Our friends at Banana Republic invited us for a sneak peek into their Fall 2011 collection earlier this season. We spotted a cozy autumn palette with breezy scarves, statement necklaces and a few floral prints. Look for tones of mustard, plum and dark evergreen for this season. The look at Banana Republic is still consistently about the pencil skirt, tailored pants and silk blouses for your everyday office look with a modern twist. Fall is all about layering textures and Banana is doing cable-knits, faux fur, leopard-print and bright scarves for a hit of colour. Here are a few style snaps from the Fall 2011 collection:
The mustard dress (right) is an easy work outfit and one of my favourites from the day. I could picture wearing it on a crisp September day. Banana Republic also does a really decent job with their Petites collection - I'm 5'2". So I'm really a fan of their pants, which don't require too much tailoring and hemming.
