You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Earlier this year, the folks behind Madewell launched Alex Mill, an elevated-but-affordable-basics line that consisted of a few vintage-inspired tees, knits, and a utility-style jumpsuit that quickly sold out online. Since then, the brand has produced a few more womenswear pieces, like twill pants and not-too-fussy button-ups. And a lot of them are 40 percent off at Nordstrom right now — including the newest version of that jumpsuit, in both olive and pink. So if history tells us anything, don’t dillydally.
