Every once in a while, a spring day emerges that reminds me that winter is almost over. In Los Angeles, the clouds will part, the rain stop, and the sun will peek out, prompting me to head to my closet, ready to embrace the out-of-season weather. But I quickly remember that while I might be ready for spring, my wardrobe isn’t. Luckily, one of my favorite retailers just launched a site-wide sale, taking 25 percent off everything, including this season’s must-have styles.

It’s Madewell, you gotta grab some denim. Personally, I’m obsessed with the brand’s super wide-leg jean, which, despite just being released, is already a bestseller. Since celebs have spent over a year living in the slouchy, oversized style, I anticipate they’ll dominate next season in the flowy, laid-back look that makes it a perfect springtime staple. Shoppers note that this pair is “extremely flattering” on curvaceous and hourglass shapes, sitting “nice on the waist with ample room for… hips.”

A linen jacket is one of my favorite things to own from Madewell, and as someone who worked there and took advantage of their employee discount, I have plenty. I think it’s perfect to wear all spring long, warm enough, and can still be worn on breezy summer nights when paired with denim shorts. So during the sales, I’m looking at the brand’s recent update on its fan-favorite style, which added cargo details (including side pockets) to the classic double-breasted blazer. Since Tan France predicted that oversized suits would be one of the hottest trends of spring, I’d make sure to grab this option before it’s sold out (it will).

Denim may never go out of style, but its popularity certainly ebbs and flows, and according to fashion experts, it’s peaking this spring. Canadian tuxedos are a classic way to shake up the trend, but you could go the simpler route and choose Madewell’s Oversized Denim Shirt Dress, which is available in white and light blue (where sizes sell out fast).

Although Madewell might be best known for its denim, its leather goods are the brand’s best-kept secret. I’ll always have a soft spot for the Transport Tote, which thanks to its classic design and high-quality leather will never go out of style and will be used for years to come, but this season, I’m looking at this crossbody bag in woven leather, a style popularized by Bottega Veneta. Available in five colours, including a cheery green, it can be converted into a tote in a matter of seconds and has already been added to over 2,000 carts this week, proving that it just might be one of the hottest bags on the internet. spring.

The brand updated the classic white tee with its Side-Cinch Muscle Tee, which is now just $36. And while that might seem excessive for a tee, it’s designed with high-quality, sustainable, ultra-soft materials that, in my opinion, justify the cost (even without discount). Plus, I’m obsessed with elevated basics, which allow you to put in the same amount of effort with much more payoff because the little details transform a pair of jeans and a top into a complete look. Here, the side ruching is designed to provide a very flattering fit, cinched at the waist. While it’s on sale, you could buy it in more than one color.
