Staff Picks: The Fall Denim Edition
Here at Madewell HQ we’re not shy about sharing our opinions, especially when it comes to denim. A few team members spilled about their favorite jeans—and, yep, we have a feeling you’re gonna love them too. Read on to see what we’ve been wearing on repeat.
Kristine, buyer extraordinaire
HER STYLE: Classic with a twist
THE JEANS SHE’S LOVING: The High-Rise Slim Boyjean in Cottontail Camo
WHERE SHE’LL WEAR THEM: During a fall activity like leaf peeping at Storm King or apple picking upstate!
WHY YOU NEED ’EM: They’re extra comfy because of the relaxed silhouette and stretch. Also, gotta love that camo print.
Courtney, digital marketing maven
HER STYLE: A casual mix of old and new
THE JEANS SHE’S LOVING: 10″ High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Hanna Wash
WHERE SHE’LL WEAR THEM: I’m a firm believer that you can style the right pair of jeans for just about any occasion. I could see myself wearing these anywhere from my favorite low-key watering hole, The Dead Poet, to a fancy-ish dinner party.
WHY YOU NEED ’EM: Supersoft? Check. Tons of stretch? Check. The perfect not-too-high, not-too-low rise? Also check.
Valeria, web design whiz
Lots of comfortable jeans and
lots of neutrals, guest-starring the occasional print
THE JEANS SHE’S LOVING: Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Berkeley Black: Chewed-Hem Edition
WHERE SHE’LL WEAR THEM: Everywhere—to Prospect Park with some sneaks or on a night out with a heeled sandal
WHY YOU NEED ’EM: The high waist is a must! Also, as someone who tends to gravitate towards straight-leg and skinny styles, it felt like a great starter pair to ease out of my denim comfort zone.
May, jean design genius
HER STYLE: Low-key and tomboy inspired
THE JEANS SHE’S LOVING: The Dadjean in Brenford Wash
WHERE SHE’LL WEAR THEM: The question is where won’t I wear them?
WHY YOU NEED ’EM: They look vintage but fit even better. Plus they’re easy to dress up with heels and the right earrings, or dress down with sandals and a tee.
Virginia, copy connoisseur
HER STYLE: Relaxed and denim-centric with occasional adolescent boy vibes (but seriously, I own a lot of
vintage kids’ sweaters)
THE JEANS SHE’S LOVING: Classic Straight Jeans in Jade Wash: Knee-Rip Edition
WHERE SHE’LL WEAR THEM: My new favorite Vietnamese joint in Greenpoint, Di An Di
WHY YOU NEED ’EM: They’re never-have-to-undo-the-top-button comfortable.
