Shopping Guide: Best of Banana Republic

We’ve been shopping more and more at Banana Republic lately.  Maybe it’s their new signature line, maybe it’s their bold colors for spring, or maybe it’s their classic-with-a-twist details.  Maybe it’s all three.  Presenting our five favorite picks from Banana Republic’s current collection:

3/4 Sleeve Beaded Cardigan
3/4 Sleeve Beaded Cardigan | $89 at Banana Republic
Cheerfully yummy.

Silk Lace Top
Silk Lace Top | $79 at Banana Republic
The beauty is in the details–scalloped lace and pin-tuck pleats.  

Silk Ruffle Sleeve Top
Silk Ruffle Sleeve Top | $64 at Banana Republic
The layered ruffles lining the sleeves are an inspired touch to an already gorgeous silk blouse.

Flatiron Embossed Triangle Satchel
Flatiron Embossed Triangle Satchel | $248 at Banana Republic
Expensive, yes, but consider it an investment piece that’ll earn you dividends each time you tote it.

Three Stone Cabochon Bracelet
Three Stone Cabochon Bracelet | $34 at Banana Republic
The perfect accessory to finish off your statement outfit.

You Said: Maybe to Minidresses

Omiru Poll Result: Maybe to Minidresses

Kate DressWe asked: Would you wear a Minidress?

You said:  Maybe.  For the second week in a row, both "Yes" and "No" each got 50% of the vote.

Style tip?  If you have less-than-perfect legs, you can still pull off the minidress trend.  Try wearing a minidress over (opaque) tights.  Black tights are the most slimming, but you can also experiment with color here.

Next question: We’re seeing plaid everywhere–on the runway, in stores, and on the streets.  But would you wear plaid yourself? Cast your vote on the sidebar!
