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 4 out of 5 by from One of My Faves I have had this top for a few months and wear it frequently. I tend to dislike tops with sleeves because I can get sweaty, but this top is really light and breezy, and can be worn even on hotter days. I only took off one star because it wrinkles very easily--- I definitely have to steam it between wearings and after each washing. I find that to be the case with a lot of Madewell clothes. I took this in my regular XS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go-to top I'm in love with this top. It's comfortable, looks good tucked or let loose, buttoned or half buttoned, and highly versatile. The main reason I don't give it 5 stars, is that although I love the feel of the fabric, the combination of fabric and color makes this a wild card in humid or very hot weather. I tend to sweat easily during the summer in my hometown and this shirt shows the slightest bit of moisture immediately. However, the lightweight nature of the material could also be great for vacationing in tropical climates. Overall a great addition to any closet.

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.

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 lovely light voluminous top I love the color of this top and the airiness of it! It will be a great go-to shirt in hot weather. I usually wear a medium in Madewell shirts but I ended up loving the way the small fit me= still airy but not over baggy. I highly recommend!
