Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Boyfriend Style Love it! I have another chambray shirt that's a more fitted cut and I wanted something that looked more like a boyfriend tee. The medium is big (I'm 5'2" 135 lbs) but it's what I was going for. It looks great open over a little dress or buttoned with a skirt. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best. Shirt. Ever. I've had this shirt for probably almost two years now and it is still a staple in my wardrobe (and I'm one who very much strives not to outfit repeat or hold on to any one piece for too long). I actually just came back to this page to see if it is still available, as I want to have a back up due to how much I wear it. I am shocked by all of the negative reviews talking about how it is way too big. It is an "ex-boyfriend" shirt, meaning, it is supposed to be big, but in the best way possible! It is loose-fitting, comfortable, and totally cute. I am petite and find it is the perfect fit and looks great with skinny skinny jeans!! Buy. this. shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ex-boyfriend Chambray Beautiful and comfortable. The only thing that threw me is that the back is longer and an odd shape from the front-other than that I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Chambray I have been looking for a lighter chambray shirt for a while and glad I found this one. It's comfortable and fits well. I have washed it a few times and it is holding up well so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to Advertising A wonderfully easy, versatile piece. I like it as a jacket over summer tops, and over leggings, too. Longer tail in back is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The name says it all This is such a great staple to have in your closet. I love the faded wash of this shirt and how soft it feels. Chambray is great because it can be worn with almost anything and look cool and relaxed or chic and polished depending on how the entire outfit is put together. I bought two in different sizes, my regular size and one size up to see how oversized it truly was. Umm, yeah it's pretty oversized. My regular size was loose, yet it had a slightly tailored look to it, whereas the size up was very generous in fabric. Depending on what look you're going for, either way is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first wear I ordered this online and the moment I put it on, I knew it would be forever. I actually came back here to order another in a smaller size, as I'm in the middle of some weight loss and I want to have this shirt in my wardrobe FOREVER. It's so incredibly comfy, roomy in the sleeve so it drapes perfectly rolled up or not, but not too wide in the shoulder, keeping the feminine fit. It also seems to taper ever so slightly in the waist, so you get the oversized, casual boyfriend fit, but still maintain a bit of femininity. I tell ya, this one is perfect, just like they say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Chambray Shirt! I've found myself loving chambray shirts in the past year or so. You can wear them year round, layer them, roll up the sleeves, dress them up or down, etc. Plus they are comfortable! I already have the J. Crew Keeper Chambray Shirt in both the light and dark washes, and was looking for another light wash and decided on this one. I am not disappointed! The color is great. It will look amazing with dark denim and printed skits. I really like wearing chambray with skirts that have a bold pattern. Much cuter than a plain tee! The long shirt tail will keep it tucked in or give extra coverage when untucked. I am 5'1" and usually wear a 2 and the xs fit me very well. I would not have wanted to size down or the last button would have been too tight across my hips. Of course the sleeves are a bit too long, but actually not as long as I had expected. A great shirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEXY TOMBOY I feel like an absolute babe in this shirt. It is a must for any 'cool' girl.
