Military and Maxis at Banana Republic for Spring 2011

Banana Republic previewed their spring collection yesterday and there's plenty to look forward to come February when the pieces hit stores. As was the trend on the Spring runways last month, the show opened with a series of white airy looks. The opening dress, a white maxi dress with eyelet detail, will be a perfect summer staple. Separates--boxy linen tops, military-style jackets and vests and cargo-esque shorts with tie-waists in neutrals, stayed closer to the brand's heritage. The shoes, Belmont wood sandals, were all paired with socks (it's still a thing) and looked mercifully easy to walk in. The finale dresses were the stand outs. The bright water-color floral print maxi dresses in silk added some much needed color to the spring collection. Especially that last pink floral number on Hanne Gaby Odiele with delicate silver sequins around the neckline. Take a look. **All images from Banana Republic and WWD
