Yep, These 43 J.Crew and Banana Republic Items Look Pricey But Are Under $100

The return of J.Crew and Banana Republic in fashion has been something I haven’t been able to get out of my head. The mall was my favorite place during high school (wasn’t it every teenager’s?), and those two stores were probably the ones that I never walked in. (Back then, Forever 21 was more my vibe.) But now, they’ve become my favorite retailers to peruse. If you take a look at my evergrowing wish list, a Banana Republic bucket bag made out of Italian suede and a J.Crew cashmere sweater sits pretty at the top. I could go on about the gems I’ve found in the new-arrivals section, but today’s shopping discussion is all the under-$100 items you can find with the right amount of digging. 

Below, we’ve rounded up the most expensive-looking J.Crew and Banana Republic items that are somehow all under $100. Whether you’re on the hunt for a new pair of jeans or a winter-ready knit, the selection below has you covered. Keep scrolling to shop, and get ready for all the compliments you’ll receive once you wear them. (Don’t be surprised if people think you paid triple the price.)

This seriously looks designer.

Bye-bye, micro mini bags!

Wear with jeans, trousers, skirts—the options are endless.

The kind of shirt you’ll want to wear everyday.

While I love floor-length jeans, I still like a cropped silhouette to show off my shoes.

Hello, wardrobe staple!

This sweater would be great for layering.

This entire outfit is dreamy.

I’m predicting these selling out soon.

I know these are technically pajama shorts, but I think they’d look incredible with an oversize sweater and tall boots.

I own these in black and think I need the brown ones too.

Pair these with your loafers, flats, and sneakers. It creates such a nice detail, especially with the ballet-style trend that’s taken over.

I’m already stocking up on winter scarves.

I’m swooning over the ruffle detailing.

When you can’t decide between silver and gold, just opt for both.
