If you long to look like you’ve stepped off a yacht in the Hamptons this summer, I have amazing news for you. Banana Republic—the internet’s favorite brand of the moment and supplier of to-die-for elevated basics—is having a Summer Preview Event sale for Memorial Day Weekend. Call it the return of the quiet luxury look or just the continuation of the Clean Girl trend, but Banana Republic’s popularity is rooted in the fact that shoppers are looking for pieces that can stand the test of time, so why not get those pieces at a discounted price right now? 

The 30 percent off sale will run from May 25 through May 29 and will be applied to most products on the site, including the new-in section, so you have a few days to consider your purchases before putting in your credit card information. All you need to do to access the deals is enter the code "BRSUMMER" at checkout. 

Summer fashion is synonymous in my mind with linen pants, linen dresses, and any piece of clothing that comes in shades of either white or cream—all things that Banana Republic is doing very well right now. This season's array of breezy separates can be worn to the beach or to the office (true versatility!) with only a subtle change of styling. And when colorful moments do emerge in the newest collection, they come in shades like trendy poppy orange and pale blush pink. The brand also expertly blends masculine silhouettes with feminine touches, like an off-the-shoulder blouse made from a weighty linen fabric, or a cream linen blazer piped with black finishings and with a waist-cinching shape. 

Dreaming of a very Banana summer? Keep scrolling to shop a few of the pieces that I couldn't stop thinking about when they were full price and will definitely be buying now that they're on sale.
