Rated 4 out of 5Â by gardenia I made a beeline for this coat when I saw it in stores and am happy to report that it is well made, super soft, and incredibly warm, with a vibrant tribal lining to boot. However, I found my usual size 0 to be slightly overwhelming on my petite frame - the sleeves were too long and the collar fell past my shoulders. Looking at the product photos, I think I was wearing this wrong and it only looks good with the collar pulled way up. That makes it less versatile in my opinion, as does the fact that it looks boxy if zipped but not belted (so it may run slightly large?). The zipper also ends fairly high up, which I know is a pet peeve for some since the coat might blow open in the wind. All that being said, the quality is definitely there and I'll probably try it on again, but with the collar all the way up next time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SweetieDria Found the loops for the buttons
This jacket is the perfect weight if you live in a city where your winters are slightly mild. I normally wear a 0, the 2 is a little big but fits fine with a sweater and I love the construction of the jacket, timeless but chic. I finally found the loops for the buttons that the other reviewers are referring to. Even the SA coudn't help me figure this out so once I did, I figured I should post pics to help everyone else. The loops blend into the fabric on the collar but they are hidden in the edge of the collar, opposite collar that has the buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HikerChic Gorgeous, versatile, and warm!
This is probably my favorite and most used purchase from Anthro so far.
It is truly a gorgeous coat. I am short, and usually a size 10-12...so things make me look bigger or overwhelm my body easily. Also, I have a huge chest, which makes finding jackets difficult.
This was the perfect fit in a size 12. I can still layer underneath comfortably, and it looks great with everything - dresses, jeans, cords, you name it, it goes with it. I got the gorgeous turquoise color and I've gotten so many compliments while wearing it around my current residence in Portland as well as around in Seattle. I like to wear it with the collar buttoned up and it is so cozy and warm...just a tad itchy, but if I put my hair in it I don't notice. I have been out on nights where it's been in the low 30's and I've been pretty warm. I usually hang my coats on my office chair and then throw them in the backseat of my car while driving and I have not noticed any wrinkling or otherwise loss of shape.
I totally love this coat - it will be with me for many years!
