I bought the turquoise version in size XL and it fits pretty close to what is pictured. I found it a little smaller & shorter but still comfortable. I had to stretch out the inside portion of the arms to make it looser. The mix of colors is just as pretty in person as in the photos. The lighter shade of robin's egg blue is flattering & I love the mix with the teal. The textures are fantastic. My daughter said she wanted to hug me more when I wore this. It is so soft. I've worn it twice and it hasn't pilled. It is a good medium weight so I'll use this for winter & colder spring days. If you want a looser fit, I recommend sizing up.

Beautiful and luxurious
This sweater is gorgeous and soft. Very high quality materials and design. It is so warm and cozy- I got it in the beige/white- there is definitely more of a contrast in colors in real life than the picture, which I liked. It does flare out a bit at the hips as one user noted, but it doesn't really bother me. I can't wait to wear it!

UNIQUE & CHIC
This is such a unique cardigan - and what a pleasing color palette too.
I bought the teal in XSP - and it fits so snug !
The contrast between the sweater-like material with a textural design and soft matte felt is just lovey...and definitely keeps me warm.
the photos do not do this sweater justice. i never wear cream because it washes me out. the color is more than just cream - there is a lovely pink hue to it that actually compliments my skin tone! i love the detail around the neck and the asymmetrical waistline. looks great alone, over a long tank or tee, and a button down shirt. although i tend to wear size medium, i bought a size large and it fits perfect.

This sweater is amazing. I would have never tried this on in the store because its not something i would regularly gravitate to. I am an actress and tried this on at a wardrobe fitting for a bank commercial. I loved it so much that i went to Anthro to get it the following week.

I recently purchased this sweater in the cream color. It is beautiful, the pictures online don't do it justice. It is cropped so it comes up higher in the front. My favorite details are the buttons down the back and the braided detail around the collar. I have pale skin and red hair so the color really compliments my complexion. I wear the sweater with high waisted jeans and booties. I have had quite a few compliments. Definitely worth the price.
The colors of this vest make it stand out from all the blah winter shades; it will perk you up now and it's the perfect piece to take you into Spring. I practically ran to it! It looks best as worn by the model; the front will look like you have a beautiful shawl wrapped around you. Also super flattering from the back view with it's verrtical lines. Very soft and light, I think it still has a bit of warmth. Nice layering piece. The slight touch of mohair (not itchy but fuzzy!) is just on the outer edges, not by your face or neck. Delicate though for sure, but that's what gives it it's special handmade look. Just beware of catching. Fit is TTS for things that have just 2 size ranges. I took my usual m/l , I'm petite and the length is fine (covering my butt in the back). I'm planning to wear it over recently purchased Long Form Tees from Pure and Good, so many colors go nicely!

M/L can work for XL
I usually take a size XL or 14 in Anthro tops but decided to order this vest in the M/L. It fits great--not as roomy on me as shown in the model's photos. But, the knit has stretch and overall looks more tailored through the shoulders & back instead of being a little flowier like on the model. I wear mine as a shawl collar since I don't like extra material around my neck. It looks good belted too. I bought the Long-Form Tee in the Slate which is a perfect match for the blue in the pattern. It's such a soft & pretty sweater!

Perfect California weather sweater! xoxo
LOVE THIS sweater. The colors are more muted than the photo appears just so you know. However I still love it. I think the xs/sm or the med/lg would fit anyone. The main difference is length. Im 5' 10" and the longer was better for me. You can wear it as the photo shows or more like a vest if you bunch of the fabric. I think the vest way is even cuter. I rarely buy a full price sweater since I live in CA but this is perfect year round for where I live. Dress it up or down. Don't wait for it to go on sale...this one won't make it to the sale rack.
I purchased this cardigan as soon as I was able to try it on in a store, which is 2 hours away from where I live! The sweater is true to size and the colors range from a soft white to petal to a teal. I wore this cardigan with a teal cashmere turtleneck sweater and there was no shedding on my other sweater. The texture is very soft and the only issue I had when purchasing was the inconsistency in the length of the sweater within the same size. I tried on two regular XS's and one was longer than the other, with the same thing occurring with the size SM. I ended up purchasing the XS with the shorter length. For reference, I am 5'3" and normally wear an XS on the top, but I am a size 6 on the bottom and with a long cardigan, such as this, I sometimes need to go to a bigger size to accommodate my bottom half. I paid full price for the cardigan and I feel my money was well spent on this purchase!

A beautiful duster!
I had a return to deliver to my local Anthro store, saw this sweater and had to try it on. It is GORGEOUS! The sweater is soft, with colors of cream, pale pink and peach and blue. This can work for fall or spring. The look is elegant and the weave is sooooo soft! I ordered an extra small and it fit perfectly.

Love this sweater. Fits beautifully, drapes gracefully and looks neat and stylish. The texture is soft and rich. Overall a beautiful piece of clothing.
I liked the sweater more in person than on photo. It is romantic and intricate yet fitting and figure flattering on my 5.7, hourglass figure. I do not know how well it will wear, although sweaters from Anthropologie tend to stay my favorites for years, so i hope i'll enjoy it as much as the other ones. This sweater is both beautiful in cream and brown color. The back is longer, and it makes a nice drape around the curves of my figure. I think it is suitable for the spring weather, but not too thin either. Could be worn with pants, dresses or skirts, a very lovely romantic piece.

This sweater is really beautiful. I ordered the brown color for my mom, and it is lovely (she hasn't opened it or tried it on yet, so I can't comment on fit/size), but it feels soft and looks really great. My only complaint is that the material has acrylic in it, which I was specifically avoiding as I browsed the sweaters on the website. The description lists a lot of the material's contents, but it omits acrylic. That was disappointing -- I probably wouldn't have chosen it as a gift for my mother if I had known.
That said, it does appear to be beautifully made and more attractive in real life than in the photo.
I bought the blue version of this sweater, despite a review that suggested the fit was poor. While I understand and somewhat agree with that review, as the sleeves are slightly long, I don't think it's a reason not to give this sweater a shot. I suspect the sizing of the sleeves will depend on your own body shape and arm length. While the sleeves are just slightly long on me, they are not too long and I only noticed the length (because of the other review) when trying it on. I don't even notice the length anymore.
I actually love the sweater and find it super warm. It's become one of my go-to sweaters. It is thinner than I expected, especially for the price, but it's still warm. Given its thinness, I don't think it's worth the original cost or even the sale cost, but - with 40% off - it's worth it.
