One of the most difficult things I face is maintaining a stylish work wardrobe. I always drift towards stand-out pieces like these rainbow pants or a pink leather jacket. Yes, my style can get just a little extra. Through my corporate experience (all 2 years, lol) I have found some brands that make looking stylish for work as simple as putting on the clothes. One of my favorite workwear brands is Banana Republic. Their style is so sophisticated and I can easily be wearing 3 Banana pieces in one outfit on any given day of the week. My Banana collection keeps growing, but hey I can’t complain!
A new addition to my wardrobe is this lovely Banana Republic coral sheath dress. This dress (which is currently on sale!) is simple and sophisticated, making it perfect for summer. Sheath dresses are so comfortable – they aren’t skin tight so they don’t stick to you while your sweating, and more importantly they are amazing for hiding your lunchtime food baby! I love how simple this dress is so you can accessorize it to play it up. I’m sure we all get in the groove of work outfits and often end up repeating looks. With simple pieces like this dress you can style one outfit completely different than the other. For example I threw on a long beaded necklace and floral flats to mix it up. You can also wear a nude blazer and nude pumps and play up the pink details through your bag or earrings.
Banana Republic will always be my go-to brand for work outfits. In addition, I wear a lot of these pieces on the weekends too! There’s nothing like having a piece that can be used for work or play. I styled this dress with my white Hendri Bendel bag (over 50% off!) and my Balenciaga cage heels. I am a fashion freak so when I saw these shoes at a consignment shop I had to have them. Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2008, in case you were wondering 😉 I think all the whites and pinks tied together very nicely, and I achieved the simple, sophisticated style of the Banana Republic brand.
