(Sponsored) For years, we’ve turned to Madewell for all our everyday essentials. From dresses and jumpsuits, to jackets and tops, to everything denim, their collections are always full of looks we love. So, today, the Cup of Jo team talks about some of their favorite pieces…

“It’s very possible that nothing in my closet gets more play than a classic jean jacket,” says Caroline. This oversized version is like something you stole from a brother or an ex-boyfriend (without the bad vibes). “It looks good with pretty much anything, but my favorite way to style it is with more denim — I can never have enough — or a floral dress, for an updated take on a ’90s grunge look.”

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved accessories for two reasons: they add personality to any outfit, and they always fit!” This snake-embossed leather camera bag is the perfect size for everyday wear. It easily fits your keys, phone, wallet, lip balm and any other essentials, without weighing you down.

Whatever the season, dresses are the best. They’re instant outfits; just throw them on, and your whole look is done. “Black is a favorite summer color for me — it feels chic and easy paired comfy sandals,” says Joanna. “This dress has such a simple, effortless shape.”

Madewell’s dress selection is always amazing, including stripes, plaid and denim.

“I’ve been excitedly watching trends the last few months as the rugby stripe returns,” says Kim. “I’m always happy in stripes, and if it’s in a bright color, that’s even better.” This tee is super soft from the very first wear, and you can never go wrong with jeans and classic canvas sneakers.

Here are some other picks (currently on sale):
