Looking to fight the cold weather, without sacrificing your fashion sense, then this blog post is for you. Every season we set out to create a wardrobe that works for our lifestyle. Introducing a few new pieces, while still taking full advantage of our old favourites. Today we’re talking about those pieces that you’re going to be reaching for on a daily basis all from Banana Republic. The key is to invest in items that you’ll be wearing time and time again. From playful jumpsuits to statement coats, to cozy sweaters and girly dresses, these top 10 winter wardrobe essentials will have you looking chic and stylish all season long. Plus now through 12/14 you can save 30-50% off of everything on site (a few restrictions apply)!
Although one might think to reach for a skinny jean when it comes to bottoms, a playful jumpsuit is equally as versatile. Its streamlined silhouette allows you to layer with multiple pieces for that added warmth but looks equally as beautiful on its own. Toss on a chunky sweater and flat booties for weekend errands, or pair it with a statement leather jacket and pointy toe heels for a night on the town. This Banana Republic Tuxedo Jumpsuit is sophisticated enough to wear to an office holiday party but can just as easily be paired down with sneakers and a causal handbag.
Nothing says girl boss off-duty like a cozy chunky-knit sweater. Not only is it the perfect layering piece, it can easily be dressed up and down depending on your mood. This Banana Republic Chunky High Crew-Neck Sweater comes in an array of playful colours and goes with everything. It looks amazing overtop of a collared shirt for a more business appropriate look but is also stunning tucked into your fave pleated skirt and heels for evening.
In the dead of winter, your outerwear is the most important aspect of your outfit, so why not make a bold impact with it? A statement coat will add that pop of colour to an otherwise simple and boring outfit. No matter if you rock that ultra-chic monochromatic outfit, or having fun with prints and patterns, this Banana Republic Sherpa Car Coat is sure to make a statement. It looks amazing with any neutral or all-black outfit you may be styling, but don’t be afraid to pair it with all your colour pieces as well.
Speaking of winter coats, if you’re looking for a more natural one, yet is still playful and fun, try this Banana Republic Sherpa Cocoon Coat.
Sure, over-the-knee boots might keep your legs extra toasty and warm; they can’t be styled with everything. This is where a good pair of ankle boots come into play. This chic and stylish Banana Republic Block-Heel Ankle Boot is just what you need to finish off any outfit. It’s done in a neutral and versatile animal print, ensuring it goes with everything, along with a blocked heel for added comfort. From skinny jeans to flowy dresses, you’ll be reaching for these on the daily.
Nothing screams December quite like sequins and sparkle. A shimmery top will quickly become your uniform, just like a basic tee is during the hot summer months. I know you’re probably thinking that you can only wear it out to a fancy dinner or gala, but this season try incorporating a little sparkle into your everyday wear. The trick is to look for pieces that can pair with casual items like denim and leather. First up, we have this stunning Banana Republic Sequin Camisole, done in a stunning silver that allows you to not only dress it up, but style it with jeans and sneakers for a more relaxed effect.
If you’re looking for something a little sexier for evening, try this gorgeous Banana Republic Metallic Pleated Camisole. It’s metallic, playing on this season’s hottest trend, along with a little shimmer and shine to add texture.
Just because it’s bone-chillingly cold and blustery outside, doesn’t mean you should forgo your chic printed dresses. Just opt for one with a long sleeve, so it doesn’t look too “summery”, and pair it with tights to keep your legs toasty warm. You can also style it with over-the-knee boots and a bomber jacket or short teddy bear coat for that extra layer of comfort and cosiness. Loving this playful Banana Republic Print Puff-Sleeve Wrap Dress. It’s done in this electrifying red leopard print and features puffy sleeves and a waist cinching wrap style design.
If animal print isn’t your thing, try this Banana Republic Floral Puff-Sleeve Dress. Its figure flattering fit and flare cut pairs beautifully with its ultra-feminine black and pink floral design. It’s a little flirtatious and girly, while the solid black background creates a sense of sophistication and modernise.
Faux Fur is always in style and it doesn’t get anymore glamourous than this Banana Republic Faux Fur Short Coat.
