Rated 5 out of 5Â by planetqueen Adorable jacket! Runs big
I tried this jacket in the Anthro store today on a whim and ended up coming home with it. I usually wear a size 4 or S jacket, and in this I was able to easily wear a 0. There was plenty of room in the shoulders and arms, and it fit loosely over my 32DD bust - usually a problem area for me. The sleeves are too long, but I'm petite so I expect that. I can wear them turned up once and they're perfect. The fabric is very soft and lightweight, great for spring and fall. The 'patchwork' isn't as obvious in person as it appears on the website photo. The jacket resembles a short trench coat more than anything else, and looks great open, buttoned or belted. It is quite versatile, and can be worn as part of an outfit or as an outerwear jacket. I didn't realize ti came in petite sizes, so I may try the same size in petite to see if the sleeves fit better. I would recommend this one, but you may want to size down unless you want an oversized fit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by urbanshopper Great little jacket
As other reviewers have stated, the patchwork on this jacket is very subtle and very cool looking. It is a great, versatile, short trench. At 5' 9", 135 lbs., 34C chest, the size 6 is a great fit, even a little roomy. It came with an odd smell that came out with one wash and it washed great. I dried it on a hanger after straightening folds, etc. and it looks great, even without ironing.

I have been looking everywhere for a light, waist-length jacket that isn't too thick or heavy. This jacket fits the bill perfectly. I tried on a Size 2 since Size Zero wasn't available, and I thought it looked great on me. It does hang awkwardly when the jacket isn't buttoned or tied up, but I didn't mind. The sleeves fit nice and snugly without being too tight. When it's unrolled, the sleeves would cover half of my hands. Thankfully it is easy to roll it up without it sliding back down.
The material feels wonderful and would work great as a rainy day jacket too! I totally recommend this jacket to anyone. Especially now that it's getting cooler, it would be a perfect excuse to whip this jacket out and wear it. Worth every penny.
