There’s something to be said for the classics. A brand with longevity that you can always rely on for quality basics is worth it’s weight in gold. Brooks Brothers has been a long-time favorite of mine for exactly this reason. If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning, you’ve probably noticed Brooks Brothers’ pieces peppered throughout my outfits for years. And this is because they pair so well with others, whether it be another classic piece or the trend of the moment. So when Brooks Brothers asked me to select one of their spring pieces to style in a post, I immediately went for one of those timeless pieces that they do so well. That doesn’t have to mean “boring” – this lovely shirt dress has the flattering silhouette that you can wear forever, but little details like the pink piping around the sleeves and fine polka dot print make it so much more interesting than the average shirt dress. I got major Betty Draper vibes when I put it on so I decided to go full-on glamorous retro housewife with the styling.
Oh and speaking of longevity, Brooks Brothers is celebrating their 200th anniversary this Saturday, April 7! Share your favorite Brooks Brothers memory on instagram and tag it with #BrooksBrothers200 to help them celebrate this big milestone!
