While many people start to gravitate towards more colorful pieces for Spring, some still prefer to walk on the more neutral side. Neutral doesn’t have to equal boring, however, and right now Banana Republic has in some key pieces that can both refresh and elevate any wardrobe, regardless of personal style. The shade range is a little more tonal and fun (think safari chic), so they will pair well with the pieces that you already own.
