Few things can get me moving early in the morning. One of those things is the promise of an early-access shopping adventure at Banana Republic for their new collaboration with L’Wren Scott. Earlier this morning, I got a sneak peek at the collection and boy was I wowed. Featuring gorgeous, saturated hues, holiday sparkle and pretty prints, the collection is highly giftable – both for yourself and others.
Party Dress Central:
If you’re looking for a holiday party dress, look no further. From slinky, body-con sparkle to ladylike jacquard sheaths, the dresses in the L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic collection are not to be missed. I was particularly enamoured with the jacquard dress and the faux fur bolero. Unfortunately the bolero hadn’t arrived yet, but I’ll be back in to pick it up. It’s the perfect little piece to keep your shoulders warm and add a bit of drama to your holiday attire.
I love a little sparkle in the workplace. From glittery cardis to subtly shimmery blazers, the L’Wrenn Scott for Banana Republic collection has great day-to-night pieces that will dress up your look and keep you looking fresh from desk to drinks. I love the peony & stripes tee paired with the sparkly cardi – how chic!
Pretty in Print:
The first thing that caught my eye in this collaboration were the amazing prints. The peony & lip prints are bold without being loud and look just as cute under a blazer as they will over jeans all summer long. I wish I was adventurous enough to buy the peony print jeans – how lovely are they?
As I’ve told you before, I completely lack self control in Banana Republic…especially when they have a special collaboration on tap. I picked up a few versatile pieces and will be back for more (oops).
Lip print blouse + brocade-printed jeans:
Peony print blouse + bow-back velvet blazer:
Oh yes, they put a bow on it. I can’t wait to wear this sumptuously soft blazer with just about everything. From my experiences, the collection fits true to size (maybe a tad big in some cases).
If you’re feeling generous, this collection has a lot of little goodies that would make the perfect stocking stuffers and gifts for your loved ones. My faves? The 2-pack of lipstick print socks that I picked up for $20 plus the garnet lip clutch, peony print scarf + adorable tees.
You can shop the L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic collection online and in-store starting on Dec. 5.
