Effortless Tee in Stripe

Effortless Tee in Stripe is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome In my opinion, this shirt looks unflattering on the models, but it's actually incredible. It's insanely soft and very cute! Everyone needs one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit too boxy This shirt ran a bit boxier than the model for me. It's too short for me to wear with regular rise pants, but looks good with a pair of high-waisted pants. It's made of a thinner material than I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Comfort, Simple Style This is the easiest shirt to throw on to run errands, or to just relax around the house in. Looks awesome with a pair of dark jeans and Madewell booties with some simple jewelry. I bought this shirt in black and gray and love both!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the color I expected. I purchased the black stripe in medium. As other reviewers have said: yes, it is cropped. I'm pretty short and I thought sizing up would balance that out, but it was still quite cropped. The reason I returned it, however, is that the black is not black-and-white striped, but black-and-oatmeal striped. It was probably me just being lazy, because now If I look very closely I can vaguely see that, but if you don't zoom in you don't really see that distinction. Because I was looking for a cool black-and-white striped shirt, I had to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable and cute So comfortable and effortlessly cute I've wanted to wear it every day since i got it! It does have a little of a crop so I sized up from XS to S so it wouldn't be too short in the front. The stripes are so cute and it's 100% cotton, which I love!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute design, but execution could be improved Overall fit is not as flattering. I got a Small. I'm 5'5" and 120lbs. Shirt is a bit short, and sleeves are baggy. I feel if I had gotten an XS, the shirt would have been extremely short while the sleeves would fit better. After two washes, I felt the fabric wasn't holding up very well. Luckily I got it on sale, but would not pay for it at full cost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable, cropped length not long enough for my liking I bought this shirt in search of a good everyday striped shirt, but after a couple wears, I realized that the cropped length isn't for me. The sleeves are quite wide and the cut is boxy, resulting in a comfortable shirt minus the factor of length. I can see this working as a spring/summer shirt exclusively.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short, unimpressed Although I am busty, I'm also 5'1", so I expected this shirt to fit me just above the hips somewhat like the model (because she's likely much taller than me). On me, right out of the bag, it's a cropped shirt. It shows my belly button. It's also a very lightweight jersey that I didn't find exceptionally soft. It's thin enough to appear sheer when held up to the light. I have cheap tank tops made of thicker fabric with a softer hand. The pocket has folded over at the seam because the fabric just has no structure. I am all about slouch and slugcore, and I don't even mind if a boxy or striped shirt doesn't flatter my silhouette, but I'm just really bummed about the length and material of the shirt. I expected more for my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very cropped- not working for me I love Madewell's stripe tees but this one just didn't work for me. It is very cropped, and I'm short (5'3"). I just don't like the cropped tee trend so it isn't for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Short A customer service representative recommended this shirt to replace another shirt I bought from Madewell that was defective. I read the reviews and ordered the shirt in XS which is my usual size in Madewell. (5'5", 115lb, 32B) Unfortunately the shirt is so cropped I can't wear it--even with my high waisted Madewell jeans, my belly button shows with my arms down. I am so disappointed because the top and shoulders fit beautifully--it just needs to be an inch or two longer. I tried pairing it over a tank top, etc. and just can't find a way to wear it that I like. Unfortunately it was final sale. :(
