I found this in the store in the turquoise, which is a beautiful color. I loved it so much that I ordered it in the red. They both are very comfortable and can be dressed up with a statement necklace. Great buy!

Had to have it in TWO colors!
I first saw this online and loved the pink color. By the time I finally got to one of my Anthro stores the only size left in pink was a S. Since most Anthro tops run small I usually buy mediums, but I have a few small and extra-smalls in my closet, so I tried the small on. Many reviews I'd read said it ran big and the sleeves were long. They were right. Altho I loved the length in the front, it was really full in back and I had to turn up the sleeves several times. But I wanted it so much I bought the small and ordered the XS before I left. When the XS arrived I could see it was a better fit, altho I had to get used to it being shorter in front, the way it fits the model in the photo. The sleeves fit right at my wrist and the back no longer looked like a billowing sail. Of course, when I went back to my store to return the Small, I came home with the blue one (also an XS)!! The blue is a lovely shade of sky. A cami might be worn right now for warmth, but isn't needed, as these are not see-through. Should be pretty in spring with white skinny pants. I plan on wearing them casually with skinny jeans, then dressing them up for an evening out.

Perfect cut and length
I love that for a change a t shirt has the non clingy fabric in the back. The hem and length are ver figure flattering. I feel the long sleeves add to the elegance of the tee rendering it to be a great dress up tee
I tried this on and bought it in-store in both colors because each is different enough and both are fantastic! First of all, both colors are represented well online. The moss design (which I thought was charcoal in the store but it really is a dark mossy color) has a lot of blue in it (navy and cornflower), plus some gray, ivory and a tiny bit of bright yellow in the trim around the neckline. The ivory has medium blue stripes, a darker ivory lace border at the bottom, and slate blue/ivory trim with a little bit of leaf green and bright pink/orange. The body is knit fabric and the panel at the top is woven. As far as fit, I'd say it runs true to size -- I took the smaller of the two sizes I usually wear. The fit on me is fitted in the arms and bust with a slight a-line shape at the bottom. I tried the larger size and it was too big in the woven area at the top. The bottom of the shirt has a slit on each side. It's relaxed and unusual, and I love it!

I had been eyeing this top for weeks and finally just bit the bullet and bought it- I couldn't resist any longer! It is absolutely adorable. It's "basic" enough to be an everyday tee, but the details make it noticeable. I like how the lace is really sturdy- it won't fall apart in the wash like some lace detailing tends to do. The whole shirt is great quality. The model has the sleeves pushed up in this picture, but they are actually long sleeves. But rolling them up a little and pushing them up makes this shirt the perfect "transition" piece from summer to fall. Love it! Very worth the money.

Classy casual wear
I am super delighted that I took a chance on this top! I am 5'7", 180 lbs. and wear a size 40C bra. I usually wear size L or XL for tops. I'm always a little hesitant to buy online, because not all size XL tops are really extra large - depending on the manufacturer, they sometimes only fit a person who wears size 8 or 10!
I bought this top in size XL, and it fits me exactly how it fits the model in the picture. Exactly. It's comfortably loose, doesn't bind anywhere, and falls very nicely. So if you have a little 'softness' anywhere on your body, it gently drapes over it. :) I have indicated that the top fits true to size. I think I could have gotten away with a size L, but I don't think I would have had the same nice looking flow and outline as I do with the size XL.
The sleeve length is also perfect. The sleeves are long enough to wear as a long sleeved top - they almost come to my wrists. But I find that making a little double cuff brings it up to a 3/4 sleeve which is perfect for spring/summer and adds a little bit to the complete look .
The quality of the top is excellent. The embroidery on it is very neatly done, and the main material of the top is not super light like many tops are, so there's no need to wear a camisole under this top. It can be worn for kicking around the house, or with a couple of cute accessories, can easily be considered dressy casual.
I don't think I can say enough good things about this top. Taking into account the look, quality, and flexibility for wear, it's a steal at this price.
This simple tee shirt is so flattering, even with just yoga pants, cute sneakers and a jean jacket. It seems to be cut on the bias, so it's shapely, but the slightly A-line cut means my slightly pouchy stomach doesnt show. (I'm 5'4", 126-132ish, and the small is perfect.) I wound up getting white, blue, black and peach. The taupe turned out to be too muddy, though with the gold necklace like the model is wearing, it wd be better.

I love this tee; I bought it in white, black & taupe. I bought it in XL which is my normal Anthro size & they fit well. The tee is very well made & super flattering. I'm very short waisted, so it's a bit long in the back but that's fine with me. I normally wear a cardigan over it so the tee does hang out past that. Overall a great staple item to have.

Didn't realize the front was asymmetrical
When I saw this shirt, it immediately reminded me of other Left of Center tees - especially my favorite one from about 3 years ago -- so I bought it in both the taupe and mint colors the first day it was online. When I got it, I was surprised to see that the front is asymmetrical. (I can tell that now by looking at the pictures but I just thought it was draped a little off-center on the hanger and it's hidden in the picture of the red colorway.) Anyway, if you are ok with that, then the shirt is great. The material is very light-weight, it fits true to size and the A-line swing is great for those who are pear-shaped. The mint color is very light and pleasing and the taupe surprisingly didn't wash out this fair-skinned blonde. I like the thicker seam on the bottom -- but in a perfect world, it wouldn't be uneven in front. Nonetheless, I like the rest of the cut so much that I am keeping them both.
I can't even explain how much I love this! It's one of those tops that is super comfy yet can be pulled together too. It's the perfect thickness and softness; sort of waffle-like and not too sheer at all. I plan to wear it with leggings (it does cover the butt) I got the lavender stripe color and it's pretty much as shown; a very pale lavender. It is true to size. (I'm not sure how to describe my body type: I am small-chested and thin, yet not petite in terms of leg and arm length.) I got XS. I want another one!

I love this tunic. It is so soft and comfortable. I bought the lilac in stores and will probably order another color. The lilac really looks more grey though but I like it. I bought my normal size - large - and it is a little loose but I wouldn't want a smaller size.

Pretty but inconsistent
I ordered this pretty tee in two sizes. When they arrived, the colors were so different--one pale blue as pictured, one a medium teal--that I checked both the packing slip and the labels to make sure that both were in fact the "mint" blue I was expecting. The fabric was also different; the S was loosely woven and quite sheer, the XS more thick and less see-through. I found myself between sizes; the XS was short on me, while the S was a little big all around. The sleeves were too long on both. The shirt was cozy and pretty, and I may reconsider if it comes down, but it is not a satisfying buy at this price point.
I bought this in a large (I'm 5'6 and 140 lbs) but I probably could have ordered a medium, which I am doing now. I will keep the large though because I love this top and how comfortable and pretty it is on. I like tops loose, but think the large is a little too loose, hoping the medium is loose but a little more fitted to my figure. I am straight, no hips so the large, although cute on, hangs a little too loose. Am I repeating myself? Well made, colors vibrant, although the red at the bottom is more of a clay red than red red.

Cute & Casual
Great weight for spring. It's a great top to pair with jeans or leggings for a casual night out.

Beautiful but a bit boxy shaped
As soon as I saw this online, I had to get my hands on it. I instantly fell in love with the pattern and tunic style/length. My size in Anthro clothes always varies between small and medium, so I crossed my fingers and ordered the small. I'm glad I did, as the small is quite loose at the torso and hips, and I'm pretty "average" size wise--not particularly slim. If anything I think this could have been a bit more tapered, like it looks on the model, as I'm not a fan of boxy fits. I'm guessing the model's top is pinned back or she'd be drowning in it! All in all, I'm definitely glad I got it and will wear it a lot, but the slight square shape keeps it one star shy of "excellent", in my opinion.
I loved this in the blue/sage combo, and snapped it right up. I didn't have any issues with static and clingness, but I may have if I tried it earlier this winter. It works even for large busts. Looks great with dark denim. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Perfect winter to spring shirt
LOVE this shirt. I tried on both a medium and a large (I'm large busted, D cup) Both sizes fit but I ended up going with the large because while I have a big bust I don't like to flaunt it and I enjoyed the roominess that came with the larger size.
Perfect shirt for transition from winter into spring.

Just bought this today! Looks great with leggings or jeans. Can't wait to wear it out!
I liked the fit of this top and the color. I'm a size 10/12 and can many times size down to a medium. However in this top i definitely needed a large--close fitting in the bust. A bit pricey, but has a polished look to it.

even better in person
I wish I hadn't listened to the other reviews. I bought a size sm and should have ordered an extra small. I have a 34 A bust and am small through the torso. I thought because the other reviews said it ran small I should order on the safe side with the small...which I usually purchase in all tops. An extra small would have fit me better but I am still in love with this top.
It is good quality and definitely cream color or ivory.

I tried the in the XS and S..and went with the S. The color is definitely more to the ivory side then white. I found the length on me was close to the model shot..maybe just a bit longer. It's a little more fitted on top which is nice so it doesn't go into a maternity look..which tends to happen on me. The fabric is substantial in the body and I felt that a nude bra would work well..not too see through. Great piece for layering :-) (5'3..124..34C)
