Central Drapey Shirt

Central Drapey Shirt is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
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 4 out of 5 by from So cute I ordered both colors! The fits makes it casual and fun but the material makes it nice enough to wear to work. I am very petite and the XS and XXS fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No! And to think, I wanted the green one... :/ I have 3 central shirts that I love and this one, well there are no words! How do you make a shirt so perfect with a fabric so terrible! If you look at it the wrong way... It wrinkles. I wore my loose overcoat over this shirt to a training, took it off and to my horror, I was a wrinkled mess!!! Embarrassment was an understatement. I've never been so embarrassed over the way my clothes looked! I love the drape but I just don't know if I can wear it again without carrying a hand steamer in my back pocket. I love you Madewell but... no, just no.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from stylish but not the best fabric This shirt is structured really well and fits great, but the only drawback is the material. In retrospect, I should have known since it's viscose, but I went for it anyways. I like it, and I'll still wear it, but the fabric does look sort of cheap, considering this is a pretty pricey shirt. And the armholes hang so low that if you tuck the shirt into high waist skinnies (which all my jeans are), you nearly tuck the armhole in (that said, it still looks great tucked).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Took a Risk Took a risk to get this shirt during the sale without trying it on, and definitely should have played it safe! the fit is awkward and large around most areas, and doesn't do any favors for women with curves. The color is really nice and the fabric is good quality, shame it didn't fit nicely otherwise it would have been a great deal!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has anyone washed instead of dry-cleaned?? This shirt says dry-clean only. Has anyone washed in the washing machine on cold??

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 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.
