27 Outfits From Madewell’s Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook

Y'all know how I feel about Madewell. It's okay. It's not like I go into one of their stores every week, or could hold a Madewell sample sale from my own closet, or rarely go a day without wearing something with a Madewell tag on it, or could pass for a Madewell model if I…

Classic Stripes With Some Verve

You can never have too many striped shirts: they dress up, they dress down, and they are, above all, classic. I'm loving Madewell's colorful take on a classic striped long-sleeve T, which I'm already joyfully matching in my head with colorful jeans already in my closet. How can you not be happy in a plum…

One Dress, Two Ways: Madewell’s Stucco Stripe Dress

Yesterday, Julie and I wore the same dress to work. We both own Madewell's Stucco Stripe Dress -- mine is the "tobacco" color, while she has it in blue and white -- but, as you can see, we style it in completely different ways. How to get both looks, after the jump!

Your Essential T-Shirt

At the end of the day, despite having a closet full of dresses, I am a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl. And once I find a specific brand and cut that I love, I make sure to buy them in every color; that way, on days when I feel like I have "nothing to…

Alexa Chung Says Wear Stupid Shoes

"Have fun. Don’t take anything too seriously. Try a bit of irony now and again. Don’t wear anything too tight. Borrow things from your brother, boyfriend or father’s wardrobe. And wear stupid shoes!”-- model and Madewell designer Alexa Chung offers her personal style tips. Stupid shoes, check. [Fashionista]…

First Look: Alexa Chung’s New Madewell Collection Ads

Model Alexa Chung unveiled the first crop of ads for her second collaboration with hipster prep designer Madewell, and as usual, Chung looks stunning. Supposedly inspired by "girls in bands, or girls standing side of stage ... I felt like they’d be on tour so they wouldn’t mind getting cold," the ad…

Functional, Unembellished Chic Tote

A canvas bag should be relatively un-fussy compared to its leather brethren. This tote bag from the Quality Mending Co., a vintage source in NYC, doesn't need any bells, whistles, or spangles to show its chic side. Saddle-colored leather trim embellishes this tote just enough so it's both functional and fabulous. You'll want to coordinate…

Would You Wear: Velvet Shorts In Winter?

The tights-and-shorts combo in winter isn't for everyone. Personally, I've been a fan since I was a kid, but have specific requirements (heavy wool or tweed fabrics, dark colors). When I saw these Madewell by Alexa Chung shorts, I was brought back to the late '90s when crushed velvet was all the rage, and yup,…

A Pin That Never Gets Old

Madewell's Draped Chain Brooch is the illegitimate child of the multi-chain necklace and the over-the-top pin. Yet there are so many ways to wear this brooch that it will never get old. We like the idea of it pinned to the back pocket of a pencil skirt or the pocket of a blazer. It would…

Shareen Vintage To Show Up At Madewell Pop-Up

If you know vintage, you know Shareen Mitchell. The former actor and designer has stores on both coasts and a mix of odd and on-trend pieces that routinely sell out. Apparently realizing the awesomeness that is Shareen, Madewell has tapped her to stock two pop-up shops in their New York and Century City stores. All…

Hallelujah! Madewell Launches E-Commerce Site

We have sort of an obsession with Madewell at The Frisky, but we've rarely talked about the retailer because there are only a few stores nationwide. We thought it'd be wrong to tease with the product and then not deliver on buying info. But now everyone can get a taste of what we think…

Alexa Chung + Madewell: Do You Like Brands More If A Celeb Wears Them?

I thought I was above caring what labels celebrities wore. Since most of the clothes they're seen in are way out of my price range, I tend to think, "Oh, that looks cute" or "Ugh, what was she thinking?" and move on. But when a star wears something from a store that I actually sho…
