Business Casual with Banana Republic

Chunky Duster Cardigan {loving this one & the shape of this one}

Finding work appropriate clothing can be so difficult! You want the pieces to fit well and are modest enough for the office, but still have enough flare to be stylish and exciting. Which is exactly why I love Banana Republic. Not only are their pieces staples, but they are also perfect for business-chic women on the go!

The older I get, the more transitional pieces matter. Because I am no longer shopping for a given event… I’m shopping for life! I need to be able to wear something to work, make a quick adjustment and head to dinner and then throw on another layer and run errands.

Take thistop, for example. Looking for a casual look? Add some denim bottoms and you are ready for a business casual workday. Dress it up with some jewelry for dinner and then throw on a chunky cardigan for a more casual ensemble!

Need to dress it up a bit more? Take that same top and then pair it with one of their classic skirts. Layer the look with a nice pull over cardigan and then polish the look with a clutch.

I’m telling you guys, you simply can’t go wrong! (Hit to all my younger readers, start your professional wardrobe now so it’s not as daunting later.) Happy shopping!

  1. I love the pop of color you added to this look! It really makes the look stand out!

  2. That purple/pink color is GORGE! I love that you paired it with a grey sweater too, very unique! I would've thought black but I like the grey more <3

  3. Beautiful outfit! Love the purple color on you! Amazing!

  4. That sweater looks so cozy! I have a similar one but it's short sleeved and more poncho-y. I love your jeans and booties too!
