The Perfect Tunic in Silk

The Perfect Tunic in Silk is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from summer weight, fall color The silk in this tunic is very lightweight, similar to a thin poly crepe, while the charcoal color is more suited to fall/winter wear. Sizing is TTS, leaving just enough room for a thin tee underneath for added warmth. Overall it’s a nice piece, just a bit seasonally confused.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This has become my favorite closet addition as one of my wardrobe staples. This tunic is amazingly versatile. It transitions easily from day to night (workwear to a night on the town). I read several reviews on the sheerness of this tunic and found that it is absolutely NOT a problem for me, as long as you're not wearing bright colored undergarments. One of the things that I did notice that has not been mentioned is the length of the sleeves; they are super long on me. If you are a petite gal, I would suggest wearing the this tunic as pictured (sleeves bunched). Plan to keep this in heavy rotation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortlessly chic top This top is truly lovely, made of high quality fabric and fits great (I'm 5'5" and 108lb and the XS is perfect). Love the unique modern neckline. This piece is easy to dress up or down and feels great on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I Could Order Another... ...but alas this is sold out. I'm working on paring down my closet to beautiful basics, and this fit the bill perfectly. Not as sheer as another reviewer mentions, at least not too so for me to feel comfortable with a nude color bra under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic Wardrobe Staple Love this blouse... got it in white. Super chic neckline and perfect fit. Highly recommend to wear on it's own or under a cropped sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous cut This is possibly my favorite silk long sleeve shirt. It is so versatile! I wear it completely buttoned up and tucked into a skirt for work and then undone with skinnies in the evening. Cut is incredibly flattering. Bought it in the charcoal gray color first, then went back for the white. The white is very sheer which adds to its sexiness. Couple potential issues: like most madewell shirts, it runs on the looser/larger side. Went down a size on this one (I'm 5'4", 120lbs, bought it in XS) but found that the sleeves exactly hit my wrists. So if you tend to have longer arms be careful with this shirt. The other issue is that after two rounds at the dry cleaners the shirt had already lost a bit of its luster. Still looks beautiful but for that reason I would say wait for it to go on sale! If it's still available that is...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design This tunic is different from any other silk blouse I own. I love the design of the neck/ banded collar. It adds a modern, updated twist to the design. Looks great with dress pants. I ordered the dark olive expecting it to be plain and drab, but it's not. The olive color is really striking in person. I ordered my normal Madewell size and found it fit perfect. It's roomy and falls below the waist (but not too much) giving it a comfortable feel. Overall, I am happy with this Madewell purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great staple blouse, tucked in or out, can dress up or down I travel a lot for business and this is a great versatile shirt. Very flattering and super comfortable. Have in cream but may get gray too. Collar looks great open or closed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty I love the green color. Looks great with anything. Hangs longer in the back. Got compliments on it. Prob wouldn't buy it for $100 but since I got it for just over half the price, can justify it.
