Nothing "dusty" about this sweater, it's so versatile especially for major dress wearers like yours truly. I saw this on a sales associate at the Georgetown-DC store and thought it looked beautiful on her. She wore it over her dress, brilliant! I'm 34B and Petite S fits well. (Petite XXS fit is a tad tight in the arms (I have big arms), the S fits ok but the sleeves were too long. I think if you are petite, you should try on the petite size for the perfect length. Otherwise, the regular size maybe too long on short ladies like me. I usually wear regular sweaters over my dresses, so this is a nice fashion change. The material is very light but not too sheer, and perfect for spring and summer, and even for winter for the office. The price is right too! Special thanks to the staff at Georgetown-DC store for being so courteous, knowledgeable, and fun!

This cardigan is gorgeous. I purchased the coral in medium and the color is the same as in photos, even prettier on. I was cautious at first that it would be enveloping and robe-like, but it is open and very comfortable. My first trip out and I received a compliment on my outfit and the color of the garment. The fabric is of good quality and it hangs nicely. It flows well when you walk and also looks great with a scarf to add more layers. Such a lovely addition to any outfit. Especially nice if there is a little breeze to keep you warm.

Extremely versatile, casual but elegant
I love this duster. It is one of my spring staples. It looks great with so many things. You do have to be careful not to catch it on things, because the delicate fabric will pull, but it's so beautiful, I just take extra care with it. So glad I purchased this.
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.
I ordered this on a whim and I love it! It hasn't been warm enough to wear it with a tank like it is shown; so I paired with with a long sleeve black shirt and it is just as cute. I received many compliments. The quality is good. I ordered a small and I usually wear a S or M at anthro. Definitely would recommend it!

I tried this duster vest on in the store and really liked it. The only issue that kept me from purchasing it was that the front edge rolled back on the vertical striped side so that the hem showed. I thought maybe it was just the vest I tried on but when I looked at them all, they were all rolled back on the vertical striped side. With the fabric and the stripes, it's not super noticeable but enough that I'm not willing to pay full price for it. Otherwise, I love the design, the fit and the fabric (lightweight stretchy knit).

Just received this darling vest in the mail and it is the perfect top layer to give any outfit some flair! I usually wear an XS and bought the XXS since this was an option, perfect fit! would look cute over a black sundress, as pictured or even over a swimsuit!
This top was pricey so I hesitated to buy it, but them there was the Mother's Day sale so here it is in my closet. Love this top, the lace on the back really makes it so unique. It fits true to size. I had no issue with the arm holes. I am a size 8 and ordered the medium - maybe the small would have been better thru the body on me but the medium looks great. Since it was an online exclusive I had to make a guess for the size. I really prefer going to the store and trying things on.

Will wait for sale
I'm 5'1 110lbs with a 34c bust size. I took my usual xsp and the fit was good, just a little tight and boxy around the shoulder and arm area (but acceptable). I was taken aback by how breezy this piece is considering it's a sweater, but the eyelet in the back allows a lot of air to pass through making it wearable in the early summer months. I really like the peekaboo effect on the back and how it shows off your silhouette yet covers you. I got the light mauve and it is as pictured. Unfortunately, I'm not rolling in dough, and I think this item would be more welcomed in my closet on sale.
I'm surprised this top hasn't had a review yet so I hope this will help someone!

i love this too. It is so unique. Feels very breezy because of the lace on the back. Sometimes a lil too breezy like I'm wearing nothing on top! It's a good top for the cooler summer days.
I tried this on in a regular XS. For reference, I am 5'1'', 120 lbs, and usually a 4P-6P or SP. I normally buy my sweaters from anthro in a regular size XS. This sweater fits TTS and was very flattering. It is still rather thick, despite it being more spring-like in color. It is definitely more similar in weights to some of the sweaters I bought in the fall than other spring options. Appears well-made and does not appear as prone to snags as some anthro sweaters are. I loved the colors- as the lighter brown seems to have a bit of gold in it. It hits me at my mid-thigh and covers my bottom, which I liked, as I prefer longer sweaters. I suppose that it's supposed to have a more casual feel, as there is a hood, which is not my favorite. Overall, I really liked this sweater, as it seems well-priced, good quality, and not prone to snagging.

Classic Hooded Open Cardigan
I'm 5'2, 115 lbs (petite body)and this particular stripped open cardigan fits me in XS Regular.
The material is lightweight which will be perfect for Spring/Summer. Love the neutral color which will allow me to match a lot of things in my wardrobe.
The length is perfect! I don't usually like shorter lengths for open cardigans but this is long enough where it shows some sort of coverage.

Nice piece for Spring/Summer. Fits TTS. For refernce I am 5 ft 2 in and 105 pounds and I went with the XS. I didnt go with petite because the regular fit fine. Neutral pallette with a hint of sparkle. I highly recommend.
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!
