If there’s one thing we love about summer, it’s the ease and laid back vibe. With summer comes family vacations, trips to the ballpark and cookouts with our dearest friends. We are thrilled to partner with Banana Republic to share his and her summer styles from their Simply Sophisticated Summer Campaign. We are both advocates of finding pieces that offer versatility, comfort and quality. Banana Republic always checks these boxes. Their styles can often be mixed and matched. The fits are usually very comfortable. And the fabric is always quality. I never regret a BR purchase.
Summer Style for Her
I fell in love with this White Ruffle Dress. It’s the perfect summer staple. Whether you want to pair it with heels or your favorite flat sandals, it’s a dress you’ll be wearing all summer long. If you’re looking to update your summer workwear, why not pair this with a denim jacket? If you love a good hat, I highly suggest this style by Eugenia Kim. And it’s on sale, so you can’t go wrong!
Summer Style for Him
For me (Austin), I always struggle to find the balance between comfort and style in the workplace. This is especially a problem during the hot Texas summers. You can’t go all-comfort and show up to the office in shorts (unfortunately). But at the same time, you don’t want to start your 8am meeting drenched in sweat because you chose to wear those stylish wool blend pants from two winters ago. But with BR, you don’t have to choose between style and comfort. They always have a comfortable fit that looks and feels great. For this look, I chose the Grant-Fit Supima Cotton Gingham Shirt and the Fulton Skinny Stretch Chino Pant. I paired it with the Everson Italian Leather Oxford Shoe to complete the look (which is a great shoe, by the way). With this, I felt ready to take on a day at the office or just a nice, casual evening. And with the versatility of this outfit, I’ve already dressed the shirt down with a pair of jeans. You really can’t go wrong here.
Cheers to a simple (and sophisticated) summer! xx Austin + Ashley
