A Classic Update At Banana Republic

Banana Republic is the place to be if you favour the smart and polished look. This season they are all about taking a traditional classic design and re-inventing it for a more up-to date look.

An update to the classic shirt is, while it is still fitted, to have a more slouchy, relaxed feel while still giving off the smart concept you would expect. Also, using a striped material (such as this) instead of just the classic white we all know. I would personally wear these shirts with jeans, adding heels for a night out, or with leather leggings for a more rock 'n' roll look.

Switch your classic denim jacket for their coated denim one definitely gives it an update and also gives it a leather look, without the leather price tag. This is one piece you will love in your wardrobe, as it can be worn multiple ways, from with jeans for that 90's double denim look to with a dress to 'harden' it up a bit, or relax that sequin dress you've been dying to wear.

Backpacks are going nowhere fast - this rose coloured one is the perfect update to take you into the new season - I personally love this bag! Also, leather is nice change from all the material ones you normally see and it has better durability, so it is defiantly an investment piece. With it having a simple, toned-down colour it gives a more polished look and it is also perfectly on trend and if you want  to be catwalk cool, clash with a red top. The style of this also reminds me of Cara Delevingne's collection for Mulberry - without that price tag.

The ankle strap shoes has now gone from heels to ballet flats and these ones are perfect for the new season. With the contracting back colour, they are sure to stand out with whatever you wear them with.

What do you think of Banana Republic's new collection?
