spring forward with new clothes.

There's a lot of reasons we love Madewell, but above all, it's the label's ability to compromise. Each season the brand  manages to strike a balance between the fleeting tendency of trends and the drab world of basics. 

Fortunately, their upcoming spring collection is no exception.

Adding a feminine touch to last season's obsession with geek-chic, the lookbook boasts everything from coral khaki shorts, to army green linens, and even a floral-print, pleated mini skirt.

And, okay fine, they've got some new bags that may look a lot like Proenza Schouler's PS1. They do have a trendy rep to maintain, after all.
