Central Shirt in Bright Indigo

Central Shirt in Bright Indigo is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, Classic Piece This shirt is super's lightweight and soft, and looks very cute with the bottom tied into a knot. I do agree with what another reviewer said about when the last button is buttoned, it pulls a little (I do have somewhat wide hips though, so skinny ladies might not have this issue). Runs large, but that's the style. I am 5'7", 160 lbs, and the medium is a good fit for me. Perfect spring/summer shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy oversize top Love this top! Summer is quite hot where I live~clingy tops make it hotter! This top can be dressed up or down. Shorts, skirts, or jeans will work well with it. Underneath a sweater or sweatshirt when Fall comes. Classic and versatile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite! This shirt is incredibly comfortable and fits true to size (but it is meant to be oversized so keep that in mind when ordering). It is a super soft cotton/chambray-like material. I wear it with jeans to pull off that perfect "denim on denim" look when I'm out with friends, class it up with some slacks and heels for work, or wear it with shorts on the weekends. Absolutely my new favorite, it gets so much wear and goes with everything. I am 5'6" with 36D, 145 lbs and the Medium fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved fit over the Courier Shirt I own the courier shirt in gingham and this has a similar weight. Super thin and soft and will be great for hot weather. Fit's oversized, but the shirring on the shoulders makes the fit far more flattering than the courier shirt. Also the armholes are bigger than the courier's (which are abnormally tight). Fits very large but that is the style - would size down for something more fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Chambray Ok... So the material isn't actually chambray, but that's why this shirt is so great! It looks just like chambray, but it isn't as thick which will be great for the summer. I love that the buttons are a rich brown color and how soft it is. I am a 34B and the small fits comfortably. Overall a great purchase and addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an easy summer staple Automatically gravitated towards this top because of the color and fabric (hello indigo, obsessed!!) but fell even more in love when I tried it on. It runs large (I typically am a xs or s, and got the xxs in this style) so worth a try-on if you are unsure. It's so comfortable and the drape is really flattering. Highly recommend, I hope they have more colorways in the works. I will rebuy for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from might want to go down a size, but a great top! This is the perfect summer top. It bunches and blouses a bit when worn loose, but it tidies up nicely when tucked in. Not too thin or see-through, but cool enough for summer. I went down to an XXS on this and I'm usually an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shirt of ever This is my second one of these shirts because I wear the first one so much :) I truly LOVE this shirt and can't say enough great things about it. It goes with everything, is so cool and comfy, and the perfect Chambray color. IN LOVE! Watch me buy a third one to have on hand one day. Ha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shirt for all seasons!!! This shirt is so wonderful and light weight! I wish it came in a million more colors. With the hot Las Vegas weather, I will be able to wear it in a lot of different ways and through out the year. More colors please!! I always order a small at Madewell, and this in a small worked perfect.
