I Found the #1 Summer Top on Madewell Right Now (and It's $35)

One of the perks of spending countless hours online for work is that I can spot new gems the moment they arrive on a retailer's website. Every once in a while, something stops me in my tracks while scrolling—something that truly stands out from the pack, is well-priced, and sets off sellout-worthy alarm bells in my mind. And that, my friends, leads me to my favorite Madewell item.

Madewell's Gingham Bow-Front Tee, currently on sale for $35, does what very few brands have done for me lately: Convince me that I need another T-shirt. For starters, the gingham pattern aligns with one of the biggest summer print trends right now. But of course, one look at this top and you'll know what's the best details: the cute bows down the middle. Scroll down to shop the T-shirt that stopped me in my tracks as well as my other Madewell picks.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
