Rated 1 out of 5Â by Amber82 Looks cheap
I was super excited when I ordered this cardigan, and very disappointed when it arrived. The fabric and construction looked and felt very cheap. It didn't hang properly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LauraNYC Stylish casual
I see another reviewer thinks the fabric looks/feels cheap, but I disagree entirely. To me, it's the age old issue that EVERYTHING from Anthro costs more than it really should... But, in my opinion, this particular piece is no different in quality than the general Anthro standard.
I have a petite, fairly athletic frame and the XSP fits me well. I wear this piece as pictured --with jeans and a white tank-- and it looks great! I feel stylish yet casual. Perfect for the office.
My only hesitation with it is that from the back it looks a little bit like a robe since it's so long. But I don't have a problem with it because I'm always buzzing around, and people will see the 360 view.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Karebair Casual Elegance, Sleeves Run a Bit Tight
I tried on both colors of this cardigan, in 2 different sizes, and I agree with a previous reviewer about the only basic difference between any 2 successive sizes being the tightness of the sleeves. So if you find the upper arms in your usual size to be too tight for your liking, try the size up if you can. I couldn't get the cardigan to form long "lapels" with the stripes showing outside, as in the first photo; they would revert back to that of Photo 4 where the model is walking through a meadow. But it doesn't take much movement for the stripes underneath to clearly show. I plan to wear the navy cardigan with tights, a white or colorful tee, a tapered knit skirt above the knees and taller boots this fall, but it looks great in the photos with a tee and jeans. My only concern is the delicate fabric. There were a couple very small snags in the sleeves of the one I purchased, but they weren't located in a blatantly visible area, so I'm going to be more careful when wearing, I'm not going to wear any rings with protruding prongs, or place a clutch under my arm that could snag it further. Overall, it exudes "casual elegance", which is what Anthropologie does so well, especially the way the lower portion softly waves as you walk.
