Madewell Spring 2012: Prints and Stripes and Brights, Oh My!

This collection will make you wish that we'd skip fall and jump straight into spring.

While we're still a little burnt out from the month of Spring 2012 shows that just came to a close, this morning we were delighted to preview Madewell's offering for next season. Reminiscent of a road trip that the design team took across the country — we hear there were ghost towns and run-ins with cowboys involved — the heritage-inspired denim, mixed prints, florals, acid brights, nautical stripes, and polka dots aplenty are bound to become our wardrobe staples come spring. We were happy to see that some of our favorite trends from last season are sticking around — particularly maxi skirts, neons, brightly colored trousers, and open knits — but Madewell's expert styling inspired us to pair them in ways that we'd never even thought of!

Scroll down for some photos of the pitch-perfect collection — we're pretty sure they will make you wish we could skip over fall completely and jump right back into spring.
