Five For Five: Banana Republic

It is day two of my five days, five stores, five must haves for spring and it’s all about Banana Republic today. Banana Republic is the grown up more sophisticated sibling of The Gap and one of my favorite go-to stores. Besides their clothes you can often find great handbags and very on trend yet highly fashionable jewelry.

The five things that will serve you well this spring and that I plan on adding to my closet, all available at www.bananarepublic.com.

You can never have enough cardigans for spring and this silk cotton blend with exposed seams is available in 12 colors with a long, lean silhouette. Wear it as a jacket over silky tops and dresses or use it to add style to rugged boyfriend jeans.

Banana Republic is famous for it’s amazing fitting button down shirts for men and women and this cotton safari shirt is no exception. Available in five colors it has a soft texture and silky sheen and will instantly update everything in your closet. Wear it on the weekends with jeans for a laid-back sophisticated look or reach for it on hectic workdays to wear with pencil skirts and dress pants.

It is all about the loose pant for spring and I plan on living in these on the weekends with a fitted black tee and flip flops. The drawstring ankles add a bit of playfulness and will show off flip flops and a pedicure nicely. Fashion made easy and comfy!

I am a sucker for animal prints and this jaguar print silk dress is sophisticated in shades of gold and gray. Wear it paired with nude platforms and a gray cardigan early on and switch to gold flip flops as it gets warmer.

This leather motorcycle jacket hits two trends on the head with its light neutral color and tough jacket style that looks so good paired with silk feminine tops and dresses. It is an effortless piece that you can wear season after season without going out of style.

Cheap But Still Chic

Banana Republic kindly placed in my e-mail inbox an offer advertising their summer dress event where most dresses are $98 or less. Most of these dresses are a steal at $98 and will be a welcome addition to your summer wardrobe. Available on www.bananarepublic.com.

I love this yellow dress, so bright, cheerful and stylish! Plus it looks like a much more expensive brand.

This origami pleated dress is the epitome of understated chic and will look great paired with gorgeous heels and stacks of bangle bracelets.

A crisp white cotton tunic paired with denim bermudas combine to make a super chic summer outfit.

Banana Republic always has a great selection of gorgeous jewelry at very reasonable prices (I heard a rumor awhile back that their jewelry looks so good because Chan Luu helps design it, not sure if it is true, but it would explain alot).
