Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lubella Perfect lightweight vest
This vest just arrived and I'm a big fan. I was a bit surprised at how thin and lightweight it was, but I love wearing vests in warmer weather, so this will be perfect straight through summer. The color is as pictured and the details are fantastic. The length is the best part. I have bigger hips and am always looking for longer lengths to flatter them, this hits at my lower hip and scoops a bit lower in back. It's such a flattering length! The waist can be cinched or loosened, the pockets are deep and the hood is light and wide. There is no stretch to this vest so I'd recommend ordering true to size. I'm normally a L or XL in anything Anthro and the XL is perfect.

The length of this vest is superb--can be worn modestly with leggings and skinny jeans. Zip closed or snap at the waist. Lightweight fabric. Consider this a versatile jacket/trench alternative. A two way zipper would have been a handy detail. The waist can be adjusted for fit. The string ties in the back hem, however, are pointless and draw unnecessary attention in an unflattering way. I recommend knotting and snipping off the trailing strings. I'd even consider closing the back vent into one long seam. The pockets aren't as useful as they appear--shallow and open on the side, so virtually nothing of value can be stashed in any of them. The zippers are just sewed on for appearance and do not open to a pocket. To be really fabulous, there must be some alteration to pockets so that wearing this topper will truly eliminate the need to strap on a bag.

I love this vest. The shoulders are a little boxy on me but it's such an easy piece to style that I had to get it. I've worn it many times and love to through it on to take any outfit to a more fun, layered look.
The rope on the inside is adjustable so you can cinch it for a more flattering cut. I pulled it in to take the vest from a boxy fit to a more form fit.
