Quality basics are simply essential. Everyone needs classic, well-made pieces that can be paired with anything to create a put-together look. If you're finding your closet sorely lacking in the basics department, don't fret — the Madewell sale has everything you need to fortify your foundational wardrobe at a fraction of the cost.
If you're a fan of well-cut denim, simple knits, feminine dresses, and other easy-to-wear items, you likely count yourself among Madewell's dedicated shoppers. The brand is practically a one-stop store for all things essentials, and it happens to have a major sale on right now, during which you'll score an additional 30 percent off all sale styles with code ORDERUP.
And while you'll note some remnants of Madewell's summer offerings are featured in the sale (great if you've got an upcoming beach escape), there's also a bevy of seasonally-appropriate buys that are marked super low. Fall weekend jeans? Check. Soft sweaters for daily wear? Got 'em. Elevated velvet pieces? You bet.
Snag just about any denim your heart desires at well under $100 when you shop the sale, from dark wash skinnies to distressed styles. The 10" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Lucille Wash, just $62.99 with the discount code, are ideal for wearing day to night. Style with a knit top and casual shoes for a busy day, then swap for a dark floral silk blouse and heeled booties at night.
Likewise, sweaters are in no short supply in Madewell's sale section — great news for those who've yet to stock up for the season. The brand's Wrap-Front Pullover Sweater in Coziest Yarn is so soft you'll want to live in it, which you can afford to do at only $45.49. It comes in three fall shades, from a cranberry red to a rich autumnal brown. The wrap-front design provides the perfect dose of femininity.
For a more vibrant look, select the Mockneck Pullover Sweater in Stripe, $55.65 with code ORDERUP. The slim-fit sweater, originally $88, gives off a fun '70s vibe — wear with cropped bootcut jeans and hiking-inspired boots on a brisk Sunday afternoon.
Whatever essentials your wardrobe's in need of, you're sure to find a solution among Madewell's easygoing picks. The sale has almost 500 styles to choose from, so choices won't be a problem — narrowing your basket down will.
