The Lowdown: February is almost history, and that means our long wait for Spring fashion is nearly over. It also means it’s time to take a long hard look in our closets to figure out just what we’re going to wear between now and May—the dreaded “transitional” dressing. Once we’ve taken stock, we’ll head for a sale like this one at Banana Republic (particularly because we love a “20 percent off” sale way more than the “$20 off” variety) and then hit the already-discounted sale items to get the best price.
Our top strategy (for maximum value) is to pick up pieces that you can layer under things you already have, and then wear alone later. And a pop of color is seriously in order. For petite girls, this silk cap-sleeve trapeze dress in rich green does the trick for $74.99. And tall girls, BR has your back too, with picks like this silk twill pleated blouse, on sale for $39.99. Oh, and these both come in average sizes too, so everybody’s happy.
