I went shopping with a long legged, curvy hourglass client last week and she was especially thrilled when we put together this outfit from Banana Republic for casual days at work: tailored striped tee, trouser jeans, and knitted moto jacket. She loves to wear bootcuts, create a tailored silhouette, and feel extra comfortable at the office. She also realized how great she looked in ink blue because it’s a softer alternative to black.
- Mini-Stripe Timeless Tee: Tailored but not clingy, which is rare to find in T-shirts these days. The low boat neck is flattering on a larger bust and there is a good amount of length.
- Quilted Knit Moto Jacket: This item has made my top picks lists before. It’s super cozy, streamlined, and can be layered under a coat. Looks fab zipped or unzipped.
- Indigo Denim Trouser Jeans: Plenty of length, even in regular sizes. Stretchy, but not too stretchy. Great fit over the thigh, tummy, and waist area. I found these too high rise for my own tastes, only because I prefer low rise jeans and trousers. But they are fabulous if you enjoy a girdling fit.
We finished off the look with black patent tote, low-heeled black booties, and deep red coat. Sizes do come back into stock, so keep rechecking online. Also there was still plenty of stock of these items in brick and mortar stores.
