the navy.
I received this jacket as a gift and was given the gift receipt in case I needed to return it. No need! This jacket is perfect for the summer and our warm fall. It fits perfectly and has some stretch to it so you don't feel confined. It has some distressing on the collar and throughout the jacket which gives it a trendy new feel and look. It is cropped which I like and looks great with maxi dresses and with white or blue denim. It runs pretty true to size maybe a little on the smaller side. Highly recommend!

Anthro has always carried the pilcro denim jacket in a variety of washes...every one of them is AMAZING. But FINALLY and just in time for summer, they came out with a WHITE DENIM JACKET! So so excited about this! The jacket runs a little small in the arms, but there is TONS of stretch (and I have bigger arms). I can usually wear a large, but I definitely needed an XL in this one. Its a bit cropped and has tons of super cool details to it...just like the regular pilcro denim jacket. I highly recommend this jacket. It will definitely be a summer staple! THANK YOU ANTHRO!

Perfect Little Jacket
The amazing thing about this jacket is that it stretches! If you have "strong arms," like me, I will recommend to get a size bigger than what you usually get and it will fit just perfect! Of course, I bought this jacket in the petite section but still, this jacket can run a little small. The material is fresh and it doesn't weight much, which sometimes most jackets do. It's just perfect for these summer days! I'm thrilled that ANTRHO carries petite sizes!
I recently purchased this item & haven't worn it yet, but so far from trying it on in the store I love it!
It certainly is not worn for warmth since it is very lightweight, but adds a lovely touch to a sleeveless top or over just about everything. I like the previous reviewers suggestion of wearing it over a white tank top & jeans!
I think it is prettier in person than in the pictures. The colors are softer & muted.
Can't wait to wear it!

This is just as it is pictured. I purchased it in store and it fits great. I wasn't sure with the one size fits all, but I'm 5'4", large busted, and typically an xl to plus size. The front of this can come together on me, no problem, and still be flowy- definitely not too small. The middle of the back is not as wide so it even gives a little shape and is very flattering and not sack-like as other kimonos I've tried.

this looks so much better in person! i've worn it several times and always get comments-it is super cool. it is thin and flowy and looks great with a white tank and jeans. i love it!
I looked at this jacket several occassions before trying on. I finally tried it and was surprised how wonderful it fit. I am a small frame and for me it fit TTS. I personally liked it better all zipped. The fabric and quality is beautiful. The bottom peplem is a slightly wide and a little stiff but overall I am very pleased with it.

Tight and structured
The coat is beautiful. I got a 6P and an 8P to try, but even those two were tight. The problem is that the waist is not elastic -- it is ribbon sewn. Beautiful construction, but the structure does not allow much give at all throughout the jacket. It is really tight around the waist, and even once that is closed, the peplum (that refers to the waistcoat flare) is more flared than expected. It cute be considered cute on some people, but it is almost comical on me with the way it stuck out. Perhaps it is not as bad on a thinner or truly hour-glass person. I had hoped to be able to wear it with pants, but considering the amount of flair (cute look) it has to be worn with a skirt.
I had considered wearing it simply wide open and never belted, but I would be doing the jacket injustice if I were only to keep it open. It is beautiful, but perhaps not for me. It is actually a lace jacket, very formal, so one has to wear something underneath it, and I cannot imagine it being truly casual or casual-formal mix. I was hoping to make it versatile, but with the other issues, I couldn't wear it all the time.
Love that it has pockets on the inside. Got a small. Fits perfectly. The back is a cropped length and the front is longer.

It's so exciting to find a jean jacket that doesn't make you look frumpy. The fabric has a little bit of stretch so you don't feel restricted, and the length is perfect for all of my high waisted pants and skirts. I'm 98 lbs and 5'1 and purchased an xxs petite and it fits better than I could have ever expected.
I honestly didn't think I would find a blazer because I'm super picky about what I do and don't like with any type of jacket, but I tried this on and it fit exactly how I wanted it to! I'm usually a medium but I fit in a small, I think it runs a bit large (I did just lose ten pounds though so that might have been part of it). I like how versatile the color is and how it feels like it should last for a few seasons!

Take Note of the Sleeves
Jacket body fits well but take note of the sleeves. Front few of jacket on model shows smooth 3/4 sleeves. Rear view looks like pushed-up sleeves with buttons. Just putting on the jacket gives you smooth sleeves. You have to work the sleeve fabric up toward your elbow to expose the buttons to get the pushed-up look. Either way they will remains 3/4 sleeves.
