Modern Tie-Front Top

Modern Tie-Front Top is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish basic This shirt has a really nice texture that is kind of hard to see in the pictures. When I ordered it I expected a basic cotton tee but the texture elevates the look of it, making it more than your average tee. I look forward to wearing it all Spring/Summer! Also, contrary to other reviewers I found that it fit TTS. I ordered my usual medium and it fit like it does in the picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got both colors, love them! I've worn them under blazers at work (if you're tall it might be too short for this) but I'm 5'3, 110 pounds (got size XS) and as long as I wear high waisted jeans, no midriff shows. Can't wait for warmer weather! The material is terricloth-like. Others have said the white is see-through but it wasn't so see-through that I felt uncomfortable wearing it to work with a nude bra. Love love love them both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought the grey tie front top and wore it for my Valentine dinner date with my high rise skinny jeans with copper 5 button fly. I wear a chunky necklace or the white, grey, black striped keffiyeh style scarf Madewell is featuring for spring. The fabric is soft and reminds me of terry cloth. I can hardly wait for warmer weather and I'll wear my top with white jeans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish This top is very soft and fits true to size. The ivory is a little sheer but the grey is perfect. Looks great with Jeans or shorts. Wish it came in more colors. Can't wait to wear in spring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic piece for spring/summer I saw this top and wasn't very thrilled about it, but after trying it on in the fitting room, I knew it was a staple piece I needed for my summer wardrobe! I love wear this top with shorts, Cali Demi pants, or the perfect summer jeans! Also looks wonderful with a maxi skirt and sandal. I purchased the grey color as the white and stripe print weren't as flattering in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and fun! I usually wear a medium in the cotton crewneck and vneck shirts and I sized up to an extra-large on this because I wanted a relaxed fit. The shirt is fabulous. I love the texture and that it's made of cotton. I got the white and it will be fun to dress up with necklaces or a bold lip. It's a very effortlessly cool style. I will be grabbing these in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality!...but SIZE UP This item's sizing depends on your personal preference. I'm consistently an XXS in almost all madewell tops (except for the shrunken shirt - XS) but I made sure to size up for this one based on reviews. I ordered everything from an XS to M. The XS fits perfectly at the shoulders and hit me right at the waist, but for it to fit loose-ish on me like it does on the model, I had to go with the M. I honestly think an L will still look great! Otherwise I love the material - its waay thicker than their basic v-neck tees and it drapes very nicely, except that it does wrinkle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute top but order up! I bought this top in the grey color this past weekend. It's really cute, has a great texture, the the tie in front makes it interesting/different from your usual t-shirts. Can be worn for work or weekend. I typically wear a size small in tops from Madewell (XS in the oversized flannels) and I bought this in a size large. In my opinion it runs very small. I needed to size up to get the right length and flow in this top (and I'm only 5'5''). If you can get the sizing right, it's a great top for spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortlessly chic and easy top! This top is just so easy to throw on for days where you don't know what to wear - so simple and cute! I've gotten several complements on it already. I usually wear a size XS in Madewell (5'5", 120 lbs) but got a small after reading the reviews. I would say it's pretty true to size; top fits loosely - exactly what I was expecting. Love and highly recommend! Material is very luxurious and soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect upgrade to a white t-shirt. I love this shirt! It is the perfect upgrade to your basic white t-shirt. It's great on its own and great layered under an open sweater, shirt or jacket. I already know it is going to be a staple in my wardrobe for a while.
