When you think of Banana Republic, several images likely come to mind: Classic designs in flattering silhouettes; timeless styles meant to carry over from season to season; and luxurious-looking clothing for a fraction of the cost. It's the perfect store for stocking up on basics or for building the perfect capsule wardrobe, and its elevated image is right in line with the recent quiet luxury trend that's taken the internet (and people's closets) by storm. The popular Gap-owned brand also runs unbelievable sales, slashing prices on some of its most popular items across every category, and right now it's running a tremendous one that takes an additional 40 percent off of all sale items—no exceptions.
So whether you're looking for your next summer dress, your business professional fit, or you're stocking up on cold weather clothes to get ahead of next season, you're in luck. Below, I've gathered some of my absolute favorite items from the sale, whose prices simply can't be beat. You'll be feeling like a million bucks—without spending a million bucks—in no time.

Banana Republic Wylder Tweed Blazer

While you're investing in the pants, why not go for the matching blazer? This sleek tweed number works as a set or separately. It's oversized, making it easy to throw over just about anything during any season, and it's made from recycled cotton at the Italian Lanificio Fratelli Balli Mill.

This sheer, lightweight top screams quiet luxury, and its delightful airiness makes it perfect for throwing on for a hot summer day. It's also made from ramie, a natural fiber, which lends it an earthen look and sets it apart from traditional crisp white button-downs.

This modern, flowy summer dress is perfect for wearing to work during the warmer months. Its cinched waist flatters any and every shape, while its long A-line skirt and mock neck keep it professional. Wear it with your hair in a polished up-do to draw extra attention to the dress' maximalist drama, and keep your accessories simple and scant.
Banana Republic Ramie Pintuck Shirt
$110 $90 | Banana Republic
This shirt, with its airy fit and romantic detailing it bound to become one of your summertime go-tos in no time. It's easy to dress up for professional wear, and just as fun to dress down for days spent relaxing in the sun. Its semi-sheer fabric also makes it a great way of showing off your favorite bralette.

Everyone needs a versatile, high-quality tank top once the warmer months roll around, so why not invest in a luxury option that will last from year to year? The turtleneck element of this tank also gives it an elevated, professional look that's perfect for heading into office.
Banana Republic Esme Embroidered Mini Dress
$100 $71 | Banana Republic
This dress was inspired by Victorian fashion, with its romantic embroidery, layered ruffles, and voluminous tiers. And because the soft cotton fabric is thin, it features a camisole lining so you can don it with confidence no matter where you're going.
Banana Republic Alto Blanket Skirt
$250 $200 | Banana Republic
I'm obsessed with this skirt, which looks to the Red Rock mountains of the southwest for its inspiration. Plus, its geometric stripe pattern and crisp, fitted cut lends it a structure that makes it perfect for balancing out loose, billowy, or button-down tops.

My mini skirts are some of my favorite items in my closet, and this wool herringbone one is perfect for the crisp, cool days of early spring that still call for a bit of cozy flair. Made from a blend of both new and recycled wool that's blended in Lanificio Comatex Mill in Italy, this skirt is a great addition to anyone's capsule wardrobe.
Banana Republic Saguaro Fringe Leather Jacket
$650 $500 | Banana Republic
My family, friends, and colleagues will readily confirm: I positively live in leather jackets. In particular, I love versatile options with fun, distinctive details like patches, patterns, and fringe. This option, with its spacious rancher-style silhouette, certainly fits the bill, boasting a vintage-inspired fringe along the back and sleeves.
