Madewell finds: waffle shirt jacket, lounge set, vintage jeans

Madewell knit waffle shirt jacket perfect vintage jeans petite review

This look is a variation of one of last year’s most loved outfits, with some in-stock options for both the shirt jacket and jeans since those have since sold out. You can see this look in motion in my latest video reel, and I wanted to share some fit reviews here as well!

Since petite sizes tend to go first, here’s a few other petite new arrivals I’m eyeing.

Lounge: Cozybrushed Henley + Straight Sweatpants

This lounge set is insanely soft and comfortable, I never want to take it off! I wish I had discovered it sooner when more sizes and colors were stocked. The pants are TTS with a wide leg fit and the top runs oversized. The pants have an intended cropped length, which ends up working well for petites as a full length pant.

Here’s a few other retailers where I found these separates at: Zappos, Shopbop

Perfect Vintage Jeans

Since the grey jeans I last featured sold out in petites, Madewell sent me this pair to try. In comparison to the older style, the Perfect Vintage jeans I have on in this post are a little more tapered at the leg, and in a slightly thicker denim with a 1″ longer length. The color is very similar, so you can see grey jean outfit ideas like here with a taupe sweater + chocolate boots.

True to almost all of their Perfect Vintage style jeans, I believe these run big at the waist and sized down to a 23 Petite. These 23s fit like most of my size 24 jeans in other brands.

Grey jeans are an easy neutral that can be dressed up by adding a blazer or sweater jacket. Love the look of this cardigan with some sneakers, black booties or sling backs!

Waffle Knit Shirt Jacket

This shacket has the same cut and fit as the sweatshirt-like one I featured last year, except in a waffle texture. It’s a medium weight, drapes like a shirt, and is nice for layering underneath my double faced wool coats. Here’s how it looks with the popular A&F jeans I featured recently and sneakers:

    Hi, Jean. Are your Converse in the photo above custom? If so, would you please share the details (colors, prints, etc.) that you chose? I love how neutral these are and I’m interested in purchasing a pair. Thank you!
