Deal Of The Day: Up To 40% Off Hot Citrus Hues At Banana Republic
March 24, 2008
You already know juicy citrus hues are hot for the coming warm-weather seasons. But when sunny shirts, jackets, and dresses are up to 40 percent off, the trend becomes downright tantalizing. Harness the power of the sun, picking bright, sweet-n-sour shades of lemon, orange, and lime to upgrade the neutrals in your closet and provide a break from boring black.
Defy the popular Mom mantras of "eat your veggies" and "don't play with your food" by using this carrot-colored blouse ($50, was $64) to infuse some playfulness into your daily work wear. Khaki slacks, brown trousers, and even dark-wash wide legged denim could all benefit from a carrot-fueled boost. They say carrots are linked to good eyesight, and in this frilly top, all eyes will be on you.
Just as citrus hues are in, so are primary colors (it's an election year, after all). Taxicab yellow falls into both categories, making this cap sleeve silk dress ($110, was $150) a must-have on dual levels. Dress up this demure dandelion frock by pairing it with a leather belt and flats, or rock red heels à la Reese for a swanky dinner date.
Tangerines, clementines, and nectarines, oh my! This tangy orange lady coat ($120, was $168) is seasonless, timeless, and the boldest way to ward off spring showers. Stand out in a sea of umbrellas — and wick away that after-the-sun-sets chill — in this feminine standard with a mod twist.
