Two things that usually dominate my wardrobe once fall hits, sweaters and coats. Seriously though, my closet is bursting at the seams and were only a couple of weeks into fall. One of my favorite places to shop for my outerwear and sweaters is Banana Republic. I’ve talked about them countless times on the blog, but they’re my go-to for affordable and chic petite pieces. I think I add a few BR coats to my collection every year. I love that they do a mix of casual coats and more office/dressed up styles. They’re selection right now is SO good, I want every new coat they come out with.
When it comes to fall outerwear, I can’t get enough. There’s always a new style to add to my closet, they’re my weakness. Luckily a statement and faux fur coat are closet staples and my two new ones from Banana Republic are perfect for fall. The Plaid Italian Melton Long Coat is absolutely stunning! The material feels luxe (not scratchy) and I love the long length. I usually gravitate toward solid coats, so the pop of print is a nice change. The plaid is perfect for fall and you can dress it up or down and wear it to the office. Banana Republic petite outerwear has always fit me really well (I’m 5ft) and the xxs petite fits comfortably even with a sweater underneath. This coat comes in a solid dark gray as well. While sherpa and teddy coats are having their moment right now (love this one), faux fur is still a fall staple. BR’s Faux Fur Jacket is extremely soft and the navy color is so pretty and elevated. I love that it can be dressed up or down (would look so pretty with a dress). The fit is spot on! The sleeves hit right at my wrists and it’s not too short or too long. This coat also comes in a stunning winter white color. Now, if I can only find room in my closet for my new outerwear pieces…
For more fall staples, be sure to check out all of Banana Republic’s new arrivals here. I was just in-store over the weekend and spotted a few other favorites (this hoodie is amazing, this cableknit is perfect, and I love this color turtleneck sweater).
