I’ve long thought that Banana Republic’s best collections are their late spring/early summer ones, and this year is no exception. Plus, they’re having insane sales at the moment, so I thought I’d highlight one of my very favorite pieces, this cute little striped sweater. Banana’s sales are constantly changing, but at the moment this sweater is on sale…AND has an additional 40% off promo.
Banana Republic’s Chic & Comfy Striped Cotton Sweater: 6 Outfit Ideas
It’s not really warm enough for true summer outfits here in Philly, but I’ve been looking for a spring-y (yet comfy) topper to throw on. This striped sweater fits the bill. I prefer it a bit shrunken, so I went with my typical size, and it’s available in a ton of colors. It’s perfect with high-rise anything, and I love the nonchalantly chic vibe. It’s an updated classic, for sure.
1. Early Summer Date Night Outfit Idea
It’s so chic and classic that I immediately wanted to offset the preppy vibe with some seriously destroyed denim. And my all-time-favorite heels are on sale at Nordstrom Rack, so if you haven’t yet checked those out…highly recommend.
2. With Bright Sneaks (For Running Errands Now)
This is how I’ve been wearing it to the grocery store. With a mask, obvi. Also, these sneaks are insanely comfy. (Laura was RIGHT.)
3. With White Denim (& Nude Heels)
I was worried this would be too preppy for me…but I like it. It reads a little sexy, and is perfect for summer. (These Everlane jeans are nice and opaque, too — some of my fav white jeans right now.) And the heels, if you care (will we ever wear heels again??) are Naturalizer. SO. COMFY.
4. Kinda Fancy, With Cut-Off Shorts
I’m picturing a tiny little clutch, gold hoops…and a tan.
5. How I’ll Actually Wear It With Sneakers & Shorts
HA! Realistically, this is how I’ll probably wear it most of the time.
6. Around The House With Athleta Wide-Leg Pants
And THIS is how I’m currently wearing it. Casual enough to not look ridiculous with soft pants or joggers…but a little more elevated than a sweatshirt. I’d totally take a zoom call in this.
