Banana Republic is like that one consistent, albeit predictable, girlfriend. You know… the one who will always be there when you need her, but who's always a smidge on the boring side. Unfortunately for BR, its new spring line doesn't really elevate 'her' status. We found a standard collection of metallic sweaters, tulip skirts and python accessories.
Below are the simple, understated standouts that are worth a gander.
It's not an eye explosion, but the Shiny Pleated Sweater ($79) would look sharp with a pair of crisp white jeans.
I out-and-out love the Artistic Metal Cuff ($44). Plus, it's not a huge investment if you're trying statement jewelry out for the first time.
The vertical stripes on the Shiny Pleated Sweater Dress ($150) are slimming, which makes this a flattering option for both work and evening.
