Central Drapey Shirt

Central Drapey Shirt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the flow! I really appreciate how heavy the material is, the shirt drapes in a flattering way because of it. I also love that it’s not see through. I despise having to wear cami shirts underneath and I don’t have to with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Top I love this top so much! I bought it in antique coral, and though I normally don't wear pink, I thought I'd try something different. The color is gorgeous and the cut and fabric fall so nicely. I am 5', 110 lbs. and go between an XS and XXS. Got an XXS in this one since it looks like it runs big and it fits perfectly with just enough drape. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool girl wardrobe essential Listen, this shirt is a must-have, particularly in black. It runs a little large so if you want a more form-fitting silhouette, buy a size down. It can be worn tucked in the front and loose in the back, or completely untucked, and it still looks pulled together and modern. I'd even go so far as to say it's one part cool girl, one part Johnny Cash (in a totally feminine way). Go for it. You won't regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, effortless Good quality blouse that lays very nicely. Fabric is perfect for that oversized drapey look without making you look frumpy. Bought it in white and would also order the green if it was in stock. Happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style Love the look. Very different style and color than anything else I own. Easy to just throw on. Can tuck in the front and let the back cover your rear side. Or can leave both front and back untucked. Looks great with jeans. I found it ran very big. I normally wear an 8/10 or medium and I needed a small in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Staple So happy with this purchase! The slightly heavier material makes it lay so well, and is very flattering. Can dress up for work, or down for a night out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to wear I love the courier shirt so I also love the central shirt. The green color is gorgeous and so easy to wear on the weekend and when I go to work. A slightly oversized, boxy top that is just perfect for everything. Comfortable and great quality. Got my normal size, a small, fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This top is exactly what I needed in my closet. I didn't have a casual collard top like this & I loved it so much I got it in another color :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely crepe like shirt Because of the material this shirt has more of a "dress-up" feel than cotton. Also really liked the khaki color which has its own impact . Will go beautifully with black, white, navy or any other basic color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Shirt I'm in love with this shirt. I usually wear a Medium and in the past have found that this style of shirt can be too baggy (like, not cute baggy but sloppy baggy) in my normal size, but I took a gamble and ordered a Medium in dark blue. It's perfect, the right amount of over sized style without making me look like a child in an adult's shirt. It can be dressed up for work, or left on its own for casual days. It is extremely comfortable and well made ;-)
