I'd been eyeing this sweater online for a while, but the cream, which I really wanted, bounced out of stock many times and shipping is so expensive, I didn't place an order. Based on the catalog shot (of the blue variation), I wasn't sure this would be a good look on my figure, as I'm curvier on the bottom than on the top and it looks sort of short on that model, despite the description stating a length of 30". I took a trip to the store a week ago and saw a lone size S in the blue on the rack, and decided to try on, despite my usual size being M (I'm a solid 6/8 on top). It's perfect! Long, flattering, and just lovely. Plenty of room, M would definitely be too big. The blue color is a deep shade of sea blue and really brings out my eyes against my dark hair and fair skin. The knit is substantial, warm, and extremely cozy, yet the sweater drapes perfectly and has great movement. I love the cables and the button detail at the sides. Great touches. Happy with the blue! Might even watch for other colors if this ever reaches sale, though I doubt it will since it's so perfect.

Sooo cute and cozy!
I wouldn't have recognized this sweater from the picture, or even looked at it twice, because I don't think it's particularly flattering on the model, but when I saw it in the store in Petite sizing in the gray, I fell in love. The gray emphasizes the gorgeous cabling and it's sooo soft. It looks better a bit more fitted through the body so I'd say size down. I'm 5'1" and have a 32 DD chest and the PXS had plenty of room, even for a long sleeved tee underneath. I would have like to try the PXXS for comparison but they didn't have one and it may have emphasized the girls too much. It's a bit longer on me than on the model which I like with skinnies and the curved hem is flattering and lengthens the leg. I was irritated with myself for missing the sweater sale so I passed on this on Friday but couldn't get it out of my head so I snatched it up on Saturday. So glad I did. Love, love, LOVE!

Rarely do I buy the same piece of clothing in several different colors, but this sweater is an exception. I bought the purple one first because the other colors were sold out. I fell in love the second I put it on. It is stunning, having everything one could want in a sweater! I received SO many compliments that I picked up the neutral, then the grey. The neutral has contrasting tabs on the buttons, which the purple does not, so it has a little more character. When I received the grey one I was convinced that the designer had out done itself! It is so lush, and has the most contrasting hues of grey running through it, along with contrasting tabs over the buttons. This will be my go to sweater for the rest of my life!
This sweater caught my eye in store and I couldn't stop thinking about it so I ordered it online. I would have definitely paid full price but was thrilled to see it went on sale! I loved it so much I ended up purchasing in two colors. It is so comfy and is a staple item that goes with anything. I have the green and cream and they are both gorgeous. I wasn't a huge fan of the gray stripes, otherwise I would have bought that one too! THis was true to size, and perhaps just a touch roomy. I ordered my usual size small. I am 5'4" 140 lbs with broad shoulders. The regular size fit me but if you are any shorter that 5'4" I would probably get the petite size.

Great on trend coat/cardi
This hits all the on trend keys: fringe, blanket look, but it does it without the typical bulk. The back side solid panel is shaped so from the back does not make you look wide like many blanket coats do. I have this now in the tan and grey. If had the green in my size still left would have it too. Plan to where this as coat most of the time like that I can replace a hoodie with it for casual and can still where it with dress pants for work.

I bought this in all three colors
This is a wonderful sweater that I will keep for a very long time. I felt that it fit true to size and that the sleeves were just the right length. I love pairing this with skinny jeans or leggings and often just throw it on to get into carpool in the morning over my workout clothes. Probably one of my favorite purchases at Anthro and I was able to buy each one during one of the sales! Great job Sat/Sun!
OK. Pics do NOT do this poncho justice. Online I kind of looked at this like "oh, ok, cute, next..." but that is impossible to do when you see it in person. It is just too cute for words.
The maze color is so darn pretty. And there are these ADORABLE button closures under the sleeves. The design is awesome. Fits TTS, IMO. I vacillate between M and L, and because of the sleeve style I went with the large. If you tend to go between sizes and you have a small upper body frame, I would go to your lower end. If you are like me and have broad shoulders and larger arms, I would go with your larger size.
The ONLY caveat I would write is the sleeves are dolman. It comes down to a preference thing; for me, I am just not a huge fan of the style. But with that written this poncho can pull it off.
Get this sweater! It will work with jeans, leggings, and even skirts and is perfect for casual nights or can even be dressed up for the office. A real winner!

Want One In Every Color!
Purchased the Maize! I love, love, love it. Bought a Petite Medium. This Poncho is very forgiving, so I believe if you get your regular size or go up one size, it will fit perfectly. I am coming back and purchasing the Ivory. If I could I would also get the Two remaining colors. This is this perfect length for me. I am 5' and 125 lbs if this helps anyone. I think I could of gotten a small but love the way the medium fit. The sleeves are also the perfect length. Very cuddly sweater and oh soooo flattering. This was money well spent. It's like putting on your favorite sweatshirt, as far as comfort, only you look so classy in this! Love the design in the Poncho also. Honestly some one hit it out of the park on this one as far as design. If your size is available, grab one before there Gone. Highly recommend this sweater!

Beautiful addition to your fall wardrobe
When I saw this sweater in the catalog I was instantly obsessed and so happy when I saw it in person at my local Anthro store. I tried on both the M and L as I tend to run in between sizes. Both sizes fit, but I felt that sizing up was best for my frame. I am broader through the shoulders then the hips and I have a longish torso. Although the M fit, whenever I raised my arms the sweater came up too much for my comfort showing my tummy. I would say that if you have a smaller frame up top, go with your normal size but if you have a longer torso or broader shoulders, size up.
The sweater is made of cotton for anyone whose skin is sensitive to wool. My only complaint is the price, I hate paying full price, but the detailing on the sweater won me over and I thought that this is the kind of sweater that will not see the sales rack for a long time.
I plan to wear this sweater with skinny jeans and cute flats or riding boots.
I happened to notice this top during the sweater sale and picked it up in two colors, the dark orange and the green. I'm petite and usually wear size 4 or S, but got this in XSP. It's quite oversized; I could have easily worn XXSP. I was skeptical about the length - I'm not fond of tunics, but it's shorter than it appears on the photos, hitting at low hip. The sleeves are also shorter, hitting just below the elbow. Had I not sized down, it probably would have fit more like the model. The 'dark orange' is not as red as it appears in the photo, but it's not orange either - more of a brick red or reddish brown. Still, I like the color. The fabric is lightweight bur warm. It drapes well and can be easily layered or belted. It's a great sweater to wear when you want to be comfortable but still look stylish. I really like it and would buy more colors if they were available in my size. I did find the fabric a bit itchy, probably due to the wool, and I wish it had full-length sleeves. Other than that, it's great.

I have the Ivory in Small and I love love love this top. It covers the hips, lays so nicely down your body, and is super soft. It's exactly what I wanted and I love the slits on the sides for some extra leg showing. Its so pretty and I get a ton of compliments.

I love how soft this cowl neck is, and it comes in so many great colors. It's a wonderful layering piece, and with the right accessories, you can dress it up or use it for lounge wear. I feel like I have been living in this so far this winter. Definitely size down, but it has a nice oversized fit and high low style. Be aware of the seam down the front and back, some people don't like those, but I think it's cool!
I had this sweater in M/L my basket. I didn't act quick enough and it was gone. I was so disappointed! I went to Anthro. today to made some returns. I found this sweater and tried it on in the XS/S. I know that sounds ridiculous but I just loved it. It still looked really great! The compromise? It doesn't sit as long and more cropped. Also, the sleeves are a little bit shorter. Other than that, it still looks great! I'm on the cusp of a M/L. I ordered all my other Anthro online items in a Large and they were all way too big. I'm keeping one of them anyway because I am just in love with the product. I'm 5'7" and weigh about 160 lbs. Curvy, but still athletic. Hope this helps as I always look at reviews before ordering.
And if this helps any, many of the items I tired on in the Anthro store today ran large. Happy Anthro Shopping!

Beautiful cozy sweater
I don't own any sweaters like this one, and I was hesitant to purchase it, but I'm so thrilled that I did! It is a beautiful sweater, the wool is so soft and is a really great color. I love how it "sits" on me, it drapes but still feels really cozy. There is the unique big pin closure and although it is attached on one end, you can still close the sweater in different ways so producing different looks. I'm about 5'5" and 130 pounds and the XS/S is, I believe a good size. I don't think I would want to go any larger. I rated the sweater as "runs large" only because it isn't fitted, but its such a great style and so wearable!

I love the chunky style of this sweater. It is gorgeous in person and has a great hand and small details such as the safety pin closure. It's great for those days where there is a chill in the air but you don't want to wear a coat!
I saw this top, in Royal Blue sized Large, on the sale rack and could not wait to try it on. It fit true to size, hitting just at my hips and the sleeves hit just above the wrists. As I am petite with a stocky build, I am very happy with this top. The dolman sleeves are flattering on my broad shoulders. I really like the chiffon insets along the shoulders and arms. I can even push the sleeves up comfortably. I have already worn it several times. This top is really cute with skinny jeans (paired with wedge booties) or leggings (paired with either knee high boots or flats). Get this top if you can still find it, as it is sold out online.

Effortless and Versatile
This top comes in an array of colors that will enhance anyone’s current wardrobe. I am 5’2 with a 32 DD bust so I was apprehensive at first glance with the roomy shape it has. I was wrong! This top is extremely flattering on my small frame. I’ve also seen it on several customers, with many different body types and it has been flattering on all. I recommend sizing down to get the best fit. The top is very versatile and I’m able to wear it with a great pair of denim or tucking the front into a pencil skirt to dress it up. I tend to go with neutral colors (mostly black) and I ended up falling in love with it in the blue. This item is a must have!

Purchased this in the black a couple of days ago and really love it. It is of good quality, basic style (read: wardrobe staple) with a stylish twist - the sheer panel down the sleeve. I wore it in Sactown today at 100 degrees, and with the sleeves pushed up, it was not too hot. It is lightweight knit and really well made. Would like other colors; we'll see how my self-restraint holds out.
It runs a bit big, as it is a loose-fitting style. I took a Small (5'8" 133 lbs) but usually take a M in tops and an 8 in skirts @ Anthro.
Who doesn’t get excited when the Anthro box arrives in the mail? I had reason to be thrilled after unwrapping this gorgeous sweater. Flattering fit and luxurious fabric make this worth purchasing. I can’t imagine any woman looking less than stunning in this sweater! As other reviewers noted, the plum is much more brown than expected which is the main reason this gets a four rather than a five star rating. If only there was a more accurate way to portray colours online; it would save us online shoppers a lot of frustration. I would have ordered a different colour had I known because this wasn’t a perfect match for the plummy separates I was planning to pair this with but beyond that I have no quarrel with this purchase; it is a chic and timeless design. Looks good with everything and I had great fun trying it on with dresses, skinnies and slacks. Highly recommended.

This is a great fall sweater, and a bit more fitted than I thought it appeared in the photos. It is quality fabric and knitting. The "plum" color is a bit more of a brownish hue than it appears in the photos (which look a bit red or maroon), but it is still very pretty. Fit and feel is very feminine while still cozy.

It was like Love at first touch! This sweater is perfect. So soft and warm and it looks beautiful, so much that I got it in two colors! Dress it up or down, you just can't go wrong with this cardigan!
