    Charming, comfortable and a great layering piece
    Ok, so I was *supposed* to be shopping for others for the holidays, but came across this piece at my local anthro and just fell in love. Not sure if it is showing online, but the cream/ black colorway of this tee shirt is broken up by the most lovely pale blue that is used to highlight the various birds that are scattered across the shirt --- blue birds, blue jays. It's just lovely. It is not low cut, it skims rather than clings to the body, is super soft., and I can put this with jeans and a cardi, or even with my more formal skirts and pants for work under a blazer and it will provide a whimsical touch to my otherwise corporate outfit. :-# I also saw the green #bunny# and mustard #dogs# pattern at my local antrho and think that I may have to get both when I return. All colors would work right through summer, and it's weight makes it seasonless. For reference, I am a straight Medium at Anthro #or size 8) and the Mediium fit perfectly.

    Cute and comfy
    Purchased the ivory color with woodland creature print; very glad I did. It will be a wardrobe staple going into spring. I'm 5'6", 130lbs, 36A. The shirt fits well, not too tight or too baggy.

    Love this top!
    I bought the gold top with the dog print. It's so comfortable and looks cute with or without a sweater or jacket and every type of pants I've worn it with! I normally wear a small at Anthropologie so I ordered a small in this top. I thought it was a little big, but it still looks cute and I kept it. Now that they are on sale, I'm planning to order the other colors and will likely get them in an extra small.

    Rich Winter Warmth
    I adore Anthro's selection of sweater dresses this season. Here is yet another winner. My usual XXSP runs TTS and fits my 5'0" frame exactly as pictured. The turquoise color is a lovely, rich, quintessentially Fall "mallard" blue-green. The dress gently conforms to the body while leaving room for layers and secures with a quality zipper and hook-and-eye closure in back. The raised seaming down the center and around the patch pockets lends character to an otherwise simple silhouette. The boiled wool is substantial yet light, though unfortunately unlined and more itchy than I'd prefer... I do fear this dress might stretch out, as boiled wool can do when it isn't anchored by a layer of lining. Even so, I believe this dress is worth the price. It's versatile and classic. Mine will remain a cool-weather staple for years to come, and the outfit possibilities will make it new again each time I wear it.

    Fabulous-can work easily from day to night!
    Really nice shape, slightly fitted shift skims in all the right places. Great fabric- good quality boiled wool. Need a cardi or light jacket or an underneath layer for winter of course. I love, love love the turquoise color, may come back for another in red.

    The Color!
    I purchased the red online and I'm so happy I did, absolutely love the color. The material doesn't feel like boiled wool at all, because it is so lightweight and stretchy like a sweater. The cut is very forgiving and falls above the knee and not too short which is nice. Very cute with tights and a long sleeve top underneath. I may go back for the blue one! Note the hem is cut higher in front and lower in the back which isn't obvious in the model photo but much more visible in person. Love love that this dress has pockets! (for reference I am 5'6", 135) the size S fits perfect! This will be a favorite for years to come. Great find!

    Stylish, easy sweater dress
    I'm in Boston and a sweater dress is my go-to casual dress look for winter. I'm also a sucker for stripes, and neutral colors. So this baby caught my eye right away. Despite the horizontal stripes, I think this design works for a range of body types due to a few design tricks. The shoulders are cut broader with button detailing on top, which makes the waist appear more narrow. Also, you will notice that the blue stripe at the waist is thicker than the other stripes, which also narrows the waist. The dress comes in at the waist to accent it without being tight or too form fitted. Fit is generally TTS, per Anthro's usual sizing guide. If you have larger hips, you may consider sizing up. I haven't had the pulling issue that others mentioned. I tend to agree that the fabric could be a tad itchy but not so much to deter me from wearing it. Colors seem slightly more muted/neutral in person. I personally love this dress and recommend it!

    Amazing dress! I have been looking for a unique can-be-dressed-up-or-down sweater dress that includes all of these colors. most of my sweater dresses are best with black boots, but this would be great with brown boots or even beige, tan, nude or navy flats or heels. Easy to accessorize with a number of scarves or necklaces (so many options!). I purchased in store on clearance with the extra 25% off--great deal and wonderful quality for the price. I did just read the reviews about terrible pilling. Great feedback. I will purchase a lint roller. Hopefully that will not annoy me too greatly, as I see myself wearing this a ton in fall and winter. I am 5'6" , 120#, 33-34 A/B bust, 26 waist, petite slim and slender athletic build with long torso and arms. I debated in the dressing room between the XS (more fitted and showed off the little curves I do have) and S (slightly looser, more comfortable overall, but made me look like I had NO curves). I ended up going with the XS on recommendation from several of the sales clerks saying it just looked better on me.

    My first purchase!
    I ordered a large because I am 49 and didn't want to look like I was squeezing into this dress. It is really cute and I did do the boot socks thing and got lots of compliments. If you like sheaths, then this might be a good look for you too. It is warm, stylish and a little fun!

    Just fell in love
    Oh my gosh I wish I had plans this weekend so I could wear these pants, they just came today and I am in love with them! the fit s flattering the fabric is fabulous the trim is to die for- but no animal did! I purchased the turquoise, but I wish I had purchased a pair in every color! Seriously considering buying the size that is left and having it tailored to fit. That's how much I love these pants! The only drawback is they are a bit short to be ankle-length and a bit long to be considered a crop . . I tried them with a pair of boots to cover the liength nd they look great, and I can fold them up onefold to make them a crop. I bought size 8 regular fit which is my size normally.

    Very Flattering
    I just bought these pants in black at the store and I love them! It's a versatile product that you can build great outfits with (so you don't have to break the bank by buying more pieces that compliment it). I'm wearing it now with boots and a long t-shirt. I want to also try it with a blouse and high heels. It's also very flattering on a pear-shape. I'm 5'10" and 160 lbs with all of my weight below my waist. I never thought I would find a skinny fit that didn't make me look too bottom-heavy. The cut is very well-made and the fact that it doesn't have a lot of stretch gives you a slimmed-down look. Buyer beware: It does run small. Size 10 tends to be big on me, but I'm wearing a 12 right now and it fits like a glove.

    I don't normally write reviews but I wanted to throw my two sense in since I disagree with most of the other reviews about the sizing on these. After reading the many review I sized up from my normal 2tall to a 4tall. I wish I had stuck with the 2 because these are slightly larger than I would like. For reference I am 5'8", 26inch waist and 35inch hips. These feel pretty stretchy as well so I think if you do find them snug initially that they will grow a little bit. I am hoping I can shrink these a little in the wash. I already paid the shipping and duty charges since I live in canada so I am determined to keep these. They are gorgeous! I got the teal colour.

    Personal Stylist Review
    Just Right- That perfect not-too-tight fitted appeal makes this turtleneck a favorite of mine this season. It runs TTS for a more relaxed fit while sizing down provides a true body conscious fit perfect for tucking into full skirts or layering under just about anything! The length through the body is just right (not too long) hitting below the natural waist, and the neckline is especially effortless (not feeling too high or tight as some turtlenecks can). I bought a black one (wardrobe staple) and the stripped version to play with fun layering combinations! -Christina Need more help?

    Classy and Versatile
    This striped turtleneck looks good on it's own and as a layering piece. It fits true to size - and it is not meant to be slouchy or baggy. I love to wear this under black jumper dresses with leggings - it always looks classy and professional. It also pairs well with denim, and I love to wear my black puffer vest over it. I have been a stripe lover for decades - stripes are always in style, and this turtleneck is a great addition to my striped top wardrobe!

    Great for layering, esp. w/sweaters w/wool content
    i purchased the black and white and the light color (grey?) to wear underneath some sweaters that have small wool content that I couldn't resist despite my sensitive skin that Anthro carried this winter. The fabric is thin but not overly so and I think they will be perfect for layering. They have a good amount of stretch so even though I sized up from M to L it still hugs my body. I don't think a cami is needed if worn alone but at my age I no longer wear tops that cling to the body unless I am layering. I also don't normally like turtlenecks, choosing mock turtlenecks instead however I like the look of this neck and it doesn't have a tight feel around my neck, just like it appears in the photos online. Wish they had offered one in a color that pops a little more. The customer service person ordered the B & W in L petite by mistake (both were ordered over phone in same order as a L) but as soon as I noticed I called and they are sending the L waiving postage (fortunately the petites went out of stock so don't have to deal with returning it). I am very happy with the purchase and they seem to be of good quality otherwise I would order duplicates as I don't see this specific neck design often and the fabric is so nice. Almost wish I had purchased the black too even though I have a couple of black mock turtlenecks. With the stretch, there is some leeway in the size you choose...I am 38B 5 ft 8 in and the M or L would work fine. However I do have somewhat long arms and there is no extra length like shown on one of the models so of you have really long arms they may be on the short side.

    Pretty winter wardrobe update
    I was skeptical when I first opened this dress -- I don't normally buy dresses without defined waistlines because I'm curvy. This dress actually fit perfectly, though (I'm a pretty exact 8P, so I ordered a medium petite). The stripey front panel has a good drape to it, so it hangs nicely and doesn't over-accentuate my curvy bits. Also, although it doesn't have a waistline per se, it is gathered in the back so the dress nips in on the sides and doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a maternity frock or a shapeless bag. The fabric is pretty light, so for deep winter, it might be best to wear leggings (and I don't think the dress is too short on me). I was also a little surprised that the stripey wool-blend is a bit itchy. I hope that straightens out after a washing or two. Overall, I'm excited to wear the dress, because I think it's going to become a winter work staple for me. Just the kick in the pants that my winter wardrobe needed.

    Great and Comfortable
    I love this dress. It is comfortable, yet feminine. I love the back material and how it swings. It is very forgiving and flattering.

    Cute and versatile. Sleeves may be narrow
    i ordered my usual Medium and it fit perfectly. Fabric has some give and dress is lined except sleeves...I am normally very sensitive to anything the least bit itchy and the sleeves did not bother me at all (the patterned fabric is the one that might be itchy). The fabric is not what I consider high quality but not poor either. The dress is cute on and I think will look nice with opaque tights and short black booties. Appropriate for ages from 18 to 50+ IMO...not too short and I am 5 ft 8 inches. It hit me about an inch and a half above the knees. Agree with other reviewers that the faux leather is a nice touch.. I live in tunics and will wear this similarly but with tights instead of leggings. I do not have large arms and these are snug but not uncomfortably so however if you have a more athletic build they may be too tight for comfort.

    Runs two sizes small and petite is too short
    This is an awesome skirt, though as others have noted it looks much better with a tucked in top (white, black, chambray, or burgundy) rather than a long sweater as in the model photo. In my opinion the skirt is at least two sizes too small. I am very tiny, sometimes 00P is too large for me, and always need petite sizes, yet I had to size up to a regular 0 in this skirt 1) in order to be able to breathe in the elastic waist and 2) to feel like the skirt approached a comfortable "mini skirt" length. The range of colors in the pattern make the skirt incredibly versatile, and I am glad I found one that fit.

    I am really loving this skirt! It is a great, vibrant pattern that stands out but does not overwhelm or look cheap. I ordered both a 6 and 8 based on previous reviewers saying it runs small. I am usually a 4 or 6 in skirts and dresses and the 6 fits but I can't decide if the 8 looks better on. It is a little longer but both kind of fluff out in the back above my rear, common for me with skirts like this, so I am thinking of sticking with my usual 6 since I hate sizing up if I don't have to and I like the look of the trimmer waist in the 6.

    Perfect holiday skirt
    While this is titled a mini skirt, it is just about the perfect length. I am 5'10" and the 14 comes to just above my knees. I sized up, as I often do with skirts, both for length and a bit more comfort. The waistband, while it lays flat in the front, is elastic in the back, which allows for easy fitting. Also, unlike many pencil skirts, this particular skirt has pleats on the front creating a slight bubble effect. Initially, I thought this may be unflattering, however, the positioning of the pleats, right below the waistband, creates a flattering hourglass shape. I would shy away from hiding the waistband with a bulky sweater and pair it with a tucked blouse. The pattern has a pretty shine, which will be perfect for dressing up for the holidays.
