Rated 5 out of 5 by Yes you need a new black jacket You may think you have enough black jackets, but— yes— this one is different. Cut short, closely fitted with a peplum-y flare, it also has the satin lapels of a tuxedo (duplicated on the peplum area). This jacket evokes both Anna Karenina and Fred Astaire. it's in all-weather black crepe (lined of course) and is fashioned to be "thrown over" a dress or top. It purposely doesn't button. Here's the genius: so often buttoned jackets are uncomfortable to sit and/or work in. Should you unbutton it you risk losing the line, and it can flap and sag about your torso. This jacket isn't meant to button, thus won't lose its nipped look (although I could see closing it with a sparkly brooch for another effect). Like I said— genius. Fits TTS with a hint towards bigger. I am either a 0 or 2, and the 0 was perfect. September 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by If I could buy it twice-I would!! LOVE IT! This is an amazing jacket! If you are considering it at all, try it in and fall in love. Material in lovely and the style is classic, feminine, and chic. I have paired this with skinny jeans and heels for a night out then black suit pants & white tuxedo style shirt for work. This is so versatile and TTS-though I normally wear a 2 and sized up to 4 so I could wear long shirts underneath. So glad I splurged, will be wearing for seasons to come! September 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this blazer so much! I highly recommend this jacket. Yes, the price is a bit steep, but this will become your go-to fashion staple for many, many years to come! The tailoring on this jacket is pristine. And it is so versatile that you can wear it just about anywhere: work, out for drinks, the symphony, a cocktail party. Not to mention you can wear it with just about anything: a dress, a mini, leggings, jeans, a skirt. And I love the idea another reviewer wrote of taking a brooch and clipping the blazer shut if you wanted to close it. Totally changes the look! While the construction is impeccable, something to keep in mind is that this jacket is unforgiving in shoulder width and arm girth. I normally wear a size 6 or 8 or S or M in tops at Anthro and I went up to a 12 in this blazer. If you have very broad shoulders - mine are wider than my hips - and/or athletic arms like I do you, then you are going to need to go up a size or two from the higher range (if applicable) you normally order at. Keep this fact in mind, too if you ever plan on wearing long sleeved shirts or long sleeved dresses when choosing your size. Even with the upsizing the blazer still creates a flattering, defined silhouette on me, so don't worry about your waist disappearing. This high-waist peplum does all the work for you! Hope this helps a little! October 24, 2012

Size Guide

How to Measure

Bust

Measure under your arms at the fuller part of your bust. Keep tape level across your shoulder blades.

Natural Waist

Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.

Drop Waist

Measure around your body 1 1/2" below your natural waist.

Hips

Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.

Inseam

Using a pair of your pants that fit well, measure from crotch seam to bottom of leg.

Rings

Wrap a length of string around your finger and mark where the end touches. Measure the distance between the end of the string and the mark you've made to determine what size to order.
