Rated 5 out of 5┬áby phant22 Long sleeves
I was so happy to stumble upon this blazer. I have been searching for a more casual/trendy black blazer for a few months. This one is perfect with its relaxed fit, funky pockets, and reasonable price.
I found the blazer to run small. I am usually a 2 or 4 at anthro but I had to size up to a 6. I have broader shoulders which fit into both the 4 and 6; however the waist section of the size 4 ran small and I could barely button the blazer.
The best thing about this blazer is the sleeve length. I am 5'10" and the sleeves hit below my wrists.
Also, the photo doesn't really show it, but there is a natural gap when the blazer is buttoned.

I picked this up in-store last week, and this is going to be a great fall/winter staple in my wardrobe.
I have been looking for long-sleeved blazers as the weather cools down, and this one has a solid weight to it without being either bulky or overly warm. It looks great as a casual accent over jeans and a shirt, but it transitions equally smoothly with slacks or a skirt and a blouse. When buttoned, there is a natural gap in the front, so the edges do not line up against each other, but it works either buttoned or left open. Plus, the pockets are deep enough to hold everything from flash drives to keys to granola bars, but the jacket hangs evenly despite added weight in either side.
I found it runs a trifle small: I usually wear a 0 at Anthropologie, but a) it was a little tight across the shoulders and b) I wanted something that would comfortably fit over a blouse. One size up to a 2 worked perfectly, so if you're between sizes or intend to layer underneath it, definitely size up.

Classic and trendy all in one - this blazer is just perfect. It's made of cotton but feels really expensive. It's totally structured and yet has this great stretch to it (I have broad shoulders - so this is nice). And the pockets are that touch of different that every women wants. I tried on both black and blue. Honestly, who can pass up the perfect black blazer? I had to pass on the blue. While it was a stunning color, it would only be something I'd wear in August with a dark tan. And if the fall presents this color - and people are rocking it out - I'll be back to purchase the blue too. :) Fits true to size - definitely size up if you are in between.
