Rated 5 out of 5Â by anthropologist plaid jacket
Love the pretty colors of blue and green, something just drew me in to try this cute jacket. The style and length are perfect for fall.
However, I'm not sure why this is called a coat, since it is not for cold winter wear. The fabric is soft but definitely a fall material not thick and warm enough for cold weather. The jacket is nicely lined. Construction is great as always from this brand. My only gripe would be the bracelet sleeves, which are adorable but don't give enough versatility and warmth for the cooler fall days. I want long sleeves for outer wear once summer has ended. Also, the sleeves are just slightly bell shaped in that they are wide at the forearm/wrist.
Sizewise, I am a small or xs and I would need a small to fit my shoulders but an xs fit better through the body. This is a common problem for me, so maybe I could just move the buttons over a bit on the small to get a perfect fit. So all in all it runs tts.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by BethesdaGirl wish it were on sale or had longer sleeves
LOVED this jacket. There is something about the blue piping that just makes it so cute. The fit was great and looked great on. I didn't get it though, because the sleeves were short and I just couldn't justify the price for a coat that can't be worn for very long. Also, I thought the short arms looked weird with a long sleeve shirt underneath it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Alnilam Cute, but impractical
I was immediately drawn to this jacket when I saw it in-store because of the bright colors and cute design. I was disappointed when I tried it on, however--the sleeves are very short, just a little past three-quarters length, and the overall length is quite short as well, ending just below my waist. So I'm not quite sure when I would wear this jacket--even though the design and material seem to make it a fall jacket, it would look silly with long sleeves underneath so it would only work for a very warm fall day, So while it's very cute, I can't justify even the sale price for a jacket I could only wear for one, or at the most two, weeks out of the whole year. I wish they would have designed this with longer sleeves!
