Mixed Stripe Fit-and-Flare Dress

If you know me, you know I love a good sale at Banana Republic.  Over the last couple of weeks, BR has been offering stacked discounts on sale items.  While browsing the petite section, I found this "Mixed Stripe Fit-and-Flare" dress with a size 0P online for me to snap up at an additional 25% off sale price plus an additional 10% off for BR Luxe card members.  The sale price minus discounts brought the dress down from $140 to $76--score!  The poly/cotton blend fabric has just the right amount of stretch, and the coverage makes it perfect for the office.  I also love the color--and any excuse to break out my cobalt suede pumps.  I know I will get a ton of wear out of this dress this spring and beyond.

A fit-and-flare dress is a tremendously versatile spring piece.  You can dress one up with jewelry and heels for a special occasion like I did here (spring weddings, anyone?), add a blazer and pumps for the office, or simply add flats and a cardigan for a casual lunch date.  I'm partial to stripes, as you all know, so I picked out my favorite striped fit-and-flare dresses for today's featured items.  All three dresses are currently priced under $80!
