I went to Banana Republic this week to scope out the scene, and found their spring selection to be refreshingly chic. Their spring/summer pieces have a 60's retro vibe to them à la Tory Burch, but with a modern edge. And the color palette of green, yellow, navy, and crisp white is both classy and fun. Below are our top picks from what's in Banana stores this season – an always reliable source of fashion staples that won't leave you with a sudden case of sticker shock.
BR has stepped it up in the accessory department, offering an eclectic assortment of jewelry at reasonable prices. We especially covet this tortoise chain link necklace ($49) for its vintage vibe and use of diverse materials.
This silk paisley shirtdress ($130) is a must-have for any vacation. If there's no relaxing getaway in your plans, throw it on for one of your shopping expeditions.
Pair these lemon sandals ($78) with the dress to add a pop of color and keep from looking too serious. After all, it is spring – everyone should be semi-happy, or at least appear that way.
Complete the look with this green Flatiron satchel ($248). A colorful bag is a fun way to add punch to any outfit.
And check out Banana Republic's hot hues at up to 40% off.
