This sweater is mega cozy and mega cute! I got the burnt orange color and its divine. The design is so fun and so ANTHRO! I ordered an XL because I love an oversized sweater, and I found that it fits like a dream. I think the sleeves are long and the sweater style is a bit oversized...but I'd still say to order TTS unless you want it to be less oversized. Downside for sure is that it sheds...but that's gotta stop eventually, right? I think the design is worth the shedding!

Honest review. Beautifully made. Runs large.
Love the way this sweater is made and how it feels. I bought the black/grey sweater and it's a beautiful combo. It's not too itchy based on other reviews. I mean, if you didn't wear anything under the sweater, then it might be itchy. However, I've had itchier sweaters and would be comfortable in this. I'm a Medium/Large and bought the Large (Size 12 and 5'7"). It is WAY TOO BIG for me and fits like a swing coat. I'm not sure if I exchanged it for the Medium if it would fit better. Looking at the thin model, I don't know how the back of the sweater sits against her back. Not sure if they pinned it from the front. Belted this would look better, but it will have a lot of extra fabric. I want to try the Medium but I'm not sure the back of the sweater will fit against my back. Think I have to return it. If you're thin, the way the sweater will hang on you will be fine. If you are curvy like me, it might make you look bigger. Just gorgeous though. The orange looks nice too. Hope this review helps as I refer to reviews before I purchase.

I was so excited to see this product was on sale (I had been stalking it for a while). I purchased it, it arrived promptly, and when I tried it on it was instant love. The sweater is so cozy and wonderful for cuddling up and watching tv, but also has functional value outside of the house. I love the way the model in the picture paired it with a belt, and many t-shirt color combinations will look great with the color. The sweater does run a little big; I ordered a large and am short enough to have it cover my butt with leggings. Would definitely recommend!
I received this in the mail on Wednesday - wore it with black leggings and riding boots on Thursday and received countless compliments. The knit is chunky but not bulky, the detailing on the back is beautiful, and it looks very expensive. At 5' 3", I was a bit concerned that it would be overwhelming but it seems perfectly proportional for small and tall women. At the sale price, it is an absolute steal! The only note I would add is that it looks like it is warmer than it actually is... for our mild southern winters, it's fine, but it doesn't provide enough warmth to be worn alone anywhere that's really cold.

This vest is so beautiful and it fits over-sized but not ridiculously so, just enough to give it movement. Now the bad. Somebody else mentioned in the reviews that it sheds like crazy, yes the fringes do. Why Anthropologie design so beautiful of a sweater and ruins it with so cheap material for fringes. As I got it on super sale, and didn't want to return it, then I exchanged the fringes for others. I went to my local craft store and bought a yarn very similar to the one crocheted on the vest which doesn't shed. The fix cost me $5 plus one hour of work, but now I can wear them with beige pants without them turning black because of so much shedding, and for that one star less.

The photo online does this cardigan no justice at all! I saw it in the store and thought it was unique and pretty, then I tried it on and was blown away! It was just stunning on! It hung perfect in all the right places and the design on the back is just beautiful! I happened to be wearing a long sleeve black tee, jeans and black motorcycle boots...and the outfit looked spectacular, although I can envision many different ways to wear this! For me this was a must have even though it was a bit pricey!
I love my new sweater. I was eyeing it online and decided to give it a look when I was at the shop yesterday. They only had mediums left in stock and I always wear a L/XL, but it looked roomy. IT IS HUGE! Thank goodness I tried it on because I was planning to order the L online. I am 6 feet tall so I love the way it cinches in at the bottom and helps to define my waist line. The sleeves hit my ape arms just past my elbow and the cowlneck very full. I wrap it around my neck to block out the chill in the morning, fold it over and let it hang a little in front once I'm in the office. The grey color is very pretty too. It is something of a charcoal grey but with lavendar/mauve undertones.
My only concern is that the soft cozy yarns will pill and I'll be picking little balls off this sweater in subsequent wearings.

Very cozy, versatile sweater
Ordered this in the purple color, which is a lovely smoke greyish purple Very soft and have already gotten several compliments. I'm 31 weeks pregnant right now and it fits, so that's a bonus! Hope it washes well.

I am tall and slender with a long torso so this pullover tunic/sweater works out perfectly for me. I purchased it in the oxford (darker) color and couldn't be happier. This sweater is bulky & large but hangs well. It can be dressed up or down. If you don't like big collars or chunky sweaters then you probably won't like this. It has a huge collar which can be worn on or off the shoulders. It's very versatile.
I'm pretty petite and I found this cardigan fit me well. Usually I have to roll sleeves of cardigans up, but this one hit just right at my wrists. I like that the length is at my hips. I do have a 34D chest. If you have a big chest, the length might be shorter on you.
I ordered an XS which is my usual size at Anthro. I have been searching for a sweater to go with my wedding dress for when the night gets cooler. This is a great option since I can wear it for normal days as well.

Feminine and Cute
Quality is getting very difficult to find these days. This sweater, like others I purchased recently, is very thin material. The sleeves are not 3/4 length but they are not full length either. They hit me about 2 inches above the wrist, which I find weird! I always buy the regular rather than petite because I prefer the length so I was surprised at where the sleeves hit me. The color is called Sand but very much like the picture is somewhat pink. The soft and feminine styling is attractive on. It arrived with several dirty spots. I wish they would take better care in how they package items for shipping. I am having to wash it and hope the dirt comes out or else I will have to return this one.
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.
This sweater totally surprised me! It's extremely soft and warm. Looks great with a tank top underneath or a dress shirt. The specs of white and black add some dimension and the color is a nice coral hue. This photo doesn't really show how cute it is. A must for sure! The scoop neck lays really nicely as well. Great quality and looking forward to wearing the heck out of it! BTW, I'm a 32D. 5' 6", 125lbs and ordered a small. Could definitely have worn an XS if i wanted it to be a little more snug under the arms.
