I'd been eyeing this sweater online for a while, but the cream, which I really wanted, bounced out of stock many times and shipping is so expensive, I didn't place an order. Based on the catalog shot (of the blue variation), I wasn't sure this would be a good look on my figure, as I'm curvier on the bottom than on the top and it looks sort of short on that model, despite the description stating a length of 30". I took a trip to the store a week ago and saw a lone size S in the blue on the rack, and decided to try on, despite my usual size being M (I'm a solid 6/8 on top). It's perfect! Long, flattering, and just lovely. Plenty of room, M would definitely be too big. The blue color is a deep shade of sea blue and really brings out my eyes against my dark hair and fair skin. The knit is substantial, warm, and extremely cozy, yet the sweater drapes perfectly and has great movement. I love the cables and the button detail at the sides. Great touches. Happy with the blue! Might even watch for other colors if this ever reaches sale, though I doubt it will since it's so perfect.

Sooo cute and cozy!
I wouldn't have recognized this sweater from the picture, or even looked at it twice, because I don't think it's particularly flattering on the model, but when I saw it in the store in Petite sizing in the gray, I fell in love. The gray emphasizes the gorgeous cabling and it's sooo soft. It looks better a bit more fitted through the body so I'd say size down. I'm 5'1" and have a 32 DD chest and the PXS had plenty of room, even for a long sleeved tee underneath. I would have like to try the PXXS for comparison but they didn't have one and it may have emphasized the girls too much. It's a bit longer on me than on the model which I like with skinnies and the curved hem is flattering and lengthens the leg. I was irritated with myself for missing the sweater sale so I passed on this on Friday but couldn't get it out of my head so I snatched it up on Saturday. So glad I did. Love, love, LOVE!

Rarely do I buy the same piece of clothing in several different colors, but this sweater is an exception. I bought the purple one first because the other colors were sold out. I fell in love the second I put it on. It is stunning, having everything one could want in a sweater! I received SO many compliments that I picked up the neutral, then the grey. The neutral has contrasting tabs on the buttons, which the purple does not, so it has a little more character. When I received the grey one I was convinced that the designer had out done itself! It is so lush, and has the most contrasting hues of grey running through it, along with contrasting tabs over the buttons. This will be my go to sweater for the rest of my life!
This sweater caught my eye in store and I couldn't stop thinking about it so I ordered it online. I would have definitely paid full price but was thrilled to see it went on sale! I loved it so much I ended up purchasing in two colors. It is so comfy and is a staple item that goes with anything. I have the green and cream and they are both gorgeous. I wasn't a huge fan of the gray stripes, otherwise I would have bought that one too! THis was true to size, and perhaps just a touch roomy. I ordered my usual size small. I am 5'4" 140 lbs with broad shoulders. The regular size fit me but if you are any shorter that 5'4" I would probably get the petite size.

I'm not one of those people who buys an item in every color, but I have to admit I went back and purchased this cardigan in the gray color after receiving the green one. It's as comfortable as my favorite old hoodie, yet it looks like I put effort into my outfit for the day. ;)
I am typically a size 2 at Anthro and between an XS and a S. I think the XS would have fit me well, but I ordered the S because I like my sweaters to be a bit oversized. I am able to wear a long-sleeve knit or thin sweater underneath it and feel very comfortable. Order this one… you won't regret it!

Get one NOW!
I ordered this in both the green and neutral colors and am considering ordering the black and white as well. SO SO SO soft. Wearing this feels like heaven. And the length of the sleeves also totally won me over. I love sleeves that run a little long... just like the picture shows. Such a cozy and soft cardigan. I'm very pleased with the purchase and you can't beat the sale price for the quality here. The only complaint I would make is that it is partly made of rayon, which can make washing it a bit iffy... tag recommends hand wash or dry clean. Other than that, this sweater is perfect.
I saw this cardi in the sale section at my local Antho. Wow! The knit looks amazing from the back. The only size left was a reg small in the natural color. I'm 5'2" 120Ibs. I think it runs a little small. The sleeve length was perfect although the actual sleeves were skin tight on me. It'll be ok with a cami underneath but I could fit anything with long sleeves under. The length on me was the same as the model; back just covered my behind; front was the same as the model pics. The think the grey pic was most accurate for me. I didn't have a lot of extra material to cover my front and recreate that flowy drapy look. Instead the front draped more to the sides #like the model in grey#. I don't have a big bust #34B#. It still looks ok. I would have preferred more knit at the front, but the rest of the cardi was stunning that I could overlook that.

I bought this to go with the lilac garden loungers to well, lounge around the house. I wear this with a white tank and I absolutely love it! They are perfect together. The sweater is warm and very, very pretty, especially from the back. I have the lilac color which is the color of a peony to me. Very nice.

...but not quite what I expected. Based on the neutral colored photos, I expected the wool to be a bit stiffer. The open front drapes a little awkwardly on me - the grey photos are a better representation of how the cardigan actually falls on the body (mine at least). Based on the previous reviews, I wasn't sure about sizing; I am 5'8. 140lbs, 36D and I purchased a size medium. I am happy with the fit for the most part, but I do feel like the arms are a little short (afterward, I noticed both models push their sleeves up); still, I have rather long arms, so this might not be a problem for others.
The positives: it is such a beautiful knitted sweater, and the fringe detailing is stunning. i also really like the neutral color - it allows the pattern in the back to really get noticed. Also, it's very comfortable, and I don't find it itchy at all. If you can get it on sale, I would recommend.
The fit of this sweater is very flattering and I like the kind of deconstructed look it has. I ordered the grey color and I think the online picture is accurate... very very light grey. I wish the sleeves were about an inch longer. With my arms at my sides, they hit just right but when I extend my arms out, they come up short, which kinda drives me nuts. I don't like having just a hint of my wrist exposed. It is also made of wool, so it's not exactly soft. I also kinda wish it didn't have a hood... I feel like the hood makes this sweater look reeeeally casual. I was hoping to wear it to work, but I don't think I will. I'm still kind of on the fence about whether or not to return this... again, the fit is very flattering. Maybe if it were discounted another $20 I'd be firm on keeping it, but I think I might rather have my money back at the current price point.

The deep rust orange color of this jacket drew me in, but the designed hooked me. There are vertical lines running down the front of this jacket starting at the top of the shoulders, and curving inward toward the center following the line of the lapel, down to the waist tie, and then the lines run straight down to slightly flared out below the waist tie, creating an instant illusion of an hourglass figure. Also, the hood starts slightly in the front of the jacket at the shoulders making the shoulders appear broader (and thus the waist even more slender). All of these design features together make this jacket a clear winner. Quality excellent. Tuck a pretty infinity scarf into this one and go! I found it TTS. (5'2", 32C), and I took an XXSP.

This jacket is so warm, but not bulky very comfortable.
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 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!

Great cowl neck sweater
I absolutely love this sweater. I purchased it in green and loved it so much I went back and bought it in orange as well. The material is very comfortable, very chic and stylist. Originally bought it because I saw someone rocking' it in the #Anthropolgie gallery and I am so glad I did. Highly recommended!
What can I say that hasn't already been said? This sweater is absolutely lovely. Initially, I tried the plum in a S (I take a 6/8) but decided to go for the cream color in a M which I think is the right size and shape on my curvy figure. The length and cut fit as on the model - not too close-fitting and long enough to look demure with leggings and boots, yet perfect, still, over a skirt or with jeans. The pattern is interesting and stunning, and I like the asymmetrical hem as it does look intentional and pretty. The yarn itself is a beautiful ply of ivory and taupe. I have dark hair, blue eyes, and fair skin with rosy cheeks and felt that the color looked pretty against my complexion. I believe I'll wear this timeless beauty for a long time to come, and I believe it's well worth the price.

Beautiful sweater. I was drawn to plum color although you can't see the detail as well. You can rectify that with a thin tee or a camisole in a contrasting color. I don't need another neutral pullover sweater. I found it ran large, especially in the middle and sizing down definitely made it fit my pear shape a bit better. I do expect some stretch due to the knit, so depending on your desired fit, you may want to consider sizing down. I'm normally a M in sweaters. Like always.
Knit is very soft and item seems well made. I like the split collar and look forward to pairing with cords or skinny jeans.

I receive compliments on this sweater every time I wear it. I'm 5'8", slender and a D cup. I bought a small and it's perfect. I wear a white cami underneath and it works just fine. It's very soft and not too heavy for wearing it in the south.
