Central Shirt in Gabriel Stripe

Central Shirt in Gabriel Stripe is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility on point You can layer it over tanks and dresses. You can tie it at the waist. You can tuck it in your jeans. You can wear it like a tunic. You can wear it with your fave jean jacket or under a baller black leather one. Throw it on with a skirt for work. Pair it with dress pants and a blazer to look slick as heck. It does run large -- I ordered a small and think I could've gotten by with an XS, but hey, it's super comfy so no serious complaints here! The fabric isn't stiff -- feels like silk without the $$$ attached. It'll be your most worn item in your closet. Well, almost, because we all know their jeans are the star of the show ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, cute, chic. I will admit it: I have an addiction to the Central Shirt. This is the third one that I have bought in three years - they're just everything good in shirt form! Super soft fabric, super cute designs and very comfortable. I am 5'6" with a 34D chest and I typically range from a small to medium in Madewell tops. For this shirt I decided to go with a small. Just as an FYI, if you have the Central Shirt in Chambray then this material is thicker. If you have the Central Shirt in White then this material is thinner. I think that will affect what size you should get since it affects how the shirt will fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great essential piece I loved it so much that I bought the white and denim version. Sized down and it’s still loose but that’s what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut surprisingly well Purchased in my regular size since this is really supposed to be very loose fitting and has a bit of a cocoon shape to it. I was actually surprised at how well it hangs. I adore drapey spring/summer wear. This may become a long-wearing staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, chic piece for spring! I picked up this blouse over the weekend and love it! The fabric is soft and drapey and the cut is flattering (I'm a standard size 2/26 in most brands and and took my usual XS from Madewell in the Central Shirt). This will look great loose over leather leggings or front-tucked into jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great staple! A great classic staple. Runs a bit large so I would order down a size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Striped classic Love it. Classy, relaxed fit, effortless piece. Does snag kind of easily (more than the same shirt in solid colors) but it’s worth being a little more careful for how cute it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shirt in my closet This is hands down the best top I've ever owned the stripes are perfect, the material is a drapey material that hangs in all the right places. I said the fit is true to size, it is meant to be slightly oversized but still feminine and it is just that. For reference I am 129lbs and 5'1. I am a small in most everything and chose a small in this top. I am loving it so much I just purchased the central shirt in roberta wash today :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spring staple Great closet staple Size down as it runs very large & you won’t sacrifice length when you do. My xs fits perfectly and I still have coverage (I have a long torso and typically a S or size 6. Well made and fabric is not sheer. This was my 1st Madewell purchase and I will definitely buy again!
