I love this little jacket, perfect for a windy day. Love the striped print and relaxed style. Only thing I didn't quite care for, was the jersey lining that is not connected to the main jacket. BESIDES that, I had to have this in my closet.
If you have wide shoulders, I would maybe size up so you are not stressing the back into a future hole!
I got a Large for this reason, but returned due to too much fabric in front. Ended up getting a Medium because it ultimately works for me!

I purchased this in my regular anthro. size M. I am 5'7" 135lbs. It is made of sweatshirt material. It is a very nice weight not too heavy and drapes lovely. It is just as pictured and I love the lace detail down the back and on the arms. It also has a working drawstring on the hood and one that is for the back /bottom of the jacket. I do not think I would ever use both of these drawstrings but it is a nice detail. There is a front drapey lining that you see and I am not sure how much I like this but it does add some character to the jacket. I do hope it lies nicely when I wear it. I am glad I purchased it and now I need some weather to wear it. Worth the money.

Cross Between Cloak and Sweatshirt
I love the colors and lace details on this sweatshirt and tried it on with some tops right away in the store. I bought it a week or so later and, despite the fact that I think it is beautiful, I was a little on the fence. The small runs large, but the piece is meant to be flowey/drapey so I kept it. It is very comfortable! It almost wears like a cloak when you tie the top drawstring. It looks great over a dress or with a t-shirt and jeans. I ended up keeping it because of the pretty lace detailing and the overall coziness.
I tried this on in the store and wanted to take it home immediately, however I was there to purchase something else and did not have the extra $200 so I walked out not being able to think about anything else but getting this cardigan. needless to say I budgeted it in and Ordered it the next day. it is that perfect summer piece that is airy enough to wear in normal to extremely hot climates, I am large chested and there are times I do not feel comfortable running out of the house in just a tank top, I want to look a little more finished and this will serve that purpose and then some. It is just so beautiful and wonderfully made. It looks incredible with the huge statement circled horn necklace and horn cuff bracelet that Anthro is carrying in the summer accessory line, all you need are those three pieces and you're ready to go anywhere at anytime....and stand out in a great way!

Perfect wardrobe addition
This will be a perfect addition to simple tshirts and jeans, leggings, etc. it can dress up your day to evening outfit with a simple necklace and shoe change. I will be packing this on my next spring vacation. It will come in handy when I need a light sweater for cooler temperatures. I purchased a medium and it was ample in size. If you are smaller framed, you might consider ordering down a size. Otherwise, the roomy cardigan can house bulkier sweaters and tops until the temps start to rise.

I plan on pairing this with two different jumpers I have. One has spaghetti straps and the other has no straps. I like how it is a bit see through so that people can still see your shape, and clothes, but there is still the element of coverage and comfort. It is also a lovely neutral color that will pair well with my usual quite colorful items :) I look forward to wearing this!
I bought the purple after some hesitation. I wasn't sure that the color would match with clothing I own, I was worried it would slip off my shoulders too much, and I was weary that the weave would snag. After one week I kept thinking about the sweater, so I went back and bought it. I've only worn it over dresses & a jumpsuit & so far and it's great! It matches with way more items than I had anticipated; prints and solids alike. I used it on a vacation in a desert climate over a sundress and it was nice to have at night when temps cooled down. The sweater is also office appropriate (at least for my setting). I have been wearing it open and tied in the back. So far no snags to speak of & no sliding off my shoulders.

On the Fence
I really want to love and keep this. I purchased the brown color. I loved it in the store, but when I got it home and tried it on with things in my closet, I became unsure. I bought my usual size and it fits as it does on the model. The 'brown' color, which I'd describe as rust or russet is beautiful and rich. My uncertainty stems from being worried that on, it looks like a short bath robe. The pictures with the cardigan styled open are a bit misleading. The belt isn't detachable and the only way to wear it open would be to tie the belt behind you or leave it hanging long by your sides. At this price point, I think that is asking to much. Also, the slight sheen of the material isn't my favorite aspect of the cardigan. I do love the woven pattern and the sweater is light weight. I'm thinking I will keep it for the hard-to-find color and be careful with how I style it.

This cardigan is simply my new favorite. I was afraid it might look too baggy on me but it looked amazing. the design is truly flattering on my body and defines my waste line because of the attached belt to the back and it also doesn't grab attention to my stomach area at all.
I found the sleeves to be just a little too short on me even though I don't have long arms but it didn't bother me that much.
I believe this piece will complete many cute and simple outfits. It's light weight so you can wear in summer easily without breaking a sweat.
I purchased it in the brown color but I see it more of a maroon shade and might buy it in Lilac too.
This is such a great transitional piece. Its warm enough to still wear at the end of winter, and light enough to bring into the spring season.
I purchased the cream color and it lays beautifully, not too sheer and doesn't grab. Im usually XL, and was able to get away with a Large. This top is pretty roomy and has a nice hand without looking bulky. I want it in every color!

love this top!!
I purchased the moss color in the store and just ordered the black online. Love this top, love the buttons in the back and super versatile. Highly recommend for the perfect spring / summer weight sweater top.

I have this top in all three colors. I love it. It's lightweight and can be worn so many different ways. It's the perfect piece for transitioning into spring. I like the buttons on the back - it adds a little character. I got my normal size (large) and it fits great - not very fitted which is how I like it.
This jacket is so comfortable - it feels as soft as a sweatshirt. The patterning is beautiful and the edgings make this jacket even more special. It easily dresses up an outfit and is great with jeans.
I bought it full price and I've worn it several times already. I had no issues with the color and the fit is stretchy and the Medium covers my 34EE chest without gaps - although there are no closures for this jacket.

May need a collar brooch
I am enjoying this little jacket and find it comfortable as well as just the right amount of warm for the office. I have paired mine with a long black pop over as well as a long and finely striped white/black button down with leggings. The collar, however, is odd, as it protrudes quite a bit and has no way to hold it closed. You can see this in the photo but the models hair obscures the problem area. I close mine together and put a pretty brooch over both layers, making it look a tad quirky and fun.
I just got this in the mail today. My usual size medium fit well in the shoulders and sleeves, but this does run a little wide in the bodice. (the bottom hem kind of poofs out at the side seams for me) Although the best part about this sweater is the fact that the collar and lapel are nicely tacked down. You never have to worry about it NOT laying flat or flipping around on you. The weight will be nice for wearing over tanks in the spring and summer. Still undecided if I'm keeping this one just because of the poofy sides. A little less noticeable if I wear it open which I probably always would.

VERSATILE LITTLE GEM
This fabulous little piece will transcend the seasons. It is soft, well-made, comfortable and so stylish. The colour blend looks amazing with navy...terrific with grey...compliments black and makes cream really dance. It is just such a stunning little winner. I could rave on and on. Such a great purchase.
I was looking for a few pieces for my spring break trip to Florida and I thought this would be perfect. it's great to where to the beach with my swimsuit under it and a big floppy sun hat, or just during the day with a nude cami underneath. Its so comfortable because it flows, and I never got to hot because it's open, lacey design.

Too cute to pass up!
Spotted this top on Anthro Day & just had to try it on. The XS/S fit perfectly & looks on me as in the model pic. I am usually XS or S so wld say fits tts. It does have a special prettiness abt it. You will need wear a separate tank underneath.
