Team LIY

If you’ve been following along somewhat closely within the last few weeks, you might have noticed the LIY Team is falling head over heels [err, in this season — head over boots] for Banana Republic Factory. To be completely transparent, several of us didn’t even know this gold mine existed up until a few weeks ago. But ever since we discovered it, let’s just say it’s left our wallets a little emptier and our closets a little fuller. If you’re new to shopping Banana Republic Factory like we are, you should know it’s the same great styles and quality as Banana Republic – at prices we can go buckwild for. Without further ado, get ready to start loading up your cart! Here are 13 Cute Winter Outfits from Banana Republic Factory!

PS you can find more LIY Team Try-On’s here or shop all Team LIY looks, all in one spot!

Erin’s Finds

Black Bodysuit [true to size, wearing in small] // Velvet Skirt [true to size, wearing in 4] // Reversible Wrap // Similar Boots

I can’t get over the fit and quality of all of my Banana Republic Factory finds – this velvet skirt being my favorite find from my haul! I love the emerald green color for fall and winter and appreciate that it’s not too short! I topped it off with this simple bodysuit [just a note: the white is pretty sheer but the black is great!] and I think the combo is one of the more flattering outfits I’ve created in awhile! 

Reversible Wrap // Black Bodysuit [true to size, wearing in small] // Jeans [true to size, wearing in 27] // Booties [true to size]

Every time I see a wrap it makes me daydream of going on a wine tasting trip with girlfriends so naturally, yes, I buy almost every wrap I see. Wine not 😉 I love that this one is reversible so you can get two different looks out of it! I also like that it’s not too overwhelming on as some can be!

Cozy Cable Knit Dress [true to size, wearing in small] // Belt [true to size, wearing in small] // Similar Boots

Give me a good sweater dress any day of the week and I’m set. I’m all for “one and done” looks, other than having to choose a pair of shoes to wear with the dress, there’s nothing else to figure out [well, aside from if you want it belted or not]. This dress feels like great quality and is nice and warm for these cooler months! 

Smocked Crinkled Dress [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Similar Boots

You’re either going to love or hate this dress. I err more on the side of love. I think the print is so fun [what a little piece of artwork it is!] and like the flowy fit. It is fully lined so no sheerness here! 

White Sweater [true to size, wearing in small] // Slim Jeans [true to size, wearing in 4/27] // Belt [true to size, wearing in small] // Booties [true to size]

Do yourself a favor and buy this sweater. They didn’t name it “fluffy eyelash sweater” for nothing – fluffy it is. It is incredibly soft and while it is a basic, the fabric elevates it a notch. Another notable piece from Banana Republic Factory are these slim jeans. I’ve been wearing them like crazy and love the fit and feel of them! If you’re straying from the skinny jean trend, these are a safe in between!

Hannah’s Finds

Cozy Oversized Turtleneck Sweater [Size down if in between, wearing in XXS Petite] // Similar Jeans // Similar Booties 

While this was the first time I’ve shopped at Banana Republic Factory, I’ll definitely be shopping again! Between their cozy neutrals and mix of statement and basic pieces it was hard to narrow down what to try! I went with this super cozy turtleneck sweater that’s supposed to be a tunic, however I sized down so it would have a more fitted look! Not scratchy, super comfy and a closet basic!

Sheer-Sleeve Crepe Top [TTS, wearing in XS] Similar Jeans // Heels [TTS]

Can’t get over the details of this top!! Such a fun basic with a twist with the sheer sleeves and the color is even prettier in person! This one would be great for work, date night or everyday!  

Lauren’s Finds

Sweater [true to size, wearing medium] // Skirt [true to size, wearing large] // Belt [true to size] // Boots [true to size]

I tend to lean towards jeans and sweaters [or leggings and sweatshirts] all winter long, so thought it was fun to throw on a skirt for a changeup! Perfect for every occasion from the office to date night to church to brunch! It’s nice and flowy and will transition easily to a tank and denim jacket come spring!

Katy’s Finds

Boyfriend Flannel [size up one, wearing small] // Jeans [true to size] // Boots [true to size]

Boyfriend flannels for the win!! Lately, I have found myself reaching for comfortable, oversized tops and this one will now be added to that list. It’s lightweight but feels quality and is legging friendly! I sized up for a more oversized look and am 5’4” for reference.

Cozy Ribbed off the Shoulder Sweater [size up if in between] // Midi Skirt [true to size] // Boots [true to size] 

This sweater definitely feels high quality and I think it’s so cute for work or a date night! I do wish I would have sized up because it felt like it was going to ride up and not stay “off the shoulder”! Which color would you choose?

Macy’s Finds

Long Moto Knit Jacket [tts, wearing petite xxs] 

Where are my petite girls at?! I barely stand 5 feet tall so I have always struggled finding a long dress coat that doesn’t go past my knees. But HOORAY I finally found one that fits like a glove. I am so happy with the way this coat fits and feels and I will definitely be going back to Banana Republic Factory’s petite section for more pieces!

Claire’s Finds

Coated Skinny Jean [size down one if in between, wearing 29 but could do 28] // Similar Sweater // Exact Style [TTS, wearing medium] // Similar Flats

These Coated Skinny Jeans were such a fun find! Think of them as the coveted faux leather leggings, but in denim form. I love that you can achieve the same faux-leather look, without having to worry about a legging-friendly top! Such a fun way to elevate your everyday black denim! I did find these to run slightly larger than expected, so I would suggest going down a size!

Vegan Suede Skinny Jean [TTS, wearing // Similar Sweater // Similar Boots // Belt

Another fun pair pf pants comin’ at ya! These Vegan Suede Skinny Jeans are so soft and stretchy! I love that these are a little something different than your basic everyday denim and could be dressed up or down! Again, I found these to be true to size, but would recommend sizing down if in between!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
