New Style Instore and Online now – Vicky Top!

We’ve been super busy around here lately, making lots of new styles and shapes – as well as our good old favourite classics too! New to the racks is the ‘Vicky Top’.
We have had a lot of people expressing their love for a good v-neck top lately, so we’ve created Vicky, a lovely feature v-neck with a distinctly flattering cut and small capped sleeve. Part of our everyday classics range, she will be your new staple to be worn with our fun denim skirts, or your favourite pair of jeans. She is sure to be pulled out on occasions when you want to feel comfy but wear something a little bit fun! Perhaps on this Easter long weekend!
The Vicky features a blunt v-neck front which ends at an interesting line (not your usual point), while being flattering on any bust line, as well as being a great fit due to the bust darts. Her neckline is also perfect for modesty and warmth in winter. The small cap sleeve is perfect for layering under or over the top. She’s available in three fun prints and a super wearable sheer navy polkadot voile.
Team back with your favourite Made590 skirt, our favourites are the Sunset, Kylie, Kelly and Bonnie. Treat this little top as a basic piece and wear it everywhere! Also a great tran-seasonal piece as this is perfect for your summer/autumn wardrobe with a versatile capped sleeve length that can be layered with our basic long sleeves (this will create a lovely little triangle of colour at the neckline), but easy enough to add to your winter layers with a cardigan over the top. Interesting necklines also look fantastic under suits and jackets, perfect for dressing up a boring work day.
SIZING: Available in sizes XS-L

Easter Trading Hours!

We love Easter time! It is a few days to spend time with your family and friends, hunt for chocolate and make the most of everything rabbit related in the shops! It really is the cutest holiday of the year!
Our trading hours are slightly different this weekend. But don’t be sad, because our online store’s doors are always wide open, you don’t even have to get out of bed to shop at made590 if you don’t want to!
We hope you all have a wonderful and safe Easter weekend – we will be making ourselves sick on chocolate and hot cross buns!

New Style – Gladys Dress Instore and Online Now!

Gladys is a cute new shape we’ve made as a no fuss, simple basic we love to throw on for weekend fun. Stretchy, fun fabrics with interesting textures and a “wow” factor we’ve sourced especially for this style. Part of our classic range, this piece is a straight forward winner! As easy to wear as our Penelope dress and as comfy as a sweater dress, this is the cool but effortless dress you can wear to a meeting, a lunch function or just day to day with winter layers.
The Gladys features a seamless front panel with bust darts, side pockets (of course!!) and lots of room in the hips for the fabric to hang smoothly. Gladys’ past the elbow length sleeve is perfect for the cooler months and for layering with coats and cardigans in the dead of winter. She’s perfect for a smart/casual look in the office or casual weekend wear.
Team the Gladys dress back with coloured or textured tights, knee high boots or even just a pair of ankle boots and bare legs! Add a big stack of bangles or a couple of bright chunky necklaces to make the colours in the prints pop. Gladys is a great tran-seasonal piece as this is perfect for your summer/autumn wardrobe with the mid sleeve detail, but she’s also easy enough to add your winter layers to with a basic long sleeve underneath or a cardigan over the top.

New Style Baby Bonnie Skirt Instore and Online Now!

You know when we really love a style around these parts when we run it in two lengths! The Baby Bonnie skirt is the little sister of Bonnie, the exact same perfect cut, but around 5cm shorter (plus it sounds a whole lot cuter, right?). Part of our Golden Apple range, she is launching in a range of amazing fabrics, including metallic linens, canvas, liberty lawn and fun kitschy cotton prints. We’ve saved the best bits for Baby Bonnieq!
FEATURES: Baby Bonnie is the same flattering cut, with less length going into winter so you can wear her with tights and boots and have just the right amount of leg showing! It’s also an ideal length for the shorter gals of the world (like a few of the made590 ladies!). We love the way the hemline kicks out slightly where the lovely reinforced band sits around the bottom, creating a structured but fun cut which will be versatile with a lot of our tops and basics. The length (similar to a Kelly or Kylie skirt) will be long enough for summer, but perfect in winter if you want to wear knee high boots. The same cute pocket placket detail will break up busy patterns, and the flattering pleats will give you an ideal a-line silhouette back and front. Belt loops complete this skirt giving you the option of tucking in your favourite top and belting to dress it up if you wish.
HOW TO WEAR: Wear this little lady with fitted tops (such as our flutter tee, autumn long sleeves and Rizzo tee) tucked into the waistband and your favourite belt to finish, or with a blousy top such as the Ginny, Felicity or three leaf for a more relaxed look. You could wear bare legs and mid calf boots, our metallic sneakers with patterned socks or throw on some sandals while summer sticks around. Remember the Baby Bonnie is a slightly shorter length, so will be really versatile with many shoe combos and layers too. We are looking forward to wearing ours under warm coats, with chunky scarves and simple tops this winter.

Libby Shirts Instore and Online Now!

A new addition to the Made590 family! Libby is apart of our Golden Apple Range, where we use our most favourite fabrics. She’s the second addition to the shirt family, so if you love our popular ‘Shirley Shirt’ you’ll be sure to love Libby. We were inspired by the Hawaiian tea-timer shirts of the 1950’s when designing Libby, and she’s a cute new piece to add to your made590 year-round wardrobe.
The features of the new Libby Shirt include two front pockets on the bottom of the shirt with an asymmetrical cut and two side splits on either side for comfort around the hips. A mandarin collar that is designed to either sit up-right, or to be turned down at the neck like a petite shirt collar depending on your style and preference. She has a flat pleat in the centre back and a yoke detail similar to the Shirley Shirt – which allows for extra room, comfort and aesthetic. Classic 5 button down shirt in a 8 different fabrics! Libby does not have a set in sleeve, so she is ideal for broad shoulders as the fit is quite relaxed in that area. She is the perfect for a smart/casual look in the office or you could even tuck the little pockets away into your favourite skirt for a completely seamless look.
Team Libby back with your favourite Made590 skirt – girls that come to mind are; Kenzie, Kelly, Kylie, Bonnie and newest version – Baby Bonnie! Dare to pattern clash! Or wear with your favourite pair of jeans or slim legged pants. A versatile staple for the wardrobe, because who doesn’t need a few great shirts to dress up an outfit. Also a great tran-seasonal piece for your summer/autumn wardrobe with the sleeveless detail, but easy enough to add to your Winter layers with a basic long sleeve underneath or a cardigan over the to.

Milly Dresses Instore and Online Now!

A new addition to the Made590 family is the Milly Dress! We know you all love the cadet dress, so here is a new friend in the same family as the cadet, a stylish little shift called Milly, with cute usable pockets and paneled lines we think you’re going to love. We we inspired by the mod 60’s when designing this little lady, because they did love a good shift dress back then, and we still love one now. This dress is part of our Golden Apple Range, which means it’s made using lovely, high quality and versatile fabrics we have sourced for this particular style. We have designed this dress with work wear and smart casual events in mind. It’s subtle, it’s fun and it’s a little bit special!
The Milly Dress features cute capped sleeves that are great for layering and two angled deep pockets on the side of the skirt which hit at a flattering point on all shapes. We have added facings at the neckline, rather than a bind for a smooth finish all the way round. Paneling down the body which ends at the pockets to create a nice line down the front of the dress, without breaking up the lovely textures and patterns of the fabrics too much. She’s a sweet, simple little dress you could wear to work, to a wedding, with layers or without. The best thing about Milly is the stretch in the fabrics which means she also gets an A+ for her comfort factor. The length hits at the knee on most people, which is flattering to your legs and a great length if you choose to wear her with boots. A new favourite, sure to end up as your “go to” dress.
You can team Milly with some footless tights and flats going into autumn, or as the chill hits add some layers like our long sleeve basics, opaque stockings in a fun colour and your favourite knee high or ankle boots. You could even add one of our winter wool cardigans or a blazer for work. Milly is fun, versatile and oh-so flattering and instore and online now!

Autumn has Arrived!

It is time to jump into all of our new season goodies and our latest newsletter has just landed in your inboxes, but if you aren’t signed up then you can take a peek here! If you aren’t signed up (we don’t know why- our newsletters are awesome!) then you can sign up to our mailing list right here.


To say that we have been busy is an understatement! We have been working around the clock to make sure that we are ready for the cooler weather – that we’re sure will grace us with its presence very soon! And also making sure that we have lots of pieces that you can wear right now, and easily transition in to the cooler weather.
We’re also excited to say that we have lots of new shapes that have just been released and are instore and online now!
The newest shape which is inspired and based off our popular Panel Tee Top – is the Panel Tee Dress. She features a relaxed fit, scooped neckline featuring a front panel print, and back stretch fabric in contrast colour, a slight a-line shape, short sleeve and soft lycra back which is super flattering on the body as it has a lovely fall and contours the feminine shape – perfect for all shapes and sizes! 100% high quality lycra in the back and sleeves -and 100% woven cotton front. Sizes available: XS – L
The newest top to arrive is the ‘Rizzo’ top! She features a slash neckline, with internal facing which creates a seamless neckline and can also be worn draped into a slight cowl if you bring the sleeve up onto your shoulders. It has a cute little cuff on the sleeve, added bust darts for a perfect fit and is made from lovely cotton lycra which gives a great shape and is practical for easy washing and wearing.
Team back with your favourite Made590 skirt – girls that come to mind are; Kenzie, Kelly, Kylie and Bonnie. Dare to pattern clash with our printed Rizzo as it is just the right scale to work with large pattern skirts. This top can also be worn to work with tailored pants and suits as the neckline is modest but interesting. You can even throw it on with a pair of jeans on weekends and accessorise with an interesting necklace or brooch. Rizzo also works well being layered with our long sleeve basic tops in winter. Sizes available : XS-XL
