So many really good new arrivals at Madewell right now

12

As J. Crew continues to falter its way out of bankruptcy, its scrappy younger sister just goes from strength to strength. Their slouchy tomboy aesthetic is so up my alley, starting with these laid-back vegan leather pants, which I’d wear with a  sweatshirt.

A super-cozy-looking sweater jacket in a rather excellent rusty hue.

These coveralls have nifty zipper pockets you can’t see in this picture, and a boxy-but-not-too-boxy cut.

It’s tough in a post like this for me not to want to use the word “slouchy” more than once, and I know I already used it above—and overuse it in general—but is it not the perfect descriptor for this army jacket?

This camera bag has a Clare V vibe I’m liking, and it’s got a good striped strap too.

I know nobody’s wearing a lot of blazers these days, but this boucle number also just looks like the perfect thing to throw on for walking the dog when you’ve still got sweats on and want to take things up a notch.

I dig the icy-blue hue of this cardigan, and its awesomely fuzzy texture.

I do not need another white button-down, but occasionally I see one that’s got some great little detail, and that’s how I feel about the double pockets on this shirt: very utilitarian cool. I might have to go for it.

A pretty clean-lined moto jacket at a fairly reasonable price (for leather).

A chore jacket in a Carhartt-y color but with feminine tailoring: pretty winning.

I’m a sucker for a hit of contrast on an otherwise striped tee, and this one is a pretty stellar example of that.

Just a furry, cute sherpa jacket that reminds me of far pricier ones by Sandy Liang.

I don’t just inevitably love a polka dot, but I love how they’re kind of scattered across this cool little sweatshirt.

A nicely-cut higher-waisted pair of boyfriend jeans: these might be exactly what I’ve been searching for, and I like the wash too.

    And how lovely is it that Madewell features a diversity of models? Now, to get them to add age as one of their variables…

    My 18yo loves Madewell but I’ve never bought anything for myself. Thanks to this post, the sweatshirt, striped tee (and fun sneakers) are now on their way to me. And I’ll even be able to wear them before the college kid returns to raid my closet.

    Lordy, I want I want I want! Fuzzy sweater, stripe shirt and that shirt jacket. All the “wows.” If the moto jacket is like last years it is pretty much perfect. Very soft leather.

    Wanted to add to the chorus. Kim, you are killing it (my wallet) lately!

    If you’re not already a Madewell “insider” (all it takes is signing up) you should become one because right now all that stuff is 20% off for insiders.

    Has anyone else noticed that Madewell has a color palette that they adhere to? They really skew towards rusty reds, oranges, yellows, autumnal colors. Now, I know it *is* fall in the Northeast right now, but every season they offer the same color palette. I’m not opposed to those colors, but I definitely lean more towards greens and blues, so I have a hard time finding items I would consider. (That combined with a desire for less poly/rayon more cotton/silk/linen/wool makes it even harder!)

    You’ve been on a roll! I hope you take this the right way – I may have to take a GOACA break! The t-shirt and army jacket (“slouchy” is my middle name) are sitting in my cart. I’m already picturing the jacket with the AA joggers I bought yesterday and I don’t have many long sleeved t’s, so I’m pretty sure they’ll be en route soon.

    Everything today is very wearable.
    A sweater jacket in boiled merino wool? Those words are magic to my ears.

    Great fuzzy sweater. I have been looking for one in an olive green similar to the one Kurt Cobain wore during the Nirvana Unplugged show. I’d love to see you do a fuzzy sweater round up – doesn’t matter the colors they are.

        L’envers, a Spanish knitwear company, has an abundance of fuzzy sweaters in their fall 2020 collection. I am not generally a fuzzy sweater lover, so these may be on the low fuzz end, but I think they are gorgeous. Also, expensive, but I comfort myself by saying I’m buying lifetime quality.
