Â by floris Not really outerwear
I think of this as less of a coat and more of a top, one that needs to stay buttoned. I usually wear a S or XS in Anthro coats and the S worked best for me. The sleeves were the right length and when it's buttoned up it fit me like a glove. But I was wearing a thin, knit dress under it. Not sure how it would look with jeans under it. I can't see wearing it unbuttoned for two reasons: not being able to show off the cute collar defeats the purpose and it would show how stretched out the button holes get. I really liked what I could do with the collar. I'll wait till it's not 90degrees where I live and hopefully it will be on sale then.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tulip1 Perfect for me!
Saw this sweater coat online and had to go into the store to give it a try! I am 6'1", so I fully expected the waistline to be too high and the sleeves too short. I was so pleasantly surprised - truth be told, I was ecstatic! Not only was the fit right on, but I was able to buy true to size instead of ordering up to account for length. I agree with the reviewer who said it was more straight than A-line. I usually dress casually #I'm a stay-at-home mom#, but this sweater coat will make cute jeans, boots and long-sleeve T look pulled together in a hurry! Often I wait for sales, but I had to grab this one full-price!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SuSu I was sooo happy when I saw this item browsing the Anthropologie website, it's totally reminiscent of the old Anthropologie. When I had ordered it, it was only available in the mustard color.
I received it in the mail today and couldn't be more ecstatic. I ordered a medium, and I usually wear a medium with Anthropologie cardigans/sweaters/jackets depending on the cut, and because I tend to like a looser fit. Being 5'2 with a 34C bust, it fit perfectly, definately couldn't have done a smaller size. The sleeves are not fitted which makes me happy, because Anthropologie used to have really fitted sleeves with their sweater coats making it difficult to layer a long sleeve tee under. I would order your true size with this sweater coat.
The fabric is slightly itchy if you're not wearing anything under, since I plan on wearing it with long sleeve tees under it shouldn't be a problem. Personally with it's unique design I would still keep it even if I wear a tank under.
Since this is such a unique piece not sure if it'll make it to sale, I'd get it now if you don't want to miss out. Now, however that it just appeared in more color I'm contemplating getting it in red instead, or keeping both! :-)
