Madewell New Arrival Picks - What I'm Loving

Earlier this week Madewell added new arrivals to their website...another round of really nice items for fall, and plenty to love again this time, too.

As I've mentioned many times before, I absolutely love Madewell. The casual-vibe of their clothing works well with my lifestyle, the styling on the website stays more to the understated side, the prices are often more affordable than a lot of the retailers offering similar styles, and I love that they always offer Free Shipping on ALL orders, too. The quality has been good on all the items I have ordered, and the pieces are all holding up very well so far. (I've shared pics of me wearing a couple of the jackets on my Instagram.)

If you haven't ever ordered from Madewell, you should definitely consider giving them a try...I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how much you like them, too. Click here to check out the new arrivals, and be sure to take a peek at my personal picks below. :)

What I'm Loving...

*Silk Shirtdress in Newsprint Floral - love the pretty floral pattern, and the length is good, too. Granted, this one would probably work better for summer, but it could be worn into fall with a cardigan, jean jacket, or leather jacket.

*Loopweave Sweatshirt Dress - nice color and pattern...too short for me to wear as a dress, but I would pair it with leggings or jeans and wear it as a tunic.

*Flannel Boyshirt in Barlow Plaid - love the colors on this one, and as I mentioned here, I am currently on the lookout for flannel shirts to keep me warm this fall, and this one may just make it on to my wishlist.

*Flannel Oversized Boyshirt in Bainbridge Plaid - another one with great colors, and I really like the oversize fit, too.

*The Perfect Tunic in Cotton Camo - nice to see a new silhouette in the camo print, and I love tunics.

*Silk Newsprint Floral Top - here's that pretty floral print again. Love the feminine pleated ruffle on the front, too.


*Scoopneck Roster Tee - such pretty colors, love the longer length, and the fabric is super comfy, too.

*Crop Tee in Stripe - this could be really cute worn over a long-sleeve tee or turtleneck.


*Firelight Marled Pullover - especially like the marled flax colorway.

*Uphill Pullover - yes please!!!

*Sessùn™ Nightjam Pants - love the color, and they look so incredibly comfortable.

*Plaid Cinch Vest - this was one of my picks for the new arrivals 2 weeks ago, but it is just so chic, and one of my absolute favorite pieces on the website right now, so I'm sharing it again this time.

*Cadet Blazer - same as above...love this!

*The Griffin Boot - love the silhouette, and the heel height is doable, too.

*Leather Collar Stud Cuff - the dark cabernet color is so lovely...

*Shimmerchain Necklace - perfect way to mix your metals.

*Interleague Tartan Scarf - yes please!!!

*1937 Varsity Striped Ankle Socks - love the color combinations.

What are your thoughts on the new arrivals? Do you have your eye on anything in particular? Please do share...I always love hearing from you! :)

  1. Hello! I am hoping you can assist me with sizing at Madewell. I have only ordered their shrunken shirts and ordered a medium as I really did not want them that shrunken. I am wondering if you think I should consider a medium in the flannel as I do not want them to be fitted. The descriptions mention oversized or something similar so the fit I am looking for may be the actual way they are designed. I plan to order the buffalo check, the red and blue plaid, and the plaid Penfield jacket in quilted flannel. Thank you very much for any assistance you may be able to offer based on your experiences.

    In a recent post I mentioned Brooks Brothers to you. I received their two Red Fleece flannel shirts yesterday and I am returning one of them. The red-navy flannel shirt is very sharp in focus while on my computer it appeared that vertical sections were faded. Anyway, it was not what I was expecting so back it goes. ALso, you may recall I loved their RF shirts for the details. Well, I ordered the blue stripe long sleeve shirt and it had none of the details that my others have. I was disappointed as it was always nice to turn up the cuff and have grosgrain ribbon or a different but coordinating fabric there, etc. I have two yet to arrive as they are on backorder. I hope they do not disappoint. I love their Black Fleece shirts so I am going to order two or three of those to make up for the RF shirts not working. I think I will also give one of the BF jackets a try during the next sale.

    Thank you for reading and any thoughts about fit at Madewell.

    1. Hello anon! I would be more than happy to try to help you out with the sizing at Madewell. :) I normally wear an XSmall or Small in the shirts at Madewell, depending on the cut of the particular item, and I am an XSmall at J.Crew, sometimes an XXSmall. When the description at Madewell says oversized, I normally tend to go with the smaller of my two sizes, and that has worked out well so far. However, each of the garments can differ in their individual measurements, so I usually always contact my VPS or a customer service rep to get measurements on the item I am considering. This has helped me a lot in making sure I get the correct size the first time around.

      You know that the Buffalo check shirt is on my wishlist, and I actually have the size XSmall in my shopping cart waiting for me to pull the trigger (hopefully in the near future). However, before I do commit to the purchase, I am going to check with my VPS to get measurements for both the XSmall and Small, since like you, I want a roomier fit, and want to see whether or not I need to go with the larger of the two sizes. I'm going to email him now, and I will also ask for the measurements for the size Medium and post them here when I hear back.

      I have not yet ordered any of the Penfield items, but that shirt jacket is also on my wishlist. It's the one in white check, correct? I'm also going to email for measurements on that one and will post here once I get them, as well. HTH!

    2. Ok, so I just received measurements for all items except the Penfield jacket. They do not get the measurements for 3rd party items, but stated that it is supposed to run TTS. I personally will go with the size small on that one I think, since I want to be able to layer underneath it.

      Here are the measurements that they did have:

      Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Albion Plaid (B0949)

      Across shoulder: 15.25"
      Chest circumference: 37.75"

      S
      Across shoulder: 15.75"
      Chest circumference: 39.75"
      Waist circumference: 40.75"
      Front body length: 28"

      M
      Across shoulder: 16.25"
      Chest circumference: 41.75"
      Waist circumference: 42.75"
      Front body length: 28.5"

      Flannel Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Buffalo Check (B0714)

      XS
      Across shoulder: 15.25"

      I hope this will help you in choosing which size to go with. Let me know what you decide, and thank you also for the updates on the BB shirts! :)

    3. Well, twice I have replied and it has been eaten! To keep it short now I just want to thank you so very, very much for your assistance in ordering the shirts from Madewell. I ordered the buffalo check and the red and blue plaid flannel. I was not sure about the Penfield shirt jacket as I was concerned about the nylon lining. I decided to order Medium although I am sure they will swallow me. Hopefully they will style the way I want them to.

      Thanks again so much!
