Fall Shopping 2009 at Banana Republic

This fall Banana Republic seems to be all about draping and pleating. A little bit more lady like than they usually are. This is great for me (I see a lot I can wear to work), but I do wish the casual clothes had a bigger selection.

I'd shop at Banana very frequently this fall, they seem to be going crazy with sales!

1. Cap-sleeve pintucked top: This top looks plain and very basic, but I do think the pintucking detail at the sleeve and neckline really dresses it up. I also love the drape of the silk here.

2. Tiered mini dress: I'm not sure that I have an event to wear this to, but I may need to create one.

3. Jackson plaid flannel trouser: I love the fit of BR's Jackson pants. This is the fit for you if you are at all curvy. I'm thin, but I definitely have hips, and these are very flattering. The tall is just right for me to wear with heels.

4. Flannel Grey Military Jacket: A bit edgier than a plain blazer, but perfect for this fall.

5. Flutter-Sleeve Pleated Dress: I'm much more likely to find an event to wear this dress to. It looks dressy but is demure enough to wear to a work event.

6. Tulip Skirt: BR has 2 tulip skirts this season, and they are not the tulip skirts of yore. Previously they were even harder to wear than a pencil skirt, and they looked good only on model thin girls. (I've been back stage at fashion week now and I can honestly say you do not want to be that thin, it's a bit scary) These new tulip skirts are popping up now, and I need to snatch a few up. To me they are the alternative to a pencil skirt, meaning they are definitely appropriate for many occasions and very versatile, but somehow they are a bit more offbeat. The new tulip skirt cuts also seem to be a bit more friendly to those of us with hips. I need one in black, one in grey....

7. Pearl Braid Necklace: The statement necklace is chunkier this season, and I love this one. Pearls, chains, ribbon.... I think it could work easily for day or night.

Hi Christine,
I love Banana Republic clothing. Banana Republic features a wide variety of colors and styles, how are prices so low at Outlet stores like Banana Republic Outlet Store? How can these prices be so low compared to the main store banana republic?
