My online shopping trick that never fails? Scrolling through new-arrivals tabs like it’s my job (because it kind of is). Once a week, I’ll scour my favorite sites, take screenshots of my top picks, and save them to a very secret Google Doc. And there’s one retailer in particular that’s a constant fixture in said confidential dossier: Madewell. I mean, have you seen the store’s fall arrivals? (I hope you read that in Chandler Bing’s voice.) The newest collection from the fashion-girl favorite features fall-ready pieces that scream my name (exhibit A—these jeans). Here are the seven new arrivals I actually have in my cart as we speak…
Classic Blue Jeans
Available in sizes 23–37.
Is there anything more classic than a good pair of blue jeans? I’ll go ahead and answer that for you… NO. This versatile cigarette-leg option satisfies my top denim criterion: Namely, it makes me feel like a sophisticated French woman (which I unfortunately am not).
While chunky sneakers and slouchy boots are some of the trendier fall shoe styles, I’m personally on the hunt for classic mules I can sneak into my rotation for days I don’t want to look like my IG “discover” feed… This Madewell option caught my eye thanks to the calf-hair texture and bold stripes. The neutral color palette makes these shoes ultra-versatile, no?
A Slouchy Cardigan
This cardigan is one of the easiest layering pieces I’ve come across as I prep my new-season wardrobe. Yes, you can layer it in with your favorite denim or leather jacket, but it also has enough detail that it can make a statement on its own.
Raw-Edge Black Jeans
Available in sizes 23–37.
I’ll be wearing these on Fridays when I’ve got serious work to finish cranking out (and plans to meet my S.O. for dinner once I finally clock out). Easy, versatile, and stylish? Win-win-win.
An Oversize Denim Jacket
A hard truth for you: It isn’t really fall in L.A. until you find a go-to denim jacket. (I’m not ashamed to admit I have more than one hanging in my closet.) This jacket’s oversize silhouette feels a bit designer, but it isn’t so eccentric I can’t wear it to a casual family gathering come Sunday night.
A Basic Bodysuit
I’m actually planning on scooping up this bodysuit in a few different colors; it’s the perfect layering piece for the colder months coming up. And once you add in gold jewelry, an oversize coat, and a pair of Madewell jeans, you’ve got the perfect fall outfit.
Wide-Leg Button-Up Jeans
Speaking of, one thing my new-arrivals research has made crystal clear? Wide-leg denim with a button fly = the king of F/W 18 denim. Any wash will do, really, but I like to stick to black for its versatility. Already imagining myself wearing these with my favorite leopard-print blouse and go-to chunky sneakers…
