Banana Republic is experiencing a style rebirth. While the quality is not what it once was (all the mid-price retailers are on the downslope where quality is concerned), I’ve capitalized on several 40%-off sales this fall and been happy with every single purchase. Here are a few of the pieces from their current line that caught my eye.
This coat is so chic it hurts. It’s the perfect thing to finish out this season and wear next winter. I also love this textured blue coat with a cocoon shape.
This ruched pencil skirt is perfect for evening events, or wear it with a slouchy tee on the weekends. Looking for something for work? This slightly long Sloan-fit skirt is fantastic.
This breezy cocktail dress will be in my closet by week’s end, and I am so excited. It’s fun, flirty, and perfect with a black jacket. For a sleeker choice, do not miss the neckline on this black sheath dress.
This bag is a storage dream. It has two exterior pockets, internal storage, and pockets for cell phones and coins. The cross body strap is always appreciated.
The soft hue of this blouse is sublime. It also comes in black or ivory. It’s a bit more sheer than I would like, but that’s what camisoles are for. I also like this long silk tunic to wear over skinny jeans.
Unique, Professional Shoes
This might be the ideal spring/summer shoe. This snakeskin pump is pure perfection. Prefer a flat? This Amirah flat mixes black and a brushstroke print for a fantastic casual/business casual shoe.
Versatile Work Dresses
I bought this dress for my brother’s girlfriend, who is a teacher. If you buy it in your regular size, it’s going to be a little va-va-voom. Go up a size for a work appropriate choice. For another work option, I like the black and white geometric print on this Gemma wrap dress.
