At Madewell headquarters, we’re all very serious about committing to our New Year’s resolutions. OK, maybe not all of them and maybe not for very long, but we do take our style oaths seriously. Check out how some key players on Team Madewell are vowing to refresh their wardrobes for 2012.
GIGI, resident tastemaker
Resolution: Play Around With Plaid.
In her words: “I’ve always been a big fan of pattern-on-pattern dressing, and I’m all about taking style risks. Plus this look is offbeat and unexpected.”
What she’s wearing: Vintage made-in-Ireland poncho, Madewell Legging Jeans and a black plaid scarf—plus some very tartan reading material.
KIN, head of all things design
Resolution: Brighten Up My Blues.
In her words: “This ensemble may not seem very extreme, but I’m a huge lover of muted chambrays and washed-out denim, so this bold blue is a new thing for me!”
What she’s wearing: Madewell Silk Mosswood Shirt and Madewell Heritage Premium High Riser Jeans in Spur Wash.
CHRISTINA, spot-on stylist
Resolution: Dress It Up.
In her words: “I’ve always leaned more toward menswear-inspired style, so I’m trying my hardest to get into dresses.”
JAC, denim designer and devotee
Resolution: Stop Skirting Skirts.
In her words: “Everyone knows I’m obsessed with denim—in fact, I was wearing a denim jacket before we took this photo. So wearing skirts is something I literally forget to do because I just love jeans to death. I’m turning over a new leaf!”
What she’s wearing: Alexa Chung for Madewell Grandma Skirt and a vintage tank.
JOYCE, most excellent accessories designer
Resolution: Get Dotty.
In her words: “I’m very much a shirt-and-jeans kind of girl and even though I love prints and patterns, I forget to incorporate them. Dots are my first choice for branching out!”
