If you spend $100: Spring workwear at Banana Republic

Banana Republic saleWe'll make this quick, since styles are bound to sell out in a heartbeat: Banana Republic is marking down spring styles (that's right, stuff you can wear right now) by as much as 40%. Which makes this the perfect time to score a warm-weather work outfit that will lift you out of the winter wardrobe doldrums without breaking the bank. A couple options:

A sunny, streamlined look:
This satin-front tee (I love it in the buttery yellow shade) is the epitome of effortless perfection. And I'm obsessed with these silk cargo pants -- they let you capitalize on a current look without any crazy bells and whistles. They're flattering and subtle enough to outlast the trend. Total: $99.98 before shipping.

A dress for success:
This shirtdress may be the most versatile piece of the season . You can wear it with boots, heels, flats, scarves, belts, statement necklaces -- or all on its own. And yes, you can get a shirtdress just about anywhere right now -- but here's what I love about this one. The waist isn't defined by a little string or a flimsy seam -- the wide band of material will define your narrowest angles and flatter everyone. Punch it up with this eye-catching braided bracelet. Total: $99.98 before shipping.

And don't forget -- you can combine shipping from Banana's cheaper sisters (Gap and Old Navy) online -- so feel free to pair with great finds from their departments. Happy spring shopping!
