With the ease of a slipper and the put-togetherness of a pump, a good pair of mules is a wardrobe game changer. There are few other options that strike the polished-yet-comfortable balance so well, and it’s no wonder that statement-making ladies from Egyptian queens to movie stars were known to own a pair or two. Thanks to an extra layer of padding, our new mules feel even more cushy but still look just as sleek. And now we present a very specific—and admittedly silly—list of fancy-slash-comfy things to do in your fancy-slash-comfy mules.
It’s here, it’s here (!). Our curvy fit has arrived. We took classic skinnies with smoothing Magic Pockets in front and reengineered them for women with an hourglass shape—translation: if you have a booty, these jeans are for you. We chatted with our denim design expert, Aubrey, about how this style came to be and why she can’t wait for people to try ’em.
Mark Kolski never thought he’d end up with his own clothing line, creating one-of-a-kind reworked vintage gems under the moniker As Ever. Upon first moving to NYC, he worked at a store selling western wear, then at an outdoor flea market dealing vintage clothes—gaining knowledge about sourcing he still uses today. From there, he moved on to producing commercial advertising, TV and film, before renovating restaurants (check out his handiwork at Dirty Bird, which Mark swears has the best fried chicken in NYC). The renovation thing stuck, until an arm injury forced him to make a change.
Since they’re experts in all things fashion-y, fun and super-relatable, we couldn’t wait to have the team at Man Repeller take our denim for a test-drive—and as you’ll see in this video, they were totally up for the challenge. Check out the serious(ly funny) results above, then get to know the leading ladies below.
Calling all BFFs, GFs, moms, sisters—in short, the ladies we love in our lives: We want to celebrate you. To get into the spirit for our annual Gal Pal Val(entine’s) Day parties across all stores (which include schmoozing, snacking and crafting, btw), we asked a few members of Team Madewell to shout out their besties below. Get inspired and start dreaming up the cute card you’ll make for your own.
You can talk about music all you want, but at a certain point, you just want to hear it. On that note, literally, we asked our in-house music expert Lindsey to recommend something we should be listening to right now—in one sentence or less.
