Banana Republic: Cheap Chic
Banana Republic is a staple for most women because its clothes are not only stylish, but also inexpensive: this woven silk shirt dress, which I saw today in the store, is luxuriously simple. Replacing the matching belt with a glammed-up option (gold patent, for example) elevates the simplicity of the dress and distinguishes it from the other copies strutting around the street (unfortunately, inexpensive clothes tend to be commonplace). Adding a textured cardigan or fitted jacket also quickly alters the look. A cheap $128 at Banana Republic.
