With the 25% off sale happening at Madewell, I placed a big order of Madewell summer finds to share! I found some great dresses, summer tops, and more. And if you’re shopping for a summer wardrobe, it’s the perfect time to stock up at 25% off! Let’s get into trying on clothes!
Madewell Summer Finds
For reference, I’m 5’7 1/2″ with a short torso and very long legs! I typically wear a 28/29 in jeans or a size 6/8. My bra size is a 36C, and I typically wear a size medium (or 8) top.
If you ever have any question about what size I’m wearing, check the links below each image! I list any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. (TTS= true to size!) For full details, I’ll be chatting all about quality, style, and fit in the paragraphs above each photo. Let’s go!
Button-Front Midi Dress
This is the ultimate summer dress! The material is a super-soft cotton gauze, which is perfect for the hottest of days. It has a v-neck, button-front, and a swingy, easy fit. It also comes in an olive green. The fit is relaxed, but I’m in my true size medium. For a more fitted look, you could easily size down.
Matching Crop Tank and Midi Skirt
This is the summer set of my dreams! I was a little concerned about ordering it after reading the reviews. But the main complaint was about sizing, so I ordered both pieces in a size down. And it’s perfect! The tank is oversized and wide with a button-back detail and drawstring bottom. The skirt is high rise with a wide waistband and button-front detail. I love that you can wear these pieces separately or together for a multitude of outfits. Be sure to size down in both!
Balloon Sleeve Midi Dress
This dress is such a show-stopper! I originally saw it in the window display of my local store. And while I was inside, no short of five women were talking about it!! It’s truly beautiful in person. The fabric is a chambray blue with hand-painted looking print. It has a v-neck with white button-front detail, babydoll cut, and oversized balloon sleeves. The chest area is slim-fitting with no stretch. So if you are on the bustier side, you’ll want to size up.
Short Sleeve Cardigan Set
Hello, all of the best 90’s vibes!! I love that this set that comes together is warm-weather appropriate. The tank is a slim-fitting spaghetti strap and the cardigan is also slim-fitting with short sleeves. Wear this set with jeans, shorts, and skirts! It also comes in a pale sage green and orange-toned red. It fits TTS. I’m in a medium.
I had the highest hopes for this tank, and I really do like the style. But it runs so, so oversized. I’m in a medium but would need a small or possibly even an XS. The understated ruffle, ribbed fabric, and drape-y fit are so cute. Be sure to size down 1-2!!
V-Neck Cropped Cardigan Tank
I’ve obviously been feeling the cropped cardigan look. 😂 This one doesn’t come with a tank, but I love how it looks buttoned-up! You could also wear it open paired with a tank of your own. The fit is slightly wide and boxy. I’m in a medium and love the fit. It also comes in white!
Zion Floral Tank
I ordered this tank thinking that the background color was more of a cream. But in person, it is clearly green. The pale green kind of ruined it for me! I love the print and print colors, but I’ll be sending this one back. It fits TTS.
Cropped Racerback Tank
You know by now how much I love the full-length version of this tank. I own it in five different colors! But Madewell released a cropped version this year that is perfect to pair with high-waisted jeans, skirts, shorts, and pants! This cropped version is just as good as the full length. The fit and fabric is exactly the same. But I’m excited to get to wear this one since I won’t have to tuck it in! This is especially important with skirts!
Ruffle Strap Tie-Back Dress
This is such a beautiful dress with a square neck, ruffle sleeve, and tie back. So many of the tie-back dresses out right now won’t work with a bra, but this one will! The tie covers right over your bra band! It hits at the natural waist with a ruffle bottom tier. Plus there are pockets! Such a goodie, y’all!
