Rated 5 out of 5 by VivP Love it!
I purchased this a few weeks ago in store, and I've already worn it three times! I've been wearing it as a jacket. It's very flattering, and very warm. It's definitely a staple for this season for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ana1bythesea simple & casual & elegant but going back
This is a beautiful jacket. I live by the beach and this time of year the winds can be quite cold , so this jacket seemed like the perfect solution.
I'm 5' 5" 1/2 128 lbs. I normally wear size 6 or 8 if something runs small. I ordered a M, this fit like an X LARGE. I should have ordered an XS, but how could I know that? I NEVER wear XS.
If you're a curvy or full figured girl/woman this might be the coat for you, or perhaps if you're tall with long legs (like this model) & you can carry an over- sized looking coat, than it's worth a go. It's interesting to note that in this photo, the jacket fits her hips perfectly, therefore, you'd never guess the cut at the hips is super wide. I find that very strange because as a photographer (who used to shoot fashion) I know how tiny models are, super skinny, so normally, I'd look at this coat and think it had a more fitted cut, but it's does not. Frankly, I'm left wondering if they pinned it in the back. My hips are 36 1/2' almost 37"(not small!) and this was like a baggy tank on me.
I've been shopping at Anthro forever & I've never tried on a M that was cut this large, from under the arms down to the hips. In fact I think many tops at Anthro have what I like to call "elf sleeves" because even at my size I they hardly fit. So ladies if you have normal arms with full bottom or like super baggy coats this is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nr92677 So sad it didn't work for me :(
I am tall (a little over 5'9) with a long torso and smaller waist. If the sweater had been a few inches longer, it would have been perfect. But it was way too short and boxy. I ordered the small and even if I had sized down that wouldn't have helped. Beautiful design, unique styling, just didn't work for me. I felt the arms could also be slightly longer (I have long arms) but it fit very well in the shoulders (good for some one with broad shoulders).
