You can't always tell much by a store's name. Asos, for example, no longer means "as seen on screen," and Nasty Gal's wares are less yucky than glamorous and cool. But then there's Madewell, which is pretty straightforward — it sells timeless pieces intended to last for years.
As if that wasn't reason enough to get your shop on, it's cutting an extra 40% off sale items via coupon code "EXTRA40", and all orders bag free shipping until July 25. That's the best offer we've seen from Madewell, so we've picked 10 items that will last you several seasons.
