Welcome to The Great Try-On. With spring officially in full swing, it’s time to ready your wardrobe, and we’re here to provide a little shopping inspiration. We got to try on some of the best spring pieces from some of your favorite brands and documented it all from our at-home dressing rooms so that you can see how they actually look IRL. We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for spring wardrobe builders that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
I’m a huge fan of elevated basics. As someone who doesn’t necessarily love to repeat an outfit, having a collection of basics I can style in different ways and mix and match with my statement pieces is key to having a smaller closet as well as endless outfit options. When I was looking to add to my basics collection, I turned to Madewell for some high-quality pieces I wanted to wear this spring. I tried on eight items, and if I’m being honest, I love every single one of them.
Madewell is known for super-flattering denim, so I had to try out the brand’s jeans. It also has collections of comfortable sets and cool sneakers, and I even scored the most adorable utility-style minidress.
