My first review and for an item that I will wear non-stop. I had been putting off buying/wearing a jean jacket for fear I could not pull it off. Whoa! was I wrong!! This jacket is so versatile, I have worn it with jeans (of-course), full and maxi skirts, tuxedo and linen pants so far, and have only owned it for 2 weeks. The crafting of the stitching creates slimming lines which draws the eyes to a reveal a smaller waist. The leather end tabs give a distinct touch of quality, I love how soft and yet sturdy this jacket feels. Most of all, as mentioned previously, I love the inside pockets which are perfect for phone, car key and small coin purse for that quick run into the store. I did go up a size, normally a medium. 5'1" 38DD I wanted ease of buttoning when I felt like it and the ability to raise my arms easier to get items off higher shelves. Also, after some debate I did not order the petite option, the 1-inch difference wasn't enough for me to be without this jacket any-longer, I for one like longer arm length to cover my wrists and not be just at or above them. This jacket is my new favorite wardrobe staple. Love It!!!

Best Fit Ever!
I Love This Jacket! My daughter and I went to Anthro today and she grabbed this jacket on the way to the dressing room. I have been wanting a denim jacket with an updated fit and look for years, but frankly had given up. I saw her try on the XS and fell in love! I tried a S and it fit perfectly! This jacket is cut high in the back and has absolutely no extra bulk...it just fits and flares along with your natural curves every inch of the way. There is 2% Spandex, so the sleeves are not vices on your arms and it just feels perfect. There are lots of subtle details in the pockets, collar and leather tabs. Really, this is an amazing buy, as it is very flattering.
The extra small was slightly tight in the bustline for my daughter, so she is ordering the Petite S online, which she hopes will fix that issue. I have a 34D bust and the S fits just fine.

I love that this jacket is a little shorter in the back, it wears well with higher waisted items, like dresses and tunics. I was not looking for a jacket but decided to get it anyway. Love it. My go to for summer (cold office)
This is a beautiful piece, and I have received many compliments on it. I also just washed it on the "silk" setting of my front-loading washing machine, and it came out just fine (ignore the Dry Clean Only label). Of course, you will want to hang to dry.
Anyway, the only slight issue I have is that the armholes are so large that I have caught them on chairs and door handles multiple times! Not the best if you're the type of person who moves around a lot and is prone to wide, sweeping gestures. :)
But, as it is silk, it has not torn, so i just need to be more conscientious when I wear it.

This is such a beautiful kimono! The floral pattern is feminine and exquisite. The material is super lightweight and floats when you move making it ethereal looking. I took one star off for quality because since the material is so thin and delicate it might easily snag and get holes which would be devastating given the price. You might need to be aware of jewelry you're wearing with it and be extra careful. After reading other reviews on the size I decided to order the petite. I think it fits my 5'4 frame perfectly without it looking overpowering or like a bath robe. I am so happy I have this kimono hanging in my closet! If it ever comes back in stock be sure to grab it asap!

Love it, try the petite!
I purchased a cheaper kimono style "jacket" last spring and it looked pretty bad, I had all but written off the style but this version really grabbed me. I read through the reviews and saw the comments about it being overwhelming and robe like - and thought hard about whether to order to not but decided to give the petite version a try (I'm 5' 4" so right on that bubble but I'm medium boned so...). Anyhow, it just came and I LOVE it. I would not hesitate if you are thinking on ordering it. I put it on as soon as it came out of the package and I'm wearing a black pencil skirt and t-shirt and it made my outfit look far chicer.
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!
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.
Just received this beautiful jacket unfortunately I have fat arms and the sleeves are very tight on me I'm going to have to return it wish that it fit me better but I would recommend it to anybody that doesn't have fat arms

Unique floral pattern
I love the colors and floral pattern design of this article. I would not call it a "Trench" but rather a wrap dress. I ordered it in a Medium Petite but it didn't fit me. It was too tight under the arms so I am exchanging it for a regular medium size. This looks great with just about anything you have in your closet. Jeans, dresses, capri's, shorts, leggings. Oh, and you could also use it as a robe! The material is polyester so that is more of a dress material and not really a trench coat.
