Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and fit I love the central shirt so I might be biased and this shirt did not disappoint. The color is great, not too light. Great weight to fabric, not too heavy denim. I bought without seeing in person and was happy but again I love this style top. I bought the small even though I usually am a xs in this top , I wanted to have room to tie front and it’s great. I highly recommend this one if you want a light weight denim top for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite button-up!! Absolutely love this shirt!! The fabric is perfect, soft and lightweight. I love the color too, just the right shade of blue, not too light or dark. I am usually an XS or S but in this style since its very loose and big I chose an XXS and it fits perfect. The length is great too, you can wear it out, tuck it in or tie it in front. I can’t wait to get more colors of this shirt. Thank you Madewell for another closet must-have! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer chambray shirt Loved this shirt in stores - as all central shirts. I'm about 120 lbs, 5' - usually wear an xs or s, and I got this shirt in an xs because it's supposed to be an oversized fit, but I didn't want it to swallow me. The fabric is nice, not too heavy or thin - so perfect piece for summer with white shorts (front of shirt tucked in) or fall with black skinny jeans! The front/shoulder is pleated somewhat, but since I'm small chested it doesn't puff out or anything, Would definitely recommend this shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great central This is my 9th central shirt( I have a problem). This one is super soft and the fabric lays nicely. I like the pleats on the shoulders that others have mentioned not liking, as it adds some femininity and visual interest to the top. I had the indigo central and got rid of that one and replaced with this particular one as it lays better and has better fabric. This will get a lot of use. Thanks for providing such great basics to my closet, Madewell! For reference I am 5’7”, 140 pounds and typically wear a small/medium in tops and got a small here(I always do a a small in centrals, if you size down too much it just gets tighter around the hips, which isn’t flattering.)Get your normal size for it to look like the model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Shirt! I love the central shirts. They are great to wear in the spring/ summer months. I liked the Roberta wash central shirt so much that I bought two of them. They are very well made and also fit nicely. If anyone is on the fence about purchasing one, I’d say buy it. You will be pleased. Keep the central shirts in stock. They are a must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable I love this shirt! I have the central in white and drapy black and this just adds the perfect amount of color to my collection. It’s going to be perfect for spring and summer. I’m literally obsessed with central shirts. They can be dressy or casual. An absolutely necessary staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual shirt I loved this shirt when I saw it online and purchased it immediately. I purchased a white one as well. These shirts are great for those with any body shape. It's not intended to be figure flattering--for me I wanted these shirts to be comfortable. Despite eating well and exercising daily, my post-menopausal body has developed a bigger waistline. This shirt lets me be fashionable without having to worry about my new onset belly fat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I really love the simple beauty of this shirt. It has just the right amount of small pleats at the shoulders to make it feminine and pretty, while cool and relaxed. Perfect shirt to pair with jeans, a floral skirt or shorts and heels. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and versatile blouse I’m so happy with my indigo central blouse. I’m currently on a trip in Georgia and have had many compliments on this top. I purchased a size M (5’8” /approximate weight is 130) and the shirt is oversized on me (looks great with leggings). Madewell on-line shopping and shipping is wonderful!
