    29 Things From Madewell That Reviewers Truly Love

    From "shorter-alls" to their beloved oversized leather tote, there are so many beautiful items in here you just might want to add to your wardrobe.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. Short overalls you can layer with your fave tee or a cropped tank for a casual but cool outfit option.

    Promising review: "Love these shorteralls (yeah, I said it) so much!! I own them in black as well and they are wonderful for WFH, light yard work, lounging, online shopping, virtual dance parties, etc! I am 5-foot-6 and about140 lbs and the medium fits perfectly. A little loose for that perfectly relaxed look. Another great purchase!" —derainapants

    Price: $118 (available in sizes 2XS–XL)

    2. Pull-on cropped pants that'll give you the look of wearing structured denim but the feel of a lazy Sunday.

    Promising review: "I honestly need to buy more of these types of pants from Madewell because they’re so comfy and cute. I’m 5-foot-3 and 112 lbs, and I got a size XS but probably could’ve sized down. For me, the pants hit my ankles instead of a crop because I’m shorter but it still looks great! The color of the pants is also more saturated than in the picture, but I also like it better that way." —nd96

    Price: $64.60 (originally $75, available in sizes 2XS–XL and 2X)

    3. Loafer mules you'll likely refer to as your "adult shoe" since they'll make all of your outfits look more refined.

    mahogany loafers with an open back and a slightly pointed toe

    OK, so maybe *I* have these and refer to them as my "big girl shoes." What can I say? They make me feel like an adult!

    Promising review: "So, I recently purchased the loafer version and sadly they didn’t work out for me. But then, Madewell came out with the mule and I immediately ran to go purchase. This shoe is super comfortable and incredibly stylish. It upgrades your outfit to a whole different level. I’ve worn these babies everywhere and have gotten loads of compliments on them! If you’re looking for a shoe that gives you a classic look of a loafer but the convenience and comfortability of a slipper, look no further because this is it." —Lyss620

    Price: $128 (available in sizes 5–11 and two styles)

    4. A quilted cotton jacket that'll be great for those one-off chilly summer nights and then likely become your favorite accessory in the fall.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this jacket. It’s light enough that it can be worn in the spring and summer and with a hoodie or thick sweater, it’s a super cute look for the fall and winter. It’s more of a true to size jacket. It’s not form fitting, but the shoulders would’ve been too tight if I sized down and if I had sized up I definitely would’ve been swimming in it. I’m 5-foot-5 and 135–140 lbs and the small fit perfectly for me. This is also the perfect pink/berry color. Looks good on all skin tones. Please make more colors!!! (And maybe even a longer coat edition??)" —DJcaroline

    Price: $124.99 (originally $168, available in sizes M, XL, 2X–3X)

    5. High-rise white skinny jeans you've probably been hesitant to buy in fear of staining them, but it's about time you take a fashion risk!

    a model wearing the white high-waisted jeans

    Promising review: "These jeans are comfortable. Not see-through, they aren't hard denim. They are soft and move with you but not stretchy to the point at the end of the day you have to keep pulling them up. These are definitely a nice spring, a summer staple." —lasimmons

    Price: $128 (available in sizes 23–37 and petite, regular, and tall lengths)

    6. An oversized pale lilac denim jacket that'll make for the perfect canvas to apply all of those quirky iron-on patches you've been saving.

    a model wearing the pastel lilac jacket

    Promising review: "I purchased this jacket solely for its unique color. In person it’s a delicate, soft pink and the quality did not disappoint. I’m 5-feet tall, 125 lbs, and the XS is very flattering and fits me well. It’s perfect for a brisk, spring day. :)" —Nathley

    Price: $109.99 (originally $142, available in sizes XS–XL)

    7. Madewell's Transport tote, which'll give you enough room to stow away all of the weird things you somehow manage to carry in your daily purse. Bed Bath & Beyond coupon from 2011? Check. Pen from that hotel you stayed in once? Yep, it'll fit.

    I have this bag and it is one of my fondest possessions. It truly only gets better with time as the leather becomes softer and more worn-in. It's nice that it has an open top, making it easy to throw anything and everything in it. I also appreciate the large front pocket on the front and the smaller one along the inside lining.

    Promising review: "I've had this bag for about four years. I've carried it pretty much every day filled with lots of heavy law books. I thought it would eventually break because the straps do look thin, but it hasn't even gotten close. Still looks amazing and sturdy as ever. Will probably buy another one in a new color sometime soon. I highly recommend!!!" —LBF22

    Price: $168 (available in four colors and with or without personalzation, not part of the sale)

    8. A vintage-styled striped tee that'll add a fun pop of color to your standard jeans-and-a-T-shirt uniform.

    a model in a tshirt with red, light blue, dark blue, and yellow horizontal stripes

    Promising review: "This tee is so soft and fits perfectly. Little on the long side, but still a great tee. Definitely would purchase another in another color." —KTX2020

    Price: $19.99 (originally $35, available in sizes 2XS–XL)

    9. A two-pack of stone hair pins, guaranteed to leave you with actual heart-eyes each time you wear them.

    two gold hair pins: one has three hearts on it in a mixture of colored stones while the other has a single heart

    Promising review: "I bought these on a whim and absolutely love them! They are very cute and add a little something to an outfit." —MissHoneyBee

    Price: $12.99 (originally $16.99)

    10. A raw hem black denim skirt you'll love wearing with a tucked graphic tee for an edgy, easy-to-wear look.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Madewell

    I have this skirt (as seen in the pic above) and loved having a cuter option to replace my dreaded denim shorts. It has a lot of stretch to it which is great when layering it over a tank or T-shirt *and* for sitting — no one likes when a waistband digs into them.

    Promising review "This skirt is perfect! It's not too short or too long; it's the perfect length. It's great for any season and can go with so many different tops. I have so many pairs of Madewell jeans, but this is the first Madewell skirt I've bought. Madewell denim does it again!" —AA95

    Price: $54.99 (originally $79.50, available in sizes 26–32)

    11. Black suede sandals that'll become a treasured member of your basic wardrobe — with a reasonable heel height and sexy straps, you'll want to wear 'em every chance you get.

    black strappy suede sandals with a 3.5 inch heel

    Promising review: "These heels were perfect for a formal event. I was told by the sales associate they have a built in comfort sole — most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn! (I’m not a high-heel kind of girl either). I love how the straps have kind of a '90s vibe. They run true to size to slightly small — I wear a 6 or 6.5 in heels or flats and took a 6.5 in these. Highly recommend!" —Katherine8787

    Price: $69.99 (originally $138, available in sizes 6–10)

    12. A tie-dye shrunken tee you might as well buy and save yourself the headache of attempting to DIY this look on shirts you already own (your roommates will thank you).

    a model wearing the tie-dye tee which has a swirl of purple, pink, orange, yellow, and blue throughout it

    Promising review: "Love the colors and the tie dye. I sized up to a M from a S and glad I did. Fit is perfect, I didn’t want too much of a shrunken look. Soft material and looks great with denim." —Jamie0419

    Price: $49.50 (originally $55, available in sizes 2XS–XL)

    13. Curvy high-rise skinny crop jeans for anyone who has been looking to replace the pair they've had since high school that have holes in them (and not the trendy kind).

    a model wearing medium blue ankle cropped jeans

    BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan is *obsessed* with her curvy Madewell jeans, so feel free to see all the insight she has to give about them in her full review.

    Promising review: "I love these jeans so much! I've been feeling down about my body during quarantine. I ordered these jeans, put them on, and VOILA — perfect for my body. I feel like a curvy goddess. I'm a classic pear shape and carry most of my weight in my hips/thighs. I'm 5-foot-6, 136 pounds and I ordered the 29. Its perfect — it actually FITS my waist and makes it look small and flawless. It comfortably fits my thighs/butt and if anything makes my butt look juicer than it actually is. And to top it all off the pants fit my calves/ankles and aren't too big in that area. These jeans are truly perfect and have made me feel so good. " —Neda94

    Price: $128 (available in sizes 23–37 and in petite, regular, and tall lengths)

    14. Colorful slide sandals you can count on to match every outfit you own — no more decision making when it comes to your shoes for the day!

    slip on sandals with two bands that go around the foot, each band has a strip of pink, red, orange, pink yellow, and blue

    Promising review: "These sandals are great! So comfortable and really cute. The rainbow color isn't super bright, it's very tasteful. These are true to size and guess what? They don't make a flip-flop sound when you walk so you can wear them to work! I love mine and plan to buy these in different colors." —IHeartMadewell

    Price: $98 (available in sizes 5–11 and three styles)

    15. A baby blue and white striped top with ruffles on the sleeves and neckline for a playful addition to your closet.

    a model in the top that has vertical stripes down the middle and horizontal towards the top

    Promising review: "I loved the style and versatility of this top online and ordered since it was on sale, but I was worried that it would be see-through where I'd have to wear a camisole underneath. However, when the shirt came in the mail, it is solid! Breathable, light, beautifully-dyed, but definitely not see-through!" —nat003

    Price: $54.99 (originally $88, available in sizes 2XS–XL)

    16. A striped bikini top and bottom inspired by the '90s you'll look *so* cute posing in for your next Instagram post.

    a model wearing a textured burgundy bandeau bikini top with white vertical stripes and matching bottoms

    Promising review: "I bought this hoping that I could wear it as a bandeau — and I was in luck! I didn’t think the shape as shown would look great on my frame so I took off the removable tie and wear it as a straight across strapless bandeau! The ribbed fabric is thick enough that no padding is needed. I am fairly small chested so this might not work as well for larger chests. This is currently my favorite swimsuit!" —Mwessel

    Price: $19.99 for the top (originally $49.50, available in sizes 2XS and 3X), $29.99 for the bottoms (originally $45, available in sizes 2XS–2XL and 2X–3X)

    17. A chambray button-down shirt, a must-have timeless wardrobe staple you'll likely wear for years to come.

    a model in medium blue jeans wearing a light wash longe sleeve chambray shirt with a collar and white buttons

    Promising review: "Love this shirt!!! I might have sized down had I tried it on in store, but I'm actually happy I didn't! I love it a little big. It's the perfect shirt to toss on over another if it's a little chilly or to wear by itself. I prefer to tie up the bottom when I do that! Love love love!" —Carolann92

    Price: $64.60 (originally $72, available in sizes 2XS–L)

    18. A block heel sandal that'll look amazing with jeans or a dress — a versatile shoe you'll have absolutely no regrets about treating yourself to.

    tan heels with criss-crossed straps and a chunky wooden block heel

    I have these beauties as well (can you tell I spend a lottttt of money at Madewell?) and they've been my go-to since I purchased them over a year ago. I had a foot injury that makes it difficult to wear heels, but these are fit with "MWL Cloudlift Lite padding" which makes them extra cushy and comfortable. I can wear em' for hours!

    Promising review: "These are going to sell out, I imagine. They are SO cute. I opened the box and the wonderful smell of leather awaited me. The heel is just what I wanted...enough for cuteness but not so tall that my feet will get tired wearing them all day. They have the perfect amount of 'strappiness' and stay on easily enough while walking. I'm glad I snagged a pair before they do sell out. If you're on the fence about them, give them a try! They are going to go with many outfits for years to come." —stylegirl100

    Price: $114.50 (originally $128, available in sizes 5–11)

    19. An eyelet mini dress you'll look like an actual angel while wearing (joke's on everyone else when they discover your true colors, hehe).

    a model wearing a white short-sleeved eyelet dress with a thin rope belt, ends mid thigh

    Promising review: "At first, I thought the dress had a weird fit but it actually works for my petite frame. I am 5-foot-2 but the dress still hits around my knees. I got a regular 0 size. So, for taller ladies, this might be a little short. The fabric is cotton and lightweight so it is perfect for summer. I also like the sleeves. They are not really puffy. It comes with a thin belt but it could've been OK without it. Overall, it is really cute and lightweight summer dress. Hope the pandemic will be over soon so I can get this baby out more often." —tribeca0722

    Price: $108.50 (originally $128, available in sizes 00–24 and petite and regular lengths)

    20. A basic white tee embroidered with a seashell so your outfit will say "it's summertime, baby!" even if you're just hangin' out at home binge-watching Netflix.

    a model wearing the t-shirt with the embroidered shell covering the majority of the front

    Promising review: "I love how the T-shirt fits, it’s boxy and loose. Has a chill feel to it while still looking cute and hip. It is white however isn’t see through which I like since there is no need for an undershirt!" —Dragonfly93

    Price: $39.50 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL)

    21. A short-sleeve jumpsuit that'll help create the illusion you have endless long legs like Gigi Hadid (goals, amiright?).

    a model wearing the color-blocked jump suit with a darker salmon bottom and a pale pink top

    Promising review: "I often struggle to find a jumpsuit that fits me right. I took my chances on this one, and I absolutely love it! The elastic/cinched waist with the belt really help to accentuate my curves in a flattering way. I'm 5-foot-5, so the jumpsuit doesn't have the cropped fit, as shown on the model, but I like the full-length look regardless. The colors contrast so beautifully and I love the button details. I would absolutely recommend!" —MOTU

    Price: $89.99 (originally $148, available in sizes XS–M, XL)

    22. Biker shorts inspired by Madewell's stretchy skinny jeans, so you can continue to enjoy the look feel of your fave denim without fear of sweating all day.

    a model wearing a floral tank top with the black denim cut offs, they have a raw edge hem and end mid-thigh

    Promising review: "I loved these shorts, but was nervous to buy them because bike shorts can be hard to fit right. I have a pear shape, and was surprised to see how well they fit my body! They’re super hip, a little stretchy, and look great in different styles. Definitely recommend!" —Liv420

    Price: $64.50 (available in sizes 23–32)

    23. A sherpa cocoon coat you'll pat yourself on the back for buying now when the colder weather rolls around again and you discover you're already prepared (for once!).

    a model in a grey sherpa coat with two big pockets on either side and an open front

    Promising review: "I love that this coat is like wearing a blanket, but looks sharp and keeps its sleek lines so you instantly look pulled together (not rolled-out-of-bed)! Love the minimal lines and the sweatshirt cuffs to keep the snow out and gloves snug in the coming months. Have had lots of compliments already!" —OliveD

    Price: $129.99 (originally $160, available in sizes M–2XL)

    24. Oversized tortoise shell sunglasses with gray lenses and UV protection that'll keep your peepers safe and your style *on point* all summer.

    the sunglasses

    Promising review: "I find these super flattering and a great neutral shade for summer. These are definitely my new go-to pair! The brown is more subtle than what is shown in the picture. They are very solid and comfortable!" —meg1990

    Price: $65

    25. An A-line mini skirt with buttons all down the front to add a little extra *somethin' somethin'* to a denim classic.

    a model wearing the medium wash denim skirt

    Promising review: "I love, love this skirt! It is maybe one of my favorite Madewell skirts yet — and I have a lot of them! The denim feels of nice quality and the medium wash is perfect (please make denim shorts in this wash!). The stitching even includes discrete slip pockets, which I think is a nice plus." —Abby109

    Price: $49.99 (originally $89.50, available in sizes 23–33)

    26. Chunky espadrille Soludos sandals that'll take your summer footwear to *new heights*.

    espadrille sandals with a white sole, tan bottom, a dark tan ankle strap, and white loop for the front of the foot

    Promising review: "So happy with the fit and style of these sandals. Great quality and extremely comfortable. Neutral and versatile, I will be enjoying these all summer. Highly recommend!" —colleen39

    Price: $129 (available in sizes 5–11, not part of the sale)

    27. A linen blend wrap midi dress featuring tortoise shell buttons and a darling little' slit so you can show off a lil' leg this season.

    a model wearing the off-white dress

    Promising review: "I immediately was drawn to this dress, tried to wait it out, but eventually caved— definitely a great decision. The dress is beautiful as depicted. Comfort scale, love it. Soft and light weight without being too see through. I was wearing blue underwear when I tried it on (similar to cobalt blue), and I could just barely make them out under the dress." —RunLaola

    Price: $138 (available in sizes 00–24)

    28. A long-sleeve cotton crew neck you'll wish came in 20 different colors because it'll look so lovely with all of your shorts, skirts, and leggings.

    a model wearing the white long sleeve top that has thin burnt orange horizontal stripes throughout with a velvet burnt orange skirt

    Promising review: "This shirt is so cute and comfy. I find myself wearing it all the time and even bought a few more of Madewell's long sleeves. I normally wear a small but sized up for this one because it ran a touch tight." —HayKite

    Price: $24.99 (originally $32, available in sizes 2XS–2XL)

    29. And a straw hat you'll be able to easily toss into your bag — you never know when you'll need a chic accessory to also protect your precious skin from the sun!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Madewell

    I was never into hats (I feel like my face is too round!) but my husband insisted I get one before we ventured to Saratoga Race Track a few years ago. I gave it a try and surprisingly loved it! It prevented me from getting one of my typical sunburns, and because it's unstructured it was easy to fold up into my tote bag when I didn't want to wear it.

    Promising review: "This hat is great for any casual summer outfit. It's not a big, floppy brim so it works with jeans, etc. And it's a larger brim than a fedora, so there is actual sun coverage." —Alinta

    Price: $19.99+ (available in S/M–M/L sizing and four styles)

    Me, trying to rationalize to myself I actually should splurge on a few of these items:
