Rated 5 out of 5┬áby 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 5 out of 5┬áby Irma Great coat for warmer winters
I live in southern California and this coat is perfect for our winters. I bought a small so I can layer up. An x-small would have done fine, too, but I felt tight around the shoulders with layers. I bought the regular size and not petite even though I am 5 ft even and 105 lbs. The coat fit me well. First day I wore the coat I got compliments.
I know others complained about the sleeves, it looks good. It does depend on your body shape. Definitely a try it on to see if it fits well. I am glad I saw this in the store or I would never would have bought it or looked at it.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby 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!
