I'm Predicting Madewell's Next 24 Cult-Favorite Pieces

Do you ever get frustrated while scrolling endlessly through your favorite retailers searching for your next fashion purchase? Considering that this is part of my job description, allow me to do the work for you. You might remember that I've already broken down my predictions for Nordstrom's and H&M's next big things, and now, it's time to turn the spotlight on another one of our readers' favorite places to shop: Madewell. 

As I mentioned in a previous story, I started wearing Madewell long before I ever became a fashion editor—back when I could still get that coveted student discount. I might have expanded my brand repertoire since then, but I still come back to Madewell for, uh, well-made pieces at reasonable prices. Below, I'm predicting the items that will be Madewell's next cult-favorite pieces—aka the items that are sure to rack up plenty of great reviews on their way to selling out. 


I've always loved a frilly white blouse, which is why I named it one of the five summer trends you won't regret in 10 years.

It's all in the details. I love this side-tie detail and swingy A-line shape of this tank. 

A black tank top is one of the most versatile pieces you could own. 

Take notes: Yellow looks fantastic paired with lilac.

If you've been staying at home more than ever, might I suggest a cute pair of socks to liven up your WFH outfits?

A bandana is particularly helpful now that many cities have face-covering rules. 

These sweet earrings look more expensive than they really are.

T-shirt dresses were a smart invention if you ask me. 

Skirts and Shorts



I love how this cheery skirt is paired with a simple black tank top. 

Denim shorts are pretty much a prerequisite this time of year. Wear them with sneakers, sandals, or flip-flops. 

I love how these printed shorts are paired with a tucked-in tank top. 

These shorts are much more polished than denim cutoffs. 

If ultra-short shorts aren't for you, perhaps these longer versions will be perfect.
