I saw this at the store and just had to try it on. It looks even better on than it does in the online picture. The crocheted detail is absolutely beautiful. I tried it on with a dark gray silky t-shirt and gray skinny jeans with ankle boots. The look was perfect and polished. This is a great piece to add to your spring/summer wardrobe. I bought an XS/S and fit was flattering not boxy.

perfect sunny weather top
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.
This top is a soft knit. But, it's two layers. The inside layer is a thin cotton that holds the floral lace bottom trim. So, the bottom trim IS NOT sewn on to the navy (knit# part of the top. It's separate. This makes it a warmer top having two layers. But, it makes the lace less prone to ripping at the bottom when the knit stretches. It's also do-able for braless because of the lining.
The sizing it TTS. I bought the XL and it fit me nice and tailored, but not snug. XL is my normal size on Anthro unless something runs large #then I buy L.)
The bottom lace is not really thin or delicate. But, it is in need of moderate care to prevent tearing since it is low and you do sit on it, etc.
Why they are saying this is "fringe" is beyond me. It's just a bottom lace TRIM as one solid piece also.

I keep saying I'm not going to buy anything else from anthro...then I saw this top! I just got it in the mail today. It's really colorful at the bottom but the solid top balances it out. I'm a sucker for a layered shirt and anthro has so many great ones this season. This top was a little bit baggier than I wanted it to be, but if I sized down it would be too tight under my arms. It's still flattering being baggy though. Definitely get this top!

best top ever!
This is so gorgeous in person. the lace at the bottom is intense with the colors being more dark. The top is flattering for all shapes out there so no worries about the upper body! Order a size down and if you are not too tall order a petite version. I am 5'5" I ordered a petite version which hits just right. the models are fairly tall. the body part is lined too. no see through. weel made!
I agree with the other reviewer that this sweater is worth investing in EVERY COLOR! I purchased the small in mint and definitely want to get the black and coral colors as well. The top portion of the sweater is flowy and the lower band is fitted at the hip area. Depending on how you style it, the sweater will billow out a tad but still looks like it fits well and flatters. You can wear it with a pair of jeans or tuck it in like in the photo, as it is a super versatile piece. Do yourself a favor and get this sweater in every color!

Great wardrobe staple.
I recently purchased this Moth knit shirt in black and am going back to purchase it in the mint and coral as well. It's lightweight and has a beautiful, comfortable fit.
When I first saw this cardigan at the Carmel, CA Anthro it definitely caught my eye. As the other reviewer mentioned, the lace was a bit stiff at first, but after wearing in once it definitely softened up beautifully! Its great for turning a simple jeans and a tee into a laid back boho feel! Love this piece and I constantly get compliments on it!
I love the look of this top. It is a quality, substantial jersey knit and the style is sharp and slightly retro. I was really hoping it would work. However, the fit for me was not good. I ordered my regular XS/0, 5'7", 115lbs, 32,25,34 and felt that there was just too much fabric around the bust and torso. I think it would have looked better if it had been designed as a more fitted style.. The length on me was same as on the model - not too cropped and not too long. I would still recommend trying this top - it might work better on someone with a fuller bust.

Flattering top. Substantial knit. It is not see through and the traps are strategically placed so that brastraps don't show. True to size I think. I am usually a size 0 and the xs fits like on the model. That being said , the straps have a slight buckle in the inner shoulder area. Not troublesome enough to cause me to return. It's quite cute. It looks great with the black bermuda shorts!
I probably looked at this during 5 or 6 visits to my local store, but it didn't look like much on the hanger, so I never tried it on.. When I finally did try it on, I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a somewhat unusual dolman-style peasant sleeve with a drawstring on the bottom side of the sleeve that is more sophisticated than the typical bows on peasant tops you sometimes see. Also, the beaded v-neckline is more sophisticsted than most peasant tops that tie...really elegant and unique! Beading is very well-done and the lace is 81% cotton and is gorgeous (not a big fan of synthetic lace). I have no idea why it looks so bland and boring in the photos, but just take a chance and try it on. I'm a modest woman and felt the cami that comes with it does its job as a liner.
the online pictures make this sweater look terrible. In person, it is gorgeous. Very delicate and feminine. Lots of beautiful details. Looks like it could be worth a lot more especially when you wear it. I'm am very happy with this purchase.
