As a chronic TikTok scroller and general fashion lover, I love seeing the latest trends emerge as much as the next girl. But when it comes to actually wearing said trends, I'm more of an admirer than a doer. I'm easily entranced by It-girls rocking low-rise jeans, platform heels, and sheer tops, but it's my personal belief that you get more bang for your buck with classic, never-out-of-style pieces. Think of your go-to t-shirts, button-downs, leather jackets, and denim. These are the pieces you can turn to time and time again to put together a chic look with zero effort, which is why my shopping strategy revolves around finding them. 

Another shopping strategy of mine? Finding classic pieces on sale. When a new season rolls around and my closet is itching for a refresh, I go digging for a good sale to fill my cart with staple pieces. I'm happy to report that I have found such a sale at one of my favorite brands, no less. I'm always shopping Madewell for quality, yet affordable pieces so when I saw the brand was having a sale on their new fall releases, I promptly freaked out. Here's the deal: From now until August 31, use code COOLDOWN for 30 percent off Madewell's fall arrivals, plus score an extra 30 percent off select sale items. This selection includes polished sweaters, staple denim, go-to fall outerwear, chic accessories, and more. I, of course, couldn't resist shopping the sale so if you're looking for a seasonal wardrobe refresh, scroll below to see all of the classic pieces I'm eyeing.
