Banana Republic and J.Crew Are Fully Stocked For Holiday—26 Party Pieces to Shop

Despite the fact that it’s currently 70 degrees and sunny in New York City, the holiday season is fast approaching. And no matter how hard you try to keep your calendar from mid-November to early January as sparse as possible, it’s inevitable that a handful of invites will fall into your lap that require a positive RSVP. For those occasions that require your attendance, party looks are essential. Now all you have to do is figure out which ones. 

According to my latest market sweep, two retailers specifically have that area covered: J.Crew and Banana Republic. For two brands that, six months ago, would hardly be at the top of our holiday wishlists, J.Crew and Banana Republic are proving to be the ones to beat for party looks in 2022. Scroll down to shop out favorites.
