Banana Republic Wants Us to Break Up Our Suits — and We're Not Mad About It
Cool girls don't stick to matching suit separates — we're far too creative for that. At Banana Republic's Fall '16 presentation, mismatched trousers and blazers were broken up by layers of sweaters, silk scarves, and furry stoles. It's a casual little styling trick we've long admired, but with the nod of approval from a sophisticated brand like BR, we're pulling off the quirky move at the office.
Though breaking up a tailored look may not appear perfectly fluid, elevating the outfit now comes by way of accessories: double-strap Mary Jane pumps add a touch of femininity, and jeweled brooches act as subtle confirmation that we thought twice before leaving the house. Read on for a handful of standout ways to mix up your workwear, straight from Banana Republic's latest collection.
