This all started because I’m a longtime fan of Lisa Says Gah—I love its quirky good vibes and its cool e-commerce models, and I really love the sardine earrings I purchased last summer (which quickly rose through the ranks to reside among my all-time most-complimented accessories). When I saw that Lisa Says Gah released a collaboration with Madewell, the very next walk I took my dog on just so happened to veer in the direction of its store.

Turns out Madewell is really on one right now, and the collaboration is just the beginning. The new-arrivals section is overflowing with items designed to slip seamlessly into my wardrobe, from breezy summer office outfits to polished vacation looks. I’m talking really great woven leather bags, key linen pieces, on-trend minimalist sandals, and the kind of easy tops you’ll wear on repeat. Here are my top Madewell picks that you can shop now.

Natalie Cantell
Executive Director, Brand Studio

Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had⁠! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
