Rated 5 out of 5 by eh18 Looove it <3
I was looking for another item from Anthro actually, and when I was browsing the store, this jacket caught my eyes and I needed to try! So cute that I couldn't resist purchasing it. It's military inspired jacket with laces, makes the jacket more feminine. Love the cut and the length, not too short, not too long. I was wearing a skirt that time and it looked great with it. You can adjust the waist inside. Light weight jacket, so perfect for LA weather! Got my normal size xs and fits perfect!!

This jacket is just all-around cute. The cotton is very soft and flexible. This is not a stiff jacket. The cotton is a medium weight (not for winter) and great for Spring or Fall weather. The zipper worked great, as well as the front snaps too. The sleeves can be made longer because they have snap tabs.
This jacket is longer on me than shown, however. But I'm short and not as tall as the model is. The front pockets are nice and big and the hood is a nice size too. That was the selling feature for me...a hood... 90% of my jackets/coats have a hood.
The lace is not the entire lining of this jacket. It's just a border inside along the front so that it peeks out a bit when the coat is open. The lace is not fragile and appears to be durable.
I bought an XL and I tried it on with medium thick alpaca sweater and the fit was fine. So, I'd say this runs TTS and can be layered if you need a little more warmth on the day you wear it. You can also tighten the waist via an inside cord if you want.
They say you can dry clean or wash in cold water and tumble dry and then iron. The color is rich and not a drab olive also.

Found this today while shopping for some sale vases. Got those too...... I had not seen it online and when I spotted it I bee lined to take a look. Love the design and fit. The lace inserts and laced back hem give a standard khaki jacket a great design twist. There is even a lace insert on the hood and on the pockets. The waist area can be adjusted from the inside. The sleeves can be rolled up with snaps or left unrolled. I think it may run a tiny bit big. I wound up with a large but could have taken a medium. Thought I might want more room for a sweater or more layers as it is not a heavy jacket. Love this and worth the price.
