I absolutely love this sweater coat. It fits very well and I found that it fit exactly as I thought it would.
This piece is excellent for a windy day. I put it on over a sweater and jeans/leggings, and I am warm without the stiffness or bulk of a large coat.
I have the moss color and it is beautiful. It looks better in person than online and complements most colors. This coat is one of my wardrobe staples!

I just bought the moss green (nice color) and have worn it once. here are my thoughts re: other reviewer's comments: it is cut somewhat small and def. pulls on the snaps in the chest area. I am 127 lbs. & a 34B,normally a medium, pretty flat chested, but due to this issue I bought a large, which works well. Also, if you are wearing heavier clothing or layering underneath, the arms are somewhat snug and the extra room is helpful.as far as how it lays, it will never look like the 1st photo unless you work hard at posing & arranging just so. i think the model's hands in the pockets are pushing it out to shape it.It does lay more flat, but there is body and shape to it. I think it is well made but do agree the snap closures don't seem to be sewn on very sturdily. All in all, I'm very happy, think it's a flattering cut, and would highly recommend, assuming you get the right size for you! If you love funnel collars as I do, def. consider.

I love this coat
I bought this coat in the ivory color in S and XS, and I kept the XS. I am 5'3", 115lbs, and I would say the coat runs a bit wide through the middle. I could have kept the S, but the extra fabric made it look sloppy, more like a robe or housecoat.
I was unsure at first and almost gave this back, since it seemed a little unflattering and shapeless. I'm so glad I kept it. I love love love this coat. It has proven very practical - you can wear the collar down or snapped up in a funnel neck for colder weather, and I wear it indoors as a layering piece or outdoors when it's chilly, with a scarf or without. Because it is boiled wool, it is very forgiving and seems to stretch to fit my shape.
I almost never buy at full price, and I didn't really need another light jacket, but this sweater coat has been worthwhile. I have worn it every single day since I received 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.

I have the Ivory in Small and I love love love this top. It covers the hips, lays so nicely down your body, and is super soft. It's exactly what I wanted and I love the slits on the sides for some extra leg showing. Its so pretty and I get a ton of compliments.

I love how soft this cowl neck is, and it comes in so many great colors. It's a wonderful layering piece, and with the right accessories, you can dress it up or use it for lounge wear. I feel like I have been living in this so far this winter. Definitely size down, but it has a nice oversized fit and high low style. Be aware of the seam down the front and back, some people don't like those, but I think it's cool!
I am so happy I was able to track this sweater down in the store before it sold out! I absolutely love this sweater! Could be my favorite item I have ever purchased from Antrho. I am normally a Small but got an XS in this sweater as I am going to wear it more as a sweater instead of a jacket (as some said they use it). It is very warm too if I wanted to just wear this alone with no jacket. The pattern and colors are so vibrant and eye catching and the fur collar is fabulous! I have gotten stopped several times by people asking me where I got the sweater!. I have very long arms and the sleeves were a little short (they are cuffed sleeves) so I just cut the thread on the cuffed sleeve and now they are perfect length! I am 5'7 so the length of the sweater is perfect for me. I don't think this would work on shorter people as they would get lost it in with the length and fur collar.

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.
My local store only carried the pink version, so this is what I had tried on in small. It fit but I found it a little snug for me (145 lbs - 5'7" - 34C). The color was the reason I passed up on the sweater. I've now ordered the grey online in the Medium and was surprised at how much larger it is than the Small I had previously tried on. Since everyone is mentioning that it is true to size, it makes me Wonder whether there was a labelling error with mine? It does say Medium on the label, but it's a little more loose on me that I would have liked. Still debating whether to keep or not only because of size because the fabric is super soft and the design is beautiful. I also love the contrasting off-white lace on the soft grey. I also personnaly like the rounded hem because I have round hips and find this style sits better on me. The sides hadn't struck me as being cut too high when I tried both sweaters, but maybe I hadn't noticed because I was wearing a tank underneath.

pretty and feminine
This is such a pretty sweater. I love the shape, the knit detailing on the edges, the lace inset. It can be a challenge to find winter sweaters that are both warm and pretty, and I love that this is feminine without being over-the-top. It's incredibly soft and is the only wool-blend sweater I own that I can wear just with a cami or tank underneath rather than a long-sleeved layering tee. I don't even wear cashmere without a full-length tee underneath. It's described as lightweight and I was worried it was going to be thin and gauzy, but it's actually quite substantial. I wouldn't call it lightweight at all - I'd even say it's on the heavier end of a medium weight. I wear a M in most brands and was going to order this online in the same size. Fortunately, my local store had it in stock and I pulled both a M and L, as the M looked tiny. I didn't even bother trying it on as the L was the perfect fit, and the M was so small I wondered if it was mismarked. I ended up buying this online in L and the sizing wasn't a fluke, so I would recommend sizing up. I assumed this brand runs small, but I ended up trying/buying some other items by them and a M fits me in other styles. I might note that the sleeves on this are a touch short once I start moving around, but that is not unusual for me. For reference, I am 5'10", 155 lbs, broad shoulders, long arms, short torso.

Love this Sweater!
I love this sweater so much. I saw it on one of the associates at the store and asked her about it. I picked up the last one! It was a great purchase. I wore this for our family photos too. The pink isn't as light as it in the photo, it has a darker look but still considered light pink I guess. It really pretty. The lace detail in the front also makes the sweater more beautiful. I do have so say that the sides are really short but I wore a tank underneath and it wasn't a problem, it still looked good. The sleeves weren't too long (one of the problems with sweaters is bunching at the wrist, I hate that!!)
I bought this cardigan in the pearl color and I LOVE it! It is so soft and has the most beautiful detail. I have worn it with jeans and a shirt or with a dress. The only downside is that I only have a few shirts/dresses I think it truly matches with--this is definitely not an every day cardigan, but I take any chance I can to wear it!

It killed me to return this sweater. I ordered the Pearl color and it was so beautiful. Quality was great, design great, but fit is not good. It runs supremely large. The XS was sold out, so I had to order the S which I knew might be a little big in the first place- but this is such a swingy piece that it accentuated its largeness. I would still totally recommend this piece- but order a size or 2 down- I wish they could restock the Petite sizes in this one! If you actually have boobs (unlike me) or are not petite, this cardigan will probably be perfect for you. I would order it again if they restocked the Petite sizes!

snagged this on sale and can't wait to transition it into fall/winter. the pearl color is a neutral cream with a very slight pink hue. i sized down based on other reviews and am glad I did - it worked out beautifully. sleeves are slightly long but that is the case for everything for me unless petite sizing is available. get it!
I tried this on in the white and the orange recently in the store. I went with the orange. The top is a thin sweater material, and will be great for fall. Something that can be dressed up or down. I LOVE THE POCKETS!!
Both the orange and the white were a bit sheer, the white more so. So, you'll need to wear a nude bra or a cami underneath. This is a great top that allows you to pair it with a statement necklace. I adore it!
Runs true to size. If you're boxy up top, I imagine this could emphasize that. I'm curvy on top (36C/D), but go in at the waist and have narrow hips, so this worked well for me. I purchased in a medium.

great basic top
I am a stocky petite with broad shoulders and a 38b chest. I tried on the regular size Large, which fit true to size (I normally wear a size medium in Anthropologie regular sizes). The "peplum skirt" hit right at the hip, so I didn't think I would need to order this in Petite Large #especially after reading one review about how short it is#. As the sleeves are 3/4 length, I won't have to deal with too-long sleeves. I can see pairing this top with jeans or a skirt; black is so versatile and the clean simple lines of this top will go with a lot of items in my closet.

Great, lightweight sweater
I bought the sweater in the black and the red in size small. Like other reviews mentioned, the white and orange colors are a little on the see through side. Not so with the black and red. The red is more of a wine color- it's gorgeous in person! It's pretty true to the color in the photograph. I can't wait to wear these, and I love the pockets.
This vest is absolutely amazing! It is cut as a long piece of soft knitted cotton (mixed with wool) and there are two slits that let your arms slip in so you can wear it as a vest. I fell in love with the red version since the colours were so vibrant. Not only can you wear it as a vest, you can also arrange it so that you can wear it short-sleeved, or even with the sleeves coming down to your elbows, just like a cape. You can also drape it as a shawl or wear it as a thick scarf. And since he possibilities are endless, why not even wear it as a poncho! This statement piece is truly an investment that will last till the end of fall and it's a perfect transition piece from summer to autumn. It has that cool boho style and completely transforms an outfit (I would wear mine with a simple t-shirt and fitted jeans). It fits true to size. I am usually between 0 and 2 and the XS/S fit me perfectly. It wasn't too long and I didn't find any issue with the hi-low length of the vest. Very highly recommended!

I just tried on this interesting poncho/blanket/vest yesterday, and I wish I would have read the reviews first-- it didn't even occur to me to try bringing the arm-holes lower, which would be very interesting! The length of the material is horizontal, rather then vertical, which is what gives so much material around the neck, like a large bulky scarf. The fiber-content is 85% cotton, 10% poly, 2% wool and 2% alpaca. And the feel of it is lush without being heavy.
I tried on the Smaller version, as well as the Larger version, and honestly couldn't tell much difference. (I even compared the back-length between the arm-holes, and it might differ by 1/2 inch) For ref, 5'8", 135 lbs, 34-B.
The good news here is that one size could fit most. Bad news is that one was snagged already-- perhaps by a hanger. Needs TLC, but on the other hand, the loops are large, so probably one can wiggle or re-tie anything that gets caught up.
I'll give it another try!

Fell in love with the colors of this before I realized what a great piece this was. It can be worn so many ways, my favorite is taking the bottom corner of one side and bringing it up to the opposite shoulder and taking a kilt safety pin to keep it in place. It lifts the mood of a simple pair of jeans and boots to the next level. Strongly recommend this one...grab it before it is gone...
