Staying on top of trends can be fun and exciting (at the moment) but having more classic pieces that you can mix and match is much better in the long run.  Plus your wallet will thank you later!  I used to hoard clothes but now I’d rather invest in a few classic items rather than buying items on sale or on impulse.  Those usually end up in the donation pile anyway so why not save myself the hassle.  Anyone else guilty of this? 🙂

I’ve been a long time fan of Banana Republic.  I love the quality of their clothes and the petite sizes have always fit me really well without any alterations.  I’m loving so many items from the BR Classics – a collection of wardrobe staples and timeless pieces.  This fit and flare dress and classic stripe shirt is definitely a must have!
Banana Republic  V-Neck Fit-and-Flare Dress, Banana Republic classics DILLON-FIT VERTICAL STRIPE SHIRT, J.Crew mint pumps, Loeffler Randall Rider bag This dress has all the qualities that make a dress fabulous.  The perfect length, high quality material and pockets…what more could you ask for?  Plus it has a hidden zipper in the back (yay!).  The v-neck isn’t too deep and has plenty of coverage which makes it work appropriate.  Sizing runs true to size however if you have a larger bust, I’d recommend sizing up.  The material is a heavier fabric (holds it’s shape all day) and doesn’t wrinkle (yippee!).  The flare is perfect, accentuates your waist and flatters all body types.  It comes in three different colors and is available in regular, tall and petite sizes.  If the antarctic blue (more of mint color) isn’t for you, then I’d suggest the secret plum or black.

If a classic trench coat is on your Spring wish list, I would recommend THIS ONE.  I have one from a couple seasons ago and love it.  How adorable is this striped cross-hem tank?  It’ll look so chic with some white jeans and THESE lace up pumps.
