Rated 5 out of 5 by donkey OBSESSED
After seeing this styled in the current lookbook, I was so anxious to try this on. This vest is just so amazing and versatile, it works with obvious choices but it also changes the look of anything such as a beautiful flowy dress or skirt. Because of this, it's completely versatile and an outfit maker.
I tried on both the M and S and asked the SA her opinion (I'm typically a M/8). The vest looked best OPEN in the small, but it was a bit tight when I closed with the buttons on the bottom (because the vest is double-breasted and overlaps when closed). The M was a bit too big open, but fit appropriately when buttoned. The SA agreed that I would mainly wear this open, so I bought the small and actually re-sewed one of the inside buttons to be closer to the outside so now it works perfectly!
You won't be disappointed with this vest, it'll change up your entire closer!
Also, FYI, the entire inside back of the vest is lined with the faux fur so it is quite cozy and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlk0124 great fall/winter staple
I'm not a big denim vest person, but as soon as I tried this on, I fell in love. It complements any plain tee/tunic and looks great with leggings and fall boots. The quality is great and the cozy lining definitely keeps the body warm without looking bulky. I will be wearing this for years to come! I found this runs true to size - I purchased a small and am 5'3" and 125 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ishopanthro This season: the vest
Vests are on trend this season, and at Anthro you'll find great ones like this. I spotted the Lapka Vest in store and tried it on, but I wasn't going to pay the hefty price. But when the Thanksgiving sale rolled around, I added it to my online cart, and it was mine. It's of great quality, and the XS fit my 5'2" 102 lb self just perfectly. Another great find at Anthro- if only I didn't have to wait for sales to roll around for gems like this to be mine.
