Banana Republic Bow Blouse and Flounce Skirt

Banana Republic Bow Blouse and Flounce Skirt

The classic button down and a flirty skirt – in this post these two wardrobe staples are brought to life, with a little flare of course. Add a bow and some flounce and you have these perfect pieces by Banana Republic. Seriously, this brand can do no wrong in my eyes.  I can wear this blouse to work and furthermore, it is even chic enough to wear to an event like New York Fashion Week. It surely is a head-turner for being such a simple piece. That’s the magic of the bow accent! One of my favorite new trends is the bow blouse. This summer we have seen crisscross laces, bandanas and chokers. I predict that the trends of playing up the neck area will continue to be a huge this fall. What better way to do so than with a pretty little bow around your neck?!

Another cute style to try this fall is the flounce skirt. It’s still warm so I’m rocking bare legs, but come fall I will style this skirt with a pair of thick tights. One of my favorite things about this skirt is, well, its flounce! It’s a fun skirt to shake and move in, making it the perfect skirt to go dancing in. The skirt brings work-to-play to a whole different level. In this look I feel like I am channeling Bridget Bardot in a classic French style. Black & white, strappy heels, teased hair, big eyes and a little pout. Scroll through these darling pictures photographed by LT Images and get inspired by these fun fall looks.

      Thank you Cassidy! I had a lot of fun shooting these looks.

  • Diana/ 03.09.2016Reply

    First of all…. The photos are excellent. You both (photographer and model) did such a great job with that shoot. !
    I really love both looks. The blouse looks great with the shorts. And the shoes and purse really make the skirt outfit shine.
    I’d have to say it’s a tie…..

    • tayloraube/ 06.09.2016Reply

      Thank you Diana! I can’t pick a favorite because I love both pieces equally! So cute, huh?!

      Thanks Sarah, much appreciated 🙂

  • Yulia/ 06.09.2016Reply

    Taylor, you are such a beauty! I love both the skirt and the bow blouse – there is something fun about each of them. I would totally wear the skirt in winter with thick black tights (just like you mentioned), and I’d take that bow blouse to a media event or a Broadway show. Needless to say, you styled these pieces perfectly. Hope you are having a great week so far:)


    • tayloraube/ 06.09.2016Reply

      I love how versatile these two pieces are! Thanks so much Yulia 🙂

    Okay, I am OBSESSED with the bow top!! The skirt in the first outfit is super pretty. I love how it’s flirty, but still sophisticated. You look beautiful in both outfits, but the bow tie top is just so much more my style. Great post!!
