Swimming season has arrived—and new timeless, supercute suits from the swimwear experts at Solid & Striped have us ready to dive right in. Check out our list of favorite places to take a dip across the country (and apologies in advance if we’re blowing up anyone’s secret spot).
Aside from actually booking a plane ticket and heading somewhere sunny, flipping through our spring lookbook is the next best thing to warm us up during the New York winters here at Madewell HQ. We can’t wait to get our hands on all the retro-cool, wallpaper-inspired prints, looks-like-vintage denim everything and breezy throw-on-and-go dresses. In the meantime, we chatted with our head designer, Joyce, to learn about her favorite pieces and where she imagines wearing the collection.
We’re all about passionate women who are making it happen. Like Linda Bui—cosmetic-supply-chain guru slash ceramist slash master of plants—who is doing just that. We spent a day with her (and her pup, Quincy) in Williamsburg as she tried on some of our favorite summer dresses and talked creative inspiration, true-crime podcasts and otherworldly flowers, among other things.
Magazine spreads of ’90s supermodels, French New Wave movies you’ve watched a million times—vintage looks are always helpful for current wardrobe inspiration. Lately we’ve been looking to a less likely style icon: dads. In the ’80s. Yep, you read that right. Just hear us out.
As promised, we’re back with more travel-savvy advice and envy-inducing photos from a few of our friends who recently stayed at the new Hotel San Cristóbal in Todos Santos, Mexico. Discover the dos (and some don’ts) they swear by, scratch that let’s-get-out-of-here itch and find out how you can score a beach vacay of your own.
Three days of continuous sunshine and good vibes, a couple too many orders of guac and ceviche, maybe a million cacti—our wish-we-never-left trip to Todos Santos, Mexico, where we shot our summer collection, by the numbers.
