I just today received this stunning sweater and am so pleased with its design, fit and quality! It hangs exactly as pictured on the model and it is soft and warm. I ordered this in the neutral, size Large. I was a wee bit concerned that the Large might be too big as I tend to run in between a medium and large in Anthropologie offerings. Given my preference for layering however, this sweater affords a roomy enough fit without appearing over sized or too large! I was also extremely happy to find that the sweater looks fabulous whether hanging open OR buttoned up at the collar. Both looks are lovely and I adore the Sherpa collar. This sweater is MADE to look good with hats and I intend to get a lot of mileage out of wearing it with my wide array of hats and scarves!

Beautiful warm and soft cardigan
I saw this in the store and had to try it on. I am a sucker for that very soft sherpa material around the neck and this sweater did not let me down. It's pretty, warm and versatile and very soft. I typically wear a medium and sometimes a large in Anthro sweaters and am on the fence with this one in terms of size. I purchased a large and it fits well but does have a lot of fabric in the front. The good thing is that unlike a lot of clothes, this sweater doesn't flare out and make me look pregnant but I may try a medium just to compare. This sweater looks great open and also snapped at the top. Great go-to piece.

Love love love!
It was love at first sight with this cardigan! I typically wear a size XS-S but bought a M in this to be extra cozy. I'm also pregnant and after a long search for a maternity coat, I gave up and am HAPPILY loving this cardigan instead. Since it doesn't button all the way down, it will grow with me. Perfect for Dallas, TX winters. Can't wait to wear it not pregnant too!
I ordered this sweater in size M. I am 5'4'', 131 lbs.. The sweater is on its way back to Anthro for a size S. I wanted to wear to right away, not send it back. It is soooo cute, soft, feminine, different. I can't wait for the small to arrive.

Love this sweater
My boyfriend showed me this sweater and I was a bit reluctant to try it on. I thought the color would wash me off too much or that I would look like I'm in kindergarten. I'm so glad I did. I do LOVE this sweater. it is SUPER soft. The color is amazing! It feels and looks like fall :-). Like the other reviewer said, I didn't want to take it off. I could have gone to bed wearing it. I got an xs and it fits just fine .. not loose and it's not tight either. Thanks Antrho!!

Soft, warm, beautiful
This sweater is terrific. I've received compliments every time I've worn it. I followed another reviewer's advice and sized up to a small. It's big, but this style looks great slouchy. I've worn it with over-the-knee boots, skinny jeans ans a scarf. It is soft, warm and lovely! Buy it now before it sells out. You won't regret it!
I happened to notice this top during the sweater sale and picked it up in two colors, the dark orange and the green. I'm petite and usually wear size 4 or S, but got this in XSP. It's quite oversized; I could have easily worn XXSP. I was skeptical about the length - I'm not fond of tunics, but it's shorter than it appears on the photos, hitting at low hip. The sleeves are also shorter, hitting just below the elbow. Had I not sized down, it probably would have fit more like the model. The 'dark orange' is not as red as it appears in the photo, but it's not orange either - more of a brick red or reddish brown. Still, I like the color. The fabric is lightweight bur warm. It drapes well and can be easily layered or belted. It's a great sweater to wear when you want to be comfortable but still look stylish. I really like it and would buy more colors if they were available in my size. I did find the fabric a bit itchy, probably due to the wool, and I wish it had full-length sleeves. Other than that, it's great.

LOVEEE this sweater!
This is such a classic and timeless sweater. PERFECT for the fall and winter months with skinny jeans and a pair of boots. I bought the white/cream sweater today in the store and am about to order the olive green color online.
I would say the main picture for this sweater is NOT how it appears. Make sure to look at the other ones posted to see that it comes down mid thigh.
I normally wear a medium and ordered the same size. To me, I'm not expecting a perfectly fit sweater - I wanted it to fit on the arms but still have that loose, slouchy look and it is everything I wanted.
I am a little nervous about the material, as it appears quite thin. But it is very soft and I cannot WAIT to wear it!

fave new fall sweater!
BEST SWEATER! Super flattering, just enough drape. I bought 2 colors and am thinking of buying a third I love the silhouette so much! Size down, I am still losing weight post baby, am 145 lbs., 5'9" and bought the XS. I normally wear a 4 or 6, S or M tops/sweaters. Only complaint is raising my arms above my head the sweater rides up quite a bit. Could put a cami underneath to fix that. Cream color looks so luxe. Moss color is a super flattering deep, rich army green. Can't recommend enough.
I looked at this sweatercoat several times when I would pass it by, but didn't try it on. Then I noticed it flying off the rack, so decided to give it a try. It is SO much better on the body. I love the weight of this sweatercoat because it's not so heavy like previous sweatecoats I own that can only break out in subzero temperatures. Fairly lightweight but because it's a nice, tight knit looks like it would be fairly warm. I can see this one being a several season coat. I am usually a size small, that is what I took in this sweater. It has no snaps or buttons so you can either let it hang open, or use the belt. Functional pockets are a plus! The colors are gorgeous, and can see so many blouse/tee shirt color options to wear underneath this sweater (charcoal gray, white, cream, burgandy, navy, etc). Rarely purchase things full price, but decided this was one of those pieces that will be well worth it.

I never review but I had to support this gorgeous sweater COAT. Emphasis on coat. It's not itchy. From reading other reviews, I was expecting my skin to break out and a 'not wanting to keep this on for more than a minute type' of sweater. However, dare I say this is soft, cozy and comfy? Yes. I do. It's a lot of fur to say it's a sweater- so I feel more comfortable saying it's a coat. Fur is soft and tickles my face a bit. I usually wear a large. I bought and XL. And I can wear this easily as a coat.. I would get a large if I was only planning on wearing one layer underneath. I am 5 4 and this comes to my knees. Any longer and I would have to rethink getting a large. I wish it was a bit shorter actually and it would be perfect. The quality is good and pockets are functional. There are no buttons or snaps to keep this closed. Colors are true from online pics.

Beautiful sweater coat
Agree w/ the previous review - if you want to wear as a sweater then go with your usual size. If you are going wear as a sweater coat & layer then size up. I ordered my usual size Small & the fit is perfect, including the sleeve length -a small miracle! Also, sleeve width is generous, not too tight or too wide. I am 5'3" & the coat length falls just below my knees as expected. Fabric is not too thin, but not thick or bulky. However, it is a little itchy so I will have to wear long sleeves. Not too surprising as it is wool. Wish it had a front hook & eye or some sort of closure device, but it does not. It is quality, very pretty & on the pricey side. Suspect the generous faux fur & quality of this product has a little something to do with that. It will wear well with many things I already have in my wardrobe such as skinny jeans/cords & boots.
I have sensitive skin, so I have a hard time finding sweaters that aren't cotton or silk that I can wear. When I saw this in the store, I immediately thought it was so pretty and feminine but told myself not to get my hopes up, that it was probably scratchy. After avoiding it for fear of being disappointed, I finally went up to touch it and was pleasantly surprised and relieved to discover it is SO SOFT. Oh, and the details are also absolutely lovely - the patterned banding at the collar, cuffs. and hem; the A-line silhouette; and the zipper in the back. The colors in the banding also make it great for wearing it with different colored pants, skirts, tights, and last but not least, shoes.

Beautiful and basic
I LOVE this sweater! It is absolute beautiful, and it is wearable for everyday. The stranded color work is elegant yet simple. I will say that I wish this sweater cut in at the waist since I am an hourglass shape, but it still looks really pretty on despite that detail. If you want fitted, this is a bit more relaxed. I purchased the xs, as usual in this brand, and it fits perfectly. Be advised that I prefer a slimmer fit in clothing. I think you will love this sweater!

Fantastic swingy sweather!
This sweater is beautiful in person - and even better to wear. Its light enough to wear all day, but substantial enough for the cold winter months. There is a slight swing to the sweater but I find it very proportional. I'm 5'3" 115lbs and often the swingy or boxy cuts do not work for me, but this one is great!
I tried it on at the recommendation of a sales associate and couldn't be happier with the purchase. The sweater is made of high quality fabric - very soft and the perfect structure. I honestly couldn't be happier with this one!
I saw this in a store mannequin paired with a creamy scarf, boot cut black jeans and open toed shoes. Though I have a few creamy cardigan types in my closet, I tried this one because it was different for a few reasons.
I love the cut of the front. It's flattering in it's angle and makes the piece less like a blanket. I love cozying up in the blanket look- but not all the time.
The color is very warm. It's a peachy, creamy cozy color and can be flattering to man skin tones.
The fit is LARGE. I usually go small, and went extra small for this. It was still roomy in the arms, and I had to just cuff them.
That said, it's a roomy cardigan and meant to be worn that way. I would size down because that just provides a cleaner line and better proporotion.
I love this piece. I even love its name. I have worn it picking pumpkins with my kids, and hiking last weekend as the fall leaves change. It's a lovely, warm (but not too warm) and comfortable piece.

I was searching for a sweater in the store to pair with the Icepleat Dress and this was a great find. It is cream and a warm tan color. Very dramatic shape, but the neutral palette grounds it. This will be so versatile for winter, very excited to put together with outfits. Runs a teeny bit large - I could have gone to a medium from my usual Large, but I preferred a bit more of the dramatic sweep of the large. My first sweater buy from Anthro in a long time - well done Anthropologie!

Classic and PERFECT!
Its just so simple, and goes with so much, and its just perfect! I love it, Its comfortable enough to fly in! I can't come up with a negative. True to size, long and cozy, I bought the cream/peach and its a great color. Highly recommend this if you are thinking about it.
Chances are, this winter, you'll pass by everyone wearing a sweater and not even do a double take, unless you're the one wearing this sweater- esp. the silver one, esp. during the holidays! The material is beautiful, with enough metallic sheen to catch people's eyes. The material is sturdy without being bulky. The sweater also hangs beautifully, creating a unique shape when worn, with the sides hanging lower than the middle in the front, thus giving you the opportunity to layer and having, say a sheer flowy tank top underneath it to create a more unique look- or better yet- lace. I couldn't find anything wrong with this sweater...I'm also 5'2 and it hangs beautifully, hitting right at my hips. This is definitely the sweater to buy for christmas season, with all the parties. Pair it with printed pants, or anything red- for Christmas- maybe that red tulle ballerina skirt.

cute cute cute
Love this sweater! The shimmer is just enough to add some pizazz without being overly shine-tastic. Its more of a peach color in real life than a real gold. I am 5' tall and the short front part of the hem hits me perfectly, not too short and not too long. The hem is fun and different and makes the sweater swingy and loose but not baggy. Its a nice mid weight sweater, not see through, but a slightly looser stitch. I am so happy with this purchase and would buy the other color if it goes on sale!

Classic but beyond basic
I'm very happy with this sweater! It's a perfect, medium weight material that hangs nicely. The neckline and solid, pastel color gives this a classic feel, but thanks to the shimmer in the fabric and the cut at the bottom, it has a beyond-basic flair. I normally wear a medium or sometimes a large in anthro tops, and the medium suited me well. It is the perfect length, I think - shorter would have been awful, so I do not think the petite sizes will suit many people (I'm 5' 5", so not tall). I think this will look great with black slacks or blue jeans. My only brief concern was that the shoulders seemed a little pointy at first, but that went away once I wore it a few minutes.
