As fashion designers go, Madewell’s Somsack Sikhounmuong is about as nice as they come (not to mention that she positively oozes style). In celebration of the brand opening its newest store on Manhattan’s Upper East Side this week, we had some fun with fashion fill-in-the-blanks as she shares her summer styling tricks.
This summer, I hope the Glamour reader is experimenting with… the fit and rise of her jeans. We think a straight-leg and higher-rise feels new for summer.
Madewell jeans, $118
The Madewell girl’s summer uniform would definitely include… our sightseer sandals and a denim jacket for an over-air-conditioned office. Brrr!
Madewell jean jacket, $118, and sandals, $60
When dressing for a summer party, it’s most important to… not overthink it and never forget to bring your host a gift.
I’d advise styling overalls… dressed-up, with heels and a blazer.
Madewell overalls, $148
The best multipurpose products for summer are… the Transport tote for the city, beach, and everywhere in between, and the navigation app Waze to predict and avoid Friday-afternoon traffic. No one wants to start their weekend sitting on the freeway.
Madewell tote, $168
For summer weddings, you can never go wrong with… the Piazza maxidress and a simple leather pouch as an evening bag.
Madewell maxi dress, $168, and clutch, $78
