┬áby JulesMilo boxy on a thin frame
I was hoping this blazer would work for me but I did not end up keeping it.
At 5'5", 100lbs and 25 in jeans, I purchased the 00P, 0P and 0 to see which would fit best. It turns out all three were boxy on my thin frame and the petite sizes were too short in the sleeves. Anthro, I love you dearly for offering Petite sizing but I wish you would also provide 00 and XXS sizing like J.Crew does. I am too tall for Petite sizes unless the piece is oversized or supposed to be long.
From the photos I uploaded, the gray is the size 0 and the turquoise is the 00P. Note the sleeve difference.
This blazer would be best suited for curvy and full figured gals. Pass for me unfortunately. :)

┬áby asta17 This blazer is just okay. The fit is much more cropped and boxy than the model shot conveys. I'm only 5'1 (32A, 105 lbs), and it was too short for my liking. The sleeves were too wide, and overall the torso portion has no shape to it whatsoever. The pleat on the lapel is cute, and the colors are both nice. The fabric felt just so-so to me, but the buttons on the sleeve looked and felt cheap. Overall a definite pass for me.

I noticed a lot of the other reviews commented on the boxy shape and wide sleeves. This was actually a huge selling point for me. All too often, to get the fit I need in the bust and waist, I find the sleeves too tight to wear. This was not an issue in this blazer. The sleeves are not made too tight for the jacket, but I don't swim in them either.
As far as the boxiness reviews, I don't see this as a huge problem with the size I ordered. My natural waist size is proportionally small to my hips and bust, and the blazer showed that off just fine.
The material is super soft, and the detailing inside and out are very pretty. I can't wait to where this to work and around town!
The one area that is a bit off, and is visible in the product photos, is the sleeves are a bit short.
