Modern Elegance at Banana Republic Factory
Happy Friday, ladies. Today I’ve got some quintessential fall wardrobe pieces today with a timeless appeal and modern edge. And the good news is, they’re all currently 50% off.
A huge thank you to Banana Republic Factory and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. Thank you for supporting the brands that support AWSL.
Bootcut pants are a huge trend for fall. Make them in traditional fabric, and they become a wearable basic for years to come. These bootcut corduroy pants have off-seam front pockets, back welt pockets, and waist darts for a streamlined fit. I opted for the petite, which has a 30.5″ inseam. It’s a medium to wide wale that’s soft and comfy.
I paired it with this forever V-neck sweater. I honestly can’t get enough of this fabric. It’s a machine washable fine knit made from breathable fiber derived from certified renewable wood sources using methods that reduce water impact and emissions by up to 50%. I’m wearing the snow day color, which is a soft white. I topped that with this double-breasted slim blazer in timeless herringbone and silver pearl earrings for a touch of elegance in a contemporary shape.
Here, I dressed the blazer down with some jeans and a pair of modern lug sole Chelsea Boots. I love the ease of just slipping on a comfy bootie.
Lug soles are very popular this season, but my feet aren’t flattered by the monster ones, so I was thrilled to find this pair. They’re wide enough for thin socks, don’t pinch my bunion, and the extra lug of the sole adds cushioning that my feet appreciate.
I’ve had my eye on this oversized cardigan for some time and finally bought it. Can I just say…I adore this shade of brown. Many have a warm base, but this is a cool-toned neutral that hints at deep taupe. I love how easily it coordinates with so many colors, and it’s super soft. I’m wearing it over these vegan suede skinny jeans, which fit beautifully. The leg is not super tight and, like all vegan suede, has lots of stretch. I bought black, but they also come in brown or camel.
Blazers with stretch are so much comfier than wovens and give a more casual vibe to my casual looks. This blazer has shawl collared lapels and single button closure. I bought the navy, and it also comes in black. I always find that shorter blazers are a better proportion with wider-leg pants or jeans.
I love my forever pullovers so much that I ordered a few cardigans. Their fine knit is light enough to layer under and over things making it perfect for my climate. The shape reminds me of a refined boyfriend cardigan that’s comfy but not oversized.
This cardigan comes in nine yummy colors. I couldn’t resist this dark cherry. The petite medium is a great fit for me, and I’m thrilled the sleeves are long enough. I couldn’t resist the emerald green either 🙂 If you ask, I will not admit how many forever sweaters I’ve bought, but suffice to say, plenty!
