Central Shirt in Dahl Plaid

Central Shirt in Dahl Plaid is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally lives up to the hype! I'd heard great things about this line of shirts, and decided to try it myself with the festive Dahl print for the holidays. I'm obsessed! So easy to throw on for the day, be comfortable and still feel really put together and stylish. Will definitely be coming back for more prints and colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortlessly Cool I bought this in my usual size small, and while it's a bit oversized, it's meant to be that way. It's soft and lightweight but not sheer. It'll be great with jeans and skirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top Love this top and looks great tucked in the front. It runs a little big. Had to return my small for an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute top I'm smitten with this shirt. I bought it and returned it because I wasn't sure about the oversized fit, but I couldn't stop thinking about it and bought it again. This time, I'm keeping it. I still am not crazy about the fit, but I LOVE the fabric. The short sleeves are cute too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rad Amazing!! For reference I’m 5’4, weigh 105. I ordered a XXS... Fits like the model, lose total tomboy-ish! Yet a tad tapered in the hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and soo comfortable I originally bought this shirt as I thought it would be cute for the holidays but it’s so lightweight and comfortable I will be wearing it year round. It doesn’t seem to fit as oversized as other madewell shirts have fit me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy and classic I love love love love this shirt! I wear it with a thin black long sleeve T-shirt underneath with those fabulous black button front jeans from Madewell of course, And I could go absolutely anywhere. It is a casual feel and yet it has a sexiness to it that I love. The material feels so rich and elegant and the color is such a perfect red ... not too blue, not too orange...just perfect. Looks great with boots, short or long... you cannot go wrong with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the fabric and concept I'm not very good at wearing the central shirts. i think they're better on girls who are cooler than me. I look a little frumpy in them. Definitely looks better with a front tuck. I kept the shirt. It looks great with a black jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty, but better for straight frames I ordered this on a whim during the online sales. When it came in it wasn't as high of quality feeling of fabric as I thought it would be, but it isn't bad. It's a really pretty shirt, but also a little too boxy for my frame. I ordered a large in hopes that it would fall oversized and be cozy. But the top of it is a lot bigger than the bottom. I have wide/curvy hips so I can't really wear this top straight as I wanted without looking larger than I am. It works really cute tied up/cropped but that limits how I can wear it. Also, since I sized up it's a little poofy on the top once tied. Lovely shirt, but definitely meant for more of a lean/straight figure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me The pattern is darling. However the shape is terrible. It’s just huge on And is like a big box. Sorry madewell. Not for me.
