It would be an understatement if I were to say I was not thinking about fall. It is one of my favorite times of the year as the foliage in New England changes and ultimately my style. In preparation for the change in season, I have picked a few key items that will upgrade and diversify your wardrobe.
Banana Republic is one of my favorite brands. I find that their price point is relatively affordable while providing stylish pieces that remain classic throughout the years. As much as I enjoy playing with trends, I still like to maintain a minimal look. There is no better time than now to stock up on some key items for fall! With the friends and family it is 40% off of your purchase (use code BRFRIENDS) or if you are a Gap Inc. cardholder you save 50% with and additional 10% on top, so roughly 55% off of your purchase which is amazing (use code BRCARD50 and BRCARD when checking out).
I narrowed down my friends and family picks to only five key pieces that I think will make a great addition to your wardrobe.
Double Breasted Blazer: The best item that you should invest in is a good blazer. Trust me when I say they go a long way and are hardly ever out of style. This double-breasted blazer is classy and feminine with just a hit of edge. I would style this blazer with jeans, a tee, and flats.
High-Rise Straight Denim: These jeans are my newest obsession! I own a pair and I adore the fit. It’s was a no brainer when I included them as a must-have. A high waist straight leg is comfortable and flattering while not being clingy. I have begun to gravitate towards more straight and wide-leg versus a skinny cut. These jeans pair great with a light sweater and ankle boots or even a tee and sneakers. I think these jeans would look sophisticated with the double-breasted blazer and those slingback flats pictured above.
Pearl Hoop Earrings: I also own these earrings and I am wearing them with the outfits pictured above. Every time I wear them I receive a compliment because they truly are a subtle statement piece. I wear them with anything casual to dressy.
Silk Cashmere Sweater: There is nothing more luxurious than a silk-cashmere blend. This star sweater is lightweight, super soft, and feminine. There is no better transitional piece for fall than this. I imagine wearing it with a trench coat, jeans, and ankle boots.
Slingback Flat: Classic and effortless, the slingback flat can take you from day-to-night. They are simple, but that is why I love them. These flats are also available in black and beige suede (also gorgeous). Wear these into fall by pairing them with the high waist straight leg jeans and the double-breasted blazer or with a floral maxi dress for an ultimate feminine look.
