Banana Republic’s Yorkdale store was bustling on Tuesday as plenty of shoppers showed up for a special shopping event hosted by the Globe and Mail’s Globe Recognition program.
Shoppers enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as they browsed the retailer’s winter collection at the enormous Yorkdale store.
Guests who were in the mood to splurge received a special discount on merchandise, and walked away with a special gift with purchase – a classy new Banana Republic umbrella.
The event also featured a presentation by Globe and Mail fashion editor Tiyana Grulovic, who discussed some of the biggest trends this season.
Here are some of her tips for fashionistas:
– Cords are back in a big way – literally. Grulovic recommends wide-legged cords for cozy look.
– Sequins and metallics are everywhere this season. If they’re a bit too bold for the office, Grulovic suggests choosing a knit dress with a touch of metallic thread (like this one) for a more subdued sparkle that’s appropriate for both work and play.
– To complete an outift, layer on the necklaces. The more the merrier!
