The Perfect White Button Down for Summer

Madewell Central Shirt in Pure White

It’s your favorite go-with-anything, always fresh-looking white button-down shirt, but better. It’s been made summer-perfect with a slightly oversized, slouchy fit and relaxed sleeve. And, remarkably, it’s not see-through.

This cotton/ Modal blend blouse is machine washable and has a 4.5/ 5 rating with 89 rave reviews. One customer said that she already owns three and will probably be buying more so that she’s never without one. That’s serious devotion to a shirt. And reviewer Nell shared that a Madewell associate suggested this styling trick: “…unbutton halfway from the bottom up, tuck in the button tail and then overlap the other tail in the front for a cute wrapped look.” So many options.

Buying hint: most reviewers said that they sized down one size to maintain a hint of shape.
