Certain seasons seem to require a bit of an accessory redux. That’s not to say you need to rid yourself of everything you’ve been loving (though we understand if your boots take a bit of backseat for a while), but a few new pieces can be subbed in for those cold-weather mainstays and feel so apropos as the days get longer and warmer. Spring is the quintessential season for this kind of renewal—it’s arguably code for “refresh”—so we asked our fearless leader, our head designer Joyce, to share with us the accessories she’s adding to her style arsenal. Getting a peek at her personal shopping list is a great place to start your own revamp, we’d say.
The key to keeping it cool: simple shapes.
Ella Fitzgerald once rightfully crooned, “Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.” And aren’t shades the season’s signature easy-does-it accessory? You throw them on and with one toss of your hair, you’ve got sun protection and the cool factor down, no problem.
So obviously we had to celebrate in the office. (Don’t the ladies of Madewell HQ look positively radiant in their Sunny Day, Drifter and Hepcat Shades?)
What isn’t so obvious? They’re wearing shimmery lip gloss—courtesy of our friends at Benefit—to match their Madewell shades. (Wait, did you know you could win a trip to Benefit’s San Francisco headquarters, a $1,000 Madewell shopping spree, a beauty makeover and lots more? Well, you could! Enter here.)
Happy National Sunglasses Day!
